It’s a wrap! Chevy Stevens’ E-VENTFUL Book Party celebrating the paperback release of her hit book Still Missing was tons of fun! The turnout was great (as always), some truly interesting questions were asked, and ten lucky attendees walked away with some killer gifts! Chevy spent over an hour with our readers answering questions and sharing stories…it was a true delight for all involved.

enamoredsoul: Thank you ECOSYSTEM and MISTY RIDGE COFFEE ROASTING!
enamoredsoul: and of course, CONGRATS author Stevens!
Ken Woychesko: Thanks to the sponsors and Hiya Chevy!
Tammy Johnson Berbells: Thanks to Chevy and the wonderful sponsors
teresasreading: Vancouver is beautiful. Its been awhile since I was there. I lived in Massett for awhile.
ChevyStevens: Hi, thanks for the congrats and for having me here today!
sagustocox: Hello Chevy, what a powerful book. How long did it take you to write it?
James Martinez: Hello
carolina: Hey Chevy what an honor to be her with you today!
ChevyStevens: It took me about four years before I had a contract with my publishers, and then another few months of rewrites.
Kathryn Poulin: Hi Chevy, congrats on the paperback release today.
Paperbackdolls: Hi Chevy! Thanks for taking the time to do this.
Tammy Johnson Berbells: I haven’t read a book this good in long time…I was hooked from beginning to end!
songberries: I really enjoyed your book, couldn’t put it down!
denisecrawford: Checking in to say that I found Still Missing to be one of the best thrillers I’ve read and reviewed in ages. I recommend it to everyone who likes that genre!
cindij: Chevy, do you use outlines for your novels?
ChevyStevens: I use outlines now, but I didn’t with STILL MISSING. That book unfolded organically, which made for many rewrites!
Colleen Turner: The book sounds powerful! What is your favorite part of the book writing process? Do you enjoy research, writing and development, the process of marketing and “meeting” readers once the book is published?
Susan Smoaks: yes great book
ChevyStevens: I enjoy each process for different reasons. I enjoy the creative brainstorming part, I love researching, and then later I get to chat to fans! So there’s not much I don’t like!
sagustocox: that is a long time did you ever feel anxious or like you wanted to give up in all that time?
thebookfetish: I have a realtor friend that I have just now given permission to read the book. Didn’t want to freak her out at the next open house.
ChevyStevens: Never like I wanted to give it up. I’m way too determined for that, plus, you know, I’d already told everyone I was writing a book and I have lots of pride But there were times I was starting to wonder if I was every going to be finished.
Kathryn Poulin: Are you from British Columbia? I live in the Vancouver area. It is the most beautiful place on Earth!
JAGed Otter: What have you learned from writing your book that you think aspiring writers should know?
ChevyStevens: I live on Vancouver Island. I’ll wave across the water
songberries: Chevy, I hope you have another book in the works?
BookTrib: hevy’s second novel, NEVER KNOWING, will be on sale in July! Visit her website for more information http://chevystevens.com.
ChevyStevens: I think you need to be really committed to the process, be telling a story you believe in, and most of all, need to learn how to evaluate feedback.
enamoredsoul: I’ve been hearing nothing but RAVES about the book – cannot wait to read it, sounds like such a riveting read!
denisecrawford: I’m hoping it will be optioned for a movie!
ChevyStevens: Yes, I am working on my third book right now.
Leanne Gagnon: Hi!!!
Paperbackdolls: Hi Chevey, What prompted you to tell the story through sessions?
ChevyStevens: STILL MISSING has been optioned for a movie. In fact, one of the head writers for “Dexter” is working on the script right now.
Tammy Johnson Berbells: I now want to get my hands on the other book you have written…is it out already or will it be coming out soon?
sara townsend: A few minutes in and I’ve already requested a copy from my library!
ChevyStevens: The idea of having sessions instead of chapters just came to me. When I first heard Annie’s voice in my mind, she was telling the story to her therapist.
BookTrib: Chevy’s second novel, NEVER KNOWING, will be on sale in July! Visit her website for more information http://chevystevens.com.
Andrew Masi: what made u decide to write a book like this one?
Kathryn Poulin: Waving back!
Colleen Turner: Thank you Ecosystem and Misty Ridge !
Leanne Gagnon: Hello from NB Canada
Paperbackdolls: Congratulations on the movie option.
Martha Davis: Dexter writer ans this story sounds like a good combination
Mary Meyer Johnson: Congratulations! I live Dexter – your script is in good hands.
