Introducing Amy Lukavics, YABC's Author of the Week!!

 

Ever since she was little, Amy was especially intrigued by horror books and movies. Raised in a small mountain town in Arizona, she sustained herself on a steady diet of Goosebumps, Fear Street, and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books before discovering Stephen King in her mother's bookshelf. 

Amy lives with her husband, their two precious squidlings, and an old gentleman cat by the name of Frodo. When she isn't writing, she enjoys cooking, crafting, and playing games across many platforms.

Meet The Women In The Walls!!

28367592

Lucy Acosta's mother died when she was three. Growing up in a Victorian mansion in the middle of the woods with her cold, distant father, she explored the dark hallways of the estate with her cousin, Margaret. They're inseparable—a family.
When her aunt Penelope, the only mother she's ever known, tragically disappears while walking in the woods surrounding their estate, Lucy finds herself devastated and alone. Margaret has been spending a lot of time in the attic. She claims she can hear her dead mother's voice whispering from the walls. Emotionally shut out by her father, Lucy watches helplessly as her cousin's sanity slowly unravels. But when she begins hearing voices herself, Lucy finds herself confronting an ancient and deadly legacy that has marked the women in her family for generations.

Who is your favorite character in the book?

Clara Owens.

 

Which came first, the title or the novel?

In this case, the title, although that is the first and only time that's happened to me!

 

What do you like most about the cover of the book?

The font—it's so creepy amazing!

 

What new release book are you looking most forward to in 2016?

It came out in May, but I was really excited for The Fireman by Joe Hill.

 

What was your favorite book in 2015?

It came out in 2014 but I didn't read it until 2015—The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon. It was so awesome!

 

What’s up next for you?

My next book, The Ravenous, is another standalone horror that comes out in 2017. So excited for this one!

 

Which part of the writing process do you enjoy more: Drafting or Revising?

I used to like drafting more, but now I think I'm more fond of making the book better during revisions.

 

What would you say is your superpower?

The power to stretch a grocery budget as far as humanly possible!

Recently I've seen a lot of advertisements for this novel (Props to author/publisher) and the covers been seeming less and less interesting. The synopsis is fine but nothing that blows me away tbh. Hopefully this book will be so amazing it makes up for it. That's why I don't like to judge a book solely on it's cover/synopsis as a book with a beautiful cover can be horribly written and vice versa.

This sounds fantastically creepy. Any story that has part of the setting in the attic is automatically a little more sinister. The cover also projects a decidedly creepy vibe. Well done!

The cover is super creepy but with the allusion to The Yellow Wallpaper[i][/i] (that might just be me) I am hoping there will both phycological and straight up horror!

I'm enthralled by this book. I've seen it on many blogs. The cover is so creeptastic. I'm interested to see what happens with these characters.
