inkpopper of the Week: A.K.A101

Posted by cat eyes & skinny jeans on May 23, 2011

“Hi, everyone! My name is Rebecca, though most of you know me by my pen name Alexia or just good old A.K.A (or akajar). As you can tell by my screen name, I have a large amount of nicknames which range from ‘Moose’ to ‘Canada.’ I’m a sixteen year old high school student who lives nearby the city of Chicago.

“I’ve been writing on a regular basis since I was twelve, but I really have been doing it long before that. I just started posting on the web around half a year ago, and how far I’ve come never ceases to stun me. I still get ideas all the time which gives me another nickname ‘The girl of a thousand stories.’ I have a habit of spacing off during the most random of times in my own little world which drives my friend’s nuts.

“I’m a dabbler in all of the arts besides writing. Not great at any of them, but I love playing around with each. I’m a cartoonist, sketcher, singer, and most strangely of all a bassoon player (Which is like a combo of a tuba and an oboe. Look it up). I live and breathe off music; it’s a little unearthly.”

Another thing that’s a little unearthly? Rebecca’s (aka A.K.A101) imagination and ability to create plots, settings, and characters that are unique, quirky, and purely her own, as seen in her popular inkpop project When the Dead Walk, We Run.

Though your project When the Dead Walk, We Run is labeled as being a blend of adventure, horror, and humor, it comes with a warning from you stating *Not for the Faint of Heart*. Can you explain this warning to us – why was it put in place? Do you feel that this warning has served to draw more readers in – why or why not?

A.K.A101: Ah, the warning. I think the main reason I put it in place is because I just don’t want someone picking it up before bed and getting scared out of their wits. It’s not exactly a scary novel, but there are parts of intense gore and just like how some other inkies have warnings for intense content, I thought I should do the same. I don’t want to give anyone a panic attack. That being said, it really hasn’t affected much. Mostly, I think it draws in hard core horror fans who think it’s going to be too light and fluffy, and captures humor fans who want some spice.

When the Dead Walk, We Run is such an original, fun project in that it is full of zombies, quirky characters, and an irresistible MC. Do you feel that these qualities are responsible for When the Dead Walk, We Run’s popularity on inkpop?

A.K.A101: I think it really is. When the Dead Walk, We Run, is such an odd duck. It’s really a mix of lots of genres reaching out to anything you want. Even if that’s a love of gore, or just wanting to laugh. I really think the main thing that hooks people, though, is the characters. I always get comments on how people say if they ran into Morgan on the street she already seems so real that they wouldn’t be shocked. That kind of realism I think helps pull a reader in, and gives me some solid ground in a zombie novel.

In your profile you state “Next book up is ‘Brightening Darkness’ which is coming out this summer. Your clues are monsters, shadows and paranormal romance.” Aside from the clues already mentioned, is there anything else you can tell us about this project?

A.K.A101: Brightening Darkness is a bit strange itself. There’s a long winded story behind it, so I’ll try to just go short. I have a very large series called There Dark Days. It’s a fantasy novel, rather complex, but in around the third book there’s a side character introduced that’s just very complex. I tried writing a story for her before during the same time TDD takes place, but I found it was rather redundant. So then I considered what if her real story is years later, what if her story is in modern times. Brianna is that character. The novel is about shape shifting monsters called shadow demons that have problems with human emotions. Brianna’s closest friend Nathaniel taught her how to embrace her human side, and when he goes missing she does to anything to get him back. It’s a little odd for me, since it’s a beautiful, twisted, paranormal, romance with lots of back-story, but I pray I can pull it off.

Can you tell us a bit about the creative process for When the Dead Walk, We Run? Where did the ideas for this particular project stem from?

A.K.A101: This is going to sound really cheesy and tacky, but from a dream, really. I had been reading a zombie novel before I went to bed (in hindsight was not one of my greater ideas) and had a dream where I got eaten by zombies. That dream thrust me into the whole ‘how about I write a zombie novel’ idea. The humor was a given, since I was working on Chasing Jake at the time and wanted to do something light hearted. It really came together as a whole when I was doing character building and wondering why Morgan and Isaac didn’t get together at the end. I had a moment where I realized she was gay, then I just sat there for a moment thinking ‘I’m writing a humorous zombie adventure novel, staring a closeted lesbian sharpshooter, a nerd, and a dog named Fred. What have I gotten myself into?’ Still haven’t answered that question yet.

What makes your writing unique? What sets it apart from other inkpop projects and books that have already been published?

A.K.A101: I think it’s a combo of two things: characters and just quirkiness. My characters tend to be each their own person; each has their own back story and life which makes them seem almost real. As with the quirkiness, I like to do things that have never been done before, or do things that have been done before in a totally twisted way. I don’t like writing about normal things; there’s no such thing. Everywhere you look you have something odd; that oddness really can bring a story to life.

What do you feel influences your writing and why?

