Stacey T. Hunt

Biography

Stacey T. Hunt is a teen who writes novels for teens (and for adults who aren't afraid to admit that teen books are superior). She is a Canadian tomboy, a YA writer, a video-gaming/anime-loving geek, dubstep music listener/lover, and she loves reading, creating digital art and drawings, and most of all, writing. Unfortunately, she does not have any amazing abilities like her characters. Unless you count her ability to watch anime for hours on end.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
My writing process continues to change and adapt as I grow more confident in my ability to actually write an entire novel. (I'm only 18 and I already have ten published novels in the world! Some days I still can’t believe it!) I’m learning to trust my writer instincts. I’ve become more familiar with my own creative needs and am learning to recognize, for example, the difference between letting an idea simmer for a while longer vs. straight-up procrastination.
Each book comes with unique challenges that can change how I approach it. But the basic structure of my process, from that first spark of an idea to turning in a completed manuscript, doesn’t seem to vary a whole lot:

1. Brainstorming & Research
2. The Outline
3. The First Draft
4. Simmering Periods
5. The Second Draft
6. Revisions
7. Beta Readers & Final Revisions
8. Tweaking & Polishing
9. The Publisher’s Editorial Process
What's the story behind your latest book?
Game of Nightmares, my new horror/YA standalone novel, which will be out on September 13, 2015.
A series of unexplained deaths has the entire city of Albany on edge. Otherwise normal, healthy seventeen year olds have been discovered dead in their beds with expressions of extreme terror or agony on their faces. At the same time, a strange rumor has been circulating that if someone falls in their dreams, and doesn’t wake up before landing, they’ll die in real life.
Sleep; That's all the teenagers in this book want, really.

Smashwords book reviews by Stacey T. Hunt

  • Genation 1: Earth Volk on Oct. 27, 2013

    I loved this book, and I definitely recommend it! I think the biggest thing that drew me to this book was the cover. The science that he created was new and different and I really enjoyed how he explained everything. The characters, I thought, were well written and had very diverse personalities. I liked the plot, the story, and even the bad guys. I wasn't disappointed in reading this novel.
