Pardon me while I go fangirl for a moment. You'd think I'd get used to talking to my favorite authors after so many years, but of course, that never happens. That is especially true today as I'm taking to Rachel Lynn Solomon, brilliant author and nicest human. Rachel has been one of my favorite authors almost as long as I've been a blogger. Her first book came out about 7 months after I first started my blog, and almost four years later, I finally get to chat with her. I can't believe this didn't happen sooner, but I think I was always intimidated.
There's a lot to cover in this quick chat, so Rachel and I talk about keeping up with writing on a quick release schedule, wading into the romance world with The Ex Talk, working in public radio, plotting Today, Tonight Tomorrow, and what's next (luckily, there's quite a bit coming soon). I hope you enjoy our conversation.
1. You’ve been releasing books steadily since your debut in 2018, and this year you have both a YA and an adult book out. What’s it like balancing writing time with so many releases? Has your writing process changed since your pre-publication days because of this?
4. Your bio mentions your time working in public radio. Did the idea for The Ex Talk start there?
5. I know you have a new YA book project coming up in June. Can you tell me about We Can’t Keep Meeting Like This and any other upcoming projects?
