Can you introduce yourself to my readers a little?
Hi everyone (waving)! I’m Alyson Noel, and I’m the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Immortals series (Evermore), the Riley Bloom series (Shimmer), and seven previous stand-alone novels.
Can you introduce us to the world that you have created?
The Immortals series is a paranormal epic, about two star-crossed lovers—Ever Bloom, a psychic girl who can see auras—and her immortal soul mate, Damen Auguste—who strive to overcome enemies, obstacles, and the 400 year old curse that has kept them apart for numerous lifetimes, in the hopes of being together.
The Riley Bloom series is a middle grade spin-off, featuring Ever’s younger, ghostly sister, Riley, who, dead at twelve, finds herself living in the Here & Now where she’s been assigned a job as a Soul Catcher, which requires her to return to the earth plane in an attempt to convince lost and lingering souls to cross over—a task much tougher than she ever anticipated!
Will this be your first RT or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
I’m an RT virgin, so while I have no advice whatsoever, I am so looking forward to hanging out with my fellow authors and meeting all the readers!
Are you speaking on any panels during RT? Are there any you are looking forward to?
Thursday, I’ll be taking part in the Bookseller Panel: “Not Another Teen Panel” from 11:15 – 12: 15; Saturday (Teen Day!), I’ll be over at: “How do You Build a World—and Characters For It”, from 5:00 – 6:00, and of course I’ll be signing on Teen Day as well!!
If someone were wanting to meet up with you at RT, who should they look for?
Just look for the author trying to pretend as though her feet don’t really hurt even though they definitely hurt. I’m a sucker for high-heels, what can I say? And since the majority of my life is lived at my desk, dressed in sweat pants, a t-shirt, and Ugg slippers—conferences are my one big chance to wear “real” clothes. Blisters be damned!
