-Do you have any advice for an aspiring author?
Keep writing! Even when it’s too difficult and the words aren’t flowing correctly, you can always fix it later, or you think your book idea is dumb. Just keep writing!
-How long does it take for you to write a book?
It depends on how into my project I am. It can take me 2 to 8 months to finish my work in progress.
-What is a writing quirk of yours?
I sit in the strangest positions while I write…
-Are there specific steps you take when you write? Ex: Is it planned or spontaneous?
It depends on the project haha. I never have my entire book planned because I change my mind about sub plots a lot, but sometimes I have a lot of things planned or I can go in completely blind.
-What is your favorite genre to read?
I mostly read young adult books mixed with some action and romance to keep things spicy ;)
-Who is your main book boyfriend/girlfriend?
Jem Carstairs from The Infernal Devices. I wish he was real!!!
-What are 3 of your ultimate life necessities?
Pen, paper, and a dictionary to look up synonyms. Everything a writer needs to survive.
-What is your favorite place to read/write?
Ashley Earley is a 19-year-old author who lives in Georgia, where she’s working on her next book. When she’s not writing, she’s posting on her blog, reading, spending time with her friends, or obsessing over a book character. Her obsession with books started at the age of twelve, before developing a love for writing at the age of fourteen, when she wrote her first novel.
I am currently working on publishing a young adult contemporary romance novel that’s set in Paris, France. I hope to have it published next year if I can’t get it traditionally published!
I will be at BookCon this year! Now, I don’t have a booth or anything but I’m going to meet other authors, propose a new book, and just have some fun! I’m very excited!
