Blog Tour: Demonglass (Hex Hall, #2) by Rachel Hawkins and Giveaway

Today I have the lovely pleasure of having YA author Rachel Hawkins to answer just a few interview questions! I kept it short and sweet and asked what I wanted to know. I’m not a fan of most general interview questions so I hope you find these interesting, at least. :)

Rachel Hawkins Interview

 

About the book:
Was it easier to write book two of the series than book one? How so or not so?

Oh, no, haha! Book 2 was MUCH harder! I think it’s because in HEX
HALL, I was just writing with no expectations, no readers, just for my
own amusement. With DEMONGLASS, I knew I’d have LOTS of readers, and I
really, really didn’t want to let them down. Also, in the 2nd book of
a trilogy, you have to wrap up some plot threads, leave some for book
3, introduce NEW plot threads….yeah, sequels are a lot of work!

How do you feel about your book covers? (I think they’re great!)

 

 

 

I ADORE them! I’m so thrilled with how Hyperion really nailed the
whole, “These books are funny! But also scary! And yet funny!” aspect
of the series. Also, I want all of Cover Sophie’s outfits.

When will book three be available? And is it the last book of the series?

Book 3 will be out in Spring 2012, and it is the last of Sophie’s
adventures! However, I’m working on a spin-off set in the HEX HALL
universe, so I’m not totally done playing in that world yet. :)

Miscellaneous Facts:

Which do you prefer: warm, sunny day or cool, rainy day? And why?

Cool, rainy days! Sadly, I live in the South, and while rain is not so
hard to come by, cool often is! I think I dig rainy, cool weather so
much because I am so very indoorsy. Cold+rain= the perfect excuse to
stay inside and read and write!

If you could live anywhere where would that be? Why?
London. See above, RE: Cool and rainy. :) Seriously though, it’s just
such an awesome town. Ancient and modern all at once. (The boys with
cute accents don’t hurt, either.)
Thanks so much Rachel! I’m excited to hear about a spin off series.

I haven’t started my review copy of Demonglass yet, and I apologize for not having a review to go along with this blog tour but I’ve been in the worst funk lately. I’m blaming the pregnancy hormones. :( I plan to start it very soon and have a review up just as soon as I do finish it.
