Today we bring you part 2 of our three-part exclusive Q&A with Hotel Ruby author Suzanne Young. If you missed it, catch part 1 here.
It is nice to wrap up the story in one book. But to be honest, I wouldn’t mind revisiting the Ruby again. I’m sure there are still quite a few secrets in the walls.
Switching gears a little bit, let’s talk about your PROGRAM series. The fourth book in that series — the second of your prequels — comes out next year. Do you have any plans for more stories set in that universe?
I’m really excited for THE EPIDEMIC in spring! It will tie THE REMEDY and THE PROGRAM together really well, and we’ll see an end to Quinn and Deacon’s story.
But also exciting, I just announced a new series coming out in spring of 17 starting with THE ADJUSTMENT. It will be set after THE TREATMENT—so The Program is no more—but it asks the question: what happened to all of the patients who were erased? What are their lives like now?
They’re outcasts. A new company is developed and they offer Adjustments—a way to put memories back in (very Total Recall). But memory is a matter of perspective. So when the main character wants her boyfriend to remember their shared past, she doesn’t realize that what she thinks they had might be the idealized version…
Can you tell us anything about what you’re working on now?
I’m drafting THE ADJUSTMENT and I’m starting edits on a fall book called ALL IN PIECES. It’s a heartbreaking contemporary that I’ve been waiting years to publish. I’m… I’m actually breathless when I think about it. I absolutely love and hurt for it.
