Welcome YA Author Victoria Scott! Her Young Adult mystery novel, WE TOLD SIX LIES, is in stores today.

What is We Told Six Lies about in your own words?

It’s a story about eighteen-year-old Cobain Kelly, whose girlfriend goes missing. As Cobain searches for Molly, the police look at him as their primary suspect, and as more of Cobain’s friends and family members start accusing him of hurting her – and he replays the memories of their relationship - Cobain starts wondering if maybe he did do something to Molly.

You’ve published eight other books. How difficult was this one to write comparatively?

This was by far my most challenging book. It’s told in first, third, and second person. You read that right. A good 25 percent of this book is in second person. There are also time jumps between when Cobain is reliving his relationship with Molly, and the present when he is trying to find her. If that wasn’t enough, there are also location jumps. So yes, a challenging book to be sure.

What are some fun facts about We Told Six Lies?

Cobain gets his name from Kurt Cobain (name that band!), there are handwritten journal entries throughout the book, and the book also includes illustrated artwork – some done by my editor’s talented son, and some drawn by my artist cousin who lives in the Texas desert.

Why do you think readers would enjoy We Told Six Lies?

They’ll like it if they enjoy unreliable narrators, characters who are truly flawed, and stories that read quickly. I think the characters won’t be loved by all, but I do think it’s one of those stories readers are going to want to talk about, and that’s always my intention when putting pen to paper - to create a reaction inside the reader, good or bad.

If We Told Six Lies went to dinner with another two books, which ones would they be in order for everyone to get along?

I’m going to say Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn because they share undeniable darkness, and We Were Liars because both that book and We Told Six Lies has a thick atmosphere and a nice twist.

You run a subscription box company for novelists, goScribbler.com. What is one of the best pieces of advice you can offer other writers?

I want to tell writers to write what they want, but seasoned authors know that’s not the whole truth. Writing for publication means tailoring your story to be accepted by the masses, not just the author. So my advice is this: find a quiet hour each week to write for yourself. Only yourself. That free time will allow you to quench your artistic thirst, and you can return to your for-the-readers project with a clear head. And who knows, maybe that story you write for yourself will end up being your breakout title. And you would have written it without any expectations placed upon it.

Thanks for visiting with us today, Victoria!

WE TOLD SIX LIES by Victoria Scott

We Told
Six Lies
Remember how many lies we told, Molly? It’s enough to make my head spin. You were wild when I met you, and I was mad for you. But then something happened. And now you’re gone.

But don’t worry. I’ll find you. I just need to sift through the story of us to get to where you might be. I’ve got places to look, and a list of names.

The police have a list of names, too. See now? There’s another lie. There is only one person they’re really looking at, Molly.

And that’s yours truly.
