Author Interview: Emily Sowden

ABOUT EMILY:

IMG_1139 colourI was born in Hampshire, U.K., to loving parents who taught me everything I ever needed to know. Mum gave me her love of reading and passion for words, while Dad taught me patience and helped to develop my renown optimism, all together creating a little monster that spent most of its time day-dreaming, reading and writing.

As I grew, my love of film, television and video games developed; passions which continued to balloon and mutate until it was all I could ever think about.

In 2013, I graduated from Bath Spa University with a Ba/Hons in Creative Writing after studying for three years, focussing on professional writing, script writing, and novel writing.

Today I’m a news editor for Pocket Gamer, and have previously contributed to GameSpew and Brash Games.

As for the exciting stuff: after plenty of ups and downs since leaving university, I joined the Oftomes family in May 2016 and my debut YA novel, Trapped in Silverwill be available on February 7th 2017, with two more books to follow.

HER BOOK:

Courage comes from a shadowed place in our hearts; a blurred line that straddles love and sheer stupidity.
To seventeen-year-old Ava, wild woodcats, hungry stragglers, and simple-minded townsfolk are the evils she’s grown accustomed to. But when Ethan, an unusual man with eyes of smoke and fire opal, enters her world she quickly understands that there are worse things out there than drunken men and carnivorous forest creatures. She’s a specialised liar and a hell of a fighter, but against a group of animalistic men called Berserkers she struggles to survive the encounter as the desperate swing of a dagger is all it takes to change her life for good.

Half-dead and hunted by the Berserker’s leader when he forms a monstrous obsession with her, Ava escapes his pursuit in an unfamiliar land full of impossible creatures, unlikely allies, and the man she doesn’t know whether to kiss or kill.

But after dreadful news of her missing brother surfaces, Ava becomes more involved in the centuries-long war and begins to unravel the reasons behind her relentless nightmares, discovering truths long-buried in a violent history of love, loss and betrayal.

GET TO KNOW EMILY:

What is the one word that describes you best as an author?

Scatty, and I guess a bit odd.

Do you love reading as much as writing?

I absolutely love reading but I’m so fussy with books sometimes. I also never read in the lead-up to a huge writing session otherwise it affects my writing.

What are the things you love most being an author?

I love making things out of nothing. Like, I was thinking the other day to myself, ‘My characters  and worlds wouldn’t exist if I didn’t imagine them’, I’m essentially their book-mum and they, my book-babies. It’s a really wonderful feeling.

What is the hardest thing in writing Trapped in Silver?

The hardest thing sometimes was pushing through the rejection. Trapped in Silver got re-written a couple of times until it was near-perfect and through those periods actually gathering up the emotional strength to sit down at the computer and start re-writing ‘chapter one’ again was really something, especially after a 10-hour shift.

Where did you get the idea of Trapped in Silver?

Okay, (sorry if you read this mum), but I was sitting through my AS-Biology class when I was about 17. We were one term in and I’d already accepted that I was more likely to sprout wings than I was to pass the class so I spent most of my lessons day-dreaming. I’d just finished reading the first Twilight book and I got so mad that the Vampires were sparkly beasts instead of the hideous, gnarled creatures of legend that I wrote half a book with Vampires in it. Eventually as the years went on the Vampires turned into Demons and Berserkers and thus Trapped in Silver was born. I actually kept a traditional Vampire (or Vampyr, as it’s written) in my book for one scene just to allow myself a little nostalgia.

What’s your favorite quotation from Trapped in Silver?

It’s a long one but it’s from chapter 6, describing the Equinox festival: “We arrived on the far side of town just after sunset and the festivities were in full swing. There were so many people singing, drinking and dancing in the city’s central parks and halls that it made my head hum with excitement. People passed around glasses filled with all colours of liquid and drank them down before pouring someone else another. Around the fire pits the townsfolk shared their pipes with nomads and traded stories of adventures and old loves, teaching the small crowds of people ditties they’d picked up on their travels. From wooden stalls the traders sold wildmeats and hair adornments made up of bloodroot and lilacs, while passing musicians led people of all backgrounds in the songs of spring.” – I actually surprised myself by how well the detail came out that it’s always stuck with me. There are more romantic ones, sure, but this is definitely one of my favourites.

To whom do you recommend your book?

I’d recommend my book to anyone who’s interested, to be honest. It’s a young adult fantasy by name but with elements of horror, light-hearted humour, and new adult themes tucked into the folds, it’s definitely suitable for people between the ages of 14 and 120.

Book Review: The Princess Saves Herself in this One by Amanda Lovelace

The Princess Saves Herself in this OneThe Princess Saves Herself in this One by Amanda Lovelace

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Princess Saves Herself in this One is a collection of poems written by Amanda Lovelace. It is written in four parts mainly the princess, the damsel, the queen and you. This isn’t the book one will enjoy. Instead, it will tear you into pieces and will make you think twice about life. It explores love, loss, grief, healing, empowerment, and inspiration.

