Author Interview: Megan Crewe & Mini Giveaway!

Thursday, October 29, 2009 |

Today my next author interview is with Megan Crewe, author of Give Up The Ghost. Go check out Megan's website here!


How are you and Cass alike? How are you different?
We both have a sarcastic sense of humor, and we both hesitate to trust people. But Cass is a whole lot more distrusting than I am, and more judgmental--though, to be fair, I might have been just like her if I'd had the same awful past!

If you could ever pick a theme song for GUTG, what would it be? Why?
"Trouble" by Lisa Germano. To me it almost perfectly sums up Cass's mental conflict.

The colors in the cover of GUTG are vibrant and eye-catching, did you have anything to do with it? What do you think of it?
I had nothing to do with the colors! My only contribution to the cover was that I suggested they might use a ghost whispering in someone's ear, and I was very excited when I saw that they'd done so. I loved the image and the colors as soon as I saw it.

GUTG focuses on friendship more than romance. Do you think that this was a good choice? Why?
I feel it was the right choice for the book. GHOST is really about how two people can connect and help each other, and I wanted it to be clear that a bond like that doesn't *have* to be (and often isn't) romantic. I also don't think Cass or Tim were ready for a romance yet. Maybe further down the road!

What do you see as your strengths and weaknesses as an author?
I've had a lot of people tell me they love my descriptions and imagery, so I guess that's a strength! I also think I'm good at coming up with unique ideas and twists on ideas, and at creating multi-faceted characters. I'm always trying to work on plot and structure--I don't feel that comes as naturally to me.

What kind of ghost are you?
I'm not a ghost! LOL. If I was one I'd probably be most like Paige--hanging out with those I felt closest to, but wandering to check in on others out of curiosity from time to time.

What has been the best thing that someone has ever said about your writing?
A few people have told me they cried at certain points in my books. It's amazing to know that something I wrote was able to touch readers to that extent.

Lastly, is there anything else you'd like to add?
I'd like to thank everyone who's helped support GHOST so far! The response from bloggers and readers has been wonderful.

Thanks for the great interview!

TB: Your welcome Megan, that was a great interview!

Fun swag!
I posted it in my sidebar (http://brizmusblogsbooks.blogspot.com)
I tried to find the song she's talked about on youtube, but it's unfortunately not there. I'd never heard of the singer before.

brizmus and Jenn, if you go to the soundtrack section of my website (http://www.megancrewe.com/gutg/soundtrack.html ) you can hear "Trouble"--it's the first song on the player. There's another Lisa Germano song on there that's quite good as well!
