Author Interview: Kate Scott

2014-debut-authors-bash-banner

Welcome to one of today’s stops for the 2014 Debut Authors Bash, hosted by YAReads!

I am SUPER excited introduce all of you to Kate Scott! Kate Scott debuted in February with her stand alone, young adult novel Counting to D and she is here today to talk to us about it!

Hey, Kate Scott! Welcome to Between Printed Pages, we’re so happy to have you here today~

I’m excited to be here!

Before we start, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I tend to keep myself very busy and always have a million things going on in my life. I’ve always loved making up stories, so even though publishing is new to me, writing isn’t. In addition to being an author, I’m also an engineer, and a mentor to at-risk-youth. Basically, I enjoy adventure in real life, and when real life gets dull, I make up fiction.

As a debut author, you must to extremely excited (and nervous) about getting your work out there. What/Who inspired you to start writing?

That’s a tough question to answer, because making up stories is something I’ve always loved. My uncle was a professional artist who passed away a few years ago. Even though we create in very different mediums, he was probably one of my biggest inspirations. He proved to me that creative people can actually make a career out of creating things.

18518158How has your life contributed to Counting to D? Why did you believe that this story had to be told?

Sam, the main character in Counting to D, is dyslexic. I am also dyslexic, and it is definitely not an accident that my first novel has a dyslexic main character. I’ve always felt that dyslexia isn’t accurately depicted in fiction and wanted to share an honest account of the teenage dyslexic experience. That being said, this book is still very much fiction. It’s just fiction with a personal touch.

What is your writing process like? What was the hardest part about writing Counting to D?

I’m definitely a pantser. I’ve tried outlining, but it just doesn’t work for me. When I’m drafting, I tend to write very fast, which is fabulous, but then I need to spend A LOT of time revising. Making sure all the various scenes that pop into my head actually fit together into something resembling a plot is probably the hardest thing for me. Well, that and spelling. I’m a very bad speller. But that’s what copy editors are for.

What was the publishing process like for you? What is your advice for others who are trying to get their stories out there?

I had a well-respected literary agent for about two years before I opted to pursue indie-publishing. Figuring out how to get books in brick-and-mortar stores without a traditional publisher is a challenge, but I’m still very glad I opted to go the indie route. The publishing world is changing a lot, and authors have the option to gain a lot more artistic freedom as a result.

So I guess my advice for pre-published authors, is don’t be afraid to dream big and imagine your own publication path. It doesn’t have to be the same dream as you had a decade ago, because the publishing landscape today is very different than it was even a year ago.

What are three songs that describe Counting to D?

I Wanna Be Like Me by Sara Bareilles

Tell Me a Story by Phillip Phillips

Underdog by Imagine Dragons

What are three books you believe everyone should take a chance on?

Counting to D, The Evolution of Emily, and … Just kidding. The problem with this question is that the world has way more than three fabulous books!

I’m going to say My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick, Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen, and Wintergirls by Laurie Halts Anderson. Those are three of my favorite books, although they are only three books on a very long list.

Aside from reading and writing, what do you do in7276965 your spare time? Any unusual hobbies?

I love camping and hiking, although that isn’t very unusual. I’m also a big fan of video games, and jigsaw puzzles. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my friends and family.

Oh, my husband collects rusty metal. That is definitely unusual! I don’t want to fully claim this hobby for myself, because it’s way too easy to make fun of, but I do own a century old steam powered tractor. So yeah, maybe I’m a bit more eccentric than I like to pretend.

Last, but not least, what is your favourite word?

Life. Because the only value words have is their meaning and life is my favorite thing.

Thank you so much, Kate Scott, for taking the time to answer our questions! Congratulations on your debut release, and we hope to see more from you soon!

You won’t have to wait too long. My sophomore novel, The Evolution of Emily, is coming out this November.

Thanks again for having me here today; it was a lot of fun.

Book Blitz: The Reason I Stay

Welcome to The Reason I Stay Book Blitz, hosted by Xpresso Book Tours !~

ReasonIStayTitle: The Reason I Stay
Author: Patty Maximini
Publication Date: September 10. 2014
Genre: New Adult Romance
GoodReads

Synopsis:

Jack Daniels is the cure to all evils.

