#HolidayBookBash Author Interview #4 with Amy McNulty

Also joining us today is the fabulous Amy McNulty. Amy's YA novel, Nobody's Goddess, is included in the prize giveaway.

Author Name: Amy McNulty
Book Title: Nobody's Goddess
Release Date (if not already released) Released (4/21/2015)
Publisher: Month9Books
Genre: YA Romantic Fantasy
Back Cover Copy (BCC) or Blurb:

In a village of masked men, magic compels each man to love only one woman and to follow the commands of his “goddess” without question. A woman may reject the only man who will love her if she pleases, but she will be alone forever. And a man must stay masked until his goddess returns his love—and if she can’t or won’t, he remains masked forever.

Seventeen-year-old Noll isn't in the mood to celebrate. Her childhood friends have paired off and her closest companion, Jurij, found his goddess in Noll’s own sister. Desperate to find a way to break this ancient spell, Noll instead discovers why no man has ever chosen her.

Thus begins a dangerous game between the choice of woman versus the magic of man. And the stakes are no less than freedom and happiness, life and death—and neither is willing to lose.

When did you first know that you wanted to become a writer?

Sometime in elementary school. I had a blast using the school's sole computer to type stories and add clip art to the text. I'd handwrite or use a typewriter and draw my own pictures, too. A lot of those stories were fanfiction (like for Super Mario Brothers and this old game called Princess Tomato), but I had a few original ideas, too.

In your words, what is your book about?

Love versus freedom and gender roles.

What is the hardest part about being an author?
The hardest part for me is drafting. I find revising and marketing a lot more fun.

What is your favorite part?
Seeing the book out in the world and hearing positive feedback from readers.

What kinds of things do you like to do in your free time (when not writing)?
I'm an avid consumer of anime, manga, comics, books, TV shows and movies. (I even review anime for Anime News Network.) I also play video games and sometimes go on day trips.

What book are you reading now?

I just finished
Fairest by Marissa Meyer and am now working on The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.

What are some of your favorite books of 2015?
I finally read The Lunar Chronicles this year (well, not
Winter yet), so definitely those! It got better and better with each book. I also devoured the Life As We Knew It series by Susan Beth Pfeffer. As far as books released this year goes, I'm usually a year or two (or more) behind with releases, but there was Fairest.

What was your favorite book as a child?
The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander.

Describe your hero in three words.
Stubborn, determined and naive.

What are you working on now?

I'm working on a YA suspense about a geek girl with face blindness. I also just recently started serializing a YA fantasy, Fall Far from the Tree, on Wattpad: (Read it now!)
