Spring #IntoTheFuture Houston Recap! Interview+Pictures+Giveaway



HI!!!!  Today we recap the super fun event that came to Houston for Spring Into The Future. The event was April 25th at Blue Willow Bookshop. We had authors Taherah Mafi and Veronica Rossi visit. Taherah is the author of Shatter Me and Veronica is the author of Under the Never Sky. Both books are debut books for each authors and are planned trilogies. 

I did get to hang out with the authors before the event but was able to conduct the interview at that time. See Veronica's luggage had been lost and she had just arrived a few minutes before it was time to head to Blue Willow. But don't fear, the lovely ladies, did stay after the event and we did a impromptu interview right outside Blue Willow. I took a few pictures during the event as well. I hope you followed me on twitter that night and read all the juicy details about their books and future books. Here are a few tweets I posted:

They were asked what is harder to write the first or sequel?
@TaherehMafi deadline is huge and shutting voices when.writing sequel is hard because she feels the need to please the fan
@V_Rossibooks says its the sequel. the deadline is the killer. no luxury to day dream

They were asked if they had to cut any scenes from their books
@V_Rossibooks did have to delete scenes but feels nothing was left out
@TaherehMafi actually had to add scenes

This event was jam packet and so much fun. These lovely authors will crack you up. The crowd had great questions for them and they had great answers right back. They both got to sign the walls of Blue Willow.


Here is our impromptu interview that Taherah and Veronica did outside of Blue Willow Bookshop. Enjoy!

  2. I wish this tour was visiting somewhere near me! I think a sequel would be more difficult to write; more pressure.
