April, what's your writing ritual like? Do you listen to music? Work at home or at a coffee shop or the library, etc? What gets you into the mood to write?
What advice would you most like to pass along to other writers?
Be tenacious. I have seen better writers than me give up because they got a few rejections. I never gave up, even despite getting over a hundred rejections before I found an agent, and many more before I got my first contract. The Lonely Dead is my 23rd book.
What are you working on now?
ABOUT THE BOOKThe Lonely Dead
by April Henry
Henry Holt and Co.
For Adele, the dead aren’t really dead. She can see them and even talk to them. But she’s spent years denying her gift. When she encounters her ex best friend Tori in a shallow grave in the woods and realizes that Tori is actually dead -- that gift turns into a curse. Without an alibi, Adele becomes the prime suspect in Tori’s murder. She must work with Tori’s ghost to find the real killer. But what if the killer finds Adele first?