A.K.A101: Music. A single song can give me an idea sometimes and it’s amazing how it works. I find myself being swept away by something not real. That and life in general gives me a lot of ideas. I find that doing ‘what ifs’ on normal life can give you some of the most brilliant ideas. Like, what if my brother went missing? What would I do? I thought go after him and that’s what really inspired Chasing Jake.

What made you fall in love with writing?

A.K.A101: When I was a little girl I was shy and very anxious. I all so had an imagination the size of Russia. So whenever I got overly stressed I would escape into my own little world, making up the most complex stories to go with it. I’ve always loved making things, but nothing compares to the feeling of making a whole world under the palm of your hand. It was a lot of fun and as I got older unlike other kids my imagination never vanished. So I decided why not use my escape as a job. Thus here I am now. 🙂

In your opinion, are zombies the next big thing – why or why not?

A.K.A101: Truthfully, not at all. The thing today is that YA is centered on romance, lots of hot guys saving pretty girls. The thing about zombies is while they leave open so many options to create and explore it is very, very, difficult to make a zombie hot. When your male lead is a guy who wants to eat you who smells like rotting flesh, it isn’t very romantic. 😛

Pop, Pop, Pop! Rapid Fire Questions:

Favorite quote? “If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.” ~ E. M. Forster
What’s on your iPod? Missing Persons 1 and 2 – One Republic; Vampire Money – My Chemical Romance; Born this Way – Lady Gaga.
Hidden talent? Bassoon playing.
Chocolate chip cookies or cupcakes? Cookies!
Best place to curl up with a good book? There’s this chair in my house that is great to read in. Best chair ever.

Blogger Book Review: Seth Baumgartner’s Love Manifesto by Eric Luper

Posted by cat eyes & skinny jeans on April 30, 2011

Happy weekend, inkpoppers! On this final April morning we bring you a few chuckles courtesy of Eric Luper’s Seth Baumgartner’s Love Manifesto – reviewed by Jennifer McIntosh of GoddessLibrarian.

Jennifer worked as a YA librarian for seven years, and describes herself as a “Sporadic Blogger; Book Reader; New Runner; Proud Mama.” Visit Jennifer at GoddessLibrarian for more YA book reviews; at this very moment, tuck into Seth Baumgartner’s Love Manifesto.

“Seth Baumgartner is taking his lunch break at Applebees with his long-time girlfriend when she drops a bomb–she’s breaking up with him because she’s just too ‘comfortable’ with him. While reeling from that devastating blow he sees his father walk into the restaurant–with another woman! The cherry on top of his craptacular cone comes when he returns to work late and loses his job. The fourth one of the year. Seth is just not having a good day. Seth responds by creating a podcast–the Love Manifesto–questioning why people fall in love in the first place and if it ever stands a chance.

“This *could* be a really sad book with a whiny protagonist. Instead, it’s a funny, well-written, engaging story that will appeal to both boys and girls. There are tons of local Capital District references. Eric Luper mentions street names and community names, and refers to the time the mudslide happened on Delaware Ave (I remember that!!). It was a treat being able to recognize so many of the locations Seth frequented. Seth is a funny guy with a good cast of supporting characters. Even though Seth makes mistakes along the way, his journey is entertaining and enlightening and readers want him to succeed.

“The book is about ‘love’ but there are many other issues as well: friendship, family, identity. The cover is awesome and allows boys to pick it up without feeling self-conscious. There’s so much written about the lack of good books for boys and the ‘boy reading problem.’ If only there were more books like this one! Cool cover, funny protagonist, sports (golf), music, technology, and yet the main character is in touch with his feelings. Put this one on your Christmas list for that hard to buy for boy in your life.”

Thank you to Jennifer McIntosh of GoddessLibrarian for chatting with us about Seth Baumgartner’s Love Manifesto.

Over to you…have you read Seth Baumgartner’s Love Manifesto? If so, what did you think of it? If not, will you be picking this book up during your next trip to the bookstore and/or library?

inkpop Fundamentals: April 5, 2011

Posted by cat eyes & skinny jeans on April 5, 2011

Exclusive online series from Louise Rennison starring Georgia Nicolson and newcomer Tallulah Casey! World Book Day may have come and gone on March 3, 2011, but in its wake it left over a little something from Louise Rennison, the Queen of Teen Humor, and author of the bestselling Georgia Nicolson series, and the soon-to-be released Withering Tights (her latest comedic YA series starring Tallulah Casey)…an exclusive online series featuring ten separate installments entitled How to Make Any Twit Fall in Love with You which stars the lovable Georgia Nicolson and her off-the-wall cousin Tallulah. Read the exclusive series here; and if you can’t wait until June to learn more about Tallulah, read the first chapter of Withering Tights here. World Book Day.

More books from YA author Ally Carter on the way If there were any worries that Ally Carter’s wildly popular Gallagher Girls or Heist Society YA series would be put to rest, readers can rest assured…Carter has just signed contracts with Disney-Hyperion to bring additional titles to both series to bookstores – and soon! “The publisher acquired the second book in the ‘Heist Society’ series, ‘Uncommon Criminals’–it’s set for a June 21st release. The publisher also acquired the fifth, untitled book in Carter’s ‘Gallagher Girls’ series–it’s scheduled for a spring 2012 release.” Additionally, Heist Society has been optioned by Warner Brothers to be adapted into a feature film. GalleyCat.