Susan Smoaks: yes i will have to get a copy from the library too
denisecrawford: That’s great about the movie, I am definitely eager to see that.
ChevyStevens: It’s just the story to came to me. It didn’t really feel like a choice, more of a calling.
teresasreading: I see on your website that the book has been optioned for a movie. Do you think that will come to fruition?
connie527: Lookign forward to reading it
laura lanham: hell-o to everyone..Am glad to join the party to honor Chevy Stevens.
Jim Wiesner: Getting in late, but want to say Still missing was a very good book.
thebookfetish: I think the story being told in sessions gives an authenticity to the experience- It gives you the story from Annie’s perspective, but also gives you just a hint of detachment. I’m not sure that statement makes sense, but it is like listening to the story, rather than living it.
Kathryn Poulin: Awesome news about Still Missing being optioned for a movie. Just read the write up on your next novel Never Knowing…sounds fascinating!
denisecrawford: I have also read and reviewed the ARC of Never Knowing.
JAGed Otter: If you could cast the movie yourself, who would play Annie?
ChevyStevens: Movies are a long process, but hopefully, yes.
carolina: How did you come up with the idea for the book? Whatever it was it was incredible!
Jim Wiesner: Still Missing had such a suprise ending!
teresasreading: I’ve heard a lot of authors say that their stories just come to them. I find that so interesting. I’d love to be able to write, but I’m not hearing anything hanging out waiting to be said.
quixoticweetzie: Looking forward to reading it as well (Hello by the way)
cindij: Speaking of rewrites, how do you approach them? Do you start from the beginning and go through the MS again or have someone else read it and make suggestions?
sagustocox: how much of annie is based on your or someone you know or knew
ChevyStevens: I’m back! Sorry got kicked out ):
elevenpages: Can you tell us about how the book got its cover? Do you like it?
ChevyStevens: It depends at what stage of editing I’m in. Usually, yes, I work from the front of the book and go forward.
Sheila Korman: Great news about the movie option—congrats!
Jim Wiesner: Can’t wait for the new book coming out in July, I already know it will be quite the story!
ChevyStevens: Annie isn’t based on anyone I know, but I used a lot of my own emotions and feelings with her.
ChevyStevens: The cover went through a few designs, actually. Over a couple of months. And this is the one we all fell in love with. I’m luck in the fact that my publishers consult with me. I do love it!
Jeffrey Tretin: Does your editor see the book before the first draft is finished?
MSRheinlander: I really like the cover!!
regulus57: Hi, Chevy and all
Ken Woychesko: It *is* an amazing story–one of those that grips you from the opening
Jim Wiesner: I just love all your twists and turns in your writing.
ChevyStevens: No, my editor doesn’t read the book until I have finished it. And also until I’ve had feedback from other people. Basically, I make sure it’s the best it can be before I even hand it in.
Lisa Amos Evans: How much input did you have in chosing the narrator for the audio version?
Tammy Johnson Berbells: Annie was so strong…to keep going day after day was amazing. I honestly don’t know what I would of done…my stomach was in knots reading her experiences.
Susan Stenvog: Glad to be at the party! enjoying it very much.
ChevyStevens: Hi Lisa, I didn’t have any input. Brilliance Audio have narrators that they work with.
kdurham2: Hello – thanks for the book party. Chevy – did you do anything different in your writing process between book 1 and book 2?
connie527: Very interesting
Sheila Korman: It’s great that you were involved in the cover choice! Unfortunately, it sometimes is the cover that can make or break a book.
ChevyStevens: Yes, on book two I had an outline, and I did far more research up front. With book three I’ve done even more research and my outline was in a lot more detail.
Debbie Whittemore: Listening to Chevy talk about the book is so interesting. Can’t wait to read it!
ChevyStevens: Yes, the cover is a very important part of the process.
enamoredsoul: Author Stevens, what has been your favorite part about writing this book? And what has been your biggest trial? Also, what advice would you give to aspiring authors?
Tammy Johnson Berbells: Debbie…it’s so good…be sure you have several hours to read because you won’t want to put it down!
BookTrib: Hi everyone – Here is the link to buy the paperback version of STILL MISSING!
Susan Smoaks: oh cool, thanks for the link, going to buy it now
Cathie Veres: What is your favorite book?
JAGed Otter: If you could cast the movie, who would play Annie?
ChevyStevens: My favorite part was just the whole process of learning and really going for my dream. The biggest trial has been trying to juggle the marketing part with the writing, and my advice for aspiring authors is to really give it everything you have. If you want it, then you have to be willing to sacrifice and dedicate yourself to learning the craft and be willing to learn and grow and take feedback.
