Kelly Martin Dreams Big in The Afterlife of Lizzie Monroe

Vampire movies and television shows give me nightmares. But for Amazon Bestselling Author, Kelly Martin, a post-Vampire Diaries dream led to Amazon gold. Welcome, Kelly! Tell us about The Afterlife of Lizzie Monroe. I LOVED your meme for the book! Tell us about the blog tour.




I'm nearing the end of my LIZZIE MONROE blog tour. It's so sad, but I've had a great time!! I'm so excited to be here talking about my new book, THE AFTERLIFE OF LIZZIE MONROE, and to answer three reader questions. I recently asked on facebook for any questions my readers had for me. I've been answering some of them on my tour. I have to have it to my readers. They asked really great questions! *hold my hand-- oh the nerves**

Three Questions with Kelly Martin
1.     Computer or Pen and paper?
Computer. I used to write with pen and paper. Now, I use the computer. I outline in a notebook though. Do character sketches and stuff… invented time travel ;) But when I write, it’s on a computer. Usually a laptop.
2.     Think of the one book that you’ve always wanted to write but never have, what would it be?
There is a time travel book I really want to write, but I’m not sure I can pull it off. I got far enough to invent time travel and wrote a couple chapters, but I put it down. Also, there is a book I’ve written about 10,000 words in about a virus in a small town. I really like the idea for it, but I think it needs a lot of work. Maybe I’ll get on that one again soon. I really liked the main character, Ivy.

3.     What one author would you ever consider doing a co-write with?
Leah Sanders (Waltzing with the Wallflowers) and I have toyed with co-writing a new book. We are still in the ‘what do you think’ stage. I think it would be fun.


Do you have any questions for me? If so, you can chat on my facebook author page or twitter. I'd love to answer it.


Do you watch FOX's show Sleepy Hollow? How about The Vampire Diaries (actually, the idea for LIZZIE came from a dream I had after watching TVD... you'll probably figure out which part when you read it ;) ) Basically, that's LIZZIE. It's FOX's Sleepy Hollow meets The Vampire Diaries with a little faith thrown in for good measure (of course... there is a lot of faith in Sleepy Hollow too lol). SO if you like Sleepy Hollow-- you'll like LIZZIE :)

Thanks for having me here :)

Blurb:
If Shane Davis had it to do over again, he wouldn't have gone out that night. He wouldn't have burned down the church. And he sure wouldn't have taken the annoying dead girl home with him.

Now that Shane has her, he has no idea what to do with her. He can't release her into the "wild" because people will recognize her (being a hundred and fifty year old town 'legend' will do that). He can't send her away because she can't take care of herself yet. And she can't stay because if people find her, they'll know he burned the church. Being eighteen now, Shane definitely doesn't want that fact coming out.

Unbeknownst to Shane, someone has figured out the girl's secret and will do anything to get it for himself... even kill the girl who isn't so immortal after all.
