Elizabeth C. Bunce on world-building and novel prep

I've always been interested in reading about other writers' work habits, so I was delighted to see that Cheryl Klein had posted a review with Elizabeth C. Bunce, the author of CURSE AS DARK AS GOLD (which I loved) and STARCROSSED (ooo, must get this).

Elizabeth says that CURSE took three years of "painstaking craft and research" and then six months of revision after the sale. For another book, LIAR's MOON, she did a ton of plotting, outlining and prep before she wrote a single word...and then wrote a solid first draft in just over three months.

Here's Cheryl Klein's full interview with Elizabeth Bunce.

Sounds like a really interesting interview. I love reading the writing process of authors. Thanks.
