Today I have the privilege of having Danika Stone on my blog for her upcoming book Internet Famous. Can we talk about that cover though?
Synopsis (GR): Internt Famous by Danika Stone
High school senior and internet sensation Madison Nakama seems to have it all: a happy family, good grades, and a massive online following for her pop-culture blog. But when her mother suddenly abandons the family, Madi finds herself struggling to keep up with all of her commitments.
Fandom to the rescue! As her online fans band together to help, an online/offline flirtation sparks with Laurent, a French exchange student. Their internet romance—played out in the comments section of her MadLibs blog—attracts the attention of an internet troll who threatens the separation of Madi’s real and online personas. With her carefully constructed life unraveling, Madi must uncover the hacker’s identity before he can do any more damage, or risk losing the people she loves the most… Laurent included.

Do books get easier for you the more you write?
For me, the answer to this is both ‘yes’ and ‘no’. Writing is like any other activity: the more you do it, the more confident you become. In the same way that an Olympic skier can make flying downhill at 50 mph look like child’s play, a seasoned writer can seemingly pump out a book year after year without trouble. Assuming it’s easy, however, is only half the truth.
All books are different. With some, the characters are fully formed, but the plot needs endless writing. For others, its the plot that works straight off, and the characters that need rejigging. And every once in a while, there’s a story that – while amazing in the author’s brain – just doesn’t translate well to the written page. All of these factors are separate from the skill which an author carries with her. So though the actual process of writing may get easier, the process for each book doesn’t.
Like anything else, the only way to deal with all these different issues is just to keep moving forward. No matter how long you’ve been writing, it’s you and the words. Get them on the page. Everything else can be managed later.
