Whispers In Autumn Book Tour Stop By Trisha Leigh

YA Dystopian (Post Apocalyptic) 
Title: Whispers In Autumn 
Author: Trisha Leigh


It’s early morning. It always is. The sound of movement on the floor below forces my fists to unclench, releasing the garish orange comforter wrinkled inside them. Last night I fell asleep at the Hammond’s house, where the bedding is green and spring crept toward an end. I never get used to starting over like this, but as my travels grow more frequent, a kind of numbness settles in. My feet find their way out from under the heavy down and settle into the slippers beside the bed.
            As if I never left.
            I shuffle across the thick, brown carpet and kneel on the padded window seat to peer outside. The trees are bright splotches against the vivid blue sky—some crimson, others a sunny yellow—with a few fiery oranges scattered about. Their bold colors verify my suspicions.
            It’s autumn now.

My Thoughts 
I was really really excited to read this book when I heard that it was about aliens. Truthfully I never thought I would ever be interested in a book about them. But this one wow I was happy that I read. I really liked everything about it there was not one thing that I didn't like. Lucas seemed like a mysterious guy but then again I liked that, pretty much everything about this book seemed mysterious. It was written amazingly well and from beginning to end you were hooked and that's what made you keep reading. 

The story was really creepy so I knew I was instantly going to love it. The author explained it enough for me to actually feel what Althea saw it was amazing. I know that I am going to want to spoil this book because of how great well it wasn't great it was by far the most amazing one I've read. So I am just going to say that if you haven't read this before you should definitely read it now.

I guarantee that you are going to love it its suspenseful, a mystery, and well written. I will not say more because I know I'm going to spoil everything but I will say that you have to read it. You have to have to. I cannot wait for the next books in the series they are going to be amazing, I am going to have to make my friends buy them also. One of my friends is going to start reading it soon cause she said it sounded amazing. So I can't wait to get her input on it.

1. What inspired you to write Whispers In Autumn?
Well the original idea came from a tweet in which a lady said her daughter had woken up the night before terrified that she didn't exist. I'd been working at writing for a while before that, until I tried YA that I felt like I'd found the best place for stories

2. How did you come up with the name?
Honestly I'm not sure. The original title was In The Autumn because I knew there would be four books and they would connect to the seasons. I eventually changed it to Whispers after some agent feedback suggesting something more dynamic.

3. How did you decide on the storyline for it?
I'm the kind of writer who gets ideas from characters more than plot, so I suppose I kind of hoofed around after Althea until she let me in on the secret of where we were headed.

4. If the book were made into a movie which actors would you pick to play Althea and Lucus?
If I were casting age appropriate actors, I would cast Nicola Peltz as Althea and Alex Ferris as Lucas. If I were picking anyone (not worrying about age) I would cast Molly C Quinn and Zac Efron.

5. Are you currently working on any book(s)?
Of course! I'm currently about 2/3 of the way through the first Draft of book 3 of The Last Year series, The Spring book that still doesn't have a final title.

6. And which favorite authors of yours have inspired you?
There are a lot, and all for different aspects of their writing/style/career, Madeline L'Engle, George R.R Martin, Francine Rivers, Nicholas Sparks, Sara Zarr, and Jeyn Roberts, to name a few.

7. Is there any specific place where you feel inspired to write?
Not particularly I guess it' a little weird, but my highest word counts are when I'm at home.

9. Your current favorite song?
In General, She's So Mean by Matchbox Twenty. Related to my writing, Turn To Stone by Ingrid Michaelson

10. How can readers get in contact with you?
I'm on twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, Tumblr, and Pintrest (and probably something else I forgot about). You can find the links to my profiles on all of those sites on the contact page of my website: Http://

Author Bio 

Raised by a family of ex-farmers and/or almost rock stars from Northeastern, Iowa. I've always loved to tell stories. After graduating from Texas Christian University with a degree in Film. I begin to search for a way to release the voices in my head. I wrote a thriller and a couple of ghost stories. Getting my feet wet and learning with each attempt. When I attempted my first YA novel, which would become Whispers In Autumn. I was hooked. I knew then my heart lay with telling stories about and for young adults and for anyone who loves to read and recapture those fleeting "first" moments. 
My spare time is spent reviewing televisions and movies, spending time with my large, loud, loving family, reading any book that falls into my hands, and being dragged into the fresh air by my dogs Yoda and Jilly.
