GIVEAWAY! Interview with Authors: Annie Miles and Sorrel Provola

By: Annie Miles, John Byrne, Isabel Eckersley, Sorrel Provola
Book Description:
Abigail Shelton is dead. 

Spring Valley's golden girl is found floating face-down in her boyfriend’s pool, hands bound behind her back, head bleeding, drugs and alcohol in her system. Her friends are the only suspects – and they all have reasons to want her dead. Everyone has an alibi, but no one is innocent. 

ALIBI is a 4-part young adult e-book series. Each one-hundred page installment reveals the perspective of a different character: the secret love, the nemesis, the boyfriend, the best friend. As their tales unfold, we learn that Abby is not as perfect as everyone believes, but she’s not the only one with secrets to hide. This page-turning tale of suspense, betrayal, murder, and lust will keep fans of Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars up and reading well past curfew.(less) 


Interview with The Authors of the Alibi Series
Author behind Rowan: Sorell Provolo

1.  Give us three "Good to Know" facts about you.
I write every day.
I enjoy small-batch bourbons.
I never take my horoscope seriously, yet I read it religiously.
 2.    Books you currently have on your shelf
What books do I not have on my shelves? I have twenty years of reading hoarded in my apartment. Let’s keep it simple and restrict it to the pile of books currently on my nightstand:
Cat’s Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut
Moby Dick, Melville
Oblivion, David Foster Wallace
Life, Keith Richards
About three months’ worth of unread or partially read New Yorkers.
3.    What inspired you to write Rowan?
I’d never written YA before, but had always been curious to try it. And I really loved the idea of writing the part of the evil teenage genius.
44.   While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?"
No, not at all. The wonderful thing about fiction is that you can put your characters in bizarre or dangerous or ill-advised situations that you, as normal, non-fictional grown-up, would never in a million years get involved in. That said, I did draw on my own high school experience as the freaky, socially awkward shy girl to inform some of Rowan’s personality. But I could never to aspire to be as evil (or as smart) as she is.
5.  If the alibi series has a theme song, what will it be?
I’d go in for something by Def Leppard. But maybe that’s just me. 


Author behind Charles: Annie Miles

1.  Tell us a little about yourself?
I’m a twenty-seven year old perpetual student who loves to write, and I jumped at the chance to work on such an exciting project! I had never realized before working on ALIBI how much awesomeness can be done with ebooks. I’ve seen the light – now I really covet that new iPad! I also love everything homemade from food to crafts, my dog, Homer, and yoga.
2.  Books you currently have on your shelf
Currently I’m in a masters program in English lit, so I have a lot of Henry James and Thomas Hardy on my shelf right now! But my summer reading list includes: The Tiger’s Wife by Tea Obrecht and The Hunger Games series, which I STILL haven’t read but am so excited to finally get to so I can participate in conversations with normal people again. Now I know how alienated those people who didn’t read Harry Potter felt.
3.  TheUnseelieNerd: Charles is my favorite character, what inspired you to write Charles?
Thanks so much! I had fun writing him. Writing Charles really allowed me to tap into those adolescent feelings again, which I think if we really revisit, we kind of never let go of. Even though I’m a girl, and was never a super hot and popular male athlete in high school, I feel that uncertainty and a kind of loneliness, a kind of not being familiar with all of the changes in your world and starting to question things—these are all universal experiences with people who are turning into adults. So to write Charles alongside of the super exciting plot twists was a fun and rewarding challenge.
4.  What are your current projects?
Currently I write some short stories, and I try to participate in fiction workshops whenever I can. I’m working on a ghost story right now which I am excited about. But sadly, a lot of my writing these days is term papers (UGH!). This was my first YA effort, and it was such a blast that I hope I get the chance to do more!
5.  Favorite Starbucks drink?
Iced coffee, black. I’m a purist.
