Smart Chicks Kick It 2.0: Interview with Rachel Caine

Dolls: What made you decide to participate in the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour this year?

RC: I was lucky enough to be part of the tour last year, and it was a great experience — not just getting to know my fellow authors, which was wonderful, but also to meet an amazing number of enthusiastic and passionate readers. It’s a visionary kind of event, bringing together writers of different publishing houses and experiences, all with a common goal — and it brings together readers of different authors and series as well. It’s a beautiful thing!

Dolls: Do you have a favorite memory of last year’s tour?

RC: I think walking down the stairs at the inaugural Austin event and hearing that incredible response from the crowd packed into the store was staggering! I’ve never seen anything like it at a book signing before. People were so excited and responsive, and it really vindicated our convictions that YA authors appearing together could make events like this possible.

But on a personal level, I think it was meeting an entire three generations of one family — grandmother, mother and daughter — who were all reading my series and loving it!

Dolls: What are you most looking forward to on the tour this go-around?

RC: I think word spread last year how fabulous the events were, and I expect we’ll see even more crowds this time, which is fantastic! We’re also working in appearances at the Northwest Bookfest in Seattle, which is new for us. And we have some new writers joining, so more people I can meet (and fangirl) as well!

Dolls: One thing is for certain … there are some amazing authors on this tour with awesome books… Do you find time to read books by any of your fellow authors on tour? If so, who?

RC: Luckily, I’m a little ahead of the curve on that one — and yes, my time is pretty limited on reading for my own pleasure! But I was already fans of Melissa Marr, Holly Black, Kelley Armstrong, and many more on the tour. I’m catching up fast and intend to have read at least one of each tour members’ books before we start to hit the road together! It’s a true privilege to be on this tour and getting to know each and every one of them, believe me.
