I asked: Do you have any predictions for the upcoming books?
Alexa: Well, I can think of three things that may happen: (1) the gender stereotypes are going to be completely overturned and challenged by Adelice, (2) more people are going to find out the truth as it was exposed in the last book and (3) Adelice will be reunited with her sister. There’s, of course, going to be more romance!
Rachel: Alexa needs to stop stealing my answers. Haha. I also agree that Adelice will be reunited in some way with her sister but then I think she will be taken away from her. I hope Gennifer Albin doesn’t pull a Suzanne Collins with Adelice and her sister - I’d love for them to be able to hug in the end. I also think there is going to be a ton of more romance in books 2 and 3 as the love triangle has just begun in CREWEL.
Me: I’m hoping for a sisterly reunion as well, though, I don’t know why she didn’t just snatch her sister away before making her grand escape, like she did with that room! Less time canoodling and more time saving your sister, Adelice! I know that there will be more love triangle drama in the second book, but I really wish there wouldn’t! I would love to see more of what Earth looks like and whether people there have survived the war.
A.J: I have a feeling that by the time the series is finished Arras will be no more and people will be trying to rebuild on Earth. I think that with the second book the trio will find out that Earth is probably not exactly what they learned it was, they will maybe come across people still living there, and I think their entire idea of the world they live in will begin to unravel. I’d be very interested in seeing their adventures on Earth.

Rachel asks: CREWEL was pitched as “The Hunger Games meets Mad Men” in its Publisher’s Marketplace deal. How accurate do you think this pitch is and why or why not do you feel that way?
AJ asks: Did you find the concept of weaving and all it involves to be easy to grasp or a little confusing? At what point in the book did you totally understand it?
