Delightful Debutantes #5: Cat Clarke & Entangled.

Entangled by Cat Clarke is an upcoming UK debut that I've heard a lot of good things about already.  I'm looking forward to checking this one out when it releases in January. Read on to find out more about Cat and Entangled.  Don't you just love the cover of this book? Stunning!

I know you like to tweet! Can you describe Entangled in just one tweet (140 characters or less)?

Grace wakes up in strange white room and must struggle to make sense of the tangled relationships in her life. Story includes two hot boys.

I think you’ll find there’s one whole character to spare there. Although it took me WAY longer than it should have.

Learning that your book is going to be published must be very exciting. How did you celebrate when you learned that Entangled was going to be published?

It was massively exciting.  On the actual day I just went home and sat on the sofa in a sort of daze. Over the next few weeks there may or may not have been some champagne consumed. I also bought myself a yay-your-book’s-being-published necklace, which I wear most days.

I know from reading your blog that Christopher Pike was one of your favourite authors as a teen (mine too!) What is your favourite Pike book/s?

You’re a Christopher Pike fan too? AWESOME! So hard to choose my favourites, but I’ll go with Remember Me, the Final Friends trilogy and The Midnight Club. Ooh, and I loved Bury Me Deep too. What are your favourites?

- My favourites have to be the Chain Letter books and Whisper of Death.  The cover of that book is scary!!

What is it you love about Young Adult fiction, and why do you like writing for teens?

I love everything about YA, especially the importance of great storytelling, believable characters and a strong voice. It never even occurred to me to write anything else. When people ask me when I’m going to start writing books for adults, I think they’re crazy.

Can you name three other books that you think readers of your book might enjoy?

Just three? *puts thinking cap on* *takes thinking cap off two hours later*

Some Girls Are, Courtney Summers
Before I Fall, Lauren Oliver
Everything Beautiful, Simmone Howell

You can’t possibly go wrong with those three.

I read that the working title of your next work-in-progress novel is Buried. Can you tell me a little about that one?

If you’ve read Entangled, you won’t be surprised to find out that it’s somewhat dark. It’s about the mysterious death of a girl on a school trip – one of those activity holidays where you’re forced to do lots of outdoorsy things in the rain. The main character is called Alice, and she manages to get herself involved with the dead girl’s brother, Jack. Jack is utterly adorable.
