Blog Tour + #Giveaway: Remember Yesterday by Pintip Dunn @PintipDunn @chapterxchapter @EntangledTeen



Remember Yesterday (Forget Tomorrow, #2)
Pintip Dunn
Release Date: October 4, 2016
Genre: YA Sci Fi
Publisher: Entangled Teen

Sixteen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries, if only she’d let TechRA study her. But ten years ago, the scientists kidnapped and experimented on her, leading to severe ramifications for her sister, Callie. She’d much rather break into their labs and sabotage their research—starting with Tanner Callahan, budding scientist and the boy she loathes most at school.

The past isn’t what she assumed, though—and neither is Tanner. He’s not the arrogant jerk she thought he was. And his research opens the door to the possibility that Jessa can rectify a fatal mistake made ten years earlier. She’ll do anything to change the past and save her sister—even if it means teaming up with the enemy she swore to defeat.

Forget Tomorrow (Forget Tomorrow #1)
by Pintip Dunn
Release Date: November 3, 2015 
Genre: YA Sci Fi
Publisher: Entangled Teen

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.

It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.

In her vision, she sees herself murdering her gifted younger sister. Before she can process what it means, Callie is arrested and placed in Limbo―a prison for those destined to break the law. With the help of her childhood crush, Logan, a boy she hasn’t spoken to in five years, she escapes the hellish prison.

But on the run from her future, as well as the government, Callie sets in motion a chain of events that she hopes will change her fate. If not, she must figure out how to protect her sister from the biggest threat of all.

Callie herself.




An Interview with Pintip Dunn

What inspired you to write Remember Yesterday?

REMEMBER YESTERDAY is the sequel to FORGET TOMORROW, so I'll talk about my inspiration for the series. 

I had been writing seriously for years and was getting frustrated with the publication process, namely the rejections. My editor friend said to me: "I wish I had a crystal ball. Then, I could tell you five years from now, you will definitely be published and you wouldn't worry about it so much." 

A few days later, I was taking a nap with my toddler son and in that hazy state between being sleep and awake. "Wouldn't it be great," I thought, "if we could send memories to our younger selves? Then I could see myself as a successful author and know that all this sweat and blood and tears were worth it." My next thought was: "Hey, that would make a great idea for a book!" And presto: FORGET TOMORROW was born. 

Note: FORGET TOMORROW is about a world where memories can be sent back in time, and my heroine, Callie, receives a vision that she will one day kill her younger sister, Jessa. 


When or at what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I've wanted to be an author since I was six. I remember so clearly my first-grade teacher giving the assignment of writing down the three things we wanted to be when we grew up. My third answer was "artist." My second answer is lost in the memories of time. And my first answer? "Author." 


What is the earliest age you remember reading your first book?

Gosh, I don't know. Really young. I was the ultimate bookworm when I was a kid, and I do remember in the second grade, I read 212 books in one semester to win our school's Book-It contest. 


What genre of books do you enjoy reading?

I love anything young adult, and that's what I mostly read. But I also love adult romance and science fiction and suspense/thrillers, and I'll also read literary fiction (I was an English major, after all!) 


What is your favorite book?

Just one. Really? Hooooooowwww????? 
Um...um...um... Okay, fine. THE HUNGER GAMES. If there was ever a perfect book, I think that's it. 


You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

Oh, gosh. Another hard one. I'm going to say Jane Austen. I've certainly reread her books the most often. I used to read all of her books once a year, every year. I've fallen out of the habit since I've had kids (no time), but all of her books are still favorites of mine. 


If you could travel back in time here on earth to any place or time. Where would you go and why?

I would go back 35 years to when my mother was still alive and spend time with her. 


When writing a book do you find that writing comes easy for you or is it a difficult task?

Honestly, it depends on the day! However, I find that it is easier to write when I've written the day before. So when I'm in the midst of writing a novel, I will write every day, even on the weekends. Writer's block will set in mostly when I've taken some time off! 


Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

I have a goldfish, lots of guppies, a frog, and two hermit crabs. So no fuzzy friends, but we love them nonetheless! 


What is your "to die for", favorite food/foods to eat?
Ha! A question after my own heart (or stomach). I am an absolute foodie. My current favorites are: oysters, foie gras, bone marrow, uni (sea urchin), and salmon toro sashimi. 


Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?

Persevere. The difference between a published and unpublished writer is that the published one didn't give up.
