1. Describe your debut novel in sixteen words.
2. Pitch your book! For fans of _____, _____ meets _____, etc.
3. What are you working on now – is it related to your debut novel?
Bridget Hodder, Author of The Rat Prince
1. The Prince of the Rats becomes Cinderella's coachman in a most magical, romantic, and unexpected adventure!
2. If you liked The Legend of Zelda; if you thrill (secretly or openly) at Disney movies; if you like reading the words "Happily Ever After"...you and your friends will find THE RAT PRINCE both delicious and nutritious.
3. I have a couple of secret projects in the works-- one related to THE RAT PRINCE-- and the other one goes in a completely new direction!
Lygia Day Peñaflor, Author of Unscripted Joss Byrd
1. A critically acclaimed child star struggles with her demanding mother, a disturbing script, and impending puberty.
