Synopsis: Author Lisa Lueddecke discusses her Young Adult fantasy novel, A SHIVER OF SNOW AND SKY, the origins of its fairy tale-esque story, what draws her to the Young Adult demographic, writing three-dimensional characters, successfully juggling multiple POVs, and the necessity of enthusiastic beta readers.
And be sure to order your copy of Jim Warner’s Actual Miles, his third collection of poetry and his first book in over a decade! Criss-crossing Rust Belt mining towns and Filipino rice paddies, Actual Miles finds Warner disassembling home and extracting language from record grooves and Mason jars to reclaim his identity as a bastard son of the highway.

I usually don’t link to books on Amazon because I like to encourage listeners to shop small and purchase from independent bookstores. That said, Lisa’s book isn’t available in the US (yet), so I’ve included both a link to Amazon and a link to Waterstones (UK). If you live outside the United states and are able to purchase ASOSAS from an indie shop, PLEASE DO. Other books mentioned in the episode are linked to Gibson’s Bookstore, a lovely indie bookshop in Concord, New Hampshire. – HM