I give the book 4.5 out of 5 stars! The book was great. It’s relatable—the words are so deep and well played. Different emotions filled my heart while reading the poems. I have read a few poetry books but this one’s a bit different. The writing style’s new to me which I loved. This book is definitely a MUST read. Highly recommend it to everyone!

“if
love
is a
battlefield,
then I
must have
forgotten
all of
my armor

home.

– a war I never agreed to fight.

All Kat Montgomery wanted was a fun night out on
the town. What she got was a death warrant. As it turns out, the quaint little
hamlet of Mystic Harbor, Maine houses more than sandy beaches and adorable
B&B’s. Beneath the New England charm rests a deadly world where shifters,
demons, vampires, and angelic hunters all vie for power.
A world where magic is the greatest weapon.
Magic that Kat now possesses.
After that one fateful night, she can feel the
changes beginning to take hold of her. Only problem, she doesn’t even know what
she’s turning into. With threats hiding in plain sight, deciphering the lines
between friend and foe is nearly impossible. As if things couldn’t get any
worse, Kat learns her only real ally rests in the one person she can’t stand:
Reese Blackburn, an insufferably handsome magician whom the town fears most.
Kat’s very soul is at stake, and destiny doesn’t
seem to be playing out in her favor. Can these two unlikely partners challenge
fate itself before it’s too late?

EXCERPT:
 
Curiosity got the better of me as I looked over
my shoulder, only to find the last human being I ever wanted to see heading
towards the back of the store. That familiar knot formed in my stomach, as it
always did anytime Reese Blackburn was near. I rocked back and forth on my
heels, trying my best to keep my patience in check as the old guy in front of
me continued buying virtually every lottery ticket available.
Come on, come on, come on. I needed to get out
of here. PRONTO.
Footsteps started making their way to the
counter from the back of the store, and I immediately deflated, knowing a
confrontation was now inevitable.
“Montgomery,” spoke a silvery voice directly
behind me.
I regrettably turned to face the ass-hat in
question, giving him my best artificial, Pan Am smile. “Blackburn.”
The guy always looked like he’d just waltzed off
the set of a Tim Burton movie, and tonight was no different. He was dressed in
his typically peculiar attire, sporting a gothic knee-length horseman’s jacket
laced in chains, a pair of black slacks, a silk tapestry vest, and dark brogue
boots adorned with skulls on the metallic buckles.
“Never thought I’d see you south of Providence
Street,” he remarked in the sarcastic fashion he always saved for me. “Get lost
on your way to the country club?”
“No, I was actually out looking for your heart.
Should’ve known better that it’s long gone,” I retorted. “And what about you?
Never thought I’d see you out in public on a full moon. Get lost on your way to
your cult meeting in the woods?”
“That’s later in the evening,” he chuckled,
flashing me that dimpled smile and perfect set of pearly whites. Such
infectious, boyish charm seemed misplaced, considering he was stab-worthy. It
really was a shame, because Reese wasn’t half bad looking.
And by ‘half’, I mean not entirely.
Sure, he had cheekbones that could cut glass,
not to mention bedroom eyes so amber they looked to be stowing flames inside
them, but still… Okay, okay. Even I had to admit, Blackburn was hardly an
eyesore.
Even with my heeled boots, I still stood a good
half foot shorter than him, but his lean frame thankfully made him less
imposing.
The old guy in front of me started ordering
cigarettes as well, causing my fisted fingernails to start biting into my
palms. Knowing how quickly our conversations always descended into verbal smack
downs, I grasped at anything I could think of to divert us back to small talk
until I could move to the register.
“Did you go to the game earlier?”
Reese shrugged. “I considered it, but then I
started thinking of other excruciating things I’d rather do, like have a root
canal, and I decided to pass.”
“You heading to the bonfire?” I tried again. He
merely cocked a brow, and I realized how ridiculous I sounded. “Oh, that’s
right. You don’t do anything fun. How could I forget?”
“If you call watching a bunch of drunken idiots
gyrate around and trash a field while you suffocate from smoke inhalation
‘fun,’ then yes—I don’t like fun.”
“It wouldn’t kill you to be normal, ya’ know.”
“Maybe, maybe not. Haven’t tried it.”
“So, Mr. High and Mighty, what superior plans do
you have this evening?”
“Test my alcohol limits, take off my clothes,
and harass innocent bystanders.” He thumped the side of his head. “Oh, wait a
minute. No, that’s your friends.”
“At least I have some.”
He stole a look outside and leered. “With friends like that, I consider myself
grateful that I don’t.”
“Bite me.”
“I probably shouldn’t. Wouldn’t want to get
rabies.”
“I beg to differ. Foaming at the mouth would
probably be an improvement for you. Anything to get you to stop talking.”
He smirked. “Touché, Princess.”

