The Afterlife of Lizzie Monroe by Kelly Martin

We welcome Kelly Martin to the Blog today to talk about her new book, Lizzie Monroe. Welcome, Kelly!

I'm so excited to be here talking about my new book and to answer three reader questions. I recently asked on Facebook for any questions my readers had for me. I've been answering some of them on my tour. I have to have it to my readers. They asked really great questions!  Here we go!!
Three Questions with Kelly Martin
1.       How do you prioritize your WIPs (Works in Progress)?
I’m basically a one manuscript at a time writer. I do occasionally break away and write something new, but I normally only have one thing going on at a time. That said, I do have several I haven’t finished that I need to work on lol. If I stop, I have a hard time getting back to writing it.

2.       What is the scariest thing about writing?
Writing is the easy part. Publishing it is the hard part. You can love a book, but you never know how readers are going to feel. Great reviews are awesome! Bad reviews make you question why you ever decided to write in the first place for a few stinging minutes. THEN you go back and read the review and figure out what you might have done differently. You learn from it, but yeah. That’s a scary part of writing.

3.       “I’ve heard authors say that they work on more than one book at a time, if they get stuck on one book they will work on the other one for a while. Are you able to do this or do you stick with one book until it’s done?”
Like I said before, if I stop writing a book, it’s hard for me to get back into it. So I try really hard to just say on one book. That said, I do get side tracked. I do start books sometimes before the one I’m working on is finished. It’s hard for me, though. I’d rather write straight from Chapter One to ‘the end’.

Do you have any questions for me? If so, you can chat on my facebook author page or twitter. I'd love to answer it.

I describe LIZZIE as a Civil War/Contemporary/Historical/Inspirational/Zombie/Romantic/ Epic... there ya go ;) I also say if you like Sleepy Hollow, you'll like LIZZIE. Just enough romance to keep you hooked. Just enough scares to make you cover your eyes (briefly ;) ). Just enough faith to make you believe in the world. Just enough heart  to suck you in. It really is one of my favorite books.

Thanks for having me here :)

If Shane Davis had it to do over again, he wouldn't have gone out that night. He wouldn't have burned down the church. And he sure wouldn't have taken the annoying dead girl home with him.

Now that Shane has her, he has no idea what to do with her. He can't release her into the "wild" because people will recognize her (being a hundred and fifty year old town 'legend' will do that). He can't send her away because she can't take care of herself yet. And she can't stay because if people find her, they'll know he burned the church. Being eighteen now, Shane definitely doesn't want that fact coming out.

Unbeknownst to Shane, someone has figured out the girl's secret and will do anything to get it for himself... even kill the girl who isn't so immortal after all.
