Today in The Fort we have Gwen Hayes, author of FALLING UNDER.
FALLING UNDER is one of those books that's been on my TBR for a long, long time, and will be part of my reward for turning in Hourglass Two! One of the most intriguing things about it (besides that cover HELLO) is that the reviewers and fans are keeping the "secret" that's in the book. Every review I read, every tweet I see, says "I won't give away the secret..."
WHAT IS THE SECRET? WHAT KIND OF MOJO DID GWEN WORK ON HER READERS TO MAKE THEM KEEP IT?
So that's why it's part of my reward. Also, Gwen is HILARIOUS on Twitter, and I truly fear if we're ever in the same city that a world takeover would be imminent. Or at least some jail time.
ABOUT FALLING UNDER:
From Gwen: "Thanks for inviting me to the Fort! I brought my unicorn sleeping bag and a tote full of books to read with a flashlight. I'll give one away though, a copy of Falling Under, to a random commenter."
I like croquet. Or vampire baseball.
Sun worshipper, spray tan or SPF 50?
SPF 50 while I worship the sun.
Beach or lake? Boat or shore?
Beach and shore...unless it's a cruise ship. I like cruise ships.
Air conditioning or open windows?
Open windows! Unless there is an escaped convict from the nearby asylum out and about.
Raft or inner tube?
Raft please. I like all my bits out of the water.
High dive, low dive or cannonball?
Gingerly wading in is not on this list. Why is that?
Favorite summer drink?
I like a tall, icy diet Rockstar.
Ghost story or not? Do you remember any favorites from the past?
Okay...the one where you do the Bloody Mary chant in a dark room in front of a mirror has made it impossible for me to enter a dark room with a mirror in it. Still. I FREAK out if I see my reflection in the dark. I'm freaking out now. Somebody hold me.
Truth, or Dare?
Truth. No, dare. No truth.
What singer/musician/band is a must have for The Fort soundtrack?
The song Kermit does on his ukulele is fun campfire song. Rainbow Connection?
What movie would you bring to watch?
Who's the ideal mascot (usually cute boys, or one time, a unicorn, or that other time, Sue Sylvester) for The Fort and why?
Kermit and his ukulele. Why? Just watch. He's adorable. http://www.youtube.
Marshmallows, lightly toasted or burned to a crisp?
Lightly toasted. With chocolate and graham crackers.
Awake all night or first one to sleep?
I do not trust anyone here enough to be the first one asleep.
If awake all night, practical joke or no?
I am fond of the old shaving-cream-on-the-hand-
If you could have any YA author visit The Fort and tell stories, who would it be and what story would you ask them to tell?
Laura Ingalls Wilder. She has some rad stories, she'd know how to handle any scary woods situations we find ourselves in, plus she'd be a ghost. Win!
Thank you muchly for visiting The Fort!!
As Gwen shared above, she's giving away a copy of FALLING UNDER to a commenter (US OR CANADA ONLY)! I'll announce the winner next week!
