Fae by Emily White – Blog Tour Interview & Giveaway

FAE (Auri, #2) by Emily
White

Release Date: February 22, 2014
Paperback, 320 pages
Genre: YA / Fantasy / Fiction

Not all fae’ri tales come with a happy ending.

Ella thought taking care of the ego-bloated Mamood god would be a sure way to bring peace to the galaxy and satisfy her taste for revenge.

But she was wrong.

Despite the fact their god is gone, the Mamood refuse to abandon their attack on the planet Soltak and Ella’s own so-called friends start to turn against her. And with Soltak dying–its oceans drying up and its plants withering in the ground–Ella and Cailen suspect there’s a new enemy at work. As more people die and more water is leached from the planet, they both prepare for something straight from a nightmare.
The fae are coming.
Emily White is a nerd. 
She prefers her men fully clothed and donning bow-ties, her commas British, her books cheesy with big, overly-dramatic explosions, her characters awkward and endearingly real,* and watching her movies in authentic turn-of-the-century theaters. When not exposing her nerdy self to the world, she’s creating her own friends and putting them in horrible, yet sometimes humorous situations.
Check out her YA Space Opera series starting with Elemental (Spencer Hill Press, 2012), continuing with FAE (February 2014), and ending sometime in the near future with a book she has yet to write. She’s also authored a collection of Steampunk (zombie, werebot romance) flash fiction, if you’re into those kinds of things, titled “To Love or Die in a Steamy-Reamy World.”

If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?

Past, absolutely. Specifically the Renaissance in Paris.

If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose?

Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Jonathan Swift, Plato, and James Dashner. These are my favorite authors. My ego would take a total hit of course, but I couldn’t pass up an opportunity like that.

What is one book everyone should read?

Obviously Lord of the Rings. I mean, do I even need to offer a reason for this? 😉

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.

It’s dark, it’s whimsical, and it’s a modern day Darth Vader story with a female protagonist.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?

Soooo many. I need to focus on one. I keep wanting to work on them all. I’ve got a project going with a fellow author. A super secret project full of steampunk awesomeness. I also have Destructor (#3 of The Auri Wars), #2 of Tales of Morcah, and a pet project I’ve been working on for a while that’s a Jane Austen meets Poe twist.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?

Monster, by Skillet is Ella’s song, definitely. Demons, by Imagine Dragons is Cailen’s. I love listening to them so much!

How did you know you should become an author?

Well, I grew up as Emily Dickinson, so that was always a part of my life. But I when I was a child I realized that it was the only thing I ever really wanted to do. It was the only thing that brought me joy. I’d give up playing with my toys and friends so I could click at my parents’ old typewriter. That’s when I knew it was something I’d have for the rest of my life. I NEEDED to be published. It was the only acceptable outcome.

Hidden talent?

I can say the alphabet backwards. Fast. This ability has won me prizes. 🙂

What movie and/or book are you looking forward to this year?

The Maze Runner!!!!!!

Give us a glimpse into a typical day in your day starting when you wake up till you lie down again.

I wake up 7:00 (at the latest, often earlier), enjoy a cup of coffee for 15 minutes before my two boys wake up, talk to my mom for about an hour, get my eldest started at school work and go through the lessons (I homeschool), write a sentence or two when I have a chance (aka in between lessons when he’s doing work on his own), play with my youngest when I’m not writing a sentence, lunch, nap time for the boys and major, serious writing time for me. I get about 2 hours of good work time here. Then they wake up and we finish some school work we hadn’t gotten to in the morning, I make dinner, spend time with family, and then go to bed. A boring day. I have a very unglamorous life. 🙂

How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?

Oh my goodness, I completely forgot to celebrate!! It was such a surprise. Spencer Hill Press had approached me and I guess I was just a little out of it.

What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I’m actually a very depressed, brooding person around people who know me best (aka my husband and my mom).

If you could take over the world, would you?

Yes. Yes.

Which of your characters is a portrayal of you?

Ella is very close to being me. A lot of her darker moments are very me, definitely. Out of all my characters, though, Lilly of ALMOST NIGHT is 100% me. A lot of her scenes are inspired by things I actually felt and did as a teenager.

What is your favorite scene in the book?

My absolute favorite scene is the last one. It still gives me chills.

    A ‘fairy’ tale including fairy characters? I’d have to say Peter Pan then. If just a fairy tale in general, then Alice in Wonderland! 🙂
