It all might have been so different. Writing a novel is a strange process. It’s a sort of self-induced hypnotism- getting your mind into a daydream state where you can tap into all those ideas and images we all have already stored up somewhere in there. I usually start at the beginning of the story and work through it, but events can change radically as I go along, so I often have to go...

I’ve been told that you don’t spend a great deal of time online. I must admit I’m both jealous and impressed. As an author, I seem to find myself with an ever-growing load of Internet-related work tasks. At times, it can be quite overwhelming. How do you feel about the growing role of the Internet in authors’ lives? Until recently I only used the internet at the local library, and even now I have...
Kirsten Miller reviews Incarceron and Sapphique! →
I’m going to be honest with you. I have no idea how to describe this series. And from what I’ve read, other reviewers seem to have the same problem. Incarceron and Sapphique are unlike any books I have ever cracked open. But I do know how to describe their author. Catherine Fisher is a genius. I am absolutely in awe of her imagination and talent…read more

Brenna, thank you for letting me post on your blog! Huge congratulations on the well-deserved success of The Replacement! And hello to Brenna’s readers! I thought I would take this chance to introduce myself (and my book, Matched) to all of you. I’m a mother of three boys, a former high school English teacher, a runner, a reader, and a lover of art and music (though I can neither draw nor play...

It’s time for the latest installment in the Breathless Reads blog tour! Today kicks off my week with Ally Condie, author of the fascinating, romantic, and highly dystopian Matched, which comes out November 30th from Penguin Young Readers…read more
Kirsten Miller interviews Ally Condie! →
1. I’ve heard people argue that “dystopian fiction” is just a new, girl-friendly label for books that might have been called “science-fiction” in the past. Do you think this is true? Did you read much science-fiction in your youth? I hadn’t heard that argument! That is an interesting point. I think it may have some merit—but do girls shy away from science fiction as a rule? I really liked...

TODAY WE WELCOME AUTHOR ALLY CONDIE TO THE BLOG! HI ALLY!!! Hi Kirsten! And Kirsten’s readers! Thank you so much for letting me post on your blog. One of my favorite parts about The Eternal Ones was how Haven had to adjust her view of Iain. How she had ideas about what she thought/hoped/remembered he would be like, but then she continually had to alter her those ideas to fit the actual person,...
Kirsten Miller reviews MATCHED! →
I’ve been looking forward to writing this review. Matched is a beautiful book—and I don’t say that lightly. I read Ally Condie’s new novel with a pencil in one hand. Eventually I had to stop marking all phrases and passages I wished I had written. The story was too thrilling to keep pausing to underline every third sentence…read more

This month’s Penguin Five spotlight is NIGHTSHADE, a steamy paranormal romance by Andrea Cremer. And, once again, Penguin is providing two copies for giveaways later this week!

When I read The Eternal Ones I fell in love with the characters Kirsten created, but I was equally bewitched by the settings she created. I often talk about the wolf mythology of Nightshade deriving from my upbringing in Northern Wisconsin and a follow-up question I’ve encountered is: So why isn’t your book set in the woods of Wisconsin and Minnesota?…read more
Kirsten Miller reviews NIGHTSHADE! →
Some reviewers might praise Nightshade for it’s thrilling new take on werewolves. (Although “werewolves” might not be the right word.) Other reviewers might choose to explore the book’s fascinating parallel world in which witches, wolves, and humans live side by side. Me? I’m going to focus on all the lovin’ going on in Nightshade. This is totally out of character for me. I am not the kind of girl...

1) The Replacement is one of the most original stories that I’ve read in recent years. Sometimes it’s easy to identify an author’s influences, but I must admit, I’m drawing a blank here. What was it that sparked the idea for this book? First, I need to put this out there: I am a huge pack-rat. I try not to be messy about it (much), but I save everything, and everything seems interesting and...

Hi, everyone, I’m really excited to be guest-posting here on Kirsten’s blog! Last month, I was lucky enough to have Kirsten as a guest on my own blog, and I got to ask her a few questions. In the Eternal Ones, main character Haven Moore and her good friend Beau run a very successful business making formal dresses for their classmates, so naturally I wanted to know if Kirsten was a whiz with the...

This week, I’m going to be spending some quality blog time with Brenna Yovanoff, author of the fabulous new book, The Replacement.

Brenna, welcome! Can you tell us the top five things you think we should know about you? Thanks so much for having me, Ally! Hmmm, what to say about me … Well, here’s something you’d notice right away: I have a lot of very yellow hair that kind of makes me look like a small lion wearing a dress. Not as readily apparent: I like indoor-gardens, horror movies, cotton candy, and...