Andrew Masi: did u always wanted 2 be a writer?
ChevyStevens: Natalie Portman would make a great Annie
Lynn Hayne: How much input do you have in the screenwriting?
MSRheinlander: I really like hearing other get excited over a book… it is contagious!!
ChevyStevens: My favorite book? Hmm. I have a few. THE LOVELY BONES and the POWER OF ONE are two.
JAGed Otter: How did you find an agent?
ChevyStevens: I don’t have input in the script for the movie.
enamoredsoul: Thank you so much, author Stevens for answering my questions. And thank you to the moderators for putting up with my constant barrage of comments/questions!
Denise Zaky: I watched the video prior to signing on and have to say this book sound chilling and exciting. Not having read the book yet, I look forward to doing so. Do you feel in writing about such a significant issue there will be “moral
Connie Bryant: Does any tv shows,music or other books inspire you to write?
ChevyStevens: I worked with a freelance editor and she had a connection with my agent. She believed in my book, so she asked him to read it. He signed me four days later.
ChevyStevens: Certain music or a really great movie will put me in the mood to write, yest.
Julie Smith: I have Never Knowing in my review pile right now .. can’t wait to read it .. love that Still Missing is coming out in paperback – it was an awesome read as well!
beckyl: Have the ideas for your second and third books come to you as easily as Still Missing seems to have?
Chris Weiss: I agree about the contagiousness of others’ excitement
enamoredsoul: “I hate them for not being in pain like me, hate them for being able to enjoy themselves. Hate myself for feeling that way.” This quote makes me want to simply hug Annie. I love when authors create characters we become SO invested in!
MSRheinlander: That is awesome that you were signed like that… it was meant to be!
Kathryn Poulin: Agree – Natalie Portman would be perfect.
dollycas: this is so cool, the book has been on my wish list and now I want it right now!
ChevyStevens: The second and third were a different experience because I was working out the plot before writing. The premise for SM came to me quickly, but it took years to really work out the plot.
myoldkyhome: How much time did you spend doing research for the book?
Beverly Fuller: What category would you put your book into?
teresasreading: As a reader I like to be able to identify with the characters. Is this difficult for an authro to do.
ChevyStevens: Thanks enamored soul :0
ChevyStevens: I spent a fair bit of time on research, but as I write I find new things I have to look up. With my third book, I spent a lot of time researching ahead of time, but there’s still more coming up.
TokyoSuperFrog: Love your intro video for the party Chevy!
Lisa Richardson: I can’t wait to read this book.
metwallyhoda: so many books have lost their identities when they’re turned into movies. are you concerned about that at all?
ChevyStevens: My novel is in the thriller genre.
Chris Weiss: The video is a great idea and has sold me on getting the book – can’t wait to read it
enamoredsoul: I also read an excerpt of “Not Knowing” on the MacMillan site earlier today, and simply LOVED it. Cannot wait to read “Still Missing”, and “Not Knowing” – but I feel like I’m a fan already!
James Martinez: Do you get to have more influence on the movie’s script other than what is in your book?
ChevyStevens: Well, I believe that the movie producers will have their own creative ideas for the book. Of course, I would be upset of the movie wasn’t good! But, it’s outside of my control and I try to focus on what’s in my power to change.
MSRheinlander: I just purchased it on Amazon for my Kindle : )
Susan Stenvog: Thrillers are my favorites to read; can’t wait to read this book!
carolina: Who are some of your favorite authors?
ChevyStevens: No, I do not have input on the script, that I’m aware of anyway.
ChevyStevens: Thanks Tokyosuperfrog. It’s just a little something I put together…lol
Barry Huddleston: Nice video
Audrey Larson: I just read “Never Knowing,” and must say it was a very intense, gripping book that I just couldn’t put down!
ChevyStevens: I like lots of different authors, like Stephen King, Alice Sebold, Pat Conroy, Bryce Courtenay, Chevy Stevens \
Joanne Lawrence Reynolds: Are you confident with what you submit, or do you have numerous other people read before you submit to a publisher?
ChevyStevens: Glad you liked it Audrey!
Julie Smith: Steven King was one of my first reading loves!
Tammy Johnson Berbells: I love that you added yourself to your favorite author list…I have added you to mine
ChevyStevens: I always have other people read my work. I feel it’s impossible to catch all your mistakes and we only look at things from one perspective.
Ken Woychesko: Were you tempted write the movie adaptation for STILL MISSING yourself? Are you nervous at all about how the screenwriter will handle your work?
