With the upcoming cover reveal for Who we were coming up this Thursday, August 15th we asked Christy to sit down with us and give us a little insight into the book.
Candie and Michelle: What inspired you to write this story?
Christy Sloat: I was actually in the middle of writing a whole different story when the idea for Who We Were came to me. I was thinking about the time I went to summer school and how one summer changed so much in my life. Then, just like that, the characters were born.
Candie and Michelle: So glad they were created. Is it similar in any way to your other two series?
Christy Sloat:It's absolutely nothing like the other series.
Candie and Michelle: How exciting! How does it differ?
Christy Sloat: This book is a contemporary romance, and has no paranormal in it. It's definitely different than anything I've written but I enjoyed it so much. I stepped out of my comfort zone and I'm so happy I did.
Candie and Michelle: Good for you Christy. I know it will be AMAZING. Do you feel you relate to any of the new characters?
Christy Sloat: I can relate to the main character, Sadie. She changed so much about herself in just one summer. I think everyone has reinvented themselves at one time or another.
Candie and Michelle: I know we will fall in love with her too. We don't want to give anything away but can you share a quote or two from it?
"I did want to reinvent myself, so I would do that. I would become the girl I had always wanted to be, and I wouldn’t have anyone holding me back."
“This is … just beautiful. Thank you for having me here tonight.” I leaned my head on his shoulder.
“It’s only beautiful because you’re here. Normally I sit here alone.”
I closed my eyes picturing a lonely Nolan. “You’ll never be alone again.”
“Promise?” He held his pinky in the air. “Forever promise.” I looped my pinky around his
Candie and Michelle: Beautiful. I love them all!
Thank you so much for giving us a sneak peek. Make sure all you readers come back Thursday, August 15th for the OFFICIAL cover reveal of WHO WE WERE.
