Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

New Release & Giveaway: CHOICES by Sydney Lane

Out today! You can buy it HERE.

Blurb:

 Fate brought her here, but will her choices destroy her dreams?

 Quincy Priest made all the right choices in her small town, black-and-white life. But being perfect is tiring. So. Very. Tiring.

 Wanting desperately to step out of her sister's shadow, Quincy jumps at the opportunity to attend college with her best friend. The quiet bookworm with family secrets comes out of her shell. ...But when Quincy meets not one, but two perfect guys, she has to make a choice. In doing so, she might forfeit the relationship she secretly longed to find.

 Declan. Sweet, handsome, and perfect. He makes her feel cherished for the first time in her life.

 Brody. Sexy, hot, and irresistible. He could tear down her carefully built walls.

 Before she can become the woman she wants to be, Quincy will make mistakes. And suffer one unimaginable loss.



Interview with the author: 

Thanks Sydney for agreeing to an interview ;)


1- How do you hope Choices will inspire or help Young/New Adults?
Choices is very near and dear to my heart, and I would hope to inspire young adults to be aware of who they are and where they are headed in life. I also hope this book is a platform for teen bullying and depression awareness.

2- How long did it take you to write the novel?
I have a full-tme job, so I didn't have a lot of free time. I wrote it in 3months, but I'm still working on edits. From start time ot publish date, it will be 5 months.

3- What was your method for writing Choices- did you plan it out or fly by the seat of your pants?
I probably used an unusual approach in that.... I didn't really have one! I actually wrote the ending first. From there, I just wrote wherever the characters took me. There was no plan, only the ending. You might be interested in knowing that the ending actually changed! Over time, I came to love my characters and to think of them differently. The ending I built the whole book around was not the ending you will read.

4- If you had to pick one character from your book that you loved the most, who would it be and why?
Jenna. She is a culmination of several friends I've had throughout my life. When writing for her, she always made me smile. She is the kind of friend everyone wishes they had, and I feel so blessed to have had "them" in my life.

5- If you could cast your main characters in the Hollywood movie version, who would play them?

Quince - Rachel Bilson


Jenna - blonde Emma Stone


Eric - Alex Pettyfr 

Declan - Dave Franco 

Brody - Henry Cavill
