Interview: Sophie Jordan *Giveaway*

With the release of Vanish on Tuesday, Sophie Jordan is stopping by BNR for a quick interview and a giveaway for our followers.
Sophie Jordan grew up in the Texas hill country where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Avon historical romances. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows. Sophie also writes paranormal romances under the name Sharie Kohler.
Interview with Sophie

What was the process of getting your first book published?

I went the standard route of getting an agent first. This process took almost two years. I queried and submitted again and again again until someone finally said yes! ;) Ironically, it only took her 2 weeks to sell my first book.

What are the differences between writing YA and writing adult?

Hmm, for me each book is a different journey based on the characters and story. Whether it's YA or adult doesn't signify to me. Every book is a new experience. Some easier to write than others, some not ... it just depends on the story and how I approach it. That said, I probably most enjoy writing in first person in YA - something I don't ever do in adult.

Lastly, what would you rather be a draki or werewolf and why?

Oh, a draki! If you're a draki, the possibilities are endless. Aside of flying, which they all do, your talent, ie paranormal ability, can be anything. Fire-breathing, invisibility ... the list goes on.