The Greatest Gift of All

a36040fe-d795-45a8-b6c2-865dfbde7a96.jpg

A friend is a gift from God. What then if I received a lot? I wasn’t expecting to be friends with them at all—zesties and the intense squad. In fact, we once had a problem with each other. I had different plans with different people. And guess what? Those plans were burned into ashes. As it turns out, I had the best moments of my life with the people I least expect to be with. Good things really happen when you least expect it.

I was in a different section, away from my 2 best friends—we’re a group of three. It was one of the hardest situations I’ve dealt with my whole life. It was really hard for me to communicate with them, given the fact that we have different schedules. That caused me to lie low, especially to one of us—her. I don’t know what exactly happened to both of us. I just woke up one day and feeling like maybe, just maybe, we’re not matched to be friends.

I had to think and give both of us some space. I gave her time to think and I guess that’s when we decided it’s mutual. We tried to fix us, but unfortunately, it just really didn’t work. That made things harder because we’re a group of three. Although good thing is, we’re not in any way ignoring each other. We still say hi and smile at each other; just not the best of friends we used to be.

I don’t have any close friends in my section who I can really talk about everything. Big thanks to my bestie zesties, they let me join in and accepted me for who I am. Then followed, the intense squad was formed. I thought things were falling apart back then. But then I realized things are just becoming what they should really be–it’s starting to be right. God put change to my life so one day; I can open my eyes and see everything I’ve been trying to find was right beside me all along. I just really have to give it a chance.

A lot of things changed from then on. I started to know how to figure out the right friends I should be with and I became a better person. I guess that’s the greatest gift of all, to be a friend and to be given friends. That’s when I also realized we can’t gain anything without losing something.

Forever does not go on unchanged.

Caitriona Hayden’s destiny as the Dracopraesi dragon’s North Star is no clearer to her than it was weeks ago. However, Cait’s eternal future seems a minor concern while the vengeful elves continue taunting the dragons, now using violence against the human population in their desire for war.

Battles of war aren’t the only ones fought.

King Corrin struggles to make peace with his coming end, and as his family bonds heal, stronger relationships and alliances form among Cait and her dragons. Theo may have won her heart, but Oliver fills a void long left by the passing of her uncle, and each dragon is a part of Cait’s family.

But a darkness bleeds through to change their world.

When faced with decisions of life and death, Cait, Theo, and demigod Dante must choose unpredictable paths, chance outcomes of eternal consequences, and make dubious promises. As Cait displays unexpected abilities, complications arise, more details of her destiny are revealed, and she discovers the inherent risks of fearing change.

Every era has a beginning and an end. There are things in the world no one is meant to stop.

BLOOD OF STARS AND GODS is book two in the exciting Stars and Souls trilogy, sequel to Amazon #1 Contemporary Fantasy: FIRE OF STARS AND DRAGONS!

A dragon’s fire cannot be tamed.

In 22nd century sovereign America, women should be seen and not heard. Unfortunately, twenty-one-year-old CAITRIONA HAYDEN didn’t get that memo!

Determined to make her way in the world following the death of her uncle, being “seen” is the least of Cait’s problems.

Someone’s trying to kill her.

Ordained to guard and protect her, when Theo Pendragon claims Cait as his ward, he finds more than he expects as the flames of passion ignite within the dragon for the first time. But Theo is not alone in his desire, and he must learn to fight for what he wants, even if it costs him his best friend.

Dante, a powerful demigod and beloved friend to Theo, has spent centuries pursuing intellectual endeavors rather than indulging in the heat of desire. But everything changes when Cait arouses an attraction he cannot deny.

But Dante isn’t the only one with a vested interest in Cait’s future.

America’s monarch, an ancient vampire named Corrin, puts no stock in the frivolity of love, and yet a proper queen would boost his approval rating amongst the people. Marrying Cait could hold the key to his survival.

Now, love, desire and need force Cait into an impossible situation with dire consequences.

Soon, Cait goes from studying for college exams to fighting for a future she never knew she wanted with a man she never imagined she could love. But the key to her future is held in the one secret she has yet to uncover.

Four clans have been at war for centuries: the Kodiak, the Raven, the Wolf and the Ram. Through brutal war tactics, the Ram have dominated the region, inflicting death and destruction on their neighbors.

Seventeen-year-old Zo is a Wolf and a Healer who volunteers to infiltrate the Ram as a spy on behalf of the allied clans. She offers herself as a Ram slave, joining the people who are called the “nameless.” Hers is a suicide mission – Zo’s despair after losing her parents in a Ram raid has left her seeking both revenge and an end to her own misery. But after her younger sister follows her into Rams Gate, Zo must find a way to survive her dangerous mission and keep her sister safe.

What she doesn’t expect to find is the friendship of a young Ram whose life she saves, the confusing feelings she develops for a Ram soldier, and an underground nameless insurrection. Zo learns that revenge, loyalty and love are more complicated than she ever imagined in the first installment of this two-book series.
