Black Tiger by Sara Baysinger, a kick-ass YA dystopian, releases TOMORROW! To celebrate and get excited for the launch, Sara herself is stopping by Looselaf Reviews to answer some questions about her new book.
Check out the book on Amazon (today is the last day to pre-order for $.99!) and enjoy the interview below!
First of all, thank you for sharing your work! It was truly a pleasure to read!
This was one hell of a debut coming out of the gate! Is this the first novel you've completed? Or just the first that you've published?
Where and when was the brainchild for the Black Tiger series born?
This seemed like a very character-driven story. Did you have everything mapped out, or did the characters just start to write themselves?
Kentucky is a very specific setting. What made you choose the location?
I know what *I* am, but you about *you*? Team Forest or Team Rain?
Do you have any specific literary inspirations? [or] What are your favorite dystopian books?
Other than sequels (and please tell me it's more than one!), are there any other plot bunnies eating away at you?
What would you like to tell anyone who is considering picking up your book?
Hm.That’s a good question. There’s a lot of story building at the beginning, but action definitely picks up after that. People have been calling Black Tiger edgy, so I wouldn't let your 12 and under crowd reading it. Aaaand I hope you love reading Black Tiger as much as I loved writing it!! I just finished revising Book Two and am so thrilled about where this story is headed. :D :D :D
