Around the World in 80 Kisses Smooch Stop #33

Write a Haiku about your book
Four best friends travel
Learning about life and love
And kissing cute boys
What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?
It’s okay not to be what everyone wants you to be.
Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?
The theme song for The International Kissing Club would be Young Blood by The Naked and Famous. It’s an anthem to youth and having fun and making mistakes, everything Piper, Cassidy, Mei and Izzy do in spades.
What’s one piece of advice you would give to aspiring authors?
It’s better to finish your book, than to get it perfect. If you have an idea, write and write and write until it’s done, then you can go back and fix it. But if you continually stop to tinker with it, trying to make it perfect, you’ll never finish. I know too many writers who start and never finish a story.
What is your dream cast for your book?
Oooh, this is a fun one.
Piper: Anna Kendrick
Cassidy: Amanda Michalka
Mei: Brenda Song (though she’s not Chinese)
Izzy: Emma Watson
Please tell us in one sentence only why we should read you book.
You should read The International Kissing Club because it fun and flirty, not dark and depressing.

The International Kissing Club

The International Kissing Club by Ivy Adams is the story of four best friends: Piper, Cassidy, Mei, and Izzy–the misfits of Paris, Texas. Their whole lives, they’ve dreamed of escaping small-town life and seeing the world. So when Piper is the victim of an embarrassing prank that goes viral online, she gets the idea that the girls should escape via the school’s international exchange program, in search of fun, love and internet redemption.

Emily McKay, Shellee Roberts and Tracy Deebs write under the pseudonym Ivy Adams. They shop, gossip and watch movies in Austin, Texas.
