What project are you working on now?
When I Let You Go is releasing on February 8, 2018, so right now I'm working on getting the word out to as many people as possible. This is the last book in the Let Me series. It's almost like saying goodbye to a set of characters I've been with for a long time, so it's bittersweet. So while I've been working on marketing (least favorite aspect of this business), I've also been immersed in my new project. The working title is Starry Eyed and I'm really excited about it! It's a coming of age love story. I'll be posting a teaser for Charlotte and Simon's story soon.
Do you listen to music when you write?
Sometimes, but I'm at my best when I'm completely in the zone. Having said that, I'm a music lover and many plot ideas do come to me while I'm tuned in. Lately I'm into Dawes, the Decemberists, the Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Dire Straits (always and forever), the Shins and Tame Impala. I'm typically listening to WFUV (90.7 in New York) or my own playlists.
Lately I seem to have Lake Song (Decemberists), October (Broken Bells), I Can't Stay(the Killers) and Moonlight on the Water (Dawes) playing on repeat.
