Questions for Elana Johnson, author of Possession? + Giveaway

At the end of this month Danya at A Tapestry of Words and I will be hosting A Cornucopia of Dystopia featuring several exciting 2011 dystopian releases!

As part of the event, we'd like to ask readers to submit questions for Elana Johnson, author of Possession, about her book, herself, or anything else you can think of! We'll choose several questions for an interview with Elana and will post her responses during the event, so come back to see if your question was answered!

Here's a little info about Elana and her novel:

Elana's debut novel, POSSESSION, will be published by Simon & Schuster on June 7, 2011.

She wishes she could experience her first kiss again, tell the mean girls where to shove it, and have cool superpowers like reading minds and controlling fire. To fulfill her desires, she writes young adult science fiction and fantasy.

She is the author of From the Query to the Call, an ebook that every writer needs to read before they query.

She runs a personal blog on publishing and is a founding author of the QueryTracker blog. She blogs regularly at The League of Extraordinary Writers, and is a member of SCBWI.

From author's website.

Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even thinkabout kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.

But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn.

This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.

From Goodreads.

My question for Elana

Have you read Matched by Ally Condie? What do you think about the parallels and similarities in your novels?

What inspires you? Is it something particular like a person or life itself? Are you thinking about other genres or just dystopia?

Count me in only if the giveaway is international!
