Make sure you check out Shelby White's book out NOW on Amazon. The Ouija Board.
Candie and Michelle: Tell us about yourself.
Shelby White: Hi all! My name is Shelby and I am a YA author from Northern California. My debut novel The Ouija Board was just published in December of last year and follows a group of 4 best friends who stumble upon a Ouija board for some late night entertainment and soon realize some games aren’t meant to be played with. This is the first book in "The Paranormal Adventure Series". I am currently writing book 2 of the same series which will be released later this year.
When I’m not writing I love the art of film, live theater and what they all share in common; the art of storytelling.
Candie and Michelle: We can't wait for book 2! Have you always known you wanted to be a writer? Did anything happen to push you in that direction?
Shelby White: I have always loved writing and have for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I would often write short stories for fun of anything that came to mind and inspired me. As I got older those stories continued to write and grow in size. As I continued to jot down my ideas on to paper they began to grow and morph into the novels I write today.
Candie and Michelle: We are so glad you chose to this path. In The Ouija Board, which character was your favorite “good guy” to write about? Who was your favorite villain? Do you feel like there is a particular character you relate to the most?
Shelby White: In The Ouija Board there were actually a lot of fun characters to write. The four best friends in this series, Alycia, Sarah, Lauren, and Sacha are very fun to write as they interact with each other. I relate to each of them and their characteristics, each with their own specific traits I think everyone has within themselves. An observant, fun loving, athletic, fashion forward, adventurous group of friends who are in for the experience of a lifetime.
I also enjoyed writing the interactions with these friends and Lady Sky, the eccentric medium they come in contact with, who helps them on their quest for answers. This creates a group of people we would think might never normally come in contact with each other and creates a whole different realm of possibilities. You never know what might come out of it and the relationship between these characters pleasantly surprised me when I finished writing book one and the direction book 2 will be taking.
Candie and Michelle: Misty has already gotten to now those gals. Candie and I can't wait to get to know them too. What books are you reading now? Have any authors grasped your interest?
Shelby White: I grew up really liking Meg Cabot’s books and enjoyed reading her series’. Later I found other great authors like Jen Calonita and her fantastic books and series’. Then actually over the past few years have found autobiographies to be an interesting read. Reading about fascinating peoples real lives and finding out more about the world around you.
Candie and Michelle: We will have to check those two authors out. :) Anything else you want to say to your readers?
Shelby White: There’s nothing I appreciate more than the support of readers! The Ouija Board is out now on ebook and in paperback on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and more! Ebooks are only .99 cents on all websites. Grab your copy today for a great summer read and gear up for book 2 out later this year!
Candie and Michelle: We can't wait!
Thank you so much, Shelby, for taking the time to sit down with us. We both feel blessed to be featuring you this month.
