Interview + Giveaway with Heather Davis

Hey girls!
You may, or may not know yet, but Never Cry Werewolf as released on september 1st. It is Heather Davis’ first novel and she took to the time to spot at my blog to talk about it and her experience as a writer! I’m really please dto intruce her on my blog today =)
Would you please tell us a bit about yourself?
That’s a big question. What do we know about ourselves, anyway? lol. I’m a native of the Pacific Northwest and I’ve done everything from cooking in Alaskan lodges to substitute teaching elementary. I have a day job in sales/marketing, but I live to write!

There are quite a bunch of novels about werewolves and shifters, how does your book stands out?

My book had a much earlier release date but was pushed back to this September date, which actually works great with Halloween just around the corner. Back when I wrote the book, only Blood and Chocolate (from the 1990’s) was out in the YA werewolf world. That said, no one else has written a funny, sweet werewolf book – so that makes mine standout right up front. It’s a fun, quick read and is not trying to do anything but entertain. People looking for sad, deep reading should read something else.

Would you please introduce your mains characters to us?

Shelby is an appealingly average girl, transplanted from Milwaukee to Beverly Hills, where she lives with her distracted dad and evil stepmother. Austin is British and the son of a rockstar.


Is Never Cry Werewolf a stand alone or series debut?
I hope it will be a series! I’m not done with the characters yet.

What is the most difficult part in the entire publishing progress?
Waiting for your book to come out. Oh, and writing the book. Writing is hard work. It’s a lot of long hours in the chair when you’d rather be out with your friends.
And the most exciting part?

Sending my dad his very own copy and hearing him say he’s proud of me.


Would you have any advice for young adults dreaming of being published?

Don’t be afraid to be terrible — just write without censoring yourself or criticizing yourself too much. You can always go back and revise and edit! Also, make a plan for when you will write. You will be more productive that way.

What book are you reading right now?

Creativity for Life by Eric Maisel – it’s about the artist’s personality traits and how to make the most of your creative brain.
Is there anything else you would like to add?

  1. I love that Heather wanted to write a light werewolf story, because I have found that too many werewolf/shapeshifter stories to be very gritty and serious. It's a nice change, for me at least. +1 following on twitter (I'm @hlyshtbtmn)+5 blogged about the interview/giveaway on my blog: Link to GiveawaySara Msilentalibis AT yahoo DOT com
