THE INTERVIEW!

(it’s a little long, but I HIGHLY recommend you read it all)

May: What were the easiest and hardest parts about writing The Dressmaker’s Secret and Ivy Introspective?

Kellyn: The easiest thing about writing The Dressmaker’s Secret was Alice. She was just fun to write, being a little kid and all. (I LOVE CHILDREN SO MUCH THEY ARE AWESOME!!! Excuse me being obsessed with little people.)

The hardest thing to write was probably Claire (or Miss Chattoway). She was almost impossible to write. Such a pickle with emotions I couldn’t even begin to fathom until I realized she was basically me + scarring backstory + my sister* + being a middle child… Okay, frankly she was quite complicated and hard to figure out.

As for Ivy Introspective… I think the whole thing was hard. XD Okay, I guess it was easier to write chapters where Ivy and Violet were talking and it was all amusing… but it was still hard. ‘Cause writing is torture. And torture is painful. And pain is baaaaad. (I actually have an unusually high pain threshold, but whatever.)

*not my authory sister; my other sister… who… I don’t really know how to describe… I should probably come up with a term for her. How about my sister who hates Keira Knight’s Elizabeth Bennet? Kinda long…


May: Who are your favorite characters and why? (From TDS or IvIn or both.)

Kellyn: My favorite characters from TDS are Alice, Kirk, Nettie, Hazel, and Miss Chattoway. Which is, um, quite a few. I think Miss Chattoway is my all-time favorite, though.

In IvIn, my favorites are Violet, Jordy, and Posy. They’re all great characters. Especially Violet. Violet is so sarcastic and witty and yet still a girl who just needs a hug. And cake. She plainly needs cake. Chocolate cake. (Or Red Velvet. I really like Red Velvet cake…)

May: I WANT THE CAKE.

May: What message(s) are you trying to convey through The Dressmaker’s Secret and/or Ivy Introspective?

Kellyn: For TDS, forgiveness. People are going to do bad stuff in your life and hurt you… You can be bitter for the rest of your life, but we all know revenge gets no one anywhere (see Hamlet and all those other stories when people die ’cause they’re revengeful).

For IvIn, individuality. There are lots of different people out there… but that doesn’t mean they’re weird or unworthy or less. It just means they’re different. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Our individuality is what makes us individuals.

*is wise beyond belief* *and feels really cheesy and cliché* *assures everyone I’m not cheesy and cliché* *ignores eye rolls*


May: What are your tips for writers who are struggling to write?

Kellyn: I’d ask them the same question I ask myself: Why are you writing? If it’s a nasty chore for you, why bother? Why isn’t writing fun anymore?

Once you find out that, you can figure out how you can put the fun back in writing and write again! For instance, when (re)writing Ivy Introspective last summer, it became a nasty chore. It was dreadful.

And so I asked myself … why isn’t writing fun anymore? I figured out it was because I’d let myself get too deeply involved in the drama, the heavy prose, and trying to make a good story instead of just letting a good story come. I wasn’t letting it be fun.

Image result for this is supposed to be fun gif

So … I started writing a dash of whimsy back in. I started focusing on the Ivy on the inside instead of how other people saw her. I started adding more dialogue.

And the book got written. Granted, it got written months and years after it should have, but it got written.

I think a great deal of the problem is that the inability to write and cure of said inability are situational. I don’t think this would work for everyone. But it’s something to add to your repertoire of things to try when you can’t write.


May: What step of the writing process is your favorite and why? Least favorite?

Kellyn: My favorite is definitely daydreaming about my book. (Yes, that is a legit part of the writing process… don’t question it…) It’s so much fun to dream about your characters and plot and setting. It makes me feel like I could actually write a good book… 😉

My least favorite is editing. I’m sorry, but I don’t like redoing the same sentence over and over again fifty times and making a little change and then coming back and changing it back, etc.


May: Why do you self-publish? (Instead of traditionally publishing.)

Kellyn: I have several reasons.

  1. I don’t want NOBODY’s nose in my writing but my own. I love having people critique my work, but I don’t want the person who has the last say to be some editor/publisher/etc. who may or may not know what’s best for my baby.
    ..
  2. I want to make my own decisions about covers. I want to be in charge of that first impression. I’ve talked to several traditionally published authors who told me that they don’t have any input on the covers. One said she pleaded with her publishing company to change it… and they wouldn’t. I don’t want that to happen to my babies!

Image result for sassy snaps gif

  1. I’m not a patient person. Honestly, this was probably my #1 reason at first. I hate waiting. I made some mistakes along the way, but it was an incredible journey, and I really believe that it was right choice for me. I think eventually I do stand a chance at being a decent author this way. And I believe that self-publishing will eventually become more and more respectable.

That said, self-publishing is DEFINITELY not for everyone, and I would consider publishing traditionally someday. In fact, I think I’d like to. As long as I’m not required to get too emotionally attached to my books… 😉 Just kidding.


May: Since you’re a historical fiction writer, how do you research? Does it take long?

Kellyn: Actually, I don’t research.

Okay, yes, I do. Not as much as some historical fiction authors, though. Mostly by reading fiction written during the era I’m writing about. I also use various websites (and Google… Google is my buddy) and a couple books I’ve collected/gotten from the library.

I mostly research while outlining and a little bit while I’m writing. Sometimes I look into some things when I first get a plot bunny… but most of my research happens in between the actual outlining and writing process—while figuring everything out. It’s an ongoing process. I was still researching trains when I got into the third draft of IvIn…


May: How would you describe your writing process?

Kellyn: A jog, a sprint, and then a ridiculously slow walk? That’s what it feels like, anyway. Outlining is my jog, writing is my sprint, and editing is my ridiculously slow walk. In between are random spurts of energy or non-energy.*

Related image

*No, I didn’t forget what the antonym of energy… Why do you ask?


May: If you had to publish only ONE book, what would it be and why?

Kellyn: I don’t know! This question is too hard. *throws a tantrum* But seriously, how can one answer a question like that? I have no idea!

I guess… At Her Fingertips (The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy #3). It’s hopefully coming out sometime in 2018, and… I’m waaay too excited to share it with everyone. I don’t know if anyone but me and my best friend will like it, but who cares. The author thinks it’s awesome. Everyone else can shut it.


May: And finally, what inspires you to write?

Kellyn: Pupppiiiieeeeeesss!!!

Image result for puppies gif
May: *SCREAMS*

Seriously, though bundles of cuteness just make me want to dash off an epic.

Okay, not really. Lots of things inspire me to write. My friends and fellow bloggers/authors. My boring life that doesn’t give me much else to do. My character whispering in my ears at night… threatening to murder me if I don’t write their stories…


I had a lot of fun with this interview, Kell! Thanks for answering the questions so awesomely. 😉 (Also I was the one who did all those gifs… because gifs.)

  1. Such a great interview MAY!!! I LOVED that you asked her all about the self publishing journey and why she chose that route… as an unpublished writer I think that question looms LARGE in all blogger writers minds!! And the messages… FORGIVENESS and INDIVIDUALITY! Such important themes… it’s great you supported Kellyn, she’s a lovely writer!

  5. Well, I enjoyed learning about Kellyn’s writing process! I write short stories, so to use Kellyn’s metaphor, my process would be more like: sprint, done. And the rest of the time I just mess around with ideas that get nowhere. A successful story either comes to me or it doesn’t. I’m working on that. 😉

    I will definitely be checking out Kellyn’s books on Amazon! Yes, yes, yes!

    I’ll consider self-publication verses traditional publication when the time for such a decision actually comes to me. 😀 However, I think traditional publication sounds a little better for the newbies, but if your books become really well known, then if you self-publish your books, people will know who you are and you will make money. XD

    Dogs. Chocolate cake. 😉 Lol.

    Kellyn, two novels??? Really??? And you’re in high school??? That’s an incredible accomplishment – congrats!

    • It was really fun to read about her process! And haha, mine is just like “walk walk walk RUN walk”. Because #procrastination. XD

      Yay! I’m sure she’ll be happy to hear it. 🙂

      Self-publication is an easier route, I think, because you don’t have to be accepted for publishing houses and agents and such, BUT self-publishing is still hard. XD I prefer traditional, though!

      YES. EVERYTHING WE NEED IN LIFE. PLUS BOOKS.

