Ally Carter Q&A

March 4, 2015

ally carter q&a  - theheartofabookbloggerRecently, Ally Carter has participated in a couple twitter chats to promote her new series, Embassy Row, and I thought I’d share with you all of my questions she answered. Ally Carter is the author of I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You, Heist Society, and All Fall Down. This is the first in a series of author Q&As I’ll be posting.

  • Jordan: Which character are you the most like?
  • Ally Carter: I’m 1/3 Cam, Kat, & Grace.
  • J: Who are your favorite minor characters to write?
  • AC: I’m a sucker for a fun crew of sidekicks and heart all of mine.
  • J: Which character do you love to hate?
  • AC: I have a love/hate relationship with Grace’s grandpa.‬
  • J: Which YA protagonist (from any series) do you think would get along best with Grace?
  • AC: Grace has so many issues, she would have a hard time making friends.‬
  • J: Which characters would you want in the trench with you? Left side (strongest), right side (smartest), & behind you (who you trust the most “to have your back”).
  • AC: I think all my characters are pretty good in the trenches! I’d take any of them.
  • J: Did Megan’s mom attend Gallagher? I totally think so even though we’ve met her yet.
  • AC: You never know…
  • J: Please tell me there will be more Alexei/Grace in Embassy Row 2.
  • AC: You mean skinny dipping? Because there may be skinny dipping.
  • J: Will you release any deleted scenes from All Fall Down?
  • AC: There are some bonus scenes available now!
  • J: Did you know AFD’s major plot turner from the beginning or was it a surprise that came while writing?
  • AC: It came while writing & then it took awhile to commit
  • J: You’ve said you’d like to write more, but do you have an actual idea/direction for a 4th Heist Society?
  • AC: I know exactly what it would be
  • J: Which book was the hardest to write?
  • AC: Sequels are always the hardest. Always.
  • J: Which cover is your favorite?
  • AC: I kinda love the Aussie All Fall Down.

all-fall-down

  • J: 
Do you watch the 100?
  • AC: I do!
  • J: Were you able to see The DUFF yet? I thought it was super cute & funny!
  • AC: Not yet! Hopefully tomorrow if the snow/ice holds off.‬

Thanks for answering all my questions, Ally. These twitter chats are always fun. Be sure to check out her new book, All Fall Down, in stores now.
