I’m hosting an interview with Kat Mellon, the author of literary fiction novella “Creation”. Thank you for answering my questions, Kat!
1) What is the hardest part about being an author?
Having the discipline to write (and on a consistent schedule, no less)! Novels don’t always write themselves, particularly when inspiration is lacking. See #4 for my binge-writing tendencies…
2) Can you give us the synopsis of your book?
Here’s the short version: Creation explores the consequences of a society in which creative individuals are forced to create strictly for the benefit of others.
3) Is this part of a series or a stand alone?
To many a reader’s dismay, Creation is a standalone work of fiction. I have no plans to write a sequel at this time.
4) How many hours do you write per month?
Not enough! There are months where I hammer out 100K words (roughly 400 “book” pages!) of material and months where I write nothing at all.
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. This novel is so much more than a novel. In fact, it’s unearthly brilliance that was somehow captured, trapped, and bound together for the human race to delight over. 😉
6) What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on a literary fiction novel titled Flowers When You’re Dead. It involves a socially isolated nineteen-year-old guy, art therapy, and a vintage shop. You can learn more about it at fwydbook.blogspot.com.
Author: Kat Mellon
Genre: Literary Fiction
Who owns what you create?
Creation is a provocative exploration of what it means to be free. Set in a dystopian future where creativity is exclusively harnessed for the greater good, two artistically talented individuals remind us all never to take for granted the product of our own work and imagination.
Creation is inspired by Ayn Rand’s Anthem and Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go.
Kat is a young author living in Fort Collins, CO. She graduated cum laude from the University of New Mexico with a BA in English at age nineteen and is a master of procrastination and pizza eating. She will soon query agents with her biggest and baddest novel, Flowers When You’re Dead.
