YA Spring Fling Blog Hop Author Interview: N.P. Martin

Author N.P. Martin weighs in on Spring, the writing process, and other topics

cover1

What’s your favourite thing about spring?

The promise of better weather, although living in Ireland, that usually takes a while to materialise!

 What’s the best thing about being a writer?

I get to do what I love doing, without having to work shitty jobs for a living. Plus I get to set my own hours.

 What’s the worst thing about being a writer?

Trying to cope with the constant self doubt, fear of failure, the fact that writing is a long game financially etc. The fact that it’s all on you as the author—writing, publishing and marketing. It can get overwhelming

Tell us more about your books.

I started of writing non-fiction books about self defence and martial arts, books that did really well, and still well enough to keep me in money. Hell Is Coming is my first real novel in the dark fantasy genre I love so much. There are four books planned in the Watcher’s Series, with the second book about to be released. I’ve also started writing another series with characters from the Watcher’s Series. The new series is called Bad Grace.

Tell us something interesting about your main character.

She drank demons blood and now has the ability to transform into a demon herself.

Coffee or Tea?

Love coffee in the mornings, love tea in the evenings.

Plotter or Pantser?

Despite my best efforts to change things, I’m still very much a panster. I come up with a loose story structure first, then I just start writing. It can get hairy at times but it works for me.

 Why do you write YA?

 I didn’t set out to write YA. My main interest is in dark fantasy. It just so happened that my main characters are young adults so I guess that qualifies me for the genre.

 What are your top tips for surviving a bad review?

It’s hard not to take them personally but you can’t do that. Accept that even the best writer’s get one star reviews. Your work will not appeal to everyone. Take it on the chin and move on as best you can, that’s all you can do really. Or hunt down the reviewer and kill them slowly. Up to you.

 What are your top tips for surviving a zombie apocalypse?

Make sure you’ve seen The Walking Dead first!

 What inspires you?

A love of writing. The challenge of going as far as I can in it, of creating better and better work. Other books and TV shows in the dark fantasy genre also inspire me.

 Where can readers find your books?

Within hours, older teens and adults are dead. Thirteen-year-old Abby Leigh must help her brother Jordan and baby sister Toucan survive in the terrifying new world. Battling against hunger and violent gangs, Abby is helpless against the biggest threat of all, the time bomb that is her adolescence.

B

The Purple Moon was just the beginning. . .

When the bacteria from a passing comet kills off older teens and adults, thirteen-year-old Abby Leigh must help her brother and baby sister survive in this new world. Battling against hunger and violent gangs, Abby is helpless against the biggest threat of all, the surviving adults.

After developing an antibiotic, CDC scientists emerge from quarantine, but only help a privileged few, leaving millions of children to fend for themselves. When her little sister Toucan falls ill, Abby makes the dangerous journey from her island home in Maine to the adult colony in New York to save her.

Abby fears that time is running short for Touk, but she soon learns that time is running out for everyone outside the colony.

Thirteen-year-old Abby Leigh must help her brother Jordan and baby sister Toucan survive in the terrifying new world. Battling against hunger and violent gangs, Abby is helpless against the biggest threat of all, the onset of puberty.

C

As Abby Leigh and her family eagerly await the celestial event of the millennia, dust from a passing comet turns the sun and moon purple. But the dust contains deadly bacteria, and pretty soon nearly all teens and adults are dead. 

As the time bomb of puberty ticks inside her, thirteen-year-old Abby struggles to keep her brother Jordan and baby-sister Toucan safe in this new and terrifying world. And, in a desperate race to save millions, can Abby put the lives of strangers above those she loves the most?

With nearly 1000-pages of high-action dystopian drama, The Toucan Trilogy is all about the love and strength of family. It is a story about never giving up.
