First and foremost, if you haven’t read A THOUSAND PIECES OF YOU yet, read no further into this post! Everything after the jump may be spoilery as all get out. However, if you have read ATPOY already …
… it’s possible you might have some questions for me. So, ask away! I’ll answer in comments and/or add the Q&A to this post.
I’ll kick things off with two questions I’ve already been asked several times:
1. When does the second Firebird book come out?
November 2015! Yes, that’s a while from now – but I plan to write several short stories that I’ll post on Wattpad (maybe here, too) to tide you guys over. Each of the universes has its own stories to tell, after all, plus I think some scenes will be fun from other characters’ POV. Related to this: I might not be able to read it for legal reasons, but if I don’t hear about some ATPOY fanfic showing up out there, I’m going to be super disappointed.
2. Is Marguerite’s nickname, Meg, a shout-out to A WRINKLE IN TIME?
As much as I love A WRINKLE IN TIME — and as inspirational as it was for some core aspects of the book — the nickname actually isn’t a reference to that at all. In fact, if I’d thought of it, I would’ve had Triadverse Theo call her something else, for short. The reason I never thought of it, I guess, is that everyone else in her life, even her own world’s Theo, only calls her by her full name. To everybody else, she’s Marguerite.
Oh, and nobody’s asked me this, but it might be handy as reference:
3. What shorthand did you use for each universe?
I call them the “Londonverse,” the “Russiaverse,” the “Triadverse” and the “Oceanverse.”
So, any more questions for me?
Thought I’d also add info about a couple other cool things happening soon:
Tomorrow, starting at 6 pm EST/5 pm CST, I’ll be interviewed on Twitter by the one and only Lauren Oliver! All you have to do is follow one or both of us via Twitter and check it out.
And through Monday, November 17, you can enter the Epic Reads ATPOY Contest, in which you can win a $150 travel gift card, a poster and bookmark, and a copy of the book. Ten runners up will get the poster, bookmark and the book. Of course, if you obeyed my spoiler warnings above, you haven’t read this post unless you’ve already read the book — but hey, the holidays are coming up. You could give ATPOY as a gift to a friend, while clinging to the beautiful swag for yourself. 😀
