Interview with Karen Metcalf + GIVEAWAY!

Karen Metcalf, author of In the Storm.

Here's my review.

I have to ask: Will there be a sequel to In the Storm? If so, will it be another novella and e-book? If not, is there anything else you're working on?

I am honored that someone would request it, but I honestly don’t know if there will be a sequel to In the Storm. This is something I just can’t answer right now. I am, however, working on a separate piece. I don’t want to say too much, but it will be in the same genre, and longer.

Where did you get the idea for Carly’s storm world?

A storm world like that would be heavenly for me. I absolutely love thunderstorms, and have never seen any as beautiful as those on the North Carolina coast. I spent many a night as a kid on the back porch or in bed, struggling to stay awake just to watch them. I wanted to write about a place where it was like that all the time.

Naming characters can be a writer’s worst nightmare. How do you do it?

The name Mitchell came from my younger brother Michael. Richard was chosen specifically because Dick is the nickname for it. For the others, I spend a little time throwing names around in my head, but they usually just come to me.

What was it like to be e-published?

Just to say I am published is amazing! It is a totally different market for sure. There are still a lot of people who just want to hold a paperback in their hands. However, it is so much easier to go international this way. Anyone around the world can easily log in, and have it in seconds, without waiting on shipping. We were also able to sell it for a great deal cheaper than the cost of a paper copy.

What’s YOUR favorite book and why?

I am a big Stephen King fan. He originally wrote The Long Walk under his pseudonym, Richard Bachman. It’s been my hands-down favorite for at least ten years now. In all honesty, it is YA by today’s standards, which is probably why I love it so much.


I cannot thank Karen enough for giving me the chance to review In the Storm, answering my questions, and providing me with the opportunity to give one lucky winner an e-copy (in PDF, mobi, and epub formats) of the book!
