Today I’m talking with NYT bestselling author Renée Ahdieh about her latest series. The Beautiful is out, and The Damned will be out in a few months - I just received a bound galley and woo, is the cover gorgeous.
We talk about writing vampire murder mystery, and writing what she refers to as an "Id book." We also discuss the empowerment and feminism inherent in becoming consumed by something we love, like a book or a series of books - especially when it's something we don't have permission or approval to be consumed by, mwahahaha.
We cover craft, character construction, conflict vs puzzle plots, fashion, food, and more writing - there’s a lot!
