Authors Are Rockstars - Amy Tintera
Amy Tintera is most definitely a ROCKSTAR! Her debut, Reboot, was so full of romance, suspense, and action. The romance was so adorably sweet, the story was so fast-paced and interesting, the the action scenes were breathtaking. Plus she loves Back to the Future! Do not miss out on this book!
I wanted to read Reboot because I saw PolandbananasBOOKS do a review of it on YouTube, plus it looked really interesting and like a great idea! So I bought it off Amazon, zipped right through it, and loved it. Not an amazing story, I know, but good enough, right? ;P

Goodreads / Purchase
1. When did you start reading and writing?
I started reading at a very young age because my mom is a big reader. So there were always books around and we would go to the library almost every week. I was the kind of kid who read a book a day! Because I was such a big reader I became interested in writing very young, and I was writing novels by the time I was 12.
2. What were you like as a teen?
Shy! I’ve always been an introvert, but I was even more shy as a teen. But I found a great group of friends and I was on the dance team my junior and senior year of high school, which was a fun experience. I was also pretty busy, because of dance team, work (Old Navy, then DSW), and writing books. I’m not sure how I kept up with everything!
3. What is your favorite genre to read at the moment?
Definitely YA, and within YA I love sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal and contemporary. And some historical occasionally! I’m a big fan of the YA category and ready widely in it.
1. When and how did you get the idea for Reboot?
I got the idea for REBOOT the day before Thanksgiving, 2010 (it’s crazy I remember the exact day, but I do!). I really got the idea for Wren first – she was in my head, saying she’d been dead for 178 minutes, and I built the idea of REBOOT around her.
2. Where did you write Reboot?
Everywhere, honestly. I wrote the first draft entirely by hand, partly because I could take the notebook with me wherever I went. I wrote on my lunch breaks, on my yoga mat while waiting for class to start, in bed, at coffee shops.
3. Did you have any say in the cover design?
I sent my editor some other covers I liked, but I have no talent for art or design. I basically just said “I want something awesome!” and luckily HarperTeen is great at doing awesome covers.
4. Is there another book in the works? If so, what can we expect?
Yes! The sequel to REBOOT comes out May 6, 2014. It’s a duology, meaning there are only two books in the series, so everything is wrapped up in this book. And all I’ll say is that the sequel picks up exactly where REBOOT left off!
