Blog Tour and Giveaway: Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott

Welcome to the blog tour for Violet Grenade by Victoria Scott! I adored this book and I highly recommend it. Check out my interview with Victoria Scott, and enter to win this book!

The Interview:

Alyssa: Hi and welcome to The Eater of Books! So glad you could join me today. =) Congratulations on the publication of Violet Grenade! By my count, this is your eighth published novel since 2013? Do you SLEEP? What helps your creative process so you keep going and don’t burn out?

VS: That’s a good question, because I’m working on two hours of sleep today. Honestly, if it weren’t for readers cheering me on, I’d be in a ditch somewhere. 

Alyssa: How was writing this book different compared to writing your other books, especially with it being a completely different genre than your usual? 

VS: This one is much darker, and much more lyrical in style. I usually write with more snark and humor, but I wrote the way I wanted to with this one, and it felt natural. 

Alyssa: A somewhat related question – what was the most difficult thing about writing this book?

VS: Keeping the suspense going without wearing readers out. It’s a difficult thing to balance, and the first time I had to tackle something like that. 

Alyssa: How did you come up with the title of this book?

VS: It’s a combination of Violet, which is the highest ranking Flower in the house Domino goes to live in, and Grenade, which represents Domino as a person, and specifically her second personality, who is quite explosive. 

Alyssa: What are some YA psychological thrillers that you recommend to readers?

VS: Start with Gone Girl and Girl on a Train, obviously. Then move onto In the Blood by Lisa Unger! 

Alyssa: What is one message that you’d love young readers to take away from Violet Grenade?

VS: Be careful who you mess with. 

Alyssa: My last question – what’s next for publication? Will there be anything to follow Violet Grenade? Or entirely new projects?

VS: I’m working on a new young adult book that I can’t talk about too much yet. But I should be able to share with you guys very soon! 

Alyssa: Thank you so much, and best of luck with everything!

But after suffering weeks of bullying and unearthing the madam’s secrets, Domino decides to leave. It’ll be harder than she thinks, though, because the madam doesn’t like to lose inventory.
