Blog Tour Interview & Giveaway: Remember Me by Romily Bernard


Welcome to my tour stop for Remember Me by Romily Bernard. I read the first book in this series, Find Me last year and really enjoyed it (you can see my review here). I finished reading Remember Me last week and it was a seriously intense ride. You can see that review here. The author, Romily Bernard, was kind enough to answer some of my questions about this series. You can read the interview below and also enter the tour giveaway.

Remember Me
(Find Me #2)
by Romily Bernard
YA Suspense/Thriller
Hardcover355 Pages
September 23rd 2014 by HarperTeen                  

Summary

In the sequel to Find Me, Wick Tate, sarcastic teen hacker, is back and once again dealing with criminals and corrupt cops…and a brooding new love interest. Will Wick persevere when some secrets refuse to stay hidden?

Wick had thought her troubles were over.

But she should’ve known better.

Not only is she embroiled in a new murder case, which starts with a body with “Remember Me” carved into it and doesn’t stop there, but she also discovers new evidence surrounding her mother’s suicide…which leads her right back to her imprisoned deadbeat dad. And she has to deal with her flirty new hacker friend, Milo, sniffing around—which her boyfriend, Griff, isn’t too happy about.

The pressure might be too much as secrets—including Wick’s own—climb to the surface.

Remember Me is an edge-of-your-seat thrilling read that’ll have readers turning the pages at lightning speed! The paperback of Find Me is on sale simultaneously, and a digital original novella from Romily, featuring Griff, is on sale just a few weeks before!

Author Interview

Welcome to my blog today, Romily! I'm so happy to have you answer some of my questions about this series.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, Find Me. Did you know that this would be a series when Find Me was published and did you know where Wick’s story would lead for this second book, Remember Me? 

Thank you so much for reading Find Me!! I'm so happy you enjoyed it!! I originally wrote it as a standalone and was busily working on Lauren's story when my agent called and said Harper wanted to do a series. It really caught be by surprise (a wonderful surprise) and I started brainstorming what life might be like for Wick after the Find Me fallout.

I can't say how happy I am that they asked for more!!! What was the inspiration for Wick’s character? Has she evolved at all in this second book? 


She's definitely evolved. In Find Me, there was this constant push/pull between Wick's darker powers and her desire to be a good person. In Remember Me, I wanted to explore what Wick could do if she embraced her abilities. There were some great moments...and some pretty horrible realizations.

Yes, there were lots of poignant moments in Remember Me. I really, really love the covers for this series!! I know that most of the time authors don’t get a lot of input in the book cover process. Did you have any input in yours or get involved at all in the process?


I'm so glad you love the covers!!! I do too!! Joel, my cover designer, is amazingly talented and I tell everyone that I am CLEARLY his favorite author because those covers are so beautiful, but honestly Joel could design cereal boxes and make them stunning. I'm so so so lucky to have him.

I would have to agree. :) What genre do you normally grab your reading from? 


I love suspense/thrillers, but I also do a fair amount of contemporaries. I just finished Landline by Rainbow Rowell and it was amazing.

I like that you read what you write. Do you think you’ll continue to write YA suspense/thrillers, or do you think you might branch into other sub-genres? 


I would love to stay with thrillers, but I also have a few ideas for a YA historical and a YA horror.

Ooooh! I would love to read those stories! :) Can you give us a teaser for the third book, Trust Me, or tell us a little about what you’re working on now? 


Just finished Trust Me and I'm shockingly happy with how it turned out. This is very weird for me because I hate everything I write, which is both hilarious and pathetic of me. Anyway, all of Wick's lies in Remember Me come back to haunt her in Trust Me. There are more hackers, new bad guys, and Wick's father makes a pretty major appearance. Oh, yeah, there's also LOTS more Griff and Milo :)

I can definitely handle more of Griff and Milo. ;) Thanks so much for answering my questions, Romily! You're welcome here anytime. :)

    You did really well :) and I'm happy that you managed to read so much. For me it was kinda meh, because I felt kinda slumpy but I read a few. You can check my wrap up if you want :) It was really fun to participate in the read-a-thon.

  14. I'll be preparing more for this next year too. Hopefully I'll have less tours going on and a clearer schedule. It was kind of crazy, but I was ahead enough with everything that it still worked. Glad you'll participate next year! :)

  17. I got so busy studying for my nursing school test I didn't read much last week. Overall I finished two books, though my goal was five. :( Still, probably (unfortunately) tests are more important than reading at this point in my life. :)

  18. Alright, thanks! :)
    Now I was able to get an extra entry in the Rafflecopter giveaway with my wrap-up post! :)

  19. Thanks for hosting this Tressa! I'll plan on next year, and maybe not schedule as much around the dates so I can do a little better! :)

  20. I just posted my Wrap-Up. I had a wonderful time and I'm impressed at not only how many books you completed, but the fact that you visited the blogs of every participant (mine more than once!) and tweeted regularly. I wish I had been able to spend more time in the social aspect as well as reading. The one thing I plan to do differently next year is to choose shorter books from my TBR list.

    You did so great! not just in reading but hosting and commenting on so many peoples updates. Thanks for that we really appreciate it and I can't wait for the next one!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm glad you appreciated that. It does take time, but I feel as a host that I should be stopping by. :) Glad I'll be seeing you next year too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. It was great! Don't know that I'll always be able to do that, but it was fun nonetheless. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Tests are important, especially in nursing school. Lots of hours and hard work. I would say two is still pretty good, considering. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's me too. It kind of sneaked up on me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's one reason I didn't choose to read Dreams of Gods and Monsters - that book is thick! I didn't get a lot done on Twitter yesterday, but otherwise I liked being on there and on everyone's blogs. :) Glad you had a great time!

    ReplyDelete
  27. This was AWESOME. I posted my wrap up and the winner of my challenge! YAY! So much fun. I cannot wait till next year to do this again. I loved this challenge. I loved visiting other blogs! I didn't get to visit as many as I would have wanted but it was so fun. Please let me do another challenge next year...maybe even the same one. I loved it! Thanks Tressa.
