Welcome to Day 5 of the Egmont debut tour! I’m delighted to be joining my fellow Egmont debut authors Alex Bracken, Chelsea Campbell, Bree Despain, Lindsay Eland, and Kristina McBride for a fun interview series (with giveaways!). Check out the individual posts to see what goodies we’re giving away periodically throughout the week.
So please join me in welcoming my final guest, the hilarious and fabulously cool…
Chelsea M. Campbell
Chelsea Campbell grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where it rains a lot. And then rains some more. She finished her first novel when she was twelve, sent it out, and promptly got rejected. Since then she’s written many more novels, earned a degree in Latin and Ancient Greek, become an obsessive knitter and fiber artist, and started a collection of glass grapes. As a kid, Chelsea read lots of adult books, but now that she’s an adult herself (at least according to her driver’s license), she loves books for kids and teens. Besides writing, studying ancient languages, and collecting useless objects, Chelsea is a pop culture fangirl at heart and can often be found rewatching episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, leveling up in World of Warcraft, or spending way too much time on Livejournal and Facebook.
The Rise of Renegade X
Going to extreme lengths (and heights), The Rise of Renegade X chronicles one boy’s struggles with the villainous and heroic pitfalls of growing up.

1. THE UNEXPECTED: What is the one thing people would be most surprised to learn about you?
I can bend my thumbs back so they’re flat!
(Note from Kay: Owwww!)
As a kid, probably The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I used to make my mom read that to me SO many times. I’ve seen the old BBC version a million times and the cartoon version. (I was so excited for the movie that came out a few years ago–I’d get all teared up every time there was a commercial–and then I was really disappointed with it. It was an okay movie, but it wasn’t The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.) I can’t say exactly how it’s impacted me, but quotes from it run through my head a lot, and it’s just one of those things from childhood that colors how I think and is a big part of my experience database to draw from.
Don’t go to community college!
Here’s where I’ll be sharing some fun stuff this week:
(NOTE: I’ve got giveaways going over on four of those blogs!)
In honor of Chelsea’s feature, she is graciously giving away RRX swag. (US/Canada only)
To celebrate the coolness that is THE RISE OF RENEGADE X, comment below with your idea of the coolest superhero you can think of. It can be a well-known superhero or one you made up yourself. Winner to be announced here next week! Good luck!
