As seen in the February issue of Uncaged Book Reviews.
Uncaged: You just released your fourth book in the Sixth Street Band Series, Lost for You. Can you give the readers more information about this series? How many books are planned for this series, or is it open-ended?
The series is open ended at the moment. The idea for Sixth Street Bands came to me in 2005-ish while I was driving on this backroad by Lake Travis in Austin. I always picture it as three bands. Right now, though, I just want to get book five finished. Logan’s book.
Uncaged: What does an average day of writing look like for you?
A writing day… Hm…what’s that? Lol. Ever since I released Missing From Me, I’ve been doing a lot of promotion, so my days aren’t just writing anymore. My ideal writing day consists of three to four hours of writing in the morning, interacting with readers for a little while in the early afternoon, then three more hours in the evening.
Uncaged: I read the post on your blog about reviews – and as a matter of fact, you have some great blog posts. Do you still have need for that drawer with the Hershey bar stash?
I’ll always have that drawer. Bad reviews sting. It’s hard putting your work out there for people to critique. I love all my characters and when someone doesn’t connect with them it makes me feel like I’ve let the character down. And the reader.
Uncaged: Can you tell us what you have coming up next? (Please tell me Logan is involved soon):)
Uncaged: What is one of the nicest things someone has said to you about your books?
That they identified with the characters. That they forgot they were rockstars.
Uncaged: What is your favorite parts about being an author? What have you found to be the least favorite?
My favorite part is the readers. I love the readers. My least favorite part would have to be trying to make sure I don’t let down the readers. 🙂 Double edged sword.
Uncaged: What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?
Spend time with my husband and daughter. Doing anything with them
Uncaged: What is the hardest part of a book to write? What is the easiest?
OMG. The first 3-5 chapters KILL me. I never know where to start. The end of the book is the easiest. I always know how it’s going to end.
Uncaged: What would you like to say to fans, and where can they follow you?
Thank you so much for reading my stories. I try to put a piece of myself in every book.
