We have Lyssa Chiavari today on the blog to share a bit about her new release, Cheerleaders from Planet X! This is a fun and refreshing take in SciFi where cheerleaders fight aliens (I know, what a great idea). I’m sure many readers will love this book as much as I did when it comes out later this month.
Q1: Cheerleaders from Planet X has such an original story! Can you tell us a bit about where this idea came from?
I know it sounds trite, but it actually came from a dream I had! A loooot of my short stories have come from dreams, but this was the first full novel I’ve written that stemmed directly from a dream. It seems like a lot of times my subconscious is working out for me what I should write next, because I always know when I wake up when something’s meant to be written down rather than just being an ordinary dream. In the case of Cheerleaders, I woke up and immediately wrote the first two chapters in a frenzy. I don’t think I ever could have come up with such an off-the-wall premise consciously!
