A Book and a Chat with Lacey Boldyrev

Lacey Boldyrev is my guest on today’s "A Book and a Chat", the name might sound a little familiar to listeners of the program, as Lacey has been on the show a few times before, previously though as a listener asking questions of the shows guests. Today though, this YA reader, blogger and aspiring author, is herself a guest on the show.

Lacey has always been “into” YA literature, and though it was only in February 2009 she started writing seriously.

As she puts it…

Within 30 days I had a rough (like #50 grit sandpaper, rough) first draft of a YA historical I call FATED. I’ve revised it for over a year and it’s still not ready.”

Fated” might not be ready, but as we learned during the entertaining thirty minute show, Lacey, is already in print. Her short story “PARALLEL” is appears in an anthology called “REBEL MOON” published by Rebel Books.

This I’m sure is only a start as there is already a full length novel “GREYSKIN” going through the final cleanup, already out there seeking representation, with another story well on the way.

Lacey shared with us her news on her writing as well as discussing some of the wonderful authors of 2010, and how they have not only helped aspiring authors such as Lacey, also just the way they have been so approachable and how much success they have had over the last year, we also touched on the news that Shannon Delany for instance, with three books in the “13 to Life” series has just been asked to produce a further two books.

Not only did Lacey share with us about her blog and how her fellow bloggers from that site have helped her along the way, but also she shared with us about a brand new blog. Tangled Fiction blog spot ( is where four YA writers collaborate to complete one story a month. Launch date for that highly interesting site is September 7th.

From reading to writing, authors to publicity the show covered many areas. It was a pleasure to talk to lacey as a guest and I’m sure that next time I am lucky enough to have her on the program it will be interviewing a fully fledged author.

So sit back and enjoy today’s “A Book and a Chat with Lacey Boldyrev
