Interview With Emily Giffin, Author of All We Ever Wanted + Giveaway

Emily Giffin is the gold standard when it comes to women’s fiction. Her success surges past a writer’s wildest dreams into the realm of the fantastical, encompassing everything from multiple New York Times bestsellers to movie deals to dozens of translations around the world. I think it’s fair to say she’s struck a chord with her readers; in fact, during a recent event in my city, the woman sitting next…

Book Two and the Reviewers in My Ear

I wrote The Exalted, the sequel to The Diminished, in late 2016 and early 2017. By the time I began editing The Diminished, I’d already written the sequel as well as another book. By the time reviews started rolling in, I was already halfway through the initial edit on The Exalted. I turned in my first round of major revisions the day The Diminished was released. In a lot of ways, I think that gave me…

Being An Author Is A Lot Like Teaching Long Division

Ah…the next book. The Everest for debut authors. When you say I’m working on my second book, non-writers will say Great! Can’t wait to read it, as if that’s a guaranteed outcome. But other writers will give you a sympathetic look and say, Oh dear. How’s it going? and then possibly offer you alcohol.   I’ve discovered that writing as a career is a lot like teaching long division to…

Kimmery’s Next Book: The Subject May Surprise You

My next book is not going to be the book I wanted to write.  I bumbled into the literary world without much of an understanding of what happens when you publish a novel. Like the hypothetical bride who doesn’t think beyond the altar, I was hyper-focused on querying and didn’t research much of the intricacies of the publishing process itself. To be fair, I couldn’t research much of the behind-the-scenes…

Mama, Mama, Only Mama! Lara Lillibridge Discusses Book 2

Stories, Blogs, and Hacked Recipes for the Newly Single Mother Being a single mother means relaxing your cleanliness standards. A lot. Being a single mother means missing your kids like crazy when your ex has them, only to want to give them back ten minutes after they come home. Being a single mother means accepting sleep deprivation as a natural state. Being a single mother means hauling a toddler, a…

Book Two: Blessing or Curse?

When I sold From Unseen Fire, I got that coveted thing: a multi-book deal. Three, in fact! A guarantee that the story would go on, and we could stop trying to sell the blatant lie that the first book was “a standalone with series potential”. How magnificent! I could traipse merrily into Book Two in a state of security and confidence. After all, I’d already written some scenes, back when…

Interview with Rebecca Fish Ewan and GIVEAWAY

I’m so excited to introduce everyone to Rebecca Fish Ewan, author of By the Forces of Gravity. I met Rebecca last year at Hippocamp, Hippocampus Magazine’s annual Creative Nonfiction conference. She approached me after my breakout session on Experimental Writing and talked about her work, which combined drawings and free verse. It was exactly the type of thing I wanted to add to my presentation, so I was extremely grateful! She even…

Taking From Our World to Build Something New

Much like Cass, I am, by training, as much a historian as I am a writer. I took more history classes in college than I did English classes by a fairly wide margin. (I don’t, however, have a history degree because I stupidly refused to take one class, taught by a racist old white dude, that was not taught by anyone else and required for the degree. Way to go,…
