Ami asked S.J. Watson:

Before I Go to Sleep is your debut novel, and it was a BEAST. How does it feel to have a novel get popular so quickly like that?

S.J. Watson 'Beast' is good, right?!

It felt amazing, scary, exhilarating, terrifying. My feet didn't touch the ground for about a year! But it's been such an honour to meet people around the world who've loved my book, and it's really nice when people tell me it's turned them on to reading, or that it had helped them through a difficult time. I couldn't ask for more.
