Alibi Tour: Author Interview

Alibi by Annie Miles, John Byrne, Isabel Eckersley, Sorrel Provola
Synopsis: Abigail Shelton is dead. 

Spring Valley's golden girl is found floating face-down in her boyfriend’s pool, hands bound behind her back, head bleeding, drugs and alcohol in her system. Her friends are the only suspects – and they all have reasons to want her dead. Everyone has an alibi, but no one is innocent.

ALIBI is a 4-part young adult e-book series. Each one-hundred page installment reveals the perspective of a different character: the secret love, the nemesis, the boyfriend, the best friend. As their tales unfold, we learn that Abby is not as perfect as everyone believes, but she’s not the only one with secrets to hide. This page-turning tale of suspense, betrayal, murder, and lust will keep fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars up and reading well past curfew.

Author Interview: Sorrel Provola author of ALIBI Volume IV: Rowan and the forthcoming Colebrook #2: Dane's Addiction.

P: How did you come to be one of four authors writing this series? 
S: I took a writers' workshop with one of the founders of Twist a few years ago and she thought I'd be a good fit for the ALIBI project. 

P: Will you briefly explain your part/experience in writing ALIBI? 
S: I agonize endlessly over the plots and narrative construction of my own writing. Twist present their writers with a well constructed plot outline and wonderfully detailed character dossiers that take a lot of the creative angst out of writing, leaving behind only a fun, invigorating creative process. 

P: What were the challenges?
S: The characters I've written are anti-heroes of a sort, and they're always difficult to write. Finding that balance between the dark and the light in your morally complicated and/or compromised character is more difficult than you think. It's always important not to slip into cliches or tropes. 

P: What is your favorite scene in the ALIBI series or was your favorite to write? 
S: I'm a big fan of writing sex scenes, as it turns out. I didn't know this about myself until I was writing ALIBI. But building the tension between your two characters and letting it reach a, shall we say, point of crisis, is fun writing and really gets you into the psychology of your characters, putting them in such a vulnerable and/or powerful situation. 

P: What is an interesting fact readers may not know about this series, you, or the character you wrote. 
S: One of my greatest fears is that George R.R. Martin won't finish The Game of Thrones series. If he doesn't, I think I'll die. That and scorpions. I hate scorpions.
