FF- The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott

This week I'm pleased to welcome GCC sister Elizabeth Scott to the blog, celebrating the release of her latest YA novel, THE UNWRITTEN RULE.

The Author:

Elizabeth Scott grew up in a town so small it didn't even have a post office, though it did boast an impressive cattle population. She's sold hardware and panty hose and had a memorable three-day stint in the dot-com industry, where she learned that she really didn't want a career burning CDs. She lives just outside Washington, DC, with her husband; firmly believes you can never own too many books; and would love it if you visited her website, http://www.elizabethwrites.com. You can also follow Elizabeth on her blog, on facebook, on myspace and on twitter.

The Book:

Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like you best friend's boyfriend.

Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more...

The Interview:

What inspired you to write The Unwritten Rule?
It actually came about because my editor at Simon Pulse, Jennifer Klonsky, and I were talking about friendships and high school and the things you just instinctively knew you could never ever do then, like be interested in a friend's boyfriend and I said, "Yeah, it's like the unwritten rule," and bam! There was the story. It just popped into my head--all the characters, everything that was going to happen--and I love my editor for letting me take the idea and run with it!

Have you ever had a premonition? What happened?
I knew my husband was someone special and that he was going to be in my life the first time I ever saw him. And since he's my husband, I guess I was right!
Are you superstitious in any way?
I don't know why, but I really hate it when it's a Friday the 13th.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?
I'm allergic to so many things it's sad. And it sucks. Going outside for more than twenty minutes from March to October--forget it! However, I am a very cheap dinner date...
What are you working on now?
My next book, Grace, will be out from Dutton in September. It's about a girl who's been raised to be a suicide bomber--and what happens when she decides she wants to live.

What is an interesting writing quirk of yours?
I have to be wearing my comfy black pants. (Well, I don't have to be, but I sure like to be!)

What kind of chocolate best describes you? None--I'm allergic to it! (See, told you I had so many allergies it was sad...)

The Freebie:

Up for grabs this week is a signed copy of THE UNWRITTEN RULE. To be entered to win, leave a comment below, telling us about the any unwritten rules you might have with your friends. This drawing will remain open until Wednesday, March 24.

Edited to add: D'oh! I keep calling this book "The Unspoken Rule" on Twitter. I am mortified. Please make me feel better by sharing something embarrassing you've done recently. All comments will equal one entry in the drawing.

Shhh... It's a Secret

On the iPod - Just Dance by Lady GaGa

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Super massively celebrating today. Irish soda bread baked, dilly casserole bread in the oven, corned beef waiting to go. No, I'm not Irish, but one of the main characters in my upcoming MG series is. Does that count?

The winner of Jennifer Hubbard's THE SECRET YEAR is:


Please send your mailing instructions to gerb (at) lindagerber (dot) com and we'll get that sent out to you. Don't forget to write "winner" in the subject header so it won't get lost in my inbox!

Everyone else, come on back on Friday when for a release week celebration with Elizabeth Scott and your chance to win a signed copy of THE UNWRITTEN RULE!!!

Okay - I promised I would tell you the story of my secret relationship a long, long, long time ago...

Back in my neighborhood growing up, we had a group that got together every summer evening to hang out and play kick the can and popgun and radar and about anything else we could think of. In our group, a boy who was about three years older than me singled me out. He would hide with me sometimes during the games. We'd crouch in the bushes together and he might hold my hand, but I didn't think much of it.

Then one day I started to get little gifts on my doorstep from "a secret admirer." I didn't like it much because it meant I got teased by my siblings and any friends who found out about it. So I left a note telling the guy to stop.

That night, this boy 'revealed' that the gifts had been from him. He wanted us to 'go together' and made me kiss him, but he said our boyfriend/girlfriend status had to be a secret. I guess he didn't want to be teased by his friends either since I was so much younger than him. Not much changed, except that when he hid with me during the games, I knew why. And he would sneak kisses sometimes.

We were 'together' secretly like that for months. Until one day I was coming home from a friend's house something felt off. My neighborhood was too quiet. No kids outside playing. No moms visiting on front lawns. Even the birds had stopped singing. It was dead still. I dumped my bike on the driveway and ran into the house. My mom was sitting at the kitchen table, a wadded tissue in her hand. Her eyes were puffy and red. When I walked in, she looked up at me and her eyes welled again. She told me this boy had been cleaning rifles with a friend in anticipation of a hunting trip and his had gone off. He was dead.

I didn't know what to do. I remember wandering outside where I sat on a swing and stared at nothing for a long time. My whole chest felt hollow. I mean, I wasn't in love with the guy or anything, but he was my first boyfriend, if you could call it that. I ached for his family's loss. I ached for him. And I couldn't tell anyone how I was feeling, because I had promised to keep it secret. Which is why there are no names in this story. It still is.

