Blog Tour: Interview with Stacey Trombley author of Pushing The Boundaries


Pushing The Boundaries by Stacey Tombley
Publisher: Entangled: Crush
Release Date: January 16, 2016
Synopsis: Myra goes to Haiti with one goal: take the photograph that will win a scholarship and prove to her uber-traditional family that she has what it takes to be a photographer instead of a doctor. Her camera has always been her shield against getting too close to anyone, but she didn’t expect the hot teen translator who has an ability to see past her walls.

Elias needs his job as a translator to provide for his siblings. He can’t afford to break the rule forbidding him from socializing with a client. Except this girl Myra insists on going outside the city to capture the perfect picture, and he steps in as her guide in order to keep her safe.

The deeper they travel into the country, the harder they fall for each other. Now they’re both taking risks that could cost each other their dreams.

If they get too close—it could ruin both their lives.

Meet The Author: (Taken From Goodreads)
Stacey Trombley lives in Ohio with her husband, new baby boy and the sweetest Rottweiler you’ll ever meet. Any chance she has she’s off doing or learning something new. She went on her first mission trip to Haiti at age twelve and is still dying to go back. Her “places to travel” list is almost as long as her “books to read” list. 

Interview w/ Stacey

1) What is your favorite part about being a writer?
Creating new stories! Writing is a lot like reading except you’re in control and the characters belong to you. You can make them make all the stupid decisions you want, or the smart ones so it doesn’t drive you crazy. You can create the exact scenes you want there, the ones you want to read.

2) What is your least favorite part?
Holy wow does it take a long time. You can read a book in a day, if you want. It takes weeks to write a book at best, and several more months to revise it and don’t even ask how long it takes to get it published at the beginning (luckily it’s much faster once you have a publisher). It takes a lot of dedication and you need a lot of passion or the work isn’t worth it.

3) Can you give aspiring writers any advice on things like writing in general and publishing books?
There are about a million different paths to success, and many different definitions of it. Don’t be upset when others reach their dreams easily and you have to slog through. It’s also okay if things don’t turn out quite how you expected or even hoped. You can find success in many different ways, or after many different amounts of time. In the meantime, find other writer friends to confide in and never stop believing…or fighting for yourself.

4) What do you do when you have writers block?
Write anyway…usually. I do believe that sometimes you need to let yourself have a break and it’s okay to let yourself have it (fill your cup!) but if the block is due to lack of ideas or motivation—write anyway. I once planned to write a short story but couldn’t for my life think of what to write or how. I was stuck. So I sat down and started writing how I felt. It ended up becoming a story about a girl who waiting at the end of black tunnel for her father to return home, and it won the contest I entered it into. Of course, it won’t end up quite so well but once you start the gears churning your creative juices will return, whether slowly or quickly.

5) Do you have an email newsletter or places where my readers can follow you to get updates and such?
