About THE LAST EVER AFTER

In the epic conclusion to Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling series, The School for Good and Evil, everything old is new again as Sophie and Agatha fight the past as well as the present to find the perfect end to their story.

As A World Without Princes closed, the end was written and former best friends Sophie and Agatha went their separate ways. Agatha was whisked back to Gavaldon with Tedros and Sophie stayed behind with the beautiful young SchoolMaster.

But as they settle into their new lives, their story begs to be re-written, and this time, theirs isn’t the only one. With the girls apart, Evil has taken over and the villains of the past have come back to change their tales and turn the world ofGood and Evil upside down.

Readers around the world are eagerly awaiting the third book in The School for Good and Evil series, The Last Ever After. This extraordinary conclusion delivers more action, adventure, laughter, romance and fairy tale twists and turns than you could ever dream of!
 




Soman Chainani interview with Fallon and Tawney

I loved seeing the friendship between Sophie and Agatha. Did you have a great friendship like this as a kid?

SC: No. I wish I did. Maybe that’s why I wrote the book. I feel like I never had someone who truly understood me, who I could be my true self with all the time. Instead, I think I was a bit insecure as a kid, so I tended to hide my real personality and just play the funny/cool role all the time instead of opening up the way that Sophie and Agatha do to each other. They’re both so raw and honest with each other. True, they do lie to each other sometimes, but for the most part, they’re brutally open about their own flaws and each other’s. They almost come to complete each other – like two sides of the same coin.

How did you come up with the Evers and Nevers?

SC: In my early drafts, I was so tired of calling the kids the Good Kids and Evil Kids that I knew I needed a name. But I couldn’t come up with anything. I remember being at my friend’s place in LA and making tea, and all of a sudden, I heard it in my head: Evers and Nevers. I could feel my face lit up and it was the first time I realized that deep down, my subconscious had this all planned out… and perhaps this series could be something truly wonderful.

Was it always your intentions to have Sophie and Agatha choose their happily ever after together?

SC: I knew only that I wanted them to be equal protagonists in the course of the series, to that neither of them would have a bigger part than the other. How it would end, however, I wasn’t quite sure, except that I wanted them both to have to participate in each other’s ending, whatever that would mean. You’ll see in the dramatic conclusion to Book 3…

Any sneak peeks for book 3?

SC: Absolutely none! Only that I love the book. I really do. It’s the best I could have done as a writer with the time I had and what I knew at the time. It’s truly my most personal philosophy on the world and everything I have to give.

What do you do on your down time when not writing?

SC: I play a ton of tennis, I work out a lot, I travel with friends, and most importantly, I read. I try to have a lot of balance in my life, because I’m well aware that if I don’t, it’ll go all too fast.

What is the best writing advice you have ever received?

SC: Enjoy it. If you’re not enjoying the writing, then why are you doing it? You’re better off working at a bagel shop or an amusement park, where at the very least there will be bagels and fun company. You have to dig into the writing and really want to be doing it. It has to be self-expression at its deepest and most honest.

Will your next venture be Middle Grade as well or will you be writing in a completely different genre?

SC: Middle grade, most likely, but as I’m sure you’re aware, my middle-grade isn’t your usual middle-grade… So let’s call it ‘Mischievous Literature for All Those Who Enjoy Mischief, Regardless of Your Age.” That’s what I’ll write next and continue to write forever.