Sex should be casual and, preferably, anonymous.

Giving a damn is for nurses, philanthropists and suicide hotlines.

My name is Mathew Rogers and those are the values I built my adult life around. They are also the reason I had to forsake everything I loved in Seattle and embark on a solitary road trip across the country, with no direction other than searching for the next small town, the next girl, and the closest liquor store. 

Boredom, frustration and a series of unfortunate decisions led me to the rickety-ass town of Jolene, Alabama—a town I wanted to leave behind from the moment I passed the welcome sign. But it was there where I met her. The girl who made me question everything I’ve always believed in, and the only one who has ever had the power to break my heart. 

Her name is Lexie. 

She’s beautiful, and I’m pretty sure she hates me.

And for once in my life, I give enough of a damn that I keep finding a reason to stay.

Excerpt:

Tanie laughs, and raises a brow. “He’s hot.”

“That he is,” I reply.

Jill yells, “Water break,” behind us.

The two girls abandon the ball and run breathless toward us, Matthew trailing behind.

“You, too, Matthew.” She waves him over and, to my absolutely horror, adds, “These gals thought you might be hot. Actually, they both said you were, and by the looks of the sweat in your hair, I think a little water break’ll be good for you.”

“Is that right?” He quirks his lips as he strides casually toward Jill.

His gaze travels from Jill to me to Tanie, and then back to me, where it lingers. I’m at the same time humiliated and dying to roll on my back and laugh until my stomach hurts, but all I can do is stare at him. His eyes are wide and filled with mirth. He stops right in front of me.

“You all think right. I’m really hot.”

Day 30: A Book You Read In The Past 30 Weeks That You Think Everyone Should Read

I’m going to list three books that I’ve read this year that I think everyone should take a look at.

1) Podium Finish by Beth Pond

PodiumFinish

With six months until the Olympic Games, seventeen-year-old Harper’s life is pretty much perfect. She’s fighting for the starting spot on Team USA Women’s Hockey, and for the first time ever, she has a crush on a guy who likes her back. She feels like the luckiest girl in the world, until she runs a risky play at practice and breaks her knee, thereby sentencing herself to six weeks in a cast and possibly ending her Olympic dream before it even starts.

For seventeen-year-old Alex, being anything less than the best is unacceptable. That’s why, after a miserable debut season at the senior level, the former junior national singles champion switches to ice dance. Her skating partner, Ace, is an “all skating all the time” type of guy, which would be fine, if he’d stop keeping secrets about the real reason he and his former partner broke up. Now is not the time for second thoughts, but how can Alex skate her best if she can’t trust her partner…or herself?

As the pressure to make the Olympic team builds, the girls must rely on each other, because if there’s one thing they both know, it’s that the only thing harder than skating to the top is staying there.

 

2) Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan

 

 

20639274

When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

Archer’s Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.

3) Lumière by Jacqueline E. Garlick

19448543

One determined girl. One resourceful boy. One miracle machine that could destroy everything.

After an unexplained flash shatters her world, seventeen-year-old Eyelet Elsworth sets out to find the Illuminator, her father’s prized invention. With it, she hopes to cure herself of her debilitating seizures before Professor Smrt—her father’s arch nemesis—discovers her secret and locks her away in an asylum.

Pursued by Smrt, Eyelet locates the Illuminator only to see it whisked away. She follows the thief into the world of the unknown, compelled not only by her quest but by the allure of the stranger—Urlick Babbit—who harbors secrets of his own.

Together, they endure deadly Vapours and criminal-infested woods in pursuit of the same prize, only to discover the miracle machine they hoped would solve their problems may in fact be their biggest problem of all.

 

Review: Virgin

18624367

 

Title: Virgin
Author: Radhika Sanghani
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: August 5, 2014
GoodReads

Synopsis:

Okay, I admit it…I didn’t do it.

Yet.

This is normal, right?  I mean, just because everyone I know has talked like they’ve already done it doesn’t mean that they’re telling the truth…right?

