Interview & Giveaways: This Tiny Perfect World by Lauren Gibaldi

Interview with Author Lauren Gibaldi

Lauren Gibaldi is a public librarian who’s been, among other things, a magazine editor, high school English teacher, bookseller, and circus aerialist (seriously). She has a BA in Literature and Master’s in Library and Information Studies. She lives in Orlando, Florida with her husband and daughter. Her books include THE NIGHT WE SAID YES, AUTOFOCUS, and the forthcoming THIS TINY PERFECT WORLD.

What’s more fun to write?
the world or the characters?: For me the characters. I love learning about them, finding out their little likes and dislikes, and what makes them...them. 

Do you plan everything or just let the story flow? 

Mostly let the story flow. This is the first book I’ve written that was fully plotted (as I had to prepare a synopsis for my editor). It made writing a little harder, because I had to stick to the original outline, but also easier because I knew what would happen next. Obviously things did change in the process, but for the better. I hope!

Do your characters ever want to take over the story? 

No, not really. 

What is your favourite food? 

Pasta!

Do you listen to music while writing? 

I can’t listen to music while writing--I’ll end up singing along. 

What are three words that describe you? 

Ummm short, happy, librarian 

What is your favorite quote from This Tiny Perfect World? 

“I want to make millions of decisions and revisions.” I won’t mention context.


About the Book
This Tiny Perfect World
by Lauren Gibaldi
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: February 27, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Synopsis:
Penny loves her small-town Florida life, and she has her future mapped out. She’s going to community college after graduation to stay close to home and her best friend, Faye. She’ll take over the family diner that her dad has been managing since her mother died. And one day, she’ll marry her high school sweetheart, Lo-gan. 

But when she unexpectedly lands a scholarship to a prestigious summer theater camp, she is thrust into a world of competition and self-doubt. And suddenly, her future gets a little hazy. As she meets new friends, including Chase, a talented young actor with big-city dreams, she begins to realize that maybe the life every-one (including her) expects her to lead is not the one she was meant to have.
