interview with Elana Johnson

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Today, I'm doing a Girlfriends' Cyber Circuit interview with Elana Johnson about her new book, Possession

Me: Tell us about your book in ten words or less!

Elana: Posession = brainwashing transmissions + angsty teenage girl + cute boys x chaos

Me: What's the best writing advice you've ever been given?

Elana: Keep writing. I believe there’s no such thing as a failed novel. It’s a practice novel, and everyone needs to practice to get good at something.

Me: What do you wish you'd known about being published/publishing before your book came out?

Elana: I wish someone had told me how emotionally exhausting this is. I may not have gotten involved!

Me: What's the last book you read that you loved so much you had to tell everyone about it?

Elana: One of my favorite books of 2011 is Clairty by Kim Harrington. Everyone should read it!

Me: Oh, you know what I'm going to ask now...

Elana: Ranch. Oh my gravy, I could drink it from a tall glass. No vegetables needed. (Me: LOL!)

Thanks for stopping by, Elana, and I have to send a quick shout-out to the 45 amazing girls I'm going to be meeting this weekend (they're all part of a book club, and they've all read Between Here and Forever--how cool is that?)

I've had this book on my 'to read' list for a while. Sounds like I need to move it up to the top.