      And she’s written more before this! :OOO

  6. EXCUSE ME KELL I LOVE AFOP AS WELL DON’T GIVE ME THAT YOU DON’T KNOW IF ANYONE WILL LIKE IT. GOODNESS GRACIOUS.

    Annnnywayyy, sorry about that, May. 😉 I’ll get to actually responding to you now.

    have you ever been published before? No…I wish! I am trying to get some short stories published, but that requires revision/editing, AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M DOING.

    self-publishing or traditional publishing? I DON’T KNOW. I think eventually I would like to be a hybrid author and do both, but I want to start with traditionally publishing, I think.

    cats or dogs? Hmmm… I have a cat, but I like dogs as well. I think it depends on what I’m in the mood for. Something easy to take care of and yet snuggly–let’s go with a cat. But a happy, loyal, playful, always-wants-your-attention–dogs are great. I think I’d like to have a dog at one point, but I do love my cat.

    FAVORITE TYPE OF CAKE??? Ooh, hard question (especially since cake really isn’t my favorite dessert…). I like lemon and chocolate (not on the same cake), but only the kind that we make. They’re both bundt cakes, and the lemon one has this yummy glaze that crystallizes after the first day and is delicious, and then the chocolate one is really moist and good. 😀

    Also, I like the new header! I think I liked the other one better, but this one is still really nice (and I appreciate how it matches the color of the words in your menu!). 🙂

    • XDD YOU TELL HER

      And yeah, I hope you get to publish one day!!! That would be soooo awesome. 😉

      I feel like traditionally published books are more successful??? I also like it because the books I read are traditionally published and it’s just #familiar. XD

      DOGS. YES. DOGS. I LOVE DOGS.

      (Cake isn’t my favorite dessert either don’t worry… *hides*) I like chocolate! I know I like another type too but I forgot… XD

      Thanks! And yeah, I felt like that one was too tall and took up too much space. 😛 Also I got a new tagline, so. XD

      • I know! It would be so awesome!

        I read traditionally published books way more as well because then I can check them out from the library and not have to pay money to read them.

        Oops, I didn’t even notice you had a new tagline…I like it! 😀

  7. PUPPIES YESSSSS

    I loved hearing about Kellyn’s points! She gives such amazing writing advice because lately I haven’t been able to edit and I’ve been concentrating on world building which is fun since much of it just comes naturally to me.

    Self-publishing or traditional? I’d love to go to traditional, honestly. I know there’s a very small chance to get a big break in the publishing business. Yes, it honestly stinks that we don’t get the final say all the time or we don’t get all the money from it, but I don’t want to write just to do it for the money, because then why are we here???? I just want to go into traditional publishing for a broader audience and because I can’t always handle everything by myself– it’d be nice to have a second opinion.

    I want to enter the giveaway so bad! But I can’t for reasons (cough cough I accidentally entered one one time and it took a month of proving they were a legit person and not a creepy person on the Internet before my parents told the person hosting the giveaway it’s okay to send the thingys cough cough).

    • Her writing advice is SO good! I’m definitely going to have to make writing more fun for me. 😛

      YES I SO AGREE!!! One, I think traditionally published books get a wider audience, and while it’s not fun that you don’t have some control over some things, they can be really helpful. And two, my DREAM is to see a book I wrote on a bookshelf in a bookstore… but with self-publishing? High unlikely.

      Hmm, maybe you can tell her that you want to enter for the eBooks??? Instead of paperbacks. XD Also — did you see what points I’m using for the romance collab? (We’re posting tomorrow right?)

  12. This was a great interview May, and so much fun to read as well. I am certainly in awe that Kellyn Roth has published her books (self published no less) and she’s still in high school, that seems like an amazing acheivement to me and certainly shows how dedicated she is to writing as well. I also loved her advice on writing. It’s the same with blogging I think if you’re not enjoying it then why are you doing it? Definitely an important question for people to ask themselves now and again. Oh it seems like everyone hates editing too! 😀
    Again great interview May! 🙂 ❤

                      IT’S OKAY I’M DOING THAT TOO RIGHT NOW (well answering comments but whatever???). IF YOU DON’T ANSWER IMMEDIATELY I UNDERSTAND. XD

                      No it really is NOT, Madi. STOP ASSUMING THINGS. IT’S VERY RUDE.

                      Shouldn’t all friends threaten one another at one point in their friendship??? XD
