Blog Tour: Seers
Heather, tell us a little about yourself.
I spend most of my time with friends and family, reading, writing, or watching movies. I also like cooking, and playing the flute. I'm the second oldest child in a family of twelve, and I live in Northern Utah. I recently graduated from Snow College, and I'm now persuing my Bachelor's degree as an English major. Seers is my first published novel, though I've been writing for most of my life.
Tell us a little about Seers.
Seers is basically the story of Kate Bennett—a senior in high school who's trying to deal with the recent loss of her parents, and newly acquired psychic abilities. She can see mood auras, and if that's not weird enough she's about to start seeing invisible people with no auras at all. The book follows her as she learns the truth concerning Guardians, Demons, and herself. Seers has it all: humor, romance, suspence, action, and mystery.
What is your favorite part of the writing process?
For me, the best part is crafting the perfect scene. When the description comes together with the diologue in a perfect balance, and the characters are able to connect with the reader; that, to me, is the most rewarding thing. I love pulling away from the laptop after a fierce fit of writing, and seeing that I did something right.
As a new writer, how do you deal with negative reviews?
I write because I love to write. Period. Yeah, I appreciate positive reviews—who doesn't want to be told “good job”? I hope people like my book, and that they're able to identify with the story, but in the end I don't let the negative feedback get to me. I'm going to keep on writing, regardless of what other people think. I'm happy with the book. I had a good time writing it. As long as I don't lose sight of that, I'll be able to handle anything.
Do you have another book in the works? Can you tell us a little about it?
First and formost I'm focusing on The Seers Trilogy. The second book, Demons, will hopefully be out sometime next year. I'm also working on some other projects that dabble in other genres: a sci-fi adventure full of memory tampering, a medieval suspence story with a distinct Robin Hood feel, and even an LDS romance novel. I go where my imagination commands!
