Author In The Hot Seat: Brooke Blaine #Interview

It'a another Author in the Hot Seat and I'm thrilled to have the incredible Brooke Blaine here. She'll be doing some fast fire questions with us and you'll see what's coming next. So, get comfy.

Fast Fire Questions 

Describe your writing style in three words.
I made Ella choose three for me, and she said “smart, sassy, and loving.” So, there you go. ;)

If you could pick one music artist to sing a song about you who would you pick?
Taylor Swift would nail it.

What are three of your favorite books from your childhood?
Any of the Baby-Sitters Club Books, Any of the Sweet Valley High books, and Little Women.

You co-write with Ella Frank. What are three things a writer must have to make a collaboration work?
Patience, a similar twisted sense of humor, and TRUST.

Of ALL the characters you’ve written name two you’d love to spend the day with IRL?
Paige from PITA (LA Liaisons Series #3) – she’s hilarious, slightly insane, and always up for a good time. She’d get us into some fun shenanigans.
Ace Locke from the Preslocke Series. Hellooo, he’s Hollywood’s hottest movie star, which means a chance to run into other hot movie stars (and check out all the behind the scenes action)!

Who is your biggest role model?
Ordinary people who do extraordinary things.

Where is one place you’ve never been you’d love to go to?
I want to go EVERYWHERE! But since you’re asking for one place, I’ll go with Greece.

Favorite color? It’s always been red, but now...maybe purple? I don’t really have a fave.
Favorite flower? Oh lawd, I don’t have a favorite flower either! Maybe calla lilies?
Favorite smell? This will probably sound weird, but I love the smell of my grandparents’ houses. They both are such comfort scents, and there’s nowhere else in the world that smells the way they do. <3

Biggest challenge you face as an author?
Oh, that’s easy. Branding is a tough one for me. I want to write all over the place, like some romcom over here, some paranormal over here, some contemporary over here, but what that means is it could potentially confuse readers. So maybe #scatterbrainedauthor is my brand?

Favorite fan moment?
I’ve had so many amazing moments with readers, but the first one that pops to mind is from when I was in San Francisco at a signing last year. A reader had traveled internationally to the U.S. for the first time, and when I asked why she chose San Francisco as her first U.S. experience, she said it was because I would be there. Can you say TEARS?? Seriously, I cried my damn (fake) lashes off. 

 Publishing April 25th from Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank

As Fallen Angel embarks on their worldwide Corruption tour, frontman Halo is forced to deal with his newfound fame, as well as his intense feelings for his bandmate, Viper.
Because now Halo has everything he ever dreamed of and one surprise he never expected: a boyfriend.

And Viper has the one thing he never thought he wanted but found himself chasing down: a relationship.

From the very beginning, they were drawn to each other, but can these polar opposites find lasting love, or will their flame burn out?

ANGEL is the third book of the Fallen Angel Series and should be read following HALO and VIPER. Halo and Viper’s story concludes in ANGEL.
