Today I have an interview with Author of Going Under, Georgia Coates! Thanks so much for being here with us today 🙂
Thank you having me as a guest. It is a pleasure to be featured today.
1.Describe Going Under in a tweet. (140 characters or less)
Intense romance between an ambitious boy from the wrong side of the tracks and a girl struggling to find herself outside her perfect world.
2.I love reading books from a guys point of view. Do you think it’s easier to write a girl’s POV or a guy?
Girl’s POV is so much easier. When you write from a guy’s POV, you have to choose if you’re going to write the way a guy would actually be thinking or if you’ll tone it down. What does this mean? Let’s face it. If I wrote the way a guy actually thought about women and sex, we probably wouldn’t like his character very much. I have to tone it down. A lot. And sometimes this comes off as unrealistic. There is a fine line to walk and finding the niche to it can be difficult.
3.Which of your characters do you relate to the most and why?
I am a cross between Claire and Payton. I find it difficult to deter from what my friends and family expect from me, so I completely understood that part of Claire’s character.
Most people that know me think I’m very humorous. I connected with Payton a lot because of her wise crack capabilities. I alway enjoy a great laugh.
4.Who are some of your favorite authors?
I really dig Shelly Crane. Her Significance Series is so FABULOUS!
I HEART: Quinn Loftis, M. Leighton, Abbi Glines, Jamie McGuire, Autumn Dawn, Amy Bartol, Angeline Kace, Fisher Amelie. The list could go on and on.
Me: Such a great list! I have Shelly’s books coming up on my list to review! Now I can’t wait 🙂 and I LOVE Abbi Glines, I have read every single one of her books!
5.If you could go on your dream vacation, where would you go?
Tahiti, I think. I want to stay in one of those little thatch covered huts over the water.
Me: Man, that would be so nice!!
6.What is your biggest pet peeve? (writing or general)
It’s a writing peeve. It’s when I run out of inspiring music and I can’t find new stuff. Drives me crazy!
7.If we had an YA author talent show, what would your talent be? 🙂
Sleeping In Late. I can “lay up with it” (maybe that’s just a Mississippi slang word) when I get the opportunity, which isn’t often.
Me: Oh I can sleep in with the best of them! I am a total night owl
Jessie Boone is a self proclaimed bad boy and doesn’t march to the beat of anyone’s drum, but his own. Growing up in less than desirable circumstances has made him no stranger to the hard knock life and his determination to leave it behind is fierce. When he finds himself transferred to East Franklin High School, he sees his opportunity to use his athletic ability to snag a college football scholarship, but Forbes Henderson, the player Jessie means to replace isn’t giving up his spot willingly. In fact, Forbes is willing to go to extreme measures to retain his place as first string quarterback. When Forbes’ malicious plan to injure his replacement fails, Jessie is furious and determined to show him he messed with the wrong person; not only is he going to take the position of first string quarterback, he’s going to take his girl, too.
Claire Deveraux is perfection at it’s best. She is beautiful, intelligent and unaware she just became Jessie Boone’s conquest as revenge against her boyfriend, Forbes Henderson. Like her flawless performance as the perfect daughter and student, Claire’s production of being the perfect girlfriend has everyone fooled, except Jessie Boone, and she fears this tattooed bad boy will see her secret desire to explore his crude threats and promises to rock her perfect world. If she decides to give in to one uninhibited moment with Jessie, will she learn too late that it was all an act of vengeance or will Jessie learn the taste of first love is sweeter than that of revenge?
And now, the beautiful Georgia has agreed to provide an ecopy of Going Under to someone! This is international 🙂
