Crossroads Tour: Stacey Kade

What were you doing when your first idea of The Ghost and the Goth came to you?
Honestly, I don’t remember, but a good guess would be that I was at work or driving there.

Do you base any of you characters on people you know?
Nope. Though, all of them are based on observations of real people. If Alona is a fairly accurate example of a “mean girl,” it’s because I knew plenty of them in high school and paid attention.

I read on your website this will be a trilogy. Any hints to what we can expect in the second book?
More trouble for Alona and Will, more kissing, more bickering…but there’s also someone new in town who is causing trouble between them.

Do you make playlists when you write? If so, can you share a few songs?
I do, usually. With Ghost and the Goth, I picked one artist, Tegan and Sara. My favorites on that list are: “Where Does the Good Go?” “I Know, I Know, I Know” and “You Wouldn’t Like Me.”

If we lived in a world where books and writing didn’t exist (I know, scary thought) what would you be doing?
Telling stories in whatever way was legally allowed! I’d be a bard, perhaps? :-)

Thanks for stopping by, Stacey!

Okay girls and boys - that's it! No more Crossroads Tour after today. I hope you all have enjoyed the tour and a HUGE thanks to Judith Graves for putting this together.

I have enjoyed this tour so much! Thanks to all the hosts and authors and Judith.

I've learned a lot about the authors and their books-so many more books to go on my TBR pile. And I've learned so much about the writing process. Great advice from the authors.