It’s not like I’m asking for that much. I don’t need the perfect guy. I don’t need candlelight or roses. Honestly, I don’t even need a real bed.

The guys I know complain that girls are always looking for Mr. Right—do I have to wear a sign that says I’m only looking for Mr. Right Now?

Sooooo…anyone out there want sex? Anyone? Hello? Just for fun?

I am not going to die a virgin. One way or another I am going to make this happen.

Hey, what have I got to lose? Besides the obvious.

I can honestly say, I didn’t love this book. I never understood why some girls are obsessed with losing their virginity. Why did I read this then? I was told it would be entertaining and humourous. It wasn’t, really.

Let’s pause that for a moment and start with the main character. She does have a sharp tongue and I was relatively entertained, at the beginning, by her and her awkward escapades. The got old really fast. She screamed desperation and self-pity about a quarter way through the book, and that didn’t really stop until the last 10 pages. She was so determined to lose something, which really makes no difference when it comes to the real world, that she was willing to sacrifice her friends, her marks, and her own health for it. As a twenty year old virgin, I really didn’t see where this was even coming from. Yes, she wants to fit in with a certain circle of people, but it never occurs to her that there was nothing wrong with her, but maybe something wrong with the people she surrounded herself with. That being said, there is nothing wrong with hanging out with people who have sex, who are happy to show off their experience, but when it makes you feel bad about yourself, or lesser, then I think you need to start reevaluating the kind of friends you want, versus the ones you need.

She goes on and on about how everyone she knows has done the deed. Yay? I mean really, about 90% of my friends are still virgins, half of us have never even had our first kiss yet. Honestly? The fact that I didn’t love this book may also stem from the fact that I can’t really relate. People are going on and on about how yes girls talk about their sex lives, their waxing/shaving incidents, their blowjob nightmares. I don’t think I’ve ever done that with my friends because our lives just don’t revolve around that kind of thing. Was I entertained by her horror stories? No, I actually wasn’t. If anything, it makes me more fearful for when I encounter those situations. That so doesn’t help.

Something that I also didn’t understand was how she could be so naiive about things. Yes, I understand that she’s inexperienced, but she’s been at this since high school. You mean to tell me that she’s never encountered a book that talked about these kinds of things, or saw magazine articles that describe what the chicka is doing when she’s going down on someone? I can go to my local grocery store and point out at least 5 to 10 magazines that will tell you “How to Pleasure Your Man”. I mean she’s an English major for crying out loud, she should be able to find literature about this in so many places. I can understand knowing everything in theory and still screwing up, but I just can’t believe that someone so determined and interested in all this hasn’t utilized these resources that the pop-culture world has given us.

It also bothers me that the whole ending was cut off abruptly. This happens, that happens, there’s some vague acceptance and then she goes back on it by STILL worrying about people thinking she’s a virgin, and it’s just like you are not the centre of the freaking world. Honestly, no one cares. She treats her friends like trash, and SHE KNOWS SHE’S BEING JEALOUS AND ANNOYING. Trust me, I know how hard it is to cut that off, but really, maybe if you stopped being so self-deprecating and realize that if a guy wants your friends attention more than yours, you should probably move on to find someone who actually LIKES YOU, then you’d be a little happier with life.

The world will knock you down whether you want it to or not. Don’t just sit there and pity yourself in a corner crying about it ’cause no one can help you except you. Love yourself before you try to get other people to love you. If you are not happy in your skin then change it, get up and actively change your lifestyle to something that suits you, ’cause getting a guy honestly will not help you fully feel comfortable in your skin (if anything it can make you even more self-conscious and it sucks).

I thought that some of the little anecdotes were odd, quirky, and relatively entertaining, but at the end of the day, I just couldn’t relate to this book, and that has greatly affected my views of this novel. Overall, well written, relatively interesting, but also frustrating, as there was a vague revelation and a half-assed attempt at saying that this kind of behaviour can get you into some big problems. All in all, I was not impressed.

2014-debut-authors-bash-banner

Welcome to one of today’s stops for the 2014 Debut Authors Bash, hosted by YAReads!

I am EXTREMELY excited to introduce all of you to Alison Kemper! Alison Kemper debuted in March and she is here today to talk to us about her young adult novel Donna of the Dead and her favourite zombie movies!

