So, if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you’ll already know that last Monday I had the privilege of attending the Melissa de la Cruz book tour for The Ring and the Crown! It was a blast! Jackie from The Hardcover Obsession and I carpooled down to Etobicoke together, where we joined Melissa, some of the lovely ladies from Hachette Canada, and our fellow bloggers for some delicious appetizers and drinks before heading to the book signing.
Hanging out with Melissa was a lot of fun, and gave us bloggers the perfect time to plague her with our many questions about The Ring and the Crown. Jackie managed to record most of the questions, and did an AMAZING job at recapping Melissa’s answers on her own blog! In fact, Jackie did such an AMAZING job, that it seems almost pointless for me to do a recap of my own! So instead, I will defer you to Jackie’s blog to discover the answers to some of your burning questions like “What prompted Melissa to write The Ring and the Crown?” “What was it like writing from 5 different perspectives?” and “Why did you choose to end the book in the way that you did?”
The only thing that I can add is that meeting Melissa was as an absolute delight! She was funny, sweet, and very interesting to listen too! If you haven’t read my review for The Ring and the Crown yet then check it out! I really enjoyed it and I’m already looking forward to the sequel!
I also loved seeing some familiar faces and meeting some awesome new bloggers at the event! Check out some of their blogs below!
Till next time!
