How aka details: This is the longish part.
At the Bloggers Forum, we had a Q&A with Becca. When I was called on to ask her a question, Becca told me: "Have we met/talked before? You look familiar." The fangirldom commenced. I admitted that I was a big fan since waaay back and was a member of Fallenarcangel, the official fan site for the Hush, Hush Saga. So stoked that she remembers me! On to the details, *coughs*,I learned the following:
- When Becca first wrote Hush, Hush, Patch was not a fallen angel. He was just a normal boy based on a real boy that she knew way back. Patch had a dark secret and Becca didn't know it when she first wrote the draft. She figured out that he was a fallen angel since fallen angels are the original bad boys.
- The hardest book she wrote was Crescendo. Her editor made her delete all but 25 pages of the draft.
- *teaser from Sapphire Skies* - quoted from The Bookaholic Blurbs
It tells a story about a girl named Stella from Philadelphia and she witnesses a brutal crime. She's put to a witness protection program in Nebraska. She resents her situation and just wanted to get home. However, she's beginning to fall in love with this handsome cowboy who lives next door. So she's torn to stay for the cowboy or keep moving so the bad guys wouldn't find her.
