Ask a Tenner!

For our readers:

*Want to know how we found our agents?

*What survival food we munch on as we struggle through revisions?

*If we had any say in our cover art?

*Why Berk has short hair when he looks so cool with that prom-fro?

Ask in comments!

Then, in turn, we'll post your question and the Tenners can answer below.

Feel free to ask general questions that we can all answer or ask a specific Tenner.

Let the games begin!

And I'll be the first to answer!
Definitely intimidated about the marketing piece. There are just soooo many things to consider - website, blog, mailings, collateral, twitter, interviews, and on and on.

It's so hard to know what will make an impact, really reach and interest people and everything seems like such an investment of time (of which there is so little). I'm totally cool putting in the effort if I'm connecting with people, but am worried about wasting time I SHOULD be using toward the next book on things that won't be effective.

What songs do you listen to when writing, either for inspiration or not? And will you provide us with a playlist for your book? ;)
seaheidi
Jun. 2nd, 2009 07:02 pm (UTC)
I listen to evocative ocean-themed songs, like Kate Melua's version of JUST LIKE HEAVEN. Or Yaz's ONLY YOU.

Most recently I like LUCKY because the lyrics fit the book so well, but is upbeat and happy.

I will try and rig up a playlist. =;

OMGOMGOMG

Okay firstly, I agree with Vania's second question. Because we're all totally excited to read your books.

Second, this is a question I already asked Trish in the chat this weekend (awesome answers), but I want to know what everyone else wants:

If you could have written any book/song/movie ever written/sung/made, which would it be?

More questions to come!

Oh! I'll answer!

I would have written the movie "Heathers" and any of Edith Wharton's books.

Ooh can you tell us something unique about your book? And who's your favourite character and why?

Jun. 2nd, 2009 07:22 pm (UTC)
I think that NICE AND MEAN is at least unusual in that it has a South Asian protagonist who is saying, in effect, "I love that there are lots of South Asians in the National Spelling Bee, but what if some of us want to be known as creative, too?"

As for favorite character--do you mean our own books, or others'? I certainly wouldn't say that my favorite character ever is the one that I created, because I don't want to sideline my tv squeeze, House, MD!

What is the hardest thing about writing?Hardest character? Hardest bump in the road?

Too many ideas--not enough time to write them. Now, if I moved to a cabin in the woods (a dream of mine) I might one day be able to get all of these voices out of my head. But... since that isn't going to happen any time soon, I struggle finding the time to write the amount of books I want to.

Oh, and trying to find better ways to used the word "said".

I think the hardest thing is getting ready to write. Once you're sitting down it's fine, it's the getting there that's a problem.


The hardest thing for me in the new book was following my character to the very controversial ending for Dirty Little Secrets. It was the only logical way for the book to end, but I think there will be a bit of a backlash when it comes out next year. I don't want kids to think of it as a "how to" manual - it's just the story of one girl.

I figure the hardest bump in the road will be the first bad review ;)

I think for me it's sitting down and committing my brain to it. There are so many distractions. Internet! TV! Guitar Hero! Dog park! Beach!

The hardest bump has definitely been getting pulled from my publisher's list. It's an ego blow, to be sure, but it's also a setback in terms of timeline. Will I be published in 2010 now? Will I be published at all? That's a little scary!

ONOZ! We're all sending lots of happy thoughts your way, Trish.

But I agree - Guitar Hero is totally standing between me and my goals. Must... not... touch... plastic... guitar...

Okay, here's my next question. This time I'm going to be a little mean and make you guys pick least favorites. Heehee *evil grin*

So tell me... have you ever read a character who's really popular/well-loved in the YA realm, but you honestly could see what the fuss was all about?

I'll go a little easy and give a little leeway in the genres... but it has to be a literary character!

And no, you can't pick Edward. =D

One thing I'm always wondering. Why that age group? Do you choose to write for that particular age group, or did it just happen that way?

In college I majored in creative writing and i thought i was writing adult short-stories, but with young protagonists. Turns out it was YA. (writers are always the last to know these things. =;)

SEA is being marketed as a crossover for teens and adults.

And I want to know what your biggest fear is...

oh worry not, iheartmonster, by the time his book debuts he WILL have that prom-fro back if I have anything to say about it!

My biggest fear. A zombie apocalypse and people hating my book.
