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
Was it easier to write book two of the series than book one? How so or not so?
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.
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. 🙂
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!
such an awesome town. Ancient and modern all at once. (The boys with
cute accents don’t hurt, either.)

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.
