Rachel Lynn Solomon recently traveled from her home in Amsterdam to the U.S. to present her new YA novel Past, Present, Future (SimonTeen). The sequel to Today, Tonight, Tomorrow traces Rowan and Neil as they head off to different colleges and face the troubles of a long-distance relationship. During Solomon’s five-city tour, she made appearances at several bookstores to chat with fellow authors and romance fans about writing a sequel and crafting a swoon-worthy romance. We’ve gathered highlights of her trip.

Solomon (l.) kicked off her tour on June 4 with an event at the Lake Forest Park location of Third Place Books in Washington to discuss her new book with conversation partner Rachel Griffin.
