So, it’s been a while since this blog got updated. The reasons are perfectly valid, dear Reader Numbering in the Ones: there was that little issue of the hosting thingie that kept my blog up on the internets going kaput and erasing every post from October 2013 onwards, and then that typhoon that went through the country that plunged us INTO A SECOND DARKNESS.
But all that’s part of the past now. I’ve put up (sloppy) versions of the entries that disappeared into the ether, and our internet connection finally, finally came back a couple of days ago. And I suddenly have lots of free time.
This conversation with Stephanie Perkins happened weeks ago, but I still remember it so clearly because I don’t think I’ve talked to a visiting author who was as cheerful and enthusiastic as she was. Sure, Margaret Stohl, Melissa dela Cruz, and Alyson Noel were a barrel of laughs (I’d like you guys to the transcript, but I can’t find it anywhere now.), but there were three of them. Stephanie was all by herself! And she had some stomach problems to boot!
ANYWAY. Under the cut, Stephanie talks about growing up in a family of readers, her publication journey, and her writing process. Also, we fangirled for a bit about Francesca Lia Block.
