BLOG TOUR: Transformed by E.V. Fairfall
Welcome to the Official Blog Tour for Transformed by E.V. Fairfall!
Young Adult Paranormal Romance
January 1, 2014
Summary from Goodreads:
Since the beginning, two entities have had complete, unquestioned cocntrol over Thea: the Earth and God.
But when Thea suddenly figures out that the Earth has trapped her within a forest, she discovers that the only way to set herself free is to break God's one rule; she must forsake er animal form and become human.
The result is nothing she could ever have expected. Lost within the torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is and even begins to fall in love with the one thing she always hated: a hunter.
As her act against God proves more problematic than anticipated, it is only a matter of time before her punishment may prove to be worse than Earth's entrapment.
*Interview with E.V. Fairfall*
1. When did you first start writing?
That is a good question, I guess I’ve always been writing but I started with poems. I had my first poem published when I was 10 and another when I was 12, both in “The Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans.” That was kind of where I got my confidence. From there I wrote my first book (I think I was 13) but it took me two years to write fifty pages,and I was more interested in going back to the rough draft and changing the name of the cute main character boy to whatever resent crush I had. I probably changed it about fifteen times! That book was never finished. I started writing books again years later when I met my husband.
2. What makes Transformed a unique story?
Well, let me first ask you this: how often have you read a book in which God and Mother Earth are siblings? Or a book in which Earth itself is an entity of its own, and prevents God from doing anything he wants? How often have you read a book in which Mother Earth is able to take any form except for that of a human because it is forbidden? Though Transformed is a story about finding one's self, it also explores the foibles of being human and the value of all life. It is about making mistakes and finding a solution, even if that solution isn’t what was originally intended.
3. How important are names to you in your books? Do you choose the names based on the way they sound or the meaning? Do you have any name choosing resources you recommend?
Names! Names are so important to me, mostly because I can’t actually write a character without first knowing their name. I can have the perfect scene in my head but until I find a name that I know fits the character, I just can’t write them in. I don’t pick names based on the sounds, but sometimes I pick a name because of its meaning. Mostly I just know when a name works for my character. As for resources, I tend to use lots of baby naming websites.
4. What writing advice do you have for other aspiring authors?
Never give up, and go to writers conferences! I wish I had gone to a writers conference earlier. They open your mind to a side of book writing that you normally wouldn't consider. You can meet people who love what you love, and it is a great chance to break out of your shell and read some of your work out loud. Not only that but you will meet other writers who will help you through the hard times.
5. What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Reviews! Social media posts on Facebook, Tumblr, Goodreads and so on. Word of mouth is huge for any author. There are so many great books in the world that people haven't discovered, but they only need to be pointed in the right direction.