Debbie Whittemore: I will be adding Chevy to my favorite author list, too!
Eleanor Jethro: I haven’t read any of your books yet, but after reading these comments I will have to go and get 1 of them
ChevyStevens: I was not tempted to do write the script as it’s an art form in itself. I was happy to be working on my second book and leave the script to the pros.
sagustocox: what are the second and third books about? Are they in a similar genre or about real estate agents?
enamoredsoul: Eleanor, why just get one? get BOTH – I plan on reading both. They both seem to have an incredibly interesting premise, very engaging characters, and plots that will keep you awake ALL night, thinking!
ChevyStevens: They are similar in the fact that the second one is also told in sessions to the same therapist and the third book is the therapist’s story.
Eleanor Jethro: will have to get both of them. just logged in so missed alot of the conversations
Joanne Reynolds: Chevy, How long do you see yourself writing for? Do you feel that you have many books in your mind that need to be written?
Susan Smoaks: joanne good question!
ChevyStevens: Hopefully for the rest of my life!
denisecrawford: Do you read reviews of your books when they are in ARC form and does it ever cause you to change anything about your novels?
ChevyStevens: Yes, I do feel there are more stories and feelings that I want to share. Getting me to shut up is usually the problem
thebookfetish: the last line in Still Missing has stayed with me since I read it- was that a line that was there from the beginning of the writing process, or something that came to you through editing?
ChevyStevens: I do read some reviews, but it doesn’t make me change anything storywise. They aren’t made from final proofs, so there are small errors sometimes. If someone catches one that I haven’t already caught, then I will change that. But not story content.
kdurham2: Did you do any writing before you wrote this book?
ChevyStevens: The last line came later through rewrites.
ChevyStevens: Just in high school and sometimes in a journal. Or some very nice real estate ads!
Gary Ingraham: Hi Chevy. I read both Still Missing and your next novel, Never knowing (ARC). I noticed many similarities, especially regarding family relationships, and I’m wondering how much of your personal family history goes into character development.
ChevyStevens: I don’t base my stories on real people, but I do channel my emotions into my stories.
elevenpages: How do you feel about e-books?
lauriet69: I have just started reading Still Missing and I am actually having trouble….I have already connected with Annie and I have this sick feeling in my stomach because I know what is going to happen!
ChevyStevens: I don’t personally have an e-reader and I like collecting books, but whatever gets people reading is a good thing!
Sheila Korman: You should be very proud of your accomplishment—writing a book, having it accepted, going through the agony of the editing process, and finally seeing it published is such a long process. Who would you say has been your strongest supporter through the whole thing—a particular family member, a friend, your editor?
ChevyStevens: I have been lucky to have support from many people in my life, my aunt, my husband, my agent, my editor, my dog
teresasreading: Is there a book on your bookshelf that we’d be surprised by?
teresasreading: dogs are great supporters.
BookTrib: Great questions everyone! Remember to pick up the paperback version of STILL MISSING at your local bookstore or at Amazon
BookTrib: And look for Chevy’s next novel out this July!
connie527: Can’t wait
ChevyStevens: The Dirt, Motley Crue
Chris Weiss: Do you have any input about when your book comes out as a paperback or ebook?
teresasreading: will absolutely be looking for both of them.
Kathryn Poulin: Looking forward to the next novel! Thanks for the book party Chevy!
connie527: Love the Crue
dollycas: I don’t have an e-reader yet either, I love to share my books and they look so pretty on the shelves and easy to grab if I want to read them again.
ChevyStevens: No, those are decisions that the publishers make.
cindij: Chevy, congratulations on your Arthur Ellis nomination and Thriller Fest! Can you think of one resource that helped you as a writer the most?
ChevyStevens: The book “Self editing for Fiction Writers” by Renni Browne, then I also hired Renni to give me feedback. Learned SO much from her.
songberries: Thanks for spending this time with us! I look forward to reading more of your books!
sagustocox: When naming your characters, did you have several different names in mind (particularly for Annie and the daughter?)
ChevyStevens: And thanks for the congrats!
metwallyhoda: this was so much fun!
ChevyStevens: “Annie” was always Annie, and so named after my dog.
Susan Stenvog: This was my first book party and so interesting!
Barry Huddleston: This was pretty cool
Susan Smoaks: yes this was a lot of fun!
Jim Wiesner: Well something happened and my comments did not get posted, but I did say that I love all your twists and turns in your book and the suprise ending, looking forward to buying your next book in July.
Tia Knox: Have any realtors contacted you with stories of things that have happened to them?