‘Hush, Hush’ graphic novel in the works! Author Becca Fitzpatrick has wowed the YA world with her New York Times Bestselling Hush, Hush Saga, which includes the novel Hush, Hush, its sequel Crescendo, and the soon to be released Silence. But now readers can devour the first installment – Hush, Hush in an entirely different way…that of a graphic novel. On March 31, 2011, Sea Lion Books made the announcement that they had acquired the rights to, and would be releasing a graphic novel adaptation of Hush, Hush in October 2011. “‘Hush, Hush’ is the story of Nora Grey, a studious sixteen-year-old girl from Coldwater, Maine. It has been a year since her father’s murder and she is not interested in much other than her schoolwork. Then she meets Patch, a bad boy—and fallen angel. Though unwisely attracted to him, Nora finds herself caught in a battle between the fallen and the immortal. Choosing the wrong side could cost Nora her life.” Becca Fitzpatrick.

Over to you…are you a Louise Rennison fan? What do you think of Tallulah Casey? Will you be picking up a copy of Withering Tights when it is released in June? Are you excited to see additional titles added to the Gallagher Girls and Heist Society series? Will you be seeing Heist Society when it makes it to theaters? Are you a fan of the Hush, Hush Saga? Will you be buying the graphic novel when it hits bookstores? If you could see any book series transformed into a graphic novel series, which one would it be and why?

Vampire Crush
I swear, my life was always totally normal.
Normal house, normal family, normal school. My looks are average, I don’t have any superpowers, no one’s showing up to tell me I’m a princess—you get the picture. But when my junior year started, something not normal happened. There were new kids at school . . . new kids with a wardrobe straight out of a 19th-century romance novel, and an inexplicable desire to stay at school until sundown.
And on top of that, James Hallowell showed up. James, who stole my sandwiches in fourth grade and teased me mercilessly through middle school. James, who now seems to have the power to make my heart race any time he comes near.
But something weird is going on. Because James rarely goes out during the day. And he seems stronger than your typical guy. And he knows the new kids, all of whom seem to be harboring some kind of deep secret. . . .

A. M. Robinson grew up in Indiana, but now lives in New York City, where she works in the publishing industry. She graduated from Indiana University with a double major in English and Chinese, but she is obviously only using the first one. Vampire Crush is her first book.

Maine Squeeze

Two irresistible and hilarious love stories (and really cute boys)!
In Maine Squeeze, eighteen-year-old Colleen Templeton can’t wait for summer. She’s going to share a house with her best friends, earn money for college, and spend every free moment with her boyfriend, Ben. It’s the perfect plan. At least until she discovers that she’s going to be working side by side with Evan, the guy she dated last summer—the best summer of her life . . . until he broke her heart. Will Colleen be able to keep her cool when this summer starts heating up?
Courtney Von Dragen Smith didn’t plan on being single her senior year. But in Banana Splitsville, thanks to her now-ex-boyfriend Dave, single is exactly what she is. And miserable. That’s okay, though, because she has a plan: steer clear of boys for the rest of high school. Oh, and stick to a new vegan diet. But it turns out that ignoring all guys (well, really one guy in particular) is about as hard as keeping away from sundaes when you work at Truth or Dairy. Is Courtney falling in love again? (With more than that dish of scrumptious ice cream?)

Catherine Clark is the author of several novels for teens, including The Alison Rules, Picture Perfect, and Maine Squeeze. Originally from western Massachusetts, Catherine now lives in Minneapolis, and works as a bookseller in Saint Paul at the renowned Red Balloon Bookshop. She occasionally teaches and even more occasionally goes running. She always loves hearing from readers through her website and corresponding with fans via e-mail.  She and her husband have two children: a daughter, and a 10-year-old Australian shepherd.

13 Little Blue Envelopes
Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket.
In envelope 2 are directions to a specific London flat.
The note in envelope 3 tells Ginny: Find a starving artist.
Because of envelope 4, Ginny and a playwright/thief/ bloke–about–town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous–though utterly romantic–results. But will she ever see him again?

Coming April 26, 2011: The Last Little Blue Envelope
Ginny Blackstone spent last summer traveling around Europe, following the tasks her aunt laid out in a series of letters before she died. But when someone stole Ginny’s backpack—and the last little blue envelope inside—the journey came to an abrupt end. Months later, a mysterious boy contacts Ginny from London, saying he’s found her bag. Ginny heads overseas and gets caught up in a whole new adventure, filled with old friends, new loves, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Ginny must hold on to her wits . . . and her heart. This time, there are no instructions.

Maureen Johnson is the author of The Key to the Golden Firebird, 13 Little Blue Envelopes, The Bermudez Triangle, and Devilish. She lives in New York City.
