Roundtable - 'Uplit' authors Laura Jane Williams, Nicola Gill, Hannah Sunderland and Charlene Allcott talk about writing to answer questions, finding your reader, and playing with genre.
Welcome to the second Writer's Routine Roundtable! We're back with 4 of the best uplit/ rom-com authors around to talk us through how they do it.
Laura Jane Williams - She took us through her writer's routine last year, ahead of 'Our Stop'. She talks about how writing that book made her a believer, as her second 'The Love Square' has just been published - https://amzn.to/39bd4M6
Nicola Gill - Joined us earlier in 2020, to talk us through a day writing her debut, 'The Neighbours'. She's been busy and has a second book, 'We Are Family' - https://amzn.to/30xcgNX
Hannah Sunderland - New to the show, her debut 'Very Nearly Normal' is out now - https://amzn.to/2ZMBEQB
Charlene Allcott - from 'The Moderate Mum' blog, she's just published her new novel, 'More Than a Mum' - https://amzn.to/2ZMBEQB
We talk about the conventions of the genre, how they create brooding heroes, how they flip the stereotype, and how to create a happy ending. You can hear how much they think about their reader, and why they're writing to answer their own questions, and how much lockdown has affected their writing day.
