A Day with Abbi Glines

by |June 12, 2013

Hot footballers, coffee obsession and song-writing – all in a day’s work for bestselling author Abbi Glines

As you may have noticed from my recent review of Because of Low, I have just been introduced to the wonderful world of New Adult and, specifically, the work of Abbi Glines. Yesterday, I had the distinct pleasureabbi lunch table of meeting her, interviewing her (podcast to follow soon) and even dining with her. Below is a brief summation of what I learnt in our time together:

– Abbi Glines LOVES Friday Night Lights – but was not happy with the ending.

– Abbi writes REALLY fast – however, while writing, will completely shut herself away from the world and put in 18 hour days.

– Australian coffee by far trumps American coffee – to the point where Abbi will choose a cappuccino over dessertfriday-night-lights.

– Bathers’ Pavillion at Balmoral makes AMAZING food…

– Abbi is multi-talented – she wrote a completely lovely song for Rush and Blaire (from the Too Far series) and had it produced by the same man who was behind the soundtrack of a very successful vampire franchise…and yes, the song is available to buy now (listen below).

– Abbi’s Australian tour was brought about thanks to a campaign launched by her fans – gotta love an author who listens to her readers!lunch 2

– Do not have wine with lunch and expect your afternoon back at work to be easy – especially when you’ve been lulled by the dulcet tones of an Alabama accent.

Many thanks to Simon & Schuster for taking John and I out for lunch and to Abbi for spending the day with us!
