Well hello again!
Welcome back and happy Monday!
It’s time to spotlight another awesome YA author who will be making an appearance at YALL Fest in November!
Today’s interview is with Kami Garcia, co-author of the Beautiful Creatures series and Unbreakable which will release on October 1 and is part of her first solo series. I really enjoyed Beautiful Creatures and the movie was really fun (My Husband even liked it!) so I’m definitely looking forward to having a chance to meet Kami Garcia in November! So, let’s learn a little more about her!
What one thing do you need to have when you write?
I need three things: my laptop, my headphones, and Diet Coke.
Describe your book in 5 words
Paranormal. Ghost-hunting. Intense. Romance. Secret Societies.
Tell us 5 random facts about yourself.
1. I don’t know how to ride a bike. 2. I used to be an artist (a painter). 3. I won’t fly without my huge charm necklace that I believe will keep the plane from crashing. 4. I believe in ghosts. 5. Every time I write a book, I worry that everyone will hate it.
What are you working on now?
I am working on the second book in the Legion Series, the sequel to Unbreakable. Like Unbreakable, the sequel is very intense and has plenty of paranormal elements. But I think it’s even more romantic and surprising than the first book.
What is your favorite genre to write in? To Read?
My favorite genre to write is definitely urban fantasy/paranormal romance. I love to read paranormal, but I am also a huge fan of horror, crime fiction, high fantasy, and science fiction.
I think it’s pretty refreshing to hear someone admit that they’re nervous about putting their work out there for the public to see. It makes sense that authors would worry about everyone hating that piece of art that they poured their time and heart into. It seems like a very vulnerable thing to do and I like that she shared that.
If you’re a YA book lover like me and are in the area, you should come to this year’s YALL Fest in Charleston, SC on Saturday November 9th. I’ll be there and we can fangirl over the authors, like Kami Garcia together!
