Welcome back BookTasty friends!
Have you heard of YALL Fest yet? Well, it’s going to be an exciting YA Book Festival in Charleston, SC on November 9! Also, (and this is the kicker) 50 crazy awesome YA authors will be there! People like Maire Lu, Allie Condie, Libba Bray, Heather Brewer, Rae Carson, Veronica Roth and today’s interviewee Lisa McMann!
What one thing do you need to have when you write?
Best writing tip you ever received?
“Think of the one thing your main character would never, ever do. Now make her do it.”
What are you working on now?
We’ll be ramping up the releases of books 5, 6, and 7 in the Unwanteds series, so I’m working on Unwanteds book 5 right now.
What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
I really enjoy writing in a variety of genres, from realistic to paranormal to dystopian fantasy. At the moment, fantasy is winning, but that could change at any moment. My favorite genre to read is memoir.
At what point in the development of an idea do you know that it will become a full-length novel?
As soon as I have a one line concept that gives me a little shiver.
Well, I’m excited to have the opportunity to meet Lisa McMann, along with my favorite YA authors at this year’s YALL Fest! Who are you most excited to see?
