About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

CRESCENDO Paperback Blog Tour - Day 4

CRESCENDO was released in paperback on Tuesday and in celebration our Blog Tour has stopped off over at FallenArchangel, Late Bloomer Online and The Book Cellar.   Today the CRESCENDO Paperback Blog Tour is stopping off here so that Becca can answer a few fan questions as she gets ready for her Live VIDEO Chat on Goodreads next week.

What has been the most difficult scene to write in the HUSH, HUSH Saga so far (including Book 4)? I'm writing the final pages of Book 4 right now. It's hard! It's the end of the series, and I want to make sure every last thread is tied up and the story feels finished. I don't want to handle it the wrong way. It's one of the most important scenes in the series. I don't want to botch it!

Was writing the last book harder than writing the others, since you know it will wrap up the story? Yes and no. The writing and storytelling feel easier now, and I think that comes through experience. But there is definitely a pressure to live up to readers' expectations.

If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only have 5 things with you, what would you want to have?? Oh, wow, that's tough! My family. Electricity. My iPhone. A freezer filled with ice cream. Maybe...a magic wand?

Favorite indulgence? A bubble bath and a book. Online shopping. Homemade brownies. Veronica Mars.

Favorite color? Red

There's sure to be lots of great Q's at the video chat which will be on TUESDAY, JANUARY 10.  Hope to see you there!
Join us at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT at http://www.goodreads.com/topic/video_chat/30 on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 for a live video chat with Becca Fitzpatrick, author of The Hush Hush Saga. To celebrate the long anticipated paperback release of Crescendo, book two in series, Becca has a major announcement to make about book four, the final book in the series! Becca will take questions from readers and then Moira Young, author of Blood Red Road, will join the chat for a fun author-to-author Q&A. Don't miss this!
You can find the event info here on Facebook or here on Goodreads!

I went to my local bookstore in my pj's how excited I was! I couldn't handle the excitement! I had to get out of the house! When I picked up Crescendo... I was shaking so much I couldn't turn the pages properly. When I finished reading the beginning of Finale, I was completely stunned and in love with it already! Why do you do this to me Becca Fitzpatrick?! Dante sounds very sexy indeed... and I wouldn't mind having a friend like him! ;) Thanks for this one... and thank you for writing such beautiful and tormenting books! :D
