Last week I reviewed The Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T. Michelle and as a follow up here is a short interview with her that she kindly did with me. If you want to know more about P.T. or her books, visit her website at http://www.ptmichelle.com/.
How does writing YA fiction compared to what you normally write?
YA fiction has a very broad range. I LOVE that freedom. 🙂
Would you want to be able to dream your next day like Nara?
I don’t think I’d want to dream my whole next day. I like to live life in the moment, not know about stuff ahead of time, especially if it turns out to be something I can’t change or help to change. I would feel so responsible and guilty if I couldn’t do anything about it.
Could you give any advice to people like me contemplating self-publishing a novel?
Self publishing is a conscious choice. With it comes tremendous freedom, but also 100% of the responsibility. From writing, to editing, to copy editing, to publishing, to cover art and of course marketing, it’s all up to you. But you also get to control your entire story, the price, the format, the cover, the blurb…and if something doesn’t work, you can always go back and tweak a blurb or a cover. That flexibility is wonderful!
How do you handle the bad and good reviews? (though this book has mainly good reviews from what I found-this was one reason I chose to buy and review it)
Books are subjective. Not everyone is going to like your story. So you handle good and bad reviews the same way, by thanking the reviewer for taking the time to read your story.
Any hint-hint as to who or what Ethan is??
You’ll find out more in LUCID. 🙂
Thanks for the interview, P.T.!
The Brightest Kind of Darkness is available at Amazon.com