25c960_1c7802487dd74323b6ad67ae4b9c9262.jpg_srz_p_242_385_75_22_0.50_1.20_0.00_

Title: Donna of the Dead
Author: Alison Kemper
Publication Date: March 4, 2014
Genre: Young Adult Dystopian Romance
GoodReads

Synopsis:

Donna Pierce might hear voices, but that doesn’t mean she’s crazy. Probably.

The voices do serve their purpose, though—whenever Donna hears them, she knows she’s in danger. So when they start yelling at the top of their proverbial lungs, it’s no surprise she and her best friend, Deke, end up narrowly escaping a zombie horde. Alone without their families, they take refuge at their high school with the super-helpful nerds, the bossy head cheerleader, and—best of all?—Liam, hottie extraordinaire and Donna’s long-time crush. When Liam is around, it’s easy to forget about the moaning zombies, her dad’s plight to reach them, and how weird Deke is suddenly acting toward her.

But as the teens’ numbers dwindle and their escape plans fall apart, Donna has to listen to the secrets those voices in her head have been hiding. It seems not all the zombies are shuffling idiots, and the half-undead aren’t really down with kids like Donna…

Zombies. I read about them, I write about them, and I’ll watch any movie that includes them. Here are my ten favorites, but I want to hear about yours! Leave a comment with the name of your favorite zombie film.

1. 28 Days Later

You’ll find a ton of online debates about how this isn’t a zombie movie because it’s about the Rage virus. In my opinion, zombies, but with a believable premise about how they got so fast. Best scene: in the tunnel, when teen girl Hannah (Megan Burns) has to change a flat tire while the zombies close in. All the adults are freaking out, but Hannah just concentrates on changing that tire. You go, Hannah.

2. Shaun of the Deadasd

I’ve always felt that if my friends and I were stuck in a zombie apocalypse, this is how we’d behave. We’d be ill-prepared, and do something stupid like try to hole up in a bar.

3. Zombieland

Jesse Eisenberg makes this movie. I tend to imagine an apocalypse survivor as a badass action hero, but in reality, it might be the neurotic kid who uses a lot of hand sanitizer and always wears his seatbelt. Best scene: Bill Murray pretending to be a zombie.

4. World War Z

There’s a lot of hate for this movie. People complain that it doesn’t have enough gore, doesn’t follow the book, ends too abruptly. All of this is true, but it still ranks up there as one of my favorites. Why? Intensity. There’s a few slow minutes at the start of the film, and then bam, non-stop action until the final moments. Best scene: the mountain of zombies scaling the wall in Israel.

dsa5. Warm Bodies

Zombies, romance, humor, Nicholas Hoult. *fans self*

6. I am Legend

You can go online and find lengthy debates about whether these are zombies or vampires. I won’t get into that here. Great pace, awesome acting, super scary monsters. The novella is totally different, but definitely worth a read.

7. Night of the Living Dead (original)s

The 1968 black and white Romero classic. Watch it late at night with the lights off.

8. Dawn of the Dead (2004 version)

There’s not a dull moment in this one. Even the end credits. Especially the end credits.

sd9. Night of the Comet

A fun, cheesy 80s movie about teens who survive the Zompocalypse by holing up in a mall. There’s a ton of campy humor and sweet romance.  This is certainly not one of the best zombie movies ever made, but it makes my top 10 for changing the way I thought about zombies—for making me realize they could be scary and hilarious at the same time. Best scene: Montage of teen girls’ shopping spree which is, of course, interrupted by zombies.

10. Cemetery Man (Dellamorte, Dellamore)

A strange Italian film in which Dellamorte (Rupert Evert) is the caretaker in a graveyard where the dead return after seven days. The second half of this film drifts into confusion, but the first half is so brilliant it has to go on my list. Best scene: Dellamorte falls for the beautiful young widow who hangs around the cemetery. They, er, consummate their relationship on her husband’s grave—who chooses that moment to return.

Now it’s your turn! What’s your favorite zombie movie?

