YallFest is fast approaching! November 9th is the big day, and one author you won’t want to miss is Lisa McMann, author of the Visions, Wake, and Unwanteds series. Her latest books are Bang, book two of the Visions series, and Island of Fire, book three of the Unwanteds series.
Here is an interview the YALLFest team did with Lisa!
What one thing do you need to have when you write?
Best writing tip you ever received?
“Think of the one thing your main character would never, ever do. Now make her do it.”
What are you working on now?
We’ll be ramping up the releases of books 5, 6, and 7 in the Unwanteds series, so I’m working on Unwanteds book 5 right now.
What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
I really enjoy writing in a variety of genres, from realistic to paranormal to dystopian fantasy. At the moment, fantasy is winning, but that could change at any moment. My favorite genre to read is memoir.
At what point in the development of an idea do you know that it will become a full-length novel?
As soon as I have a one line concept that gives me a little shiver.
