As we speak, Jennifer Bradbury, author of Shift, is busily working on the edits for Apart, her second book with Antheum Books for Young Readers. While she doesn't as yet have a cover, let's take another look at the cover of her first novel, Shift.
Isn't it purty? And if you haven't read it yet, you really should!
But back to her second book, because that's the whole point of this week's blog-- second books! Jennifer shares this tidbit about Apart.
Three sisters must redefine what it means to be family in the wake of their father's descent into schizophrenia.
Okay, that's more of a teaser than a tidbit! Let's talk to Jennifer.
2k8: How does it feel to have sold a second book?
Jennifer: Honestly, it's a bit of a relief to have that second one waiting. I'm excited to share the story with readers, but a little nervous about how it might be received after SHIFT. Mostly excited, though!
2k8: What was different about writing this one than writing Shift?
Jennifer: The biggest difference was writing with a particular editor in mind. I've grown very used to my editor's voice, and think her insights are amazing, but it took some work for me to what I thought she might say and write the book that needed to be written. Luckily, we were both happy with the story in the end.
