Interview with Gloria Chao – author of Rent a Boyfriend, Our Wayward Fate and American Panda

Last year, I got lucky enough to read an early copy of Rent a Boyfriend. And then immediately fell in love with the story. A fake dating trope that takes the concept of renting boyfriend during holidays to keep nagging parents at bay (that rhymed, lol)? Exciting! And so was the book. So I slid into Gloria’s emails and asked for an interview because, like the curious soul I am, I wanted to know more behind the scenes of writing and the book.

And here is the very fun and AMAZING interview that I had with her. From writing and diverse rep to book and movie recs, I hope you enjoy it!

Interview with Akemi Dawn Bowman – author of Starfish, Summer Bird Blue, Harley in the Sky and The Infinity Courts – TIC buzz week celebration

I have always adored Akemi and her books, and being a part of her street team had been nothing short of amazing. I was so lucky to have gotten an early manuscript of her upcoming book to read and fawn upon. Coming on April 16th, The Infinity Courts is her debut YA science fiction and when I tell you it was super, fabulous, amazing and completely blew me away – I mean it.

Westworld meets Warcross in this high-stakes, incisive, dizzyingly smart sci-fi about a teen girl navigating an afterlife in which she must defeat an AI entity intent on destroying humanity.”

Already sounds interesting, doesn’t it?

So, I sat down with Akemi to talk about The Infinity Courts, science fiction and diversity, writing and so much more. This interview is absolutely spoiler free so read on and enjoy! There’s a little extra something at the end too, so stay haha!
