One Wish with Elana Johnson GCC Interview


Welcome to the Girlfriend's Cyber Circuit, a  web ring of YA authors dedicated to bringing you the latest news about YA releases and interviews with the fabulous people responsible for them.

I'm honored to be a new member, and look forward to hosting all the members here. Today I welcome Elana Johnson to the blog! 



SURRENDER 


Raine has always been a good girl. She lives by the rules in Freedom. After all, they are her father’s rules: He’s the Director. It’s because of him that Raine is willing to use her talent—a power so dangerous, no one else is allowed to know about it. Not even her roommate, Vi.
All of that changes when Raine falls for Gunner. Raine’s got every reason in the world to stay away from Gunn, but she just can’t. Especially when she discovers his connection to Vi’s boyfriend, Zenn.

Raine has never known anyone as heavily brainwashed as Vi. Raine’s father expects her to spy on Vi and report back to him. But Raine is beginning to wonder what Vi knows that her father is so anxious to keep hidden, and what might happen if she helps Vi remember it. She’s even starting to suspect Vi’s secrets might involve Freedom’s newest prisoner, the rebel Jag Barque….



ELANA JOHNSON


Elana's work including POSSESSION, REGRET, and SURRENDER is available from Simon & Schuster wherever books are sold. She is the author of From the Query to the Call, an ebook that every writer needs to read before they query, which can be downloaded for free on her website. She runs a personal blog on publishing and is a founding author of the QueryTracker blog. She blogs regularly at The League of Extraordinary Writers, co-organizes WriteOnCon, and can be found on Twitter and Facebook.


She wishes she could experience her first kiss again, tell the mean girl where to shove it, and have cool superpowers like reading minds and controlling fire. To fulfill her desires, she writes young adult science fiction and fantasy.

Now, for my questions!

  1. If you could have one wish that would allow you to do something you've always wanted to do (and Ryan Gosling isn't an appropriate answer), what would it be?
I’d wish that I could have perfect eyesight so I could apply to the air force academy and learn to fly fighter jets.

2. Why?
Because fighter jets are cool! They go fast, and you can do barrel rolls and stuff. <<The “stuff” is really technical. Ha!

  1. I wanted to be a pilot too - but just for fun! Bad eyesight messed me up as well :)

    LOVED Elana's Surrender - such a great book!

    On a similar note, I FINALLY started Hourglass tonight and I'm loving it! :)
