062: From Concept to Bookshelf – Interview with Kim Liggett

Hey Word Nerds! Today’s episode is going to be so awesome because I’m talking to debut author Kim Liggett, a fabulous YA author and good friend. Her book, Blood and Salt, is out now, and in this episode she and I chat about taking this project from concept to bookshelf.


In this episode Kim and I discuss:

  • World-building, sensory detail, and creative descriptions.
  • Having an obsession and using it to fuel your writing.
  • Organizing the plot to build suspense, with shifting timelines and surprise reveals.
  • Navigating the revision and edit process to get the best result.
  • Creative promotion for books.

Plus her #1 tip for writers.
