So I know I told you guys the last Blog Swap Tour post was on Thursday and it was. But just like how her story pops up at the end of A Journey of Words as a sort of bonus story, it was decided that Analise’s blog interview would be added as a bonus at the end of the tour. A Journey of Words is available through Scout Media’s website (www.scoutmediabooksmusic.com) and now Amazon worldwide as well as all good book retailers. You can also purchase the book personally from your favourite AJOW author for a signed copy. So the only thing left for me to do is introduce the youngest member of our talented storytellers, at 9 years old, I give you Analise Paone.
Author Name: Analise Paone
Title of your AJOW story: The Other World
Synopsis: A girl stumbles into an alternate scary world through a blue glow and meets all the classic monsters.
What inspired you to write this story:
I love to watch scary movies like “Poltergeist” and read scary books like “Goosebumps.” I love scary stuff so I thought to myself, “yeah, I should try that.”
How long have you been writing:
I came up with story ideas when I was 6 years old, but I didn’t have the time to write them. When I turned 7 years old, I started to write poems, and when I was 8 years old, I started writing short stories and stapling the pages together and showing them to my family.
What genre do you usually write in:
Horror, comedy, and non-fiction.
What are you working on right now:
I’m working on my first comic book and trying to work on more non-fiction stories and poetry.
What advice would you give to new writers: Come up with an idea and write it on paper first with a pencil so you can erase your mistakes. If you don’t know how to end a story or get stuck on a part, ask someone to help you. Also, put a lot of details and make your story make sense.
