Oh, I always get so embarrassed whenever I have to talk about myself, but okay, here goes (take deep breath):
Hey there, I’m Elizabeth Scott, and I write young adult novels. You can learn more about my books–and me too–at my website.
2. Are there any special events, panels or galleys you are looking forward to?
I’m really looking forward to the YA paranormal panel on Wednesday, May 26th at 11 AM on the Downtown Stage–Holly Black, Richelle Mead, Andrea Cremer, and Ivy Devlin will all be there. (I know Ivy *very* well–in fact she’ll be wearing sneakers just like the ones that are Sarah’s favorites in my latest novel, The Unwritten Rule!)
As for galleys–there are so many I want (and hope to get!) I’ll also be attending the blogger conference author reception, so if you’re going to that, I’d love to meet you!
3. Will this be your first time attending BEA or are you a veteran? Any advice for those who are going for the first time?
I’m a BEA veteran–this is my fourth time attending! My advice: bring a big tote bag to for ARCs, wear super comfy shoes, and be prepared for loooooong waits for food (The Javits Center has nowhere to eat nearby, so everyone has to eat there)
4. Will you be doing an autograph signing at the expo? Any other fun stuff on your agenda?
I will! I’ll be signing (free!) hardcover copies of The Unwritten Rule from 1:30-2:00 PM on Wednesday, the 26th, in booth 3484
And Dutton will have some ARCs of my September novel, Grace, available in booths 3540/3541 during BEA.
5. What other projects are you working on that you would like to tell us about?
In addition to Grace, which is coming out in September, I have a novel coming out from Simon Pulse in 2011 called Between Here and Forever, and I’ll have another novel coming out from Dutton in 2011 as well.
Synopsis (Product Description):
Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don’t like your best friend’s boyfriend.
Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He’s easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he’s paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna’s boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah’s best friend.
Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she’s thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It’s wonderful…and awful.
Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can’t stop herself from wanting more…
Synopsis (Product Description):
Grace was raised to be an Angel, a herald of death by suicide bomb. But she refuses to die for the cause, and now Grace is on the run, daring to dream of freedom. In search of a border she may never reach, she travels among malevolent soldiers on a decrepit train crawling through the desert. Accompanied by the mysterious Kerr, Grace struggles to be invisible, but the fear of discovery looms large as she recalls the history and events that delivered her uncertain fate.
Told in spare, powerful prose, this tale of a dystopian near future will haunt readers long after they’ve reached the final page.
