Blog Hop! My Writing Process

It's time for a Blog Hop! I LOVE these things!

I was tagged by PA Warren who just published her first book LIFE AFTER.
It's pretty straight forward--just answer the questions and tag two other authors. :) Fun stuff! 

What am I working on?
Currently I'm working on the final installment of the Lark trilogy, Like the Dawn. I'm almost finished writing my first draft--like 5,000 words away!

How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Hmmmm.....well, I hope that my work is different because I'M different. :) I write YA Fantasy with a hint of comedy and romance. I also have two college-age romance books out right now (one I co-wrote with the amazing Komal Kant) and even though it's super popular right now, I can't make myself write a graphic sex scene--I blush and get all awkward about it so my NA books are clean with just a hint of steaminess.

Why do I write what I do?
Because I think I might secretly be a teenager in an *almost* 30-year-old body. I mean, my favorite shows are Teen Wolf, Awkward and Pretty Little Liars. Though I do like SOME grown up shows--I swear! I'm in love with Downton Abbey and The Walking Dead.

How does your writing process work?
I outline first. I'm the kind of person who NEEDS to look at an outline because I don't always write the story in order. So an outline is sorta necessary so I at least know what I'm supposed to be writing and how it relates to the other chapters. After I finish writing, I send it off to Heather Sloan for first round revisions and edits and then I send it to my beta readers and finally Maya Bentley for final edits. Then  I usually get too impatient to wait for the official release date and hit publish early!

Next Week on the Tour:
Michelle Flick, author of The Owens Legacy and Walker 
AND
Heather Diemer, author of the upcoming novel We Were Us
