Author Interview – V. Saewod Tice

The Chronicles of 2020 cover Hi, V. Saewod Tice. Thank you for allowing me the honor of featuring you on my blog today. We’re pleased to have you here.

Hello!  Thanks for having me, and call me Saewod. (Pronounced – say-wood)

 

Would you like to introduce yourself to us?

Saewod is actually my real name (middle name, but all family and close friends call me by this name).  Since it’s such an unusual name – more like ‘my mom picked it during an acid trip’ (I kid) – I decided to use it in my Y/A writing.

 

How long have you been writing?

While I’ve always written in journals and created short stories and poems from childhood through my teen years, it was honestly only about three years ago that I really let myself write a full fledge story.  And it was through Fan Fiction, believe it or not.

My husband pushed that I was good enough to write without hiding behind someone else’s characters, but it wasn’t until some real life stuff that I finally listened to him and did it.  Now he’s happily making me eat the words I’d always responded with, ‘My writing is far from good enough to get noticed on its own’.  That’s right, open mouth and insert foot.

So, it’s been a little over a year since I was shoved – lovingly – into developing my own characters and building the world around them.

 

We’d love to know a little more about your book. What is its title and what genre does it pertain to?

Amongst the Ruins is a dystopian young adult novel which is the first book in The Chronicles of 2020 series. Continue reading

Compromise of the Soul Cover

So I spent the better part of yesterday dilly-dallying. I shouldn’t have, but I admit it. Ironically, it felt great to take a little break from writing since I’ve been doing a lot of it lately.

I also spent some time messing around making some digital art. One of the things that I was working on was a cover for the short story that I wrote recently titled ‘Compromise of the Soul’. Continue reading

Compromise Of The Soul

Compromise of the Soul Mini Book Cover Hiya, guys and gals. I’ve been diligently working on my piece for #SaturdayStory and have finally finished what I’ve been working on. I think this can, and I think I will, expand it into a full-blown novel. I rather like where my muse was going with this.

And since it’s his birthday today, and he sort of inspired another of my works, I will dedicate today’s piece to the delicious, and very sweet, Ben Barnes. Happy Birthday to you, Ben! ❤

So without further ado, I present to you my #SaturdayStory, Compromise of the Soul. I hope you all enjoy what I’ve written. Continue reading

Project Updates

books These last few days I’ve been working on cultivating the insane idea that’s taken over part of my mind in regards to my Tales Of Velosia series. While this series is not yet available, I’ve taken it upon myself to create a blog, a twitter, and a facebook page that centers around the world that I’ve been creating for it.

It’s been quite a daunting task, but I’m meeting it with gusto and so much excitement. In addition to sharing, and promoting the series as I go along, I’ve also been working on other projects, as well. Continue reading
