Blog Tour | How to Get Your Heart Broken by Rose Fall

How to Get Your Heart Broken


Release Date: March 21st 2016
Genre: YA Contemporary


Summary:



A self-proclaimed cynic, Eli is unsurprised by her boyfriend’s betrayal. Yet, its impact goes beyond what she realizes; a cruel bet, an array of secrets, and a thousand lessons not yet learned teach her how to trust again as an unlikely boy shows her a kind of love she never knew existed.
After Eli finds her boyfriend cheating on her, she seeks an escape. She heads to the beach to spend the summer before college with her two best friends. When Eli is unable to move past the betrayal, the girls devise a distraction; a bet about their handsome neighbor. Yet their thoughtless competition goes too far and their friendships are tested as they began to wonder how much they really know about each other and themselves. In the chaos, they manage to learn the truth about love, self-acceptance, and the journey back from rock bottom.

Author Interview:

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was fan fiction. It was about One Tree Hill which is still one of my favorite shows in the world. I used to write it by hand and then give it to one of my best friends to publish online, because we didn’t have internet at home. Medieval times…

Who are your favorite authors?
KIM HOLDEN! I’ve never before felt the way I did while reading Bright Side and Gus. It didn’t feel like reading a book, the devastation was so real. I feel like I came out of that a different person! I also love John Green, Lauren Oliver, Rainbow Rowell…

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
One of the mottos I live by is a quote I read once: “Don’t take life too seriously; no one makes it out alive anyway.” My friends happen to think I have a pretty morbid sense of humor, but to me this idea is very liberating. It means I’m free to do whatever the h-e-double hockey sticks I want!  None of the mistakes I make are going to bring about the end of the world, and since I already know how this story ends (with death) there’s no need to worry about screwing it up…Yes, my friends are right.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?

I certainly have no shortage of hobbies. There are two categories for me; there are those hobbies I pick up and put down almost as quickly and then there are those I'm relatively committed to. In the past the former has included fencing, knitting, yoga, running, swimming, you can probably see a pattern with sports. Also on this list is ballroom dancing but that's something I would like to pick back up because I actually really enjoyed it. The other category includes baking, songwriting, reading, and travelling. 

Quick. Something weird…
I've always dreamed about having a cooking show and sometimes when I'm cooking alone I talk to myself and explain all the steps, pretending there's a camera there.

What is your writing process?
It depends on the story. I have one short story called "Easy as 1, 2, 3" that came about in that strange state that's somewhere between dreaming and awake. Once I woke up all I had to do was write it! A lot of them begin with "What if..." then I play out a loose sequence in my head and try to decide if it's interesting enough that I would read it. Sometimes I'll write down a quote or song lyric I found interesting and months later revisit it to see what comes to me.

Where can your readers connect with you?
I have a blog, rosesarecool.wordpress.com for anyone that wants to leave comments, questions, pictures of their cats…

I also have a twitter (@rosesarecool) though I'd be lying if I said I'm an active twitterer.
 A word that you use way too often?
“Absurd.” Because everything is absurd.
