[Blog Tour] Interview with Tristina Wright, Author of 27 Hours!

27 Hours by Tristina Wright
Publication Date:  October 3, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother's shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon's darkest secret.

They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

27 Hours is a sweeping, thrilling story featuring a stellar cast of queer teenagers battling to save their homes and possibly every human on Sahara as the clock ticks down to zero.


1) What inspired you to write 27 Hours?

Lots of different things, but among them this idea that things aren’t always what they seem. With the original gargoyles mythos, we have creatures that come to life at night. Some remnant of that is still in the book, but one of the biggest things is the idea that even surface appearance isn’t the full story and to never trust anything. 

2) Which character was the most fun to write? the hardest?

Braeden is probably the most fun to write. His sense of humor is snappy, and he’s very smart and earnest.
Trick is probably the hardest because his sarcasm wants to be Braeden’s sarcasm, so I have to work at finding his voice. 

3) Were there any songs or books that helped write 27 Hours? 

4) What inspired the cover for 27 Hours? It looks so beautiful!

Isn’t it gorgeous? The designer is Fiona Jayde and I had nothing to do with it. It was all Entangled. I was told later my hair partly influenced the color scheme, though!

5) Any tips for aspiring authors?

Don’t ever stop being afraid. Fear means you care. The day you stop being afraid is the day you stop caring.
