Ugly Love: An Interview with Bestselling Author and TATE Fan Colleen Hoover

This Is Nowhere

Colleen HooverEd. Note: We recently stumbled across an interview with New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, in which she mentioned that her new novel, Ugly Love, was inspired by the music of The Airborne Toxic Event. Naturally, this piqued our interest. Earlier this week, we had a chance to connect with Colleen to hear more about the book, her TATE fandom, and how the band influenced her latest work.

Colleen is generously giving away a signed copy of Ugly Love to one lucky reader. To enter the contest, all you have to do is comment on this interview (see below), and you’ll be entered into the draw. Good luck!
