Interview: Eve Silver

NRR: When did you know you wanted to write?

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. Stories. Diaries. Poetry. I wrote my first complete book when I was nine. It was the story of an unwanted teddy bear that found a new and loving home. I even submitted that book to a publisher and received my first rejection letter.

NRR: Like many authors, I am sure there were a few pitfalls along the way. What was your first novel published, and how long did it take to get an approval from the publisher?

The first romance novel I completed was never published. It was called The Cat’s Meow, and it was supposed to be a funny, light category romance targeted to Harlequin’s then-budding Love and Laughter line. Unfortunately, my writing is neither funny nor light. That book is buried in the back yard where it belongs.Then I wrote a western/historical, paranormal about a witch on a wagon train. Not my finest moment.  Next I tried my hand at light historical romps. Only, they were anything but light. Seems like no matter how hard I try, everything I write ends up dark. Those books were filled with murder and mystery, rotting bodies, terrifying towers, dark and mysterious heroes. The first, Dark Desires was published in 2005, and the second, His Dark Kiss was published in 2006.

NRR: Sins of the Flesh, your newest novel, released September 28th. How did you get the idea for Mal, Dagan, and Alastor and their stories? 

I was toying with the concept of the antihero and a question that was buzzing around in the back of my brain: what if the villains were the heroes? What if three guys who weren't heroic or gallant or good were put in the role of hero? Could I make them likable? Could I make the villains heroes?

At the same time, I was doing research into the death mythologies of various cultures and I came up with the idea of melding the different mythologies into a world that recognized all of them as unique and viable entities.

NRR: The names and places mentioned in the Otherkin series are so elaborate and unique. How much research went into the books? Did it come from your imagination or legends?

I did a ton of research for these books. In addition to researching Egyptian, Japanese, Norse and Greek Underworld mythologies, I actually bought a copy of a translation of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. I visited museum exhibits. I read books and articles about different cultures. From there, I let imagination take over, and while I did try to stay true to the stories I had researched, I took some artistic license.

For readers who are interested, I have a pronunciation guide on the FAQ page of my website: http://www.evesilver.net

NRR: What is next for you and the Otherkin gang?
To date, the first three books are on shelves: SINS OF THE HEART, SINS OF THE SOUL and SINS OF THE FLESH. And I’m very excited because all three are available as audio books, as well. There is also a
prequel novella, SIN’S DAUGHTER available as an e-read. These books complete the trilogy arc that answers the question of who killed Lokan Krayl.

But I’m happy to say the stories don’t end there.  A fourth book, related to the first three, will be on shelves June 2011. Its title is BODY OF SIN.

And I’ll have another release in the fall of 2011, set in the same universe, but with a related rather than continuing story arc. That way, readers who haven’t had a chance to read the earlier books won’t be lost. They’ll be able to start with that fall release and work their way forward and back.
