Good Afternoon Readers 🙂 I’m here today as a part of the TCWT July Blog Chain. I can honestly say this is one of the best characterization exercises I’ve ever done, all my characters are going to a therapy session now (yes, even…especially you Aziza). The prompt is below, enjoy the scene! Oh an btw,… Read more »
We teens seem to be taking over the world…what’s new 😉 Whimsically Yours, PnC
He’s a fellow 19 year old writer who’s the author of the MG novel THE PECULIAR :)
Hello! My name is Stefan Bachmann, I’m 19, I was born in the US, live in Switzerland, and wrote THE PECULIAR, which came out on September 18th from Greenwillow/HarperCollins and several other publishers around the world.
It’s a gothic/steampunk/faery fantasy set in an alternate 19th century where faeries and English have been forced to form a fragile society. This society is suddenly threatened when changelings begin appearing in the river, dead and covered in sinister red markings. A young changeling named Bartholomew Kettle, and a spoiled aristocrat, set off on an adventure to right wrongs, save their lives and those of their families, and perhaps rescue their entire city . . .
Meet Stephanie who, at the time of this interview, was a fellow 19 year old writer and is a college student. She’s now 20!!! Happy belated birthday. But for the purpose of Teens Can Write TOO! Week she’s a writer who has some great words of wisdom for us all 🙂
I’m Stephanie, a 19-year-old writer (I’ll be 20 on October 7!) born and raised in Southern California. The book that got me my agent and will be on sub pretty soon is a YA sci-fi called Extraction. It’s about a girl named Clementine who wins an escape from a settlement on a planet where the moon is poisonous and children are killed off when they turn twenty. Only, she has to leave a boy who’s very special to her behind.
Today, as a part of Teens Can Write TOO! Week, I would like to introduce you to Amy Zhang, she’s an agented writer & a lit agent intern who’s 16! She also has a great sense of humor 🙂
Hi! I’m Amy, sixteen, represented by Emily Keyes of the L. Perkins Agency. My YA fantasy on subs, WILDFLOWER, is about a girl who isn’t sure why she’s still alive, a boy who believes that love is a weakness, and the pointless annual Wars that bring them together. There’s some blood and some dying and some kissing and some backstabbing. I’m also revising a very different kind of fantasy, tentatively titled BENEATH DISQUIET STARS, about a girl who lost her name and was given a promise: that very soon she would lose her life as well, or her first love would lose his.
As a part of BOOKTOBERFEST!‘s Teens Can Write TOO! week, I present to you my interview with Oliver Dahl…this is a repost of an interview I had with him on 08/20/2012 🙂
Interested in self-publishing, have dreams of being the next Christopher Paolini, don’t think kids can write?
Well, whether you answered yes or no…
Meet Oliver Dahl:
Hi, My name is Oliver Dahl. I am fourteen years old, and I published my first book, The Dreamers, a little over a year ago, at thirteen. That October, I was named one of Idaho’s Top 50 Authors. I was later named Idaho’s “Student of the Year”. My second book will come out this fall.
For the first interview in my Teens Can Write Too! post series:
(this is his favorite picture…yikes!)
Hi! Can you introduce yourself (include age and place of birth) & the book you’re querying?
Sure! I’m John, a lit agent intern, a YA writer, an obsessive blogger and tweeter, and a teen writer activist. I run the blog Teens Can Write, Too!, a teen writer support site, and I’m a high school student living in the U.S. I’m currently querying INEVITABLE, a YA thriller pitched as THE BOURNE IDENTITY meets THE FUTURE OF US. My pitch is: “For sixteen-year-old Alex Tanner, finding a webpage about himself five years into the future is totally awesome and all until he logs on one morning and his status reads: DECEASED.”
