Interview with Ivy Devlin+Giveaway!

Stopping by to answer some of my questions today is Ivy Devlin, author of the recently released Low Red Moon! Read on and stick around for the end! (there's a giveaway waiting for you!)

Clickables: Ivy's website, Goodreads, Amazon

If there was someone thinking about buying your novel and you’re next to them-what would you say to convince them to buy it? (Of course, you can’t say you’re the author-that’d be cheating!)
I think I'd be so startled that they were looking at my book that I wouldn't be able to say anything at all! But if I could, say, put up a little card for it, I'd write: "Grief, loss, love...and a murder that must be solved no matter what the cost."

You’ve said that you wrote Low Red Moon because of the story of Little Red Riding Hood. What is it about that fable that you love?
Everything! It's just such an odd and interesting story--it's very dark, which most fairy tales are, but it's one of the few that's stayed dark, you know?

Through her flashbacks, you can tell that Avery’s parents were very loving and always involved in her life. Was your relationship with your parents similar to Avery’s?
My parents and I are close, but no, they aren't anything like Avery's parents! I can imagine them living in the house that Avery's parents do, for instance!

I really loved the connection Avery had to the forest and her appreciation for nature; did you grow up with an admiration for nature as well?
I grew up with nature everywhere and I didn't really appreciate it until I was older. (I wanted to live near a mall! Or other people, at least!)

Is there a planned sequel for Low Red Moon? Or is there another project in the works?
I've got a couple of ideas floating around... (I'm hoping for a sequel!)

  2. I love nature and I think I'd really find that I'd connect to Avery in that way. If I had written a book and I saw someone picking it up in a bookstore, I don't know if I could hide the fact that I was the author. I think my jumping up and down and squeeling would give me away. lol. :P Great interview girl! :D
