Please give a warm welcome to author Savannah Skye
Tell us a bit about yourself
Let’s see, I’m a full time self-published author by day and by night I’m mostly on the hunt for a great craft beer and some delicious tapas. I’m single (don’t jump all at once, boys!) and I like it that way most of the time because I get the whole bed to myself.
Guilty Pleasures: If there is a Real Housewife, I’m all about it! I know it’s bad, but it’s also so so good and it gives my brain a much needed break. I’m also obsessed with Nutella. I’d bathe in it if I could.
Favorite book: Hunger Games, the series. Love those books!
Favorite musical artist: Florence and the Machine.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
No! My dream job was to be Willy Wonka (I’m still gunning for that one some day. A girl’s gotta dream!) But in my teens, I started writing and it was sort of something I couldn’t NOT do. I kept at it, and soon enough I realized that I needed to start letting other people see my work.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
I knew I wanted to do vampires, and I knew I wanted them to live underground. Once the undercity came to mind, it all sort of unfolded from there.
What are you working on now?
The next set of books in the Undercity Chronicles! I love this world so much and can’t wait for readers to meet all the amazing characters I have in store for them. I’m especially excited for Jack’s story. I’ve been itching to get to that one since I first introduced him to the series.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
Hmm, that’s a good question. Not a quirk so much, but I try to ensure that the music I have going in my headphones creates the same emotion I’m trying to convey in the scene. So if I’m imagining a huge vampire battle scene, I’m listening to something intense and loud and chaotic. If I’m coming up to a big, emotional break up or death scene, I’m probably listening to Evanessence or something lol!
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope that the Undercity Chronicles becomes as big as Twilight 🙂 But seriously, I really just hope readers love the books and connect with the world and characters so I can do this job forever.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Read. Read read read lol! Whenever I’m struggling and the words just won’t come, I try to put it aside and clear my mind. A lot of times, just taking that break to dive into another world for awhile get’s me back into creative mode.
Do you have anything to say to your readers?
Thanks so much for choosing my books! I know there are SO many out there, and I’m honored every time you guys pick mine.
