Our #atbf12 lineup and more
Last month we posted about the awesomeness of Austin Teen Book Festival and how you can bet your signed copy of Twilight that we would be there with our cameras rolling. And by camera’s rolling, we mean we’re going on an interviewing spree.
Just who will be in front of our cameras? What shenanigans will take place? Just take a look at the epicness to come:
Rachel Harris, author of My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century (MSSSC #1) – While Rachel is not part of ATBF, we are podcasting with her about her book, which is one of the most fun and imaginative books we’ve read in a long time. It’s such a romp of a read that we suggest you download it now. Plus, the romance is so hot it sizzles. We hope Rachel is prepared for us.
Jessica Khoury, author of Origin – We’re super pumped to talk with this super fun Breathless Reads author. Jessica has won us over with her beautiful lush setting and her free thinking genetically engineered heroine and her ability to write a compelling sci-fi standalone.
Leigh Bardugo, author of Shadow and Bone (The Grisha #1) – That’s right people we’re already drooling that we get to talk and rub elbows with the very lady who gave us Alina and the Darkling. Cue sappy happy music now. Hmmm, wonder if she’ll give us free make-up advice?
Rae Carson, author of The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns #2) – Y’ALL. Is this real life? We’re telling you, Rae’s second book in Fire and Thorns series blew us away. Literally. We’re still thinking about Elisa, Hector and that perilous journey. This is possible the best book of the year.
Carolee Dean, author of Forget Me Not – Okay, so we aren’t interviewing Carolee (we’ve did interview her before and you can watch it here), and she is not part of ATBF either, but we are filming something pretty excitingly fun that you will not want to miss. This video will highlight Forget Me Not, as well as our acting chops.
E. Kristin Anderson, editor and contributor of Dear Teen Me – E. is not part of the ATBF tour either, but she will be at the festival and we’re talking with her about her anthology. This book of authors writing letters to their teen selves just rocks. Seriously, we’re taking notes as we read. We go way back with our friendship with E. Kristin (two years is a long time, right?) so expect a high shenanigans level.
Libba Bray, author of The Diviners (plus countless other great books) – We’re co-hosting this interview with Katie from Mundie Moms and are still in shock we get to talk to THE LIBBA BRAY. LIBBA BRAY. We’re pinching ourselves and taking cleansing breathes until we meet her.
Make sure and watch out for these great interviews on the blog, or subscribe to our YouTube channel for the latest updates.
ATBF and more FTW.
