Guest Star: Elizabeth Scott

My Guest Star author this week is Elizabeth Scot, author of the brand new novel, The Unwritten Rule


Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like you best friend's boyfriend.

Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself
from wanting more...

And here's an awesome interview with Elizabeth!

1. What’s the first thing you do when starting a new book? What’s the first thing you do when finishing a new book?

Start: Write down everything I know. Finish: Send the draft off trusted readers!

2. As writers, we all love to procrastinate. What’s your favorite procrastination activity?

Reading celebrity gossip.

3. When you set out to write a new book, are you usually sparked by a story idea or a character?

It depends--sometimes it's an idea or even just a scene that I know is going to grow into something, and sometimes it's a character.

4. What’s your favorite part of the writing process? Your least favorite part?

I love writing. I hate, hate, hate revising. But you have to do it.
(And I have to do it a lot!)

5. What are you working on next?

My next book, Grace, will be out from Dutton in September. It's about a girl who's been raised to be a suicide bomber--and what happens when she decides she wants to live.
