I’ve been writing about debut novelists monthly on The Hub, and I thought I’d offer up something a little different in addition to that regular feature this month: an interview with four former debut authors who’ve published their sophomore efforts in 2012. I asked them a series of questions about what the process of writing that next book was like, how it differed from their first book, and more. The authors I interviewed were:
- Carrie Harris, author of Bad Taste in Boys (a 2012 Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers title) and the just-released Bad Hair Day
- Elana Johnson, author of Possession and the sequel, Surrender
- Alissa Grosso, author of Popular and this year’s Ferocity Summer
- Julia Karr, author of XVI and the companion, Truth
Talk a bit about your experience as a debut author.
