Author Interview and giveaway of The Divide

http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/119 ... mment_form eee!


edit 1-16 My publisher is hosting a giveaway of The Divide Book 1: Uprising. I finally posted a link!

This Sunday is the release date of the e-version of The Divide through my publisher, and the Amazon release of the paperback!

January 2013, through Queerteen Press! I considered finding an agent for this one, but decided to try the publishing company I already have a rapport with, especially since the odds were high on a publication sooner rather than later. My book is a YA dystopia, and I wanted it published while dystopias are still in high demand!

I first got the idea for this book when I was about 22 or 23. But it never went anywhere other than a page of vague ideas and the title. A prompt last summer on the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Forum here for a contest is what brought The Divide back to life, and it became a short story. Then I decided to try to make it a novella. Instead it became a novel!

Mucho congrats! I love how you described the evolution of your story, I love when small things grow into huge ones (and I especially love when 'dead stories' come alive and become the strongest ideas ever).

I had never heard of Queerteen press but I had a look at their website and I love it! I have a couple of LBGT teens in my extended family, one of whom is a voracious reader (and if I have my way, she will soon be a budding writer, mwa ha ha!). Not that long ago she was complaining about how annoying she finds it that she can rarely find books with LBGT characters where their sexuality isn't some kind of focus or 'sideshow attraction' as she put it. She wants to read more stuff about LGBT just LIVING LIFE like everyone else. I'm definitely passing on the website for Queerteen to her, I think she might love it too.

Maybe she'll end up buying your book! :D

awesome Gloriana! Yeah I definitely like having books where the characters are diverse, but that doesn't mean the book is necessarily *about* that, it's just part of who they are.

I hope you both like the stories at Queerteen Press, including mine when they become available!
