Author A.V. Geiger Talks About Her Secret Inspiration for FOLLOW MW BACK’S Eric Thorn (with a giveaway!)

The secret inspiration behind fictional pop star Eric Thorn Hello my bookish friends! I’m so grateful to Becky on Books for featuring Follow Me Back, my YA romantic thriller set in the fictional online fandom of a pop star. I know a thing or two about this subject. As an author, I cut my teeth on Wattpad, writing fanfic stories about a real band. (Nope! It wasn’t One Direction… or Justin Bieber…) I’m asked all the time whether my male main character, Eric Thorn, is based on a real celebrity. Let me take this opportunity to set the record straight.…

Sara Wolf, Author of LOVE ME NEVER (Lovely Viscious #1) Talks About Finding Inspiration (with a giveaway!)

Finding Inspiration Do you ever have those pieces of media you can’t get enough of? For some people it’s a series on Netflix, for some it’s a book series. No matter what it is, you have to have more of it right this second or you’ll die. It consumes you, and before you know it you’ve stayed up until three am reading/watching and your eyes are killing you but your mind is racing. How could that character do that? Why did that character cheat on that other character? If you’re extremely obsessed, you’ll start thinking up different scenarios – what…

Lisa Nicolas, Author of AS LOST AS I GET, Talks About Her Writing Inspiration (with a giveaway!)

Lisa Nicholas gets inspired by a classic! “I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I even read one of your books.” It’s funny the things that stick with us and influence us years later. In 1984, a movie came out called Romancing the Stone, staring Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas. You’re probably familiar with it: Joan Wilder is a reclusive but wildly popular romance novelist, and when her sister gets kidnapped in Colombia, Joan has to face everything she fears about the outside world (which is pretty much everything) to go save her. Along the way, she meets the dashing (if…

Caroline Lee, Author of BROTHERS OF BAIRD’S COVE: RENEGADE Talks About Her Heroine (with a Giveaway!)

Author Caroline Lee talks about her inspiration for her latest heroine… It’s not that I’m clumsy, it’s just that I really like hugging the floor. Often. With great force. You could say I’m accident prone, but don’t way it too loudly, or I might get distracted and bump into something. You see, I’ve always been the one who is covered in bruises and scrapes, and I knew that I had to write a character just like me. That’s why Becks Middleton, the heroine of Renegade, is just as accident-prone as I am. She meets McKee Baird when she tumbles out…

 I don’t know about you, but I love hearing about how authors got their ideas! Inspiration for DOMINO EFFECT: DOMINO EFFECT is the last book The Effect Series. The Effect Series is a spinoff from the TRUST Series. You meet Adam Ryker, from RIPPLE EFFECT (book 1 of the 2 book series), in the PROMISE ME.

As I was writing RIPPLE EFFECT, I knew…

Author Jen Naumann Tells Us What Inspired Her to Write PARANORMAL KEEPERS (plus a Giveaway!)

I love hearing about what exactly inspired authors to write specific stories… Why I was inspired to write Paranormal Keepers Being a full-time writer is probably one of the biggest challenges I’ve had to face in my lifetime. There’s marketing, working with editors and cover designers, effectively portraying the best version of a story, keeping up with social media, deciding on what price to sell a book and when it should go on sale…the list is endless. Add being a farmer’s wife (who actively drives tractor to help out) and parent of two very sociable teenagers and I often feel…

Author Bridie Hall (MY SUMMER ROOMMATE) Talks About Inspiration (with Giveaways!)

Anyone else not ready to let summer go yet? Maybe reading this book can help! 😉 (And yeah, more writing talk. I am determined to be better prepared for NaNo this year!) Where Do You Get Your Inspiration From? First, I’d like to thank you for hosting me on your blog today. One of the most often asked questions a writer hears is about where they get their inspiration from. One of the most often answers is: everywhere. Just like every book is different, so the inspiration for each book comes from different places, people, or events. Everything can, indeed,…
