this is kind of embarrassing, but i don’t know who my title credit goes to! i was reading a post about the montgomery’s a long while back that talked about how they had both been born with silver spoons in their mouths. it seemed pretty fitting to me and it’s been stuck in my head ever since.
Montgomery kind of day, isn’t it? I love this. I love familiiiiiies, and I am so pleased Rusty’s deeps in Untold inspired this. ;)
Nice to see the quote with two Kami pictures: one of dreaminess and one of determination. This is one of the reasons I wrote Unspoken: I wanted to talk about love stories, and the way people perceive them (romance!), and how difficult it can be to imagine yourself in one, if you don’t feel you fit into the narrative. I think learning to retell fairytales to yourself, about yourself, makes you braver and more self-sufficient. ;)
Jared and Kami for Unbound. Advanced Happy Valentine’s Day, and excuse the hair gone wild theme and Jared’s uncanny resemblance to Josh Hutcherson (Peeta baby!) in this piece. I modeled him after Max Irons and he ended up looking like Josh LMAO.
sarahreesbrennan This is my very very late thank you for how awesome Untold was. I can’t wait for the next one! Your stories really inspire me to draw, which is very rare for considering I read a lot of YA. Hope you include Toronto in your next book tour, would love to meet you in person!
Thank YOU for such a beautimous picture and I am so happy you liked Untold! I would love to come to Toronto, I have never been and I love Canada GENERALLY. (What up, Vancouver, you put a bookshop and a cupcake store and a pool on the same street, EXCELLENT PRIORITIES. What up, Montreal, you had a taxi driver who drove in zig-zags to avoid the alligators, and I was into it.) I know it is a cliche but Canadians have been in general SUPER NICE to me and so I like them. I am a simple soul. Keep your fingers crossed for me, sweet Torontians, I should like to be with you!
