Interview with Gae Polisner and Geoff Herbach



As you know I always support the Class of 2k11 and one day on facebook I saw Gae mention that she was hoping to build a buzz for her book. I said well if you dress like a bee I will giveaway a copy of your book. She said that sounded like a great idea so I went further and said if she could get Geoff to dress like a flower I would give away his book! That somehow turned into me wearing a flower and Gae wearing bee antennas and both agreeing to do a video interview with me. I'm really lucky to have them on my blog! This will be a series because there was so much great information that I want to share with you and at the end I will be giving away copies of their books. I hope you enjoy the videos and check out The Pull of Gravity and Stupid Fast.

  7. I'm definitely going to continue watching this video interviews series. I've never seen this on any other YA blog (I'm not subscribed to many so yours is very special =) and this was awesome! Loved seeing all of your faces, reactions, and interactions. And believe it or not, this makes me want to read their books even more. Seeing and hearing about them celebrating their books, seeing their expressions when they talk about their labors of love and BREAKDANCING in glee. This was awesome.

  8. Caroline, believe me, honey, it was all one big blooper. :) I was hellbent on shaking my antennae(I felt inadequate that I hadn't dressed in FULL BEE COSTUME) which makes me look like a bobblehead doll.

    And, wait, how has covergirl seen the Breakdancing part?!!? That hasn't come yet. Do you have the full up somewhere, Cari?!

    The bottom line is this: I love Cari, Cari LOVES Geoff, Geoff loves me, I LURVES Geoff *swoons* and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Cari and she loves me, and I think that comes through in all the silliness. If you guys have not read STUPID FAST, go! Go buy that book NOW. Geoff's voice/writing is brilliant. I aspire to write like him. And if you know teen boys, tell them about the book.

    That is all.
    well for now.
    we all know I'll be back.

    (I may be overcaffeinated)
