Amy Trueblood grew up in California only ten minutes from Disneyland which sparked an early interest in storytelling. As the youngest of five, she spent most of her time trying to find a quiet place to curl up with her favorite books. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in journalism, she worked in entertainment in Los Angeles before returning to work in Arizona.

Fueled by good coffee and an awesome Spotify playlist, you can often find Amy blogging and writing. Nothing But Sky, a 2018 Junior Library Guild selection, is her first novel.

There is nothing better than having a small nugget of an idea and slowly letting it build until it is a full blown story. It's amazing to me how something so small can build into something beautiful.

NAVIGATING PUBLISHING: BREAKING YOUR BRAND

 


 



 


 


I spent time recently with a good author friend, and as always, the conversation turned to the ups and downs of publishing. One of the topics that came up was the need to build an author “brand”. We talked about what makes your individual writing unique and how we hope when readers see our names on the cover of books they know what they’re getting.


But here’s the funny thing about this conv...
