You've seen me post on here time and time again about many great author events and signings that I (Flo) am fortunate enough to attend. Let me tell you, a large number of these happened at my favorite bookstore in Miami: Books and Books. Next Monday, October 12th they are bringing us the Fierce Reads Fall 2015 tour and we all are super excited! So for this week, a few of the Books and Books South Florida Bloggers are going to spotlighting the authors on our blogs. (Check out some of other others: Owl Always be Reading, Books & Swoon, Bookcrastinators In Wonderland, Dapper Animals blog, and Once Upon a Twilight.)
Today, we have the opportunity to ask Emma Mills a few questions about her new book First and Then. This will be released right around our event on the 12th and it sounds like a great story! Here's Emma:
1. Describe your book in 5 words?
Family, football, romance, and feels! (I’m counting the ‘and’)
2. Without spoilers, were there any scenes you had to cut that you wished you could have kept?
There was a quiet sort of scene between Devon and Ezra in the back half of the book that I really liked-- one in which some things about Ezra were revealed. Most of the content of this scene got threaded in elsewhere, and I think the storytelling is much stronger for it… but it hurt a bit to let go of that one at the time!
3. Do you have any future writing projects in the works?
I do! I’m working on another YA right now that I’m very excited about!
If you live in the South Florida area, I hope to see you at Books and Books next Monday night at 7 p.m. If you don't live here and still want in, you can totally watch the livestream!
