Hey, everyone, and welcome to our stop on the “When the World Was Flat (and we were in love)”! Today we have an interview with author Ingrid Jonach on writing a multiverse book and more. I enjoyed doing this interview as I enjoyed the book, so I hope you guys do too.

Okay. Enough delay. Time to find out Jonach’s answers to Usagi’s questions about this book! We tried to keep them as non-spoilery as possible, but just in case, you might want to wait to read this until after you finish the book.
A few days ago, I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down in person with William Richter, author of the “Dark Eyes” series and all around awesome guy for an interview about a whole lot of stuff. I’ve tried to keep the questions as spoiler-free as possible concerning the “Dark Eyes” series, but I think you guys will find his answers just as interesting as I did. If you haven’t already started the “Dark Eyes” series – what are you waiting for? It second book, “Tiger” just hit shelves last week, and if you check out my reviews for both books in the review archive, you’ll see why I loved it just as much as the first.
Anyway, find out more about this author and his opinions and processes after the jump!
Hey, everyone, and welcome to my tour stop on the Triple Threat Blog Tour for “Dance of Shadows”! Today, we’re talking to author Yelena Black about her influences when writing her debut, as well as the dance world in general and a whole lot more. So pull up a seat and get the popcorn, because these answers are quite interesting. I tried to keep this as spoiler free as possible, but there still might be one or two in there – you’ve been warned! Now, see how Black answers after the jump!
Hey, everyone! Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Gennifer Albin’s “Crewel”, Redux! I was able to get an interview out of her about her life post-publication, and how it may or may not have changed. Remember, the “Crewel” ebook is on sale right now through all e-outlets through February 12th (Tuesday), so if you haven’t bought and read it already, what are you waiting for! You can get more information on this smokin’ hot deal here!
Now, presenting: Gennifer Albin on life post-pub after the jump!
It’s no secret that I totally adored friend of the blog Chris Howard’s debut YA effort, “Rootless”, and all of the story and imagery contained therein. So when he accepted my request for an interview, I was pretty excited to pick his brains on so much stuff. See what that stuff is under the jump!
Today we’re talking to Wesley King, author of “The Vindico”. The superhero genre in YA/MG is starting to come back big time, so I decided to talk to him about that, “The Vindico”, and more in our (long overdue) conversation/interview.
No spoilers in this interview, so have no fear. See what King has to say about a whole lot of things after the jump!
Hey, everyone, and welcome to my stop on the “Promised” blog tour! Today we’re having a conversation/interview with author Caragh O’Brien on the the “Birthmarked” trilogy, reproductive rights in YA lit, and more.
This is a very interesting trilogy, and quite exciting for the YA dystopian genre, and it’s definitely one of my favorites of the genre so far. There might be some spoilers in this conversation/interview, so if you haven’t read the book and don’t want to be spoiled you might want to read this after you’ve read the book.
Hello, and welcome to your next tour stop for the “Throne of Glass” blog tour! I’m your host, Usagi, and today we’re talking to the lovely and awesome author, Sarah J. Maas, about the creation of the book, the advent of Celaena, and more!
I was lucky enough to meet the author at ALA (Sarah is one of the most gracious authors I’ve ever met, for serious), and for those who haven’t read the book yet – what are you waiting for? Caution, there may be a few spoilers ahead in this interview, but we tried to keep it as spoiler-free as possible.
So, let’s go into Sarah’s head as she tells us about the birth of the “Throne of Glass” series, right beyond the jump!
It’s no secret that I love YA novels with paranormal elements that surprise me. Very rarely do we get books about things like astral projection and other rare paranormal practices (or beings), so when I heard about “Auracle”, I had to read it just because of its mention of astral projection as a major plot element alone.
After finishing Gina Rosati’s debut effort, I had a ton of questions left over. Rosati was gracious enough to answer my questions about the novel, its possible future, and more. You can find the answers under the jump. Warning – this may be a teeny bit spoilery, so if you do read it and you haven’t read the book yet, you might get spoiled. You can read my review of the book here.
After finishing Winters’ newest (and in my opinion, best) novel, “The Last Policeman”, I had a ton of questions left over. Luckily, Quirk Books connected us, and so I got my questions answered.
“The Last Policeman” is a very interesting mix of apocalyptica, murder mystery, and a possible rising dystopia and asks us a very important existential question – “If the world were about to end, does investigating a maybe-murder really rank on things that should be done?”. So I asked Ben more about the book, his process, and what we can expect from the next two books in the series behind the jump. Definitely recommended reading – it was AWESOME, you guys. You can read my complete thoughts on the book in my review of the book here.
And now, without further ado…
