Team Human Chat Tonight

UPDATE: This chat already happened. But you can read the transcript here. It’s pretty funny, I think.


Just a reminder that I’m doing a chat tonight with with Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan, co-authors of the upcoming book, Team Human.

Here are some ways in which the chat may be interesting:

1) Sarah and Justine wrote the novel together in secret. They didn’t even tell their agents! (Sort of like eloping.)

2) It was the first novel either of them had collaborated on.

3) They have very different writing styles. (Sarah outlines everything. Justine wings it.)

4) They live on different continents. (Sarah was in Ireland during the writing, and Justine in NYC.)

5) And finally, the book itself is a paranormal romance, but it’s not about a girl who’s in love with the vampire. It’s about her best friend . . .

Basically, Team Human is the story what happens when your best friend falls in love, and then starts ignoring you. Except when she’s telling you in endless detail how amazing her new boyfriend is, or when she comes to cry on your shoulder when things aren’t working out. In short, TH is about how friendship can suffer when love is in the air, and about how much worse the suffering gets when the new boyfriend is a gorgeous immortal bloodsucker, and wants to turn your BFF into one too.

So we’ll probably be discussing the genre of paranormals overall, and how Sarah and Justine wanted to shake the usual formula up a bit.

But when does this chat happen?

Tonight! (Sunday, July 8)

  3. @4: Totally agreed: Just checking my MOUSTACHIO. And riding chocolate airplanes and hiring elves to shine my shoes. Outlining = kerblooey. Hah! I wish I was there! I didn’t read all of it, but I got Scott’s sense of humor for sure.
    It was blazing hot on the east coast recently, but thankfully my airplane didn’t melt. There wasn’t a drop of chocolate to eat on it, though.

  4. Okay, WHAT is everybody talking about?! Was this on the chat? Cause Scott? Being immature? Chocolate airplanes? Shoe shining elves? QUESTION MARKS???????????????? Though right now I really would like to eat a chocolate airplane….

  5. @6: I just clicked on the transcript “here” near the top of the post. You can read the chat, and Scott is hilarious. So yes, it was on the chat, but you can still see it after it’s happened.
