Today I’m excited to introduce debut novelist, Amy Matayo. Her first book, The Wedding Game, just released on November 16.
Amy, can you give us a little background on your writing journey?
NR: I know you’re recovering from the first week of your book launch, can you share some highlights and maybe something you’d have done differently during your career?
Amy: One thing I would do differently is time management. I am the world’s worst procrastinator. A lot of sleepless nights might have been avoided if I could learn to pace myself a little better.
As for highlights—just seeing my book release has been the biggest one. It’s a little weird to see your book release...almost like watching it happen to someone else. But it’s fun!
I would tell myself to start earlier! I’ve had this dream my whole life and with it came a list of excuses why the timing was all wrong. I would also tell myself to write what I want to write without following a strict set of guidelines. For me, it’s the only way to be creative.
