Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Hi! My name is Skye Malone. I’m a non-binary author of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. It’s nice to meet you!
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
The latter books in the series are always harder. When I’m first starting out, the sky’s the limit on what I can do in that world, but later I have to follow my own world’s rules!
When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?
I am always conscious of when I might be repeating myself or copying what I’ve already done in a previous book, and I never want to do that, so it’s always at the forefront of my mind to keep things fresh and interesting.
Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?
Get sleep. Seriously, get sleep. You may think you don’t need it because the rush of writing words is awesome, especially late at night when the world is quiet and it’s just you and the characters, but trust me. Get sleep. Your stories and your health will be better for it.
On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?
4-5 hours, sometimes more
Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.
I love them all. Honestly, I do. Plus, picking a favorite will only make the others cranky at me. 😉
What is your definition of success?
Being happy with what I’ve written while also being able to make a living from it.
Do you have anything you want to share that didn’t fit on one of these questions?
Thanks for reading this! Come see me at Writers on the River. I’d love to meet you in person!
