Being invisible 
Katherine wasn't satisfied with Luke's one-word answers, so she had a little talk with him:

Sunset Half-full
Living with mistakes
Being invisible

K: Luke, I don’t think a string of one-word answers was what they were after.
L: Hey, read them all together. Doesn’t it look like a poem?
K: Ummm
L: If you squint.
K: Can’t really see it.
L: *sigh* You know, I’ve been up all night.
K: Really? Why?
L: Someone wrote a book about me. It’s supposed to come out today.
K: This makes you nervous?
L: Anyone ever write a book about you?
K: Well…
L: Yeah.
K: You going to do something with those one-word answers?
L: “I sit outdoors pondering cats in the half-full sunset of summer…”
K: Luke!
L: Brigitta would like it. She appreciates poetry.
K: She appreciates good poetry.
L: Hey, I’m just getting warmed up. I haven’t even gotten to “alone” “living with mistakes” and “being invisible.”
K: What about those things?
L: Weren’t we talking about coffee? I could’ve sworn we were talking about coffee.
K: Why would you rather be invisible?
L: Think I’m going to tell you?
K: It’s an intriguing answer, considering you may be a movie star in hiding.
L: Oh, don’t start on that!
K: Brigitta wonders if you are.
L: She doesn’t, really.
K: Au contraire, mon ami!
L: No she doesn’t. She doesn’t care about stuff like that.
K: More than you think.
L: I think I know her a little better than you do.
K: That’s cheeky.
L: No offense, but you’re just the author. There’s a lot we don’t tell you.
L: You’re speechless!
K: Are you Trent Yves?
K: Now you’re speechless.
L: No. Just tired of that question. Give it a rest.
K: All right…Half empty or half full?
L: “In the summer I am a half-full kinda guy, alone with my mistakes, invisible until sunset when the cats offer me vanilla coffee and promise to interpret my dreams…”
K: ???
L: Told you I was tired.
Make sure to visit all the other stops of the tour, and keep your eye out for The Summer of No Regrets, which is out today!

The Summer of No Regrets by Katherine Grace Bond
(Amazon | Goodreads)
The day Brigitta accidentally flings herself into the lap of a guy she’s never met, her friend Natalie is convinced he’s Trent Yves, egotistical heartthrob-in-hiding. Brigitta hopes he’ll hide far away from her. But Trent wouldn’t be the only missing person. Since her grandparents both died, Brigitta has felt lost—especially with her dad refusing to talk about them. When the boy, who calls himself Luke, is nearly eaten by a cougar, Brigitta finds herself saving his life, being swept into his spectacular embrace and wondering if she wants Natalie’s fantasy to be true. But as she comes to know him, Brigitta realizes she wants more than an idol. And she may not get to choose.


  1. Hmmm. Luke is a man of few words. I'll have to see if I can pull anything more out of him. I'll check back if he tells me anything else. 

  2. I love Luke's voice and attitude! He's so funny:)

    Thanks for showcasing this book, and it's great it's got animals in it:)

  3. Wow. That's seriously one of the funniest (well, for me!) conversations between an author and a character that I've read. I believe I'm going to love Luke. He's such an easy but mysterious talker! I enjoyed your interview especially the one-word answers that Ms. Katherine gave and when Luke made a sentence out of it. It's just so cool. This is one of the spring releases I've been waiting for. Can't wait to read it!

  4. I've seen THE SUMMER OF NO REGRETS around the internet. 

    One-word answers - Luke needs to work on his social skills.

  5. Luke is soooo sweet <3 Great interview, I might have to invest in a copy of Summer of No Regrets!


Please leave a comment - I love to hear what you think!
