December Podcast with Marie Lu, Author of Legend
Looking for an action-packed way to finish off 2011? Well then, Legend is the book for you! This month, we have author Marie Lu on the program to tell us all about it, as well as discuss her lifelong journey to becoming a published writer, the influence of video games and anime on her work, and more. We had so much fun chatting with Marie!
In this episode, Allison and I also share our book picks of the month - Across the Universe by Beth Revis and Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer, and we're happy to announce that Beth and Andrea will both be joining us on Authors are ROCKSTARS! in 2012. So excited!
Thanks again to Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena for being such awesome hosts and friends of the podcast. We love you guys!

Fantastic interview, as always! Can't wait to read this book. One question--how do you both select your song of the month? Is it themed to the author/books you're highlighting? Love this month's song!ReplyDelete
We find musicians who allow podcasts to play their music (primarily via musicalley.com) and then work on finding a song that suits the book. We always try to keep it themed/related to one of the books mentioned on the podcast. :)ReplyDelete
Everything I hear and read about this book makes me want to get my hands on a copy!ReplyDelete
