Young Adult Author Jesmeen Kaur Deo and One Rule to Finish a Book

Queries, Qualms, & Quirks show

Summary: <p>Young Adult Author Jesmeen Kaur Deo joins Queries, Qualms, &amp; Quirks this week to discuss finding community in fanfiction, inspiration from Richelle Mead, reading Query Shark in high school, having a book die on submission and then having a quick pre-empt sale, advice from Nora Roberts, and finding balance.</p> <p>Jesmeen Kaur Deo grew up in northern British Columbia, where she spent most of her childhood daydreaming. She loves books that can make her laugh and tug at her heartstrings in the same paragraph. When not wrapped up in stories, she can be found biking, playing the harmonium, or struggling to open jars. TJ Powar Has Something to Prove is her debut novel.</p> <p>Jesmeen: <a href="">Query</a> | <a href="">Website</a> | <a href="">Twitter</a> | <a href="">Tumblr</a> | <a href="">Amazon</a> | <a href="">Bookshop</a> | <a href=";rf_code=lfm164099">Libro FM</a></p> <p><a href="">QQQ Home Base</a> |<a href=""> Support on Patreon</a></p> <p><a href=";ouid=117960902139688351428&amp;rtpof=true&amp;sd=true">Read the full transcript.</a></p> <p>If links aren't clickable, find them here: <a href=""></a> </p> <p>This page includes affiliate links.
