Blogversary G!veaway #4- Going Under by Georgia Cates

Blogversary G!veaway #4- Going Under by Georgia Cates

Today I have an interview with Author of Going Under, Georgia Coates! Thanks so much for being here with us today 🙂 Thank you having me as a guest. It is a pleasure to be featured today. 1.  Describe Going Under in a tweet. (140 characters or less) Intense romance between an ambitious boy from the wrong side of the tracks and a girl struggling to find herself outside her perfect world. 2.  I love reading books from a guys point of view. Do you think it’s easier to write a girl’s POV or a guy?  Girl’s POV is so much easier. When you write from a guy’s POV, you have to choose if you’re going to write the way a guy would actually be thinking or if you’ll tone it down. What does this mean? Let’s face it. If I wrote the way a guy actually thought about women and sex, we probably wouldn’t like his character very much. I have to tone it down. A lot. And sometimes… Read more »

{Guest Post+G!veaway} Cursing Athena by Lisa Sanchez

Today I have a guest post from Author of Cursing Athena, Lisa Sanchez and a giveaway of the book. Thank you so much for being here today Lisa! Owning your writing style and feeling good about it If you’re a book junkie like me, and you stalk author’s and book reviewer’s blogs for the latest and greatest, then the words “plotter” and “panster” should sound very familiar to you. If not, no need to worry. Rest assured, I’m going to give you a quick rundown before I continue on with my post. Plotter- this particular brand of author prefers to “plot out” the events that will happen in their novel before they begin writing. They’re very organized, and often use tools such as timelines, charts and detailed synopses to aid them in completing their story. There are no surprises. They know exactly where their story is going before they start typing the first paragraph. Panster- this brand of author flies by the seat of their pants. They don’t plan ahead…. Read more »
