Woohoo! Another Silver Pen: Laura Kadner!!
Congratulations to Laura Kadner of LA! She has reached Silver Pen by writing >15,000 words! WOOHOO!!
Feel free to congratulate Laura on her website, Twitter, NaNoWriMo, or her Malala Fund page! And also read on to find out more about her and her project. 🙂
What is your favorite book and/or author, and what draws you to them?
Too many! Most recently I read Marie Lu’s Warcross and absolutely adored the creativity of the world, the characters, and all the twists and turns and action. I also loved Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristof’s Illuminae books because I love the unique format, the humor, and the sassy characters.
Is this your first book? If not, what was the first book you ever finished writing? Tell us a little about it.
Nope. My first was a YA fantasy called Dan and V Go to Hell, which was a super loose retelling of Dante’s Inferno. Just your typical teen romp through a high school hellscape.
What’s the working title of your NaNoWriMo17 project?
No real title yet! I’m referring it to as Space Con.
Give us an elevator pitch of your project.
It’s basically a YA version of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (the 80s moving starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine who play con men on the French Riviera) but in space with teen girls doing the conning.
Share your favorite line/short paragraph from your book so far.
