A Behind the Scenes Look at the Making of A WEEK OF MONDAYS

A week of Mondays - 3d with spine - featured image sizeA WEEK OF MONDAYS, my new young adult novel is out in the world! Hoorah!

The book is about sixteen-year-old Ellie Sparks who finds herself reliving the same horrible Monday over and over again, in which her boyfriend breaks up with her. And although yes, that does sound horrific, it’s actually a comedy!

After every book release, I always get a ton of questions about the writing process of the book, so I decided to put together a little “Making of” post, with links to lots of behind-the-scenes looks at the making of this book.

    1. Behind the Book – My live blog experiment when writing the first draft
      When I wrote this book back in 2014, I decided to try something a little different. Every week, I live blogged (with charts!) my experience of writing the first draft. It was a lot of fun and an interesting view point to actually see my ups and downs throughout the drafting process. You can find all the “Behind the Book” posts by clicking here.
    2. An Introduction to Ellie Sparks (the main character of A WEEK OF MONDAYS)
      Find out how Ellie came to life in my mind and on the page.
    3. Podcast interview about the writing of A WEEK OF MONDAYS
      Click here to hear my “Author Talk” episode of the Swoony Boys podcast in which I talk about the process of writing A Week of Mondays and the reasons I actually LOVE Mondays!
    4. Interview about the origin of the idea, deleted scenes, my favorite Monday and more!
