A few weeks ago, I got to attend the Breathless Reads tour stop in Frisco. I love nights like this when I get to hang out with my super-awesome blogging friends: Rose, Stacy and Nancy, and Kari!
The lovely authors Beth Revis, Andrea Cremer, Marie Lu and Jessica Spotswood discussed their novels, giving little tidbits of info that we all gobbled up!
Beth Revis, author of Across the Universe and A Million Suns, told us that the first character who dies in AtU was named after a particularly annoying student of hers named Ben. And then many of her students asked her to name murder victims after them once AtU was published, so she complied in A Million Suns!
Andrea Cremer, author of Bloodrose (the third book in the Nightshade trilogy), shared that she tries her hardest to write stories that are brutal but awesome.
Marie Lu, author of Legend, gave us lots of fun trivia about her debut novel. She said that June and Day’s relationship was inspired by Les Miserable. The American Dictator in her story was named after her boyfriend. Oh! And Day has Type O and June has Type AB blood! 🙂
Jessica Spotswood told us that the romantic parts of her stories are her favorite parts to write!
And I just HAD to snap a picture of her CUTE shoes! 🙂
Beth Revis is one of my FAVORITE authors. She even wrote the most awesome guest post ever about the brilliance of Firefly.
It was such a fun and awesome night!
Of course, I HAD to score some extra copies of books to share with you!

Looks like you had a blast! Still heartbroken that Breathless Reads never makes any stops in Canada (heart breaks)
That looks like a lot of fun! I read Legend when it came out last year and loved it! And I read Across the Universe this year and really liked it as well, but I haven’t had a chance to read A Million Suns yet. Thanks for the giveaway!
