Today I have Beth Overmyer on my blog talking about her book In A Pickle.
1. Tell us about your book and how the story came to be.
Oh, yes. I have suffered MAJORLY from writer’s block. Some people don’t believe in writer’s block, but I think they just have another word for it. Laziness, dry well, busyness, and so forth. What I do to get out of the dreaded block is to read and watch movies. I had been in a block for a year, and what broke that was the trailer for a movie. It was hard sitting through the feature presentation, because all sorts of characters and ideas were coming to me.
So, reading and movie-watching. And I’m one of those people who can’t force writing. Some people can make themselves sit down and push out words. Not me. I clam up and freak out and the block becomes worse.
Sounds interesting, Beth, you have piqued my interest.
9. What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve received?
And they can purchase In a Pickle from the MuseItUp Publishing bookstore, Amazon.com, and (soon) Barnes and Noble’s site.
Bio: Beth Overmyer, a native Ohioan, writes anything from middle grade adventure to adult steampunk. She aspires to reach the world with her words, and would like to someday be a fry-cook on Venus.
Blurb: Charlie Pickle can't stay put in the year 1920, due to an annoying habit of time-traveling. On a trip back to 1910, he meets a man with a secret. Murder makes the headlines that day, and Charlie's new friend knows who the guilty party is. Now, not only does Charlie have bullies and murderers to contend with, he's got some history to fix.
Thanks, Beth, for being on my blog.
