Happy Tuesday, everyone!
I got to interview Tashie Bhuiyan, AMM R6 alum and author of 2021 YA debut COUNTING DOWN WITH YOU! Tashie is bright, fun, and inspiring. I know you’ll enjoy reading her talk about her life as a student AND an author, her favorite rom coms, and the journey that led to her getting her agent.
Hi Tashie! Can you tell me about the book that got you your agent?
TB: Of course! So the book that got me my agent is Counting Down With You (which you can add on Goodreads now!!! https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48258256-counting-down-with-you) and it’s a YA contemporary coming-of-age novel with a side of romance! It has fake dating, a forced tutoring situation, a ridiculous group chat, and the most supportive grandma. It discusses themes of independence, family and first love as my main character struggles between doing what she wants to do and what her parents want her to do.
