Rhode Island Authors Showcase – Featuring Angelina Singer!

The Rhode Island Authors Showcase is back! Each day in November, I’ll be featuring a different RI author. Each post features a giveaway – a book, an anthology, or something else! All you have to do to be eligible for the daily drawing is leave a comment on the blog post. I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner one week after the blog post (to give you time to catch up).

By commenting on each post, you’re also entered to win our bigger prizes: GRAND PRIZE is a $250 Amazon gift card, BONUS PRIZE is a $100 Amazon gift card, and the CHEER UP YOU WON SOMETHING PRIZE is a $50 Amazon gift card. The big prizes will be chosen, again using a random number generator, on December 7.

Angelina Singer

Lovelovelove this remarkable young powerhouse! Welcome to Angelina Singer. Let’s learn some more about her.

Where is your hometown? Raynham, MA (not far from the Rhode Island border!)

Tell us about your genre(s): I write Young Adult dystopian sci-fi, YA/NA contemporary romance/time travel coming-of-age

What have you written? Just Like a Pill: Who Knew the Boy of Her Dreams Would Fall Under Her Spell (2016). The Sorting Room (book 1 of The Upperworld Series) (2017). The Fall of Zephyr (book 2 of The Upperworld Series) (2018). The Rise of Onyx (book 3 of The Upperworld Series) (2018). Forgetting What I Couldn’t Remember (book 1 of The Rewind Duology) (2020). Forgiving What I Couldn’t Change (book 2 of The Rewind Duology) (2021).

Who are some of your favorite authors? Colleen Hoover, Suzanne Collins, Jenn Bennett

What do you like best about writing? I love being able to do anything I want and be anything I want in a world that I design. It’s really fun to have that freedom, and also to have that place for healing too (as seen in The Rewind Duology).

What do find most challenging about writing? Finding motivation! Oftentimes I have the idea and the excitement, but there’s just no enthusiasm (or maybe I’m too drained from my day jobs writing). But once I hit my stride, it’s a blast! I can only hope that I find that energy again for it soon, because I’ve got a great new book idea that’s been brewing for a while, and I really want to query this one.

Where do you draw your inspiration? From life! My very first novel, Just Like a Pill, was inspired by a guy from band camp I had this crazy crush on. And my most recent concept, The Rewind Duology, was based on my past struggles with bullying as a kid and finding peace with that now as an adult.

You’ve just been given the chance to collaborate on a book with Colleen Hoover (squee!) What’s the title going to be? Colleen Hoover, that would be wild. Probably All the Things You Wish You Were. I see it as some kind of gritty, angsty, New Adult romance with maybe a second chance and a lot of frustration in the plot. She’d probably bring the spicier moments, and I’d add some fluff to the emotional moments and conversations. That would be a dream collaboration for sure!

  1. I listened to Angelina interviewed on a podcast and just love her enthusiasm, empathy, and literary voice. I see that it carries over here in her written interview responses. I see big things for this remarkable young woman.

    If I were to go back to my childhood I’d tell myself that in the end all would turn out well. Not perfect, for sure, but far better than I expected back then.

  2. That is the question, very thought provoking. It’s very scary to change the past, you could do more damage than good. Perhaps embrace my parents more…

  3. I would tell myself to invest in a number of things so I could be financially secure. And more importantly I would tell myself that the things that were upsetting me and holding me back should be dropped like a hot rock and I would tell myself certain things to be really focused and working towards. Also would tell myself to dump my one ex-boyfeind pronto!

  4. I would tell myself to hide the kitten from my dad. My dad wouldn’t let the kitten stay in the house, and the next morning the kitten was dead in our yard. I never forgave him for that.

  5. Hi Angelina, I’d say you don’t need to collaborate on “All Things You Wish You Were”. You have a great title already and an interesting plot and emotional content figured out! If I traveled back in time I would tell myself to just say what I am feeling when people are taking advantage of me because they have learned that they can!

  6. I’d tell myself to not get addicted to smoking and to help my parents, brothers, and sisters to also not smoke. Even though I quit smoking a few decades ago, I started to munch on things a lot. Now, I’m addicted to chocolate, but I know that’s a lot better than cigarettes.
