Sinking into the act of writing is amazing. There is nothing like hitting that zone where you’re only aware of the events occurring in your imagination. Writing is magical. Transformative. And I am so fortunate to experience that magical transformation each and every day, to be living the life I have always dreamed for myself – the life of an author.


It still seems surreal. There was the first b...

“What if it's as simple as one moment? One tiny thing, like that kiss on the rocks? What if I'd kissed him a little longer? Would he be alive right now? Or what if I'd stayed with him Friday night, what if I'd been with him… wherever he was?”
Kristina McBride, One Moment

“Above, leaves fluttered in the moonlight, and I wondered if their whispers were meant for me, if they were imprinted with a code that I needed to decipher. Some kind of important message that would help me get this right.”
Kristina McBride, One Moment

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Everything...affects everything”
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why

“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there's only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

“The whole point of growing up is learning to stay on the laughing side.”

Erin hello! your book looks very intense and interesting. i look forward to reading it. =)


Kristina McBride Thanks so much! I saw your "About me" and we have so much in common, I thought I should friend you!


message 3: by Abby

Abby hey kristina! (i wanted to say ms. mcbride, but i'm trying really hard to be mature!) heehee i was looking at your 'to read' books, and i added 'scones and sensibility' to my 'to read' list, because it looks pretty great...see you - and grant - on thursday!


Kristina McBride Hey, Abby! Call me Kristi why dontcha? Funny, I never thought you might be stuck back all those years ago now that I see you so often! And you don't have to try to be mature, my friend!

Scones & Sensibility is so good - a great one for you. It's out next week, I think. The cover is awesome too, isn't it?


message 5: by Dani

Dani Thanks for the add Kristina! I cant wait to read Tension of Opposites, it looks amazing, and I love the cover! :]


Kristina McBride Thanks so much! I hope you like the book as well as the cover!I enjoy how much you love books! I'm a doodler too, but not such a great one :)


Kristina McBride I saw your favorite authors - Sarah Dessen and Jodi Picoult are two of my faves as well - and I thought we should connect! I'll have to check our your other fave - Keckler, I think. Hope you enjoy "The Tension of Opposites" if you check it out! It releases May 25th - eek!


Brooke Hi Kristina!

Hellow from Australia :o) Thank you for asking to add me as a friend! I have your book on my to-read list (The Tension Of Opposites) - I'm very much looking forward to reading it!

Take care <3 Brooke


Kristina McBride Thanks, Brooke. I saw your profile and thought you just might be into my book with the faves you have listed. I hope you like it!

Abby Kristina - have you read 'The Hunger Games' (any from the series?) I just started (this weekend) the first one, really like it, and it makes me think of something you might like ~ The Hunger Games


Kristina McBride Hey Abby - I have read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Both awesome. #3 is due out in August. Thanks for the recommendation! Hope you're enjoying your break! The boy was talking about you the other day!

Thanks for adding me! I hope you like The Tension of Opposites!

Abby Do you have 'Catching Fire'? Is there any chance you could bring it to school on Thursday if you do? Thanks so much!!


Kristina McBride Abby wrote: "Do you have 'Catching Fire'? Is there any chance you could bring it to school on Thursday if you do? Thanks so much!!"

I don't have it - I waited in line for the library copies. If you call the library, it should only take a week or so. IF you can wait that long :) They're good, huh?


Penelope Marzec Thanks for adding me as a friend!


Kristina McBride Of course!


Kiersten Bree Hey, Kristina! I was lucky enough to meet you at the Smart Chicks Kick It tour in Dayton! Thank you so much for the signed bookmarks. I have a quick question; are you currently writing anymore novels? Oh, and is Tension of Opposites going to have a sequel?
Thanks,
Kiersten


Kristina McBride It was so much fun to meet you! I was glad to give you the bookmarks. Wish I could have signed your book! I am writing novel # 2 of my 2-book deal - but it is not related to The Tension of Opposites. I kind of doubt about a sequel. If you're near Cincinnati this Saturday (the 2nd) there is a huge, all-day book festival at the Duke Energy Center. I'll be there signing books and would love to see you again!

Here's a link so you can see the huge list of authors and get info if you're intersted in stopping by: http://booksbythebanks.org/


Kiersten Bree That sounds awesome, I'll see if I can come, thanks!


Kristina McBride Would love to see you! There should be some other fun authors there too :)

Trini Hi Kristina!
I LOVED One Moment and was just wondering if there will be another book for Maggie and uhh you know who. Just curious to know. A fellow blogger and I have been chatting non stop about this book and we want more..;)

Trini! I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to respond! I'm just seeing this - not sure why I didn't receive a notification. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the book enough to want another, but One Moment is a stand alone novel. I am working hard on another, totally unrelated book at this point. Hopefully that will satisfy your need for more, even if it isn't Maggie and her crew :)
