SS&D Celebration: An Interview with Susan, Pt. 1 (+ Giveaway)

Something Strange and Deadly - Susan Dennard

In case you didn't already know, we are huge fans of the Something Strange and Deadly series and the author, Susan Dennard. We read the first book together, texting each other along the way (gushing most of the time!) and as you can imagine, we're very excited about the release of the sequel, A Darkness Strange & Lovely. One day, the idea to do a three-day celebration in honor of its release came pretty naturally and here we are! So please join us in our love for this amazing series (and Daniel Sheridan)!

If you missed it, check out our posts from yesterday! I dreamed up a date (+ outfits) for Eleanor & Daniel set in Philadelphia, while Rachel took on the challenge of doing a Paris version. Both posts were really fun to make and we hope you enjoy them!

Today, on the other hand, we have an interview with Susan Dennard! Instead of going the traditional route, we decided to do a video interview where Susan would record her answers and we would do ours. Our location of choice was a Barnes & Noble, where we had fun filming in front of the YA section...


The interview is split into two parts - the part about writing & 5 random facts about Susan is on my blog today, while the part containing more about the series & favorites is on Rachel's blog. It was a lot of fun getting to create these videos, and we hope you enjoy learning more about Susan and her books!


Thanks for watching the first part of our interview with Susan! For the other half, please go and check out Rachel's post for today. And now, of course, the moment you've all been waiting for - the giveaway! Thanks to Susan's enthusiasm and kindness, we have a great Something Strange and Deadly prize pack up for grabs!



THE PRIZE:
1 Something Strange and Deadly prize pack, which includes 1 signed paperback of Something Strange and Deadly, 1 signed hardcover of A Darkness Strange and Lovely + signed swag

RULES:
1. Contest is INTERNATIONAL.
2. Author provided the prizes for the winner. Organizers will be the ones to mail prize pack out.
3. Once contacted, the winner will have 48 hours to respond with their mailing address. Failure to do so will mean the prize is forfeit, and a new winner will be chosen.


Our Something Strange and Deadly celebration continues tomorrow with our reviews of the second book, A Darkness Strange and Lovely. [I reviewed the first book here!] Please don't forget to drop by and check it out! You can actually purchase your own copy of the book, as it is out today!

  5. You all look so lovely! Video interviews are always fun to follow, so thanks for sharing! I love that Susan received her best piece of advice from her dad. That's pretty awesome. :) I enjoyed Something Strange and Deadly quite a bit and can't wait to see what happens next. My copy is on its way to me right now, in fact! :)

  8. Oh my, she is precious!! I haven't read even the first book but I adore the cover for it and this new book! I LAUGHED HARD at having to black out the video! So fun. Oh my goodness, birds freak me out so much because I feel like they always fly toward my face! I LOVE MUSE and sometimes when I pretend I'm a rock star (which happens like at least once daily) I pretend I'm Matthew Bellamy, the lead guy. THAT IS NO JOKE. I think I really like Susan Dennard more now after this video. What a great gal! I can see why you like her so much, Alexa and Rachel!

  13. You guys! Such a fun (way to) interview. I haven't read Susan's books yet but I am VERY curious about them now. Also, she seems so cool, and I adore her friendship with Sarah J. Maas. They are too cute together. I think my favorite answer would be the tip from her dad to not stay isolated, because I can imagine writing to be lonely, and it's important to still be around people. Really liked this post!!

  20. From what I can tell, Susan Dennard is one of the sweetest writers out there today. She really has gone above and beyond to promote her newest book and I've heard nothing but good things about her. I hope I win, but no matter what, I'll be reading this series. Congratulations on the publishing of your second book, Susan!
