Tiffany Pitcock

Benton, AR


24. Writer. Reader. Sarcastic.
I was born and raised in Arkansas, which isn't terribly exciting. I've wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I used to sit in class and write stories in my notebooks, thinking that everyone did. It turns out, everyone didn't. I love writing because it means I'm putting my thoughts, feelings, and soul out there for someone else to read - for someone else to feel. The fact that someone can read my words, and empathize with my characters - characters that wouldn't exist with out me, that I created from my mind - is such a wonderful concept to me. I could happily write for the rest of my life as long as there was one person out there who was affected by my words.

Favorite Quotes

“I just thought to my self, all of a sudden, that we had something in common. A natural chemistry, if you will. And I had a feeling that something big was going to happen. To both of us. That we were, in fact, meant to be together.” - Dexter, This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen

Swoon Author Tiffany Pitcock: The Writing Process and Hands-On Editing

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’ve never been a big fan of editing. One reason is that it feels like getting scolded (though I understand that’s not what is happening). Seriously, give me a first draft any day. The other reason is that I’m a hands-on person. I can’t read a word document (or an ebook for that matter). … Read More

Swoon Author Tiffany Pitcock: Publishing Confessional – Promotion and Anxiety

I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was eight years old. I still remember being in Mrs. Ireland’s third-grade class, writing stories in my notebook instead of learning my multiplication tables. I remember promising my best friend Kasey I’d dedicate my first book to her (which sixteen years later I did). I was prepared. I knew what I was … Read More

Swoon Author Tiffany Pitcock's Editing Update: From Fear to Freedom

I have a confession to make, one that shames me as both an author and an English major: I hate editing. I hate reading my own writing. I hate having my mistakes pointed out to me. You know that college senior meme that says “Rough draft? You mean final draft”? That was me up until I started working with Swoon … Read More

And the winning cover for JUST FRIENDS is...

Over the past week of cover voting, I had many people ask me which cover was my favorite. No one seemed to believe me when I said all of them. “Come on,” they said, “There has to be one you’d prefer over the others.” But there wasn’t. I was in love with them all. My favorite was whichever I was … Read More
