EE18ers ~ Character Interview by Diane Magras + Giveaway!

Character Interview Hi, everyone! I’m the medieval-obsessed author of The Mad Wolf’s Daughter, an epic adventure that takes place over six days in the lowlands of Scotland.

EE18ers ~ Music + Dance Playlist by Gloria Chao!

Dance Playlist! In American Panda, dance is the one place my protagonist can be herself, where age, race, looks, and intelligence don’t matter. When she’s gliding across the floor, she’s not Taiwanese or American—she’s just Mei. I’m so excited to share a collection of my favorite dance routines, many of which I watched for inspiration while writing. (Unfortunately, my favorite Chinese dance routines are not available online.)   Music Playlist! […]

EE18ers ~ Author Interview w/ Melissa Sarno + Giveaway!

Author Interview I noticed on your website that you’ve written children’s books previously, but JUST UNDER THE CLOUDS is your MG debut. Why did you decide to write a MG book? Cora, the main character of JUST UNDER THE CLOUDS, really dictated my ‘switch’ to middle grade. Her voice and story were very strong and insistent, straight from the beginning. As soon as I realized I was writing from the […]

EE18ers ~ Miles Away from You Aesthetics by A. B. Rutledge + Giveaway!

            Miles Away from You Aesthetics Long before I was a writer, I was an artsy kid. I’ve always loved painting, sketching, collaging, photography, and crafting. Naturally, when I began my first novel, I continued to rely on tools and techniques that inspired the visual arts portion of my brain. Finding Pinterest was a game-changer for me. And sometimes a distraction. I can spend hours […]

EE18ers ~ Author Interview w/ Rachel Lynn Solomon + Giveaway!

Author Interview   I noticed you sang in a band when you were younger! Did you draw on any of that experience while writing? Yes, I played guitar/keyboard, sang, and wrote songs for my all-girl band in high school! Our songs were mainly about boys who didn’t like me back. I definitely feel like I’ve drawn on some of that experience as a writer of YA. My favorite emotion to […]

EE18ers ~ Playlist by Lyndsay Ely!

    Music Playlist Confession: I’ve never been a fan of the question “What music do you like to listen to while you write?” It reminds me too much of being asked the non-writing version of that question over the years, and the anxiety that there was always a right answer and, if I was honest, whatever I said would not be it. Yeah, I was never the person with […]
