FAQ

Q: Does Pivot Point have a sequel?
A: Why, yes. Yes, it does. It's called Split Second and you should read it.

Q: Are you writing a sequel for The Distance Between Us?
A: No, it's just the one, but I promise everything you have questions about works out exactly like you're imagining it.

Q: No, really, will you write a sequel for The Distance Between Us?
A: As of now, my answer is really no. But who knows what the future holds. I've learned to never say never. For now, I'm super excited that I have 2 other contemporaries out--On The Fence and The Fill-In Boyfriend. And two more coming out in the next year--P.S. I Like You and By Your Side.

Q: Are you writing a sequel for The Fill-In Boyfriend?
A: No, I'm not. Thank you for loving it enough to want a sequel, but I think Gia and her boy's story from here on out would be too sweet to make an interesting sequel. Now, would I love to write a companion novel starring Bec? Yes, I would. But, I have other books I'm working on that are under contract, so we'll see if I can squeeze that in somewhere.

Q: Is Pivot Point a trilogy?
A: No, the series ends with Split Second.

Q: Is there going to be sequel for On The Fence?
A: I love those of you who want one, but there is no sequel planned.

Q: What about that book I see on goodreads called The Sun The Moon and The Truth? Is that a Teen Wolf thing? And when does that book come out?
A: I have never seen Teen Wolf and had no idea it was a Teen Wolf saying until after all of you started telling me. So, no, it's not at all. And that book is waiting in the wings right now. It was bought by Egmont before they closed their doors. So it has no home. But I love it so much so I will figure out a way for you all to read it.

Q: Will you do an interview for my blog?
A: I will try my hardest. Life is crazy busy right now. But email me some questions. kasie24(at)gmail(dot)com. Well, don't just email me some questions. First email me and ask me then wait for me to say yes, which will happen only if I have time, then email me some questions.

Q: Will you come hang out with our book club?
A: Yes. If you live close to me I'd love to come to your book club (if it doesn't conflict with previously scheduled events). I do have one rule though: No talking bad about my book until after I leave. When I'm there, a short presentation by me and then you will proceed to shower me with praise and/or questions. You will also share whatever goodies you are eating that night because let's face it, that's half (if not three-fourths) of the reason we're at book club anyway.

Q: Can I purchase a signed copy of your book?
A: Yes! And this makes me love you. I actually have an arrangement with a local Indie bookstore here in my hometown called Petunia's Place. Call them to request a signed/personalized copy. Please allow a little extra time due to the fact that....you know....I have to drive over there and personalize it and stuff.

Q: How do you pronounce your name?
A: I answer to 'Kasie' 'Cassie' and 'Hey you' but the right pronunciation is K-C. As in KC and the Sunshine Band or Casey at the bat or any other really old references that nobody knows anymore.

Q: Is your husband really 6'8"?
A: Yes, but when we met he told me he was 6'9" and I'm still angry that he lured me in under false pretenses.

Q: You have four kids? Are you crazy?
A: Yes. I am. Thanks for noticing.

    1. lol You have no idea how much I didn't want to change this. But when the 100th person (that is an exaggeration to make me feel more important) asked me if Pivot Point had a sequel, I knew it had to be done.

    2. Kasie West, You are FUNNY! I guessed that you had to be, as Caymen had me laughing out loud a lot and Addie was subtly funny too. Now I want to know what this change is...But I guess that's between your agent and yourself. Boo.

  17. I really wish you were making a sequel for The Distance Between Us, it's litteraly my favorite book ever and I was so upset when I got done reading it I kind of wished it was a book that went on for infinity because of how amazing it was, but then again I wouldn't want to make you stress. I really wish you could make a sequel for the amazing book to explain what happened after Xander entered the room in the hospital with caymens mom inside, and what happened after they did those testings to Caymens mother? I really wish you would make a sequel.

  18. Are you going to write like a pre-sequel just for us to know what happen to Claire and Gia relationship after everything that happen between them.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Kasie, please, please, please, please make a sequel for On the Fence and The Distance Between Us. I loved these books so much and the endings basically left us to finish them with our own imaginations. I have made so many different scenes that I wish would happen after the the story ended. In The Distance Between Us when Caymen's mom is in the hospital, what happens after that? Does her mom get better? Do Caymen and Xander ever watch the Shinning? What happens when they go to college? Can they overcome that distance?(Assuming they go to different colleges). These are the things most of your fans want to know. They want to hear it from the person who creates the whole plot and story with these characters. Please, just think about writing a sequel to these stories.

  21. Hi kasie west im 13 my name is yesi and I just wanted to know if you are going to make another book like the fill in boyfriend because I loved it and if you do make another one I would love to read it. Love your books by the way.

  22. Hi Kasie West!! I absolutely love your books, especially your contemporary romance novels (with Hayden being my absolute favorite!!)

