So, TODAY MARKS THE THREE MONTH MARK UNTIL THE NEAR WITCH IS RELEASED. And we have a treat for you! First, Victoria was kind enough to answer a few questions:
Describe The Near Witch in 5 words or less :)
–Bewitching wind-strewn ghost story.
What was your favorite character to write in The Near Witch?
–The sisters, Magda and Dreska. I have so, so much fun writing them. I actually love writing sibling dynamic in general (maybe because I’m an only child, and I always coveted that bond) but writing them in particular has been a blast. One is a stick and the other a stone, are very, very old, and they have their own language, a language of bodies and looks.
Do you have any writing rituals you have to follow?
–I want to have rituals. I also want to lie and say I have them. The truth is I have rituals I TRY to follow and promptly fail at. Life just gets in the way. I do try to write every single day, and when I’m home in Nashville, I try to write some in the morning, and some at night when the world goes quiet, but I don’t get much more specific than that, unfortunately. It just changes depending on the weather, my mood, whether I’m editing or drafting or rocking back and forth in a corner cursing my book and looking through job ads.
Now. Here is the NEAR WITCH RAP! For your enjoyment (or extreme laughter, whichever you prefer).
Now, the giveaway. I am giving away 3 of Victoria’s favorite things: Cookies, a teddy bear, and White Cat by Holly Black. And because it’s a series, I am throwing in an ARC of Red Glove too!
