Ask Me Anything!

So....

Working on a deadline here.

BUT! I actually have ALL my posts for next week planned! HaHA! It involves pink (see picture below) but...they're planned!

But after that, I can foresee myself juggling actual need-to-do work (read: finishing edits on Book 2) and not-actually-necessary-to-do work (read: blogging). Which makes it the perfect time for me to do an "Ask Me Anything!" call out!

So, go ahead! Ask me anything! Leave questions in the comments, and I'll tackle them the week after next! If I'm still alive after edits.

Have you ever doubted your writing when you decided to publish your work? I love writing and want to share my stories with everyone but I am scared that others wouldn't like them. What do you tell yourself if you ever have doubt and make it stay away?

How do you balance real life with writing and how do make time for each without going insane? Also, any tips on plowing through a frist draft?

Thanks! :)

What's the password for the eye lens on the telescope in your header? It's always drove me nuts-- the unknown extras hidden behind a cyber door.

Lynsey Newton said...

When can you reveal the title and even cover for book two? ;)

Also, Natalie had a good question about how to start the second book in a series without info dumping?

Your promotion and marketing efforts for the launch of ATU were extremely impressive. Would you consider putting together a list of the marketing efforts you did, as a helpful guide to others planning a book launch? Thanks!

I have two questions! :)
Out of curiosity, how many words long is ATU? (I really enjoyed it, by the way!! Kiersten White was spot-on when she said it made her feel claustrophobic...)
What is the nicest/awesomest thing anyone has ever said about ATU?
Thanks!

Girl I loved ATU! I bought it the day it came out and finished it and gave it to my younger sis, and now we are waiting patiently (and by patiently I mean chewing our fingernails down to the nubs) for book 2.

Ahem, anyway, my question is: what is the biggest difference in your life post-publication?

Do you ever get writer's block? I always get that problem when I see what I want to write in my head, yet I can't put it in to words. Is that even writer's block? I'm just wondering what you do, I guess, to let the creativity flow.
