10 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Being an Author… It’s hard What is sleep? Coffee becomes your best friend and foe.

No matter rain or shine, the journey is worth it.   Author Bio: Yumoyori…

Amber Mitchell, Author of WAR OF THE WILTED (Garden of Thorns #2), Talks About Books and Writing (with a giveaway!)

Welcome, Amber! What 5 things should readers know about you? I write fight scenes and kiss scenes almost the same way. They are both about action and feelings and high stakes so I approach them with a similar mindset! When I’m not writing, I make 3D papercut shadowboxes and travel to different comic conventions to sell them. I love nerd culture and participating in conventions is such a wonderful way to foster that. I talk about Scotland… a lot. I recently took a trip to Scotland, fell madly in love, left part of my heart there and am constantly scheming…

Karole Cozzo, Author of THE GAME CAN’T LOVE YOU BACK, Tells Us 10 Things She Wished Someone Had Told Her About Being an Author (with a giveaway!)

Ten things I wish someone had told me about being an author… 10) There are times you will be a slave to word count. Especially if you are unendingly wordy like I am! Especially if you write YA or MG, sub-genres where the word counts are particularly restricted. You may suffer bouts of anxiety as you watch the word count creep up, running calculations to determine where the number you’re likely to reach by the time you type “the end.” You may long for the days of writing fifty-plus chapter fanfics with nary an editor telling you to keep it…

A Day in the Life of Alexa Randolph, Author of WITH LOVE, ELLA (with a giveaway!)

A day in the life of the author One thing I have learned as I have started writing and publishing novels is that there are never enough hours in the day. There is always so much I want to do in a day in regards to writing, promoting, research, reading and other day –to- day activities. Every day I have a laundry list of things I want to get done and most days I am lucky if I am able to get five things done. A typical day for me starts when I wake up and go to my writing…

Kendra C. Highley, Author of THE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT MATCH (Suttonville Sentinels #3) Talks About the Best and Worst Writing Advice She Ever Got (with a giveaway!)

The best (and/or worst!) writing advice I ever got was… When you’re new to writing and joining critique groups to improve your craft, the advice flows like milk and honey. For any parents out there, it’s a lot like when you have a new baby and experienced parents can’t wait to share their wisdom. The hard part in either case is knowing what works and what doesn’t. The best piece(s) of advice I received when I was starting out were: Read in your genre, and don’t quit. Both of those things are hard, believe it or not. I was an…

C.D. Bell, Author of WEREGIRL, Tells Us, “There is No ‘I’ in Wolf”

There is no “I” in Wolf By C.D. Bell, author of Weregirl Reading Weregirl, most people don’t know that it wasn’t written by a single author, but by a team of writers and editors working at the Vermont publisher Chooseco. “How does that work?” my writer friends ask. Skeptically. Most assume that writing is an activity best conducted in solitary confinement. At the base of this belief is the idea that multiple voices will muddy the purity of intention that only a solitary writer can achieve. Nothing is more dreadful, the thinking goes, than what is created “by committee.” But after…

Kate SeRine, Author of SAFE FROM HARM (Protect & Serve #2), Talks About Staying True to Each Dawson Brother’s “Voice” (with a giveaway!)

Loved it! Check out my review here. How do you stay true to each brother’s voice? Do you have a mood board or trick you use to get inside each brother’s head? I set up a music playlist that’s chosen specifically to represent that brother’s personality as well as the tone of the plot, the nature of the relationship between the main characters, etc. They’re usually pretty extensive, consisting of a few dozen songs. Music is a huge part of my writing process, so when it’s time to immerse myself in that brother’s story, I have an entire soundtrack. 🙂…
