Refreshingly Riki is pleased to be a part of the official Blog Tour for Jade Eby’s novel THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG! I’m super excited to share with you today an exclusive interview with Jade Eby herself. Sit back, welcome Jade to the blog, and enjoy!
INTERVIEW WITH JADE EBY:Describe yourself in five words.-Bibliophile, Passionate, Driven, Nerdy, Coffee-aholic What is the best piece of advice have you ever received in your writing career?-Give yourself permission to write crappy first drafts. What was your favorite part of writing THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG?-This is hard! I had so much fun writing THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG, but I think my favorite part was getting to spend time with my characters. Kara and Vince are two very opinionated characters and every time I thought they were going to behave — they’d go and do something surprising. All of the writers who say their characters talk to them aren’t lying!! They really do talk to us and sometimes they don’t shut up!Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead
character(s) from THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG?-Oooh! I love this one. I actually have the perfect actors/actresses in my head for them and that’s because after I started writing THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG, I started watching the show Hart of Dixie and from the first time Zoe Hart and Wade Kinsella interacted, I knew that was Kara and Vince. So Rachel Bilson and Wilson Bethel are definitely my Kara and Vince. What is an unknown fact or fun trivia about THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG?-95% of the WWII facts with Kara’s grandfather are based on my grandfather who drove tanks in WWII. He was the initial inspiration for THE RIGHT KIND OF WRONG. He’s one of my heroes.
E-Books or Traditional Paper Books?-Oooh this is a toughie. While I still LOVE the look, fell and smell of traditional books, I have to say for economic and space saving reasons — I’m totally with ebooks now. I love how easy it is to take it everywhere with me. And if I’m not digging what I’m reading, it’s super convenient for me to switch to something else I already downloaded. What are you working on now?-I’m currently working on a short story for a New Adult Anthology that will be released later this winter. I also have a prequel novella I’m working on called Whiskey and a Gun. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us?-I really appreciate the time you’re taking to feature a debut author!
