Susane Colasanti Blog Tour Guest Post & Giveaway

Please welcome Susane Colasanti to GreenBeanTeenQueen! Susane's newest book, So Much Closer, was just released and she's celebrating with a blog tour!

Check out a preview of So Much Closer and keep up with Susane at her website and Twitter. But enough from me-here's Susane to tell you about So Much Closer!

Greetings, friendly neighbors! I’m stoked to share some of the inspiration for my fifth book, So Much Closer.

Realistic fiction is my thing. I like incorporating details inspired by my own experiences to make my books feel as realistic as possible. So Much Closer takes place in my neighborhood, the West Village. I had lots of fun including my fave New York City places and things in this book. For my blog tour, we thought it would be fun to share some of them with you. So here we go!

3. Big Gay Ice Cream Truck

The day Brooke meets John, he’s wearing a shirt that says Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. Sounds cool, right? It’s completely real! Big Gay is out and about during the warm months. The truck is usually parked near Union Square. You can tell it’s Big Gay instead of some standard Mister Softee by its colorful banner with a rainbow-striped ice cream cone.

What makes Big Gay special? Its eccentric toppings. Douglas serves up ice cream with olive oil, sea salt, pickles, Nutella, wasabi pea dust, Lucky Charms…if you’ve dared to dream it, he’s already tried it. Follow Big Gay on Twitter for hot tips on what to say when you order to score free toppings. The code phrase usually involves an ep of Seinfeld. Which just proves that Douglas is a true New Yorker. Big Gay all the way!
