Author Interview Questions?

Hey, everyone,

I have an opportunity to ask Lauren Oliver (YA author of the Delirium series, Before I Fall, Panic, and many more) a question that, if chosen, will be featured in the Goodreads YA newsletter. She’s one of my favorite authors, so, of course, I’ve been racking my brain and have actually managed to come up with a few things to ask her, but I thought I’d present it to the hive mind. You know, two (or fifty) heads are better than one and all that. So, what say you? What’s a unique question to ask?

In a Perfect Word Editing

My name is Erin Beth Liles, and I have several years of editing experience. Aside from my bachelor's degree, I have a certificate in copyediting from UC San Diego, and I have studied developmental editing with the Author-Editor Clinic. I've worked with both independent and major publishing houses, but my true love is working directly with authors. I also write young adult fiction. My YA novel, Phoenix Burning, is represented by Mansion Street Literary (and I have another novel in progress) and my short stories have been published in Stories for Children Magazine and Knowonder. Several of my nonfiction articles have appeared in Austin Family Magazine, Mothering Magazine online, and Mamapedia. I also have a picture book forthcoming with Guardian Angel Publishing. My novelette, Outside the Walls, is featured in Clean Teen Publishing's Wonderstruck Anthology. I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, Copyediting, and She Writes.
