I’m very pleased to have YA author Abbie Silk with me this month.
What are you currently working on and what is it about?
I’m currently working on a YA fantasy novel about a princess who gets stuck back in time with her sisters and courted by a demon prince. I’m also working on a short story about a snobby teen chef who goes on a mission trip and changes her whole outlook on life.
Interesting. How often do you write, and do you have a special time during the day to write?
I try to write every day except for Sunday. I usually write in the morning, right after breakfast. I usually sit on the couch sideways, or lay on my bed, or sit outside on my little picturesque bench.
Sounds downright dreamy. What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?
Getting started each morning. I feel like I’ve forgotten to do something before I start. It’s been easier when I do writing prompts before I start writing. Writing prompts are gold!
Definitely. What are your views on social media for marketing, and which of them have worked best for you?
I believe that social media is a great marketing tool for authors. I’m only on Pinterest right now, but I’ve created visuals about my story.
One of my characters would love the braids on your Pinterest site! Do you think that the cover plays an important part in the buying process?
Yes! The cover is often the first part of the book that you see. If they haven’t taken the time to make the cover nice, you wonder what shortcuts they made inside the book.
Thanks for taking the time to chat with me today. Best of luck with all your endeavors.
