What does the title Me Before You mean?

Jojo deliberately left the title opaque but she likes to think of it as a reference to both Will and Lou, meaning “who I was before I met you”.

Will there be a third book?

There aren’t any definite plans for a trilogy but if the right story for Lou comes along, Jojo would certainly consider writing it! See Jojo’s comments on this in WSJ’s Weekend Confidential here.

Would Jojo consider writing an alternative ending to Me Before You?

No!

Will Jojo write a version of Me Before You from Will’s perspective?

There aren’t any plans to do so.

What are Jojo’s tips for aspiring authors?

To read newspaper articles and be aware of news events, as there is much inspiration there! Jojo also recommends reading a lot to work out which writing styles do and don’t work. Write every day and set a protected time to do so. Don’t give up if this is what you would truly like to do!
