I’m mega excited having Gennifer Albin Author of Crewel today here at the Bookworms! She goes on Mini-Blog Tour to promote the an awesome promotion for Crewel.
Crewel is available as a $2.99 e-book for a limited time: Thursday 2/7 through Tuesday 2/12.
Woot!! Made of win! Love this price!
And, awesome enough I have Gennifer here today for a short Interview:
1. What was the most emotional moment you experienced after Crewel came out?
After I got home from the Fierce Reads tour, my family and I went to the bookstore. The store had my book on display and when we walked in my five year-old saw it and squealed, “Mommy, is that your book?” I can’t describe that moment, except to say it was perfect.
2. What was the funniest moment? (If there is a funny moment..) I wound up in a secret passage, drinking gin from teacups at the end of book tour. Believe me, it was funny. Or funny to me, but there was a lot of gin.
3. How was your first Book Signing now that the book is out when you compare it to BEA signing where most of the Readers haven’t read Crewel yet?
I think I finally know what I’m doing. Although I still sign too fast.
4. Did your writing routines change?
There is a lot more business to attend to each day, so I’m constantly adjusting and readjusting my schedule. Hopefully, I’ll figure out how to find more hours in the day soon. Perhaps one of these:
Ahh thank you so much for being here Gennifer!! I still remember your first signing at BEA and I was there having no idea how freaking awesome your book was!
Crewel by Gennifer Albin
Crewel by Gennifer Albin on goodreads:
Incapable. Awkward. Artless.
That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: she wants to fail.
Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen as a Spinster is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to embroider the very fabric of life. But if controlling what people eat, where they live and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.
Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and wove a moment at testing, and they’re coming for her—tonight.
Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her Dad’s stupid jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.
Because once you become a Spinster, there’s no turning back.
Quote from my 4.5* Review:
