0 Amanda K. Morgan, author of SUCH A GOOD GIRL, on doing what works for you

We had such a good time sitting down with Amanda K. Morgan to chat about her latest novel, SUCH A GOOD GIRL.

Amanda, what book or books would most resonate with readers who love your book--or visa versa? 

Simon Pulse compares the book to PRETTY LITTLE LIARS and LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE, and I have to say they're both good comparisons. I'd also throw in GONE GIRL.

What do you hope readers will take away from SUCH A GOOD GIRL?

I write for enjoyment, so I hope people read my work and get the same feeling.

What advice would you most like to pass along to other writers? 

There's a million pieces of writing advice out there, but at the end of the day, you have to do what works for you. Write every day if that helps; write when the mood strikes you if that's your thing. Write twenty pages at once or one. There's not one proper way to write a book.

What are you working on now? 

 I'm working on something very near and dear to my heart that isn't sold yet but hopefully will be!


Such a Good Girl
by Amanda K. Morgan
Simon Pulse
Released 6/20/2017

Pretty Little Liars meets Luckiest Girl Alive in this riveting novel about a practically perfect girl who is willing to do anything to make sure it stays that way. Absolutely anything.

Things to know about Riley Stone:

- Riley Stone is just about perfect. (Ask anyone.)
- She has a crush on her French teacher, Alex Belrose. (And she suspects he likes her, too.)
- Riley has her entire life planned out. (The plan is nonnegotiable.)
- She’s never had a secret she couldn’t keep. (Not ever.)
- Riley is sure that her life is on the right track. (And nothing will change that.)
- She’s nothing like a regular teenager. (But she doesn’t have any problem admitting that.)
- Riley doesn’t usually play games. (But when she does, she always wins.)

She thinks a game is about to start…
But Riley always has a plan…
And she always wins.