    Anyway, I wanted to ask you a question about "On The Fence." I started reading it, and I couldn't help but notice that, while Charlie is job hunting, she comes across a doll shop. I didn't think anything of it, but when the girl mentions a boy named Xander, I immediately thought it was Caymen from "The Distance Between Us" (also an amazing book, with amazing characters!). So, I wanted to ask you if all of your characters live close to one another, but they just don't know each other. (If it is, that's awesome!! I love Easter eggs!!)

  29. Please write a sequel (continuation?) for split second!!! There are so many unanswered questions!! What about Connors Dad? Will he ever make emends with him? And what about the time stop ability? Is that a symptom or just a part of her Divergence? What happens to Duke? Where does he go to college? What happens with her Dad living with the Norms? Why did he want to leave in the first place? You have to answer all of these questions! Please!!!!

  39. Hi! I picked up your book "On the Fence" on a whim at a scholastic book fair when I was meant to be getting classroom supplies lol. I usually don't read romance type novels but I was very impressed with your book and how much I related to it (being the youngest with two older brothers and quite sporty myself except for a recent injury that's got me on hold). I really enjoyed your story telling and the fact that the characters were yours but also the readers as you didn't try to describe them to death. It allows for everyone to picture them in your guidelines but to their imagination, for me that works great!

    So naturally, after finding out that there's no sequel... please consider writing one :) I searched other books of yours and read the "Fill-in Boyfriend". Another fantastic and pleasant read. Great work! I just wanted to let you know your writing style is very easy to read and picture and just overall very well done. I do wish the two books got more into the relationship between the main characters at the end. That's where sequels could come in... hint hint. Lol sorry. Just like others have said I would love sequels for more of your easy going and relatable characters from these books.
    Now that you've read my comment/short story, I'll leave you be. Keep up the great work! :)

  43. I've now read two of your books; P.S. I like you and The Fill-In Boyfriend and I just wanted to say you inspire me so much I literally want to be you when I grow up. I can't even explain the way I get when I read those books. I actually just finished P.S. I like you today and I ready the whole thing in 5 hours and I got so mad when someone interrupted me lol. But I love your stuff when I first read the Fill-In Boyfriend I was drawn to it my 8th grade teacher had to rip the book out of my hands some time and tell me to stop reading. Which usually doesn't happen because she use to force me to read and when I'm forced to read I don't like it but I picked the book out and wanted to read it and I read it even when we didn't have to read. Sometimes when I was reading your books just to see what happened on the next page and I would have to tell myself to stop lol. I know you might not care that I'm just a fourteen year old girl who loves and is addicted to your books but you inspire me so much and thank you for that. I just end finished talking my mom into buying the rest of your books so I can read them all. It may sound weird but your books are my addition it's like I can't but it down I'm drawn to it and I can't wait until they come in, those other books thank you so much you mean the world to me because you finally got me back interested into books again and I'm in love with it. I can't wait till my birthday which is in a month I hope my mom gets me some more books. Thank you so much and I know how much my mom loves that I'm reading again so I know she really appreciates you too! Thank you so much again!!


    Ps. I kinda want to fly down to California just to meet you in person!

    Love, AbbyLea Masters

  46. I've already commented about this on another page, but I am motivated and persistent. I frankly am jealous that pivot point got a sequel and none of your other books did. I've loved every book of yours that I read. But it hurts me so bad that there are no sequels, my favorite being (still) By Your Side. I know its pretty much new so I hope that there will be more buzz. You are my favorite author. I apologize in advanced about bugging you about this. I've read through many of your comments and I know a lot of people beg for sequels, sorry I'm gonna add on to that. But I reread that book twice and I never reread books. I know its not easy but please make a sequel to By Your Side or at least please respond. Big fan, thank you for wasting your time on a middle schooler begging for a sequel. ;)

  48. Hi, I've read all of your books that are in stores. You are my absolute favorite author, people ask me what my favorite books is and I stand there for 5 minutes thinking about which of your books I like best. I have two questions. One how do I read The Sun, The Moon, and The Truth? And two what is it about? Also I can't wait for lucky in love to come out, I can only reread your books and its probably going to kill me until june. I'm not going to keep asking for a sequel because I know I'm not going to get one. I also have an idea if you are willing to take it, you should write some of your stories from the guy's perspective just like in the Extras in Split Second. Thank you for entertaining me, Jordan.

  49. It seems you are the kind of author who leaves it to you audience to decide what happens next. That's why only one of your books has a sequel. I am a person who wants to feel satisfied about a book, while that is a great way to do things, it stresses me out. I'm not going to ask for a sequel because the writing process is not easy. But I get really (really) attached to your characters and then I don't know what I want to do after i finish your books. This is a random thought but there are pros and cons to having a still working favorite author because than you can expect a new book to come out or in your case they don't have as many books as you wish they'd have. Sorry about the really random thoughts.