Sooooo... what else is happening this week?

Readergirlz is hosting a LIVE chat with Scott Westerfeld tonight! http://bit.ly/ahuTaT

Wimpy Kid hits the movie screens. http://tinyurl.com/ybt78fz (This is big in our house because youngest son is excited to see it - and hoping they are truer to the book than the Percy Jackson movie was.)

I have 63 entries left to judge in the Central Ohio Writing Contest before next week... which is why I won't be listing more what's happening this week. Sorry!

FF - THE SECRET YEAR by Jennifer Hubbard

Welcome to another debut author celebration Freebie Friday with YA author Jennifer Hubbard, whose book THE SECRET YEAR just hit the shelves in January.

The author:

Jen is from Philadelphia. She's a night person who believes mornings are to be slept through. Like me, she's a chocolate lover, and she loves to hike. She hikes nearly every day if she can.

She is an avid reader and began writing at the tender age of six. Her short fiction has appeared in literary magazines such as Willow Review and North American Review. THE SECRET YEAR is her first novel.

You can find out more about Jennifer on her website, her blog, or by following her on twitter.

The Book:

Colt and Julie were secretly together for an entire year, and no one - not even Julia's boyfriend - knew. They had nothing in common, with Julie in her country club world on Black Mountain and Cold from down on the flats, but it never mattered. Until Julia dies in a car accident and cold learns the price of secrecy. He can't mourn Julia openly, and he's tormented that he might have played a parrt in her death. When Julia's journal ends up in his hands, Colt relives their year together. But how do you get over someone who was never yours in the first place?

The Interview:

What inspired you to write The Secret Year?
I had the idea of a secret relationship, a death, a notebook left behind. I wrote the book to find out what would happen next.

Are any of your characters based on real people that you know?
No. I deliberately avoid doing that. However, I’ve given some of the characters my own preferences and quirks: Julia’s love of Christmas decorations, Kirby’s desire to walk in the snow.

What excites you?
Long stretches of time in which I can write or read or hike as I please!

What turns you off?
Wastefulness. Car alarms. People who drive through red lights.

If you could invite anyone you wanted - living or dead - to hang out with you at a weekend retreat, who would you invite and why?
I’d be tempted to ask Einstein, but I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to keep up my end of the conversation.

Have you ever kept a relationship secret?
No, I haven’t been in a situation like Colt and Julia’s!

Do you have any special writing rituals or totems to connect with your muse?
I like to turn on the music and have a bite of chocolate at the start of a writing session. Physical activities, such as hiking or showering or doing laundry, also give time for the muse to come out and kick around some ideas.

What songs would make the playlist for The Secret Year?
I listened to a lot of Fleetwood Mac and Tom Waits while I wrote this book, but I don’t know if others would connect that music with the book. REM’s “Turn You Inside Out” was very helpful while I was rewriting the final scene in the book.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?
? I have no idea.

What's your favorite quote?
I have, “Do not wait until you are thirsty to dig the well” posted in my writing office. I don’t know if that’s my favorite, but I like it.

The Freebie: Jennifer is offering a miniature version of Julia's notebook to this week's lucky winner, along with some postcards and bookmarks. To be entered to win, leave a comment below telling us - have you ever had (or wanted to have) a secret relationship? (I have... I'll tell you about it on Wednesday, March 17 (ooh! St. Patrick's Day!) when this drawing closes.)

Bonus Freebie! I'm blogging over at Teen Fiction Cafe today to celebrate our third anniversary. Come party with us and you could win books!

FF - GONE by Lisa McMann

Today's Freebie Friday format will be a little different.

We're celebrating Lisa McMann today. Lisa's a friend I met through the Backspace writers' hangout. She's as funny, genuine and real in person as she is online. And she's a New York Times best selling author. All the books have hit the NYT, USA Today and Amazon bestseller lists and her WAKE series is sitting pretty at #10 on the NYT series list (huge! Yay, Lisa!)