Alison Kemper writes fun, nerdy romances set during the zombie apocalypse. Her first novel, DONNA OF THE DEAD (Entangled Teen), spent several weeks on the Kindle YA Humor bestseller list. DWIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD releases this September, followed by a third romantic comedy next year. Find her online at alisonkemper.com.

Day 29: A Book You Couldn’t Put Down

Every book! Can’t say that? Shame. UH… Most recently would be Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover.

17788401

When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

Day 28: Most Thought-Provoking Book

I know this is kind of cheating again (bad Alicia !), but I’m actually going to go with a textbook on this one. This was a text that was used in my second year Criticism II class and I found it really interesting. While it was the size of a bible, and a bore at times (reading is only fun if you don’t have to do it for marks), I actually found a lot of ideas hit home with me (once I figured it out). “Like, duh, it’s a book about a billion and one philosophers talking about the world and people on it.” That is true, but I know that if I gave this to my roommate, it wouldn’t mean anything to her, so I know that this isn’t just anyone’s cup of tea. If I ever have a year off to do nothing, I’d go through this book and actually study it, because it’s really interesting when you get down to the bare bones (though it takes A LOT of digging).

Day 27: A Book That Makes You Laugh Out Loud

Excerpt:

Lily felt awful.

While everyone else seemed to be rejuvenated by the mountains and the air, she was fighting to keep down that filet o’ fish sandwich she’d picked up at a McDonald’s on the way.

She barely managed to keep her composure as she lugged her duffle bag up to their room. Standing in the entrance to room 409 with Rick and Maria, she saw the two queen beds, the window, and the balcony that overlooked the forest. There was something oddly familiar about the place, like she’d been here before, although she knew that she hadn’t.

She had been the one who picked out this hotel. Why had she chosen this hotel? Sure, it looked nice online, and everyone else agreed that it was perfect. Now that they were here, she felt an ominous shadow over her. There was no other way to describe it.

Liiii-iiillly, the voice called out to her, stronger now.

She gagged. She needed to be alone.

She dropped the duffle on the bed closest to the bathroom. “Excuse me,” she muttered, pushing past Maria. Rick called after her, but she ignored him. She flicked on the light in the bathroom and slammed the door. It echoed against the tile floor, filling the space inside her ears. She was already hiccupping vomit when she rushed to the toilet, some of it landing on the floor before she got there. She didn’t care. She fell onto the porcelain bowl, puking up everything that was in her stomach. She hugged the basin and convulsed several times, retching up whatever was left. Tears streamed down her cheeks.

Lily was frightened. She’d had some bad hangovers before, but this felt different. She hadn’t been that hung over that morning.

She wiped remnants from the corner of her lip, then covered her mouth, sobbing into her hand, trying to muffle it so that Rick and Maria couldn’t hear her. For some reason, whether it was the voice in her mind or something else, she didn’t want them to see her like this. She shuddered, trying to hold herself together.

What was happening to her?

Liiii-iiillly. We’re here, Lily.

“I’m ignoring you,” she whispered.

Shaking, she crawled in to the shower and turned it on, clothes and all. The cold water hit her like an ice storm pummeling her body. She welcomed it, glad that shivering took over from the writhing in her stomach. She wrapped her arms around her knees and sat in the corner, rocking herself back and forth.

You’re about to meet your destiny, Lily, the voice told her. You want Seth, don’t you?

She bit the back of her hand, trying to keep from screaming. She really was going crazy. Maybe she should have seen a psychiatrist long ago. Even now, she was seeing things, like little filaments of light falling around her. The walls of the shower seemed to pulsate around her, like it was a living thing that had its own heartbeat.

Over the rush of the water and the turmoil in her mind, she heard a knock at the door.

“Hey, Lily?” It was Rick. “Darius is ordering pizza. What do you want?”

She chewed the inside of her cheek, willing herself to sound normal when she answered. “Anything!” she yelled back.

Luckily, Rick didn’t press. There weren’t any more knocks, leaving Lily alone. Or as alone she could be with another voice in her head.

Let me take over, Lily. It will all be over soon and you’ll have Seth. You two are meant to be together.

She screamed into her hand as the tears fell down her face.
