ABOUT THE BOOK:

Seventeen-year-old Javon Allen is in love with his best friend, Billie Rose, but she’s dating one of the most popular guys in school. Locked in the dreaded friend-zone, he begins to date someone new--in hopes of curing his craving heart. 

Then Billie drops a bomb that shatters his world. She’s moving cross-country. Although devastated, Javon throws her a surprise going away party. But when Javon buys Billie a diamond bracelet with the help of his mother, his girlfriend throws a tantrum, and Billie confides to Javon that her boyfriend broke up with her. 

Despite Javon’s girlfriend’s outrage, he keeps in touch with Billie. Then, his girlfriend gives him an ultimatum. He must choose between his sprouting relationship or the girl he’s always loved. He makes the obvious choice. Billie. But he discovers that she has found someone new. Now he wonders if he should let go of the girl of his dreams or fight to win her heart?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Skylar grew in Upstate New York.  There is where her imagination took flight. Every week her third-grade class had a writing competition. She lost the first one but won every contest afterward. As time continued, her characters developed, taking on a life of their own in the worlds she created.

She currently writes young adult, new adult and contemporary romance. When she isn't busy creating her next love story, she enjoys spending time with her family, reading, and listening to music.

She now resides in a small town with her family, where her love for creating characters and stories envelop her thoughts, allowing her to continue in her writing journey.

THE INTERVIEW:

  1.       What gave you the inspiration to write this book?

I have always loved reading Young Adult Romance books and watching Young Adult shows. It almost came natural to write one.

  1.       Who is your favorite character in the book?

Javon is my favorite character because he is so sweet and forgiving. He's a hopeless romantic.

Short excerpt:

She squeezed me tighter. "I need you," said Billie.

Billie was doing things to my heart that no one else could. It was something I tried to put an end to so many times.

I peered into her eyes--her soul. "I need you too." I needed her more than she could ever imagine.

  1.       Which came first, the title or the novel?

The novel came first. As I was typing, I came up with the title.

  1.       What scene in the book are you most proud of, and why?

I don't want to give too much away, but one of my favorite scenes is when Billie has a realization. I am proud of it because many people may feel the same way she did, but they gain insight along the way.

  1.       Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you've learned as a writer from then to now?

There is a reader for every genre and style. You just have to find them.

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

I love that it depicts the feelings that characters have for one another.

  1.       What’s up next for you?

I am currently working on a Contemporary romance. A story about forbidden love. I also have plans to write more Young Adult Romances in the future.

  1.     Which was the most difficult or emotional scene to narrate? 

The most emotional scene to narrate was the scene when Billie is moving away. Javon and Billie do not want to release one another from their tight embrace, but they realize they have to.

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

I enjoy drafting more than revising, especially writing the first draft. I'm so free when I write the first draft. I write whatever I'm feeling at the time.

  1.       What would you say is your superpower?

Persistance is my superpower. If I don't succeed, I continue to try. Never give up!