Besides admiring her writing and really liking her as a person, here's another reason why I think Lisa rocks. (Remember I said I'd tell you later?) At the risk of being really presumptuous, I asked Lisa - as she was gearing up to go on tour with GONE, no less - if she could read TRANCE and possibly give me a blurb for the cover. I have to tell you, I was really hesitant about asking her because she has sooo much going on. But Lisa was very gracious about it (as always. I've never known her to not be completely supportive and generous with her time). So here's the blurb as she wrote it:
A fast-paced, heartwrenching paranormal thriller co-starring
a sexy
motorcycle-riding guy who plays piano?
This is seriously my kind of
book. TRANCE is addictive.
Woot! She liked it! Now as these things go, the publiser condensed the blurb a little for the front cover. So this is what you'll see:
BUT - this post isn't about TRANCE. Back to GONE!
Here's the official blurb:

Things should be great for Janie--she has graduated from high school and is spending her summer with Cabel, the guy she's totally in love with. But deep down she's panicking about how she's going to survive her future when getting sucked into other people's dreams is really starting to take its toll. Things get even more complicated when she meets her father for the very first time--and he's in a coma. As Janie uncovers his secret past, she begins to realize that the choice thought she had has more dire consequences than she ever imagined.

Seriously, this book is sooo good.

AND, you're going to want to pay attention to Lisa in the coming year because her next book - a standalone called CRYER'S CROSS - sounds like it's going to be filled with shivery goodness, too. You won't want to miss it.

And, all you MG fans, watch for her MG series (2011) called THE UNWANTEDS. It's one of those fabulous concepts that, when she was telling us about it, I was like, man! I wish I'd thought of that!

In short, Lisa is brilliant.

Okay, now for the interview: Instead of the regular format, I'll share some of the questions/answers from the signing on Tuesday:

What's up with the timestamps in the books?
Although it isn't spelled out in the books, this is because when Janie is sucked into a dream, she would be very aware of the time she was "out" and as such, checking the time. (Which is exactly what Ashlyn does in TRANCE! But again, this post is not about my book...)

Why did you decide to write about dreams?
The books actually grew from a dream Lisa had one night where she was inside her husband's dream. She woke up and thought it would be an interesting concept for a story and wrote it down on the little notepad she keeps on her bedside table.

Are any of your characters based on people you know?
Captain and Sir in particular as based on people Lisa knows. She also said that there's parts of her in both Janie and Cabe and that her son was a big inspiration for Cabe.

Why did you choose that social class for Janie and Cabe?
Lisa covered this in depth on Holly Cupala's 'story secrets' a little while ago. Basically, she loves to root for the underdog so she gave them underdog challenges.

What books are you reading now/ what books to you recommend?
HOW TO SAY GOODBYE IN ROBOT by Natalie Standiford
FAT CAT by Robin Brande
20 BOY SUMMER by Sarah Ockler
THE MARK by Jen Nadol

Up for grabs this week: a signed copy of GONE! To be entered to win, leave a comment below telling me either 1.) why you love Lisa McMann or 2.) how much you want to read GONE. This contest will remain open until Wednesday, March 10.

Vladimir Putin and Me

On the iPod - Halfway Gone by Lifehouse

Let Women Jump!

What do Vladimir Putin and I have in common? We both got this really cool brochure (in Russian!) from my friend Vic at WSJUSA and a fabulous ski jump pin that says 'Sochi 2014'.

Is it too early to start thinking about the 2014 Olympics? I don't think so. The women jumpers have been fighting for inclusion to the Winter Olympic Games for YEARS. They need all the support they can get. So I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to keep beating this drum. If you haven't shown your support for the women jumpers yet, please do. Visit the WSJUSA site right now. I'll wait.

2014 HAS to be the year. Anything else would be unacceptable. All the pathetic excuses the IOC has given to freeze them out won't work any more. Let's rally around the women and make it happen!

Lisa McMann:

Last night I met with the fabulous Lisa McMann at her signing in Cincinnati. We got to sit down and chat with Lauren from Shooting Stars Magazine and her beautiful sister Kari, the camerawoman. I'll tell you all about it on Friday when a signed copy of GONE is up for grabs on our return to FREEBIE FRIDAY!

Party Time!!!

We're celebrating our three-year birthday over at Teen Fiction Cafe this month! Be sure to stop by for cool posts and a whole ton of freebies from your favorite authors. Here's the lineup:

1st Sara Zarr, 2nd Wendy Toliver, 3rd Erica Orloff, 4th Alyson Noel, 5th Lauren Baratz-Logsted, 6th Stephanie Kuehnert, 7th Sara Hantz, 8th Kelly Parra, 9th Jessica Burkhart, 10th Meslissa Walker, 11th Kay Cassidy, 12th ME!, 13th Amanda Ashby, 15th - winners announced.

Happy Release Week!

Lauren Oliver (BEFORE I FALL), Rachel Hawkins (HEX HALL ), Susanne Dunlap (ANASTASIA'S SECRET), Jen Calonita (BROADWAY LIGHTS: SECRETS OF MY HOLLYWOOD LIFE), Gemma Malley (THE RETURNERS ), Angela Morrison (SING ME TO SLEEP) and Teri Hall (THE LINE)!
