Holly Cupala Interview + Giveaway!

Thank you, Page, for inviting me to your blog to talk about Don’t Breathe a Word (coming next week!), and hello to readers! Page asked a few questions for me to answer with the Don’t Breathe a Word playlist lyrics—some of the answers may be cryptic, but I’ll do my best!

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

How long have you been writing?
“You won't be seventeen forever
And we can get away with this tonight”
~Seventeen Forever, Metro Station

How are your two books different?  Same?
“But don't you know who you are,
What's been done for you?
Yeah don't you know who you are?”
~You Are More, Tenth Avenue North

Which character have you identified most with?

She’s searching for no one (but herself)
Her eyes turn to green and she seems to be happy that she is her
And this time I think you'll know”
~You’re Not Alone, Saosin

What do you read in your spare time?
“I’m looking for a place
Searching for a face
Is there anybody here I know”
~I’m with You, Avril Lavigne

Favorite part of living in the Northwest?
“Take me to the city
Let me hear the crowds and the screams
All the flashes all that noise
And this is the night we'll be free”
~Frontload, Freezepop

Best part about being an author?
“This is your life, is it everything that you dreamed
That it would be when the world was younger,
And you had everything to lose?”
~ This is Your Life, Switchfoot

Any author you’ve loved meeting?
“You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down”
~I Will Follow You into the Dark, Death Cab for Cutie

Do you still keep in touch with baby board friends (the ones who helped inspire Tell Me a Secret)?
“In the name of love,
What more in the name of love.”
~Pride (In the Name of Love), U2

And now for the Giveaway!  

There will be a weekly international winner for one copy of Don't Breathe a Word!
If winner is US you will receive a signed copy from Holly!

If winner is international you will receive a copy from book depository!

You get one initial entry just by filling out the form!!

*There will be one book given per day, drawn weekly. Everything entered by Saturday night will be put into a drawing on Sunday. So be sure and visit the other tour stops!
*The points DO accumulate, meaning entries put in for week one are still going to count for the drawings in weeks 2 and 3. (This is to reward those who follow/enter from the start, and doesn't punish them later because their entries are more spread out)

*There is one automatic entry
*For every post someone comments on, it is one entry.
*They will have to link to the blog post they commented on.
*There is an extra entry if they tweet, facebook, do a blog post or somehow include on their blog. It is one for each of these, but only 1 per type (meaning they can't tweet every day and get points for it... its just one tweet)
*They need to fill out the form EACH time they do something to enter. If there is no link, the entry does not count (beyond the first initial entry, that you can just enter to win from)


  1. I've been following this blog tour - I desperately want this book, it sounds SO good!
    Is this playlist one that the author listened to while writing the book? It rocks!
    Thank you for the awesome giveaway opportunity!
    Gena Robertson

  2. I love interviews with lyrics. And those are some great ones. Love seeing Death Cab For Cutie on any list <3

    Cannot. Wait. for. Holly's. Book.

  3. What a great playlist. Spans many areas! Switchfoot is great!

  4. What a fun way to answer questions! I've seen it done with book line answers but the lyrics are fun too! It was fun trying to figure out what she meant :P

  5. Page, thank you so much for hosting me - and for stumping me with your questions! That was fun. I really appreciate it and am glad you all are liking the playlist!

  6. I found out about this book a few days ago and I'm going back to all the blog tour stops to know more about it.

    I never gave Death Cab for cutie a chance but now that I've read Creed sang one of their songs, I looked them up and love them!

  7. I love this playlist! Everything from Death Cab to Metro Station. Not to mention it's my absolute favorite Death Cab song of all time :]

  8. Haha! Very cryptic! I haven't heard a single one of these songs, though. But I do love Avril Lavigne:)



I love comments!
