I mentioned yesterday that I was doing a cover reveal and giving the blurb out over on the author blog! If you're interested, it's posted and here's a link:
One night, I had this idea for a story and started writing it down as fast as I could on my computer. Later that night, Kate facetimed me for help on our math homework, and I told her about my idea from a novel. She started giving me really good advice about the story and helped me develop the first chapter. I emailed her the draft for more help and then we decided that we should both work on it as co-authors
I’d say it took about 6-8 months to build our first draft. It was relatively short compared to what it is now (KSO now is about 24 chapters with an epilogue, and our first draft was 16). There were times when we had writers block, so that’s when we turned to our peers and asked what they thought the story needed. The advice helped us spark new ideas for future chapters, and when one of us got stuck, the other would continue writing.
There’s so many to choose from, but right now, probably Olly Bright from “Everything, Everything”. I just connect to him so well.
We both are continuing to write, but no, we are not going to be writing together. The way that we wrote KSO we aren’t able to do now because of the distance between us, since she is now in Indiana while I am in Florida. Also, we developed different stories along the way that we want to try and complete by ourselves. Personally, I loved co-authoring our novel, but I’m excited to find my own individual voice in writing.
I am a huge movie nerd- always have been. I’m obsessed with monster movies, especially shark movies (both good ones and bad ones). My dream is to create a story that can be turned into film. I love writing romance stories, because I am a hopeless romantic myself, but I’ve always been intrigued to write perhaps a trilogy, or just a stand-alone, dystopian book.
I think being stranded with Kyle, Camryn’s older brother, wouldn’t be that bad. He’s funny, creative, smart, and very protective, so I would definitely feel secure with him around.
