2011 Countdown {Day 2} - Author Interview w/ Beth Revis & ARC Giveaway!

111 Lovely Comments!

 

2011 countdown image day 2

Hey guys! Today I have the pleasure to welcome here at my bookish life a 2011 debut author! I was really lucky of getting a copy of her debut book, “Across The Universe” at the NY Comic Con this year and I LOVED IT! You can see how much HERE!

beth revis

Beth has been awesome and agreed to answering some questions, to add to it, I will be giving my personal ARC of “Across The Universe” to a lucky winner! Giveaway deets are at the end of the post… Enjoy!

 

031610_revis_0191

When did you first start writing?

I've always loved stories, but I cranked out my first novel in my sophomore year in college.

Have you always enjoyed Sci-fi?

Not really! Adult sci fi is often heavy on the sci and light on the fi. The science is described in great detail and that's great for people who like it--but I'd much rather focus on the characters and story more than the science--which is a trait of YA. YA is much more fast-paced and character-driven. Unfortunately there's not a lot of YA sci fi out there...yet!

beth revis - across the universe Why writing Young Adult?

Because YA is more fun!

Were there any Books, Movies or Writers that have inspired you?

Yes, tons! The roots of this novel came from reading other books. After reading Megan Whalen Turner’s The Thief and being awed by the twisty ending, I came up with an idea for my own twisty ending. I had the roots of a plot—but then I needed a setting. I knew I wanted to trap my characters in one place, just like in Agatha Christie’s Mousetrap or Jeanne Du Prau’s The City of Ember, but I wanted something new, so I made the setting on a spaceship.

What Inspired you to write Across The Universe?

See above :)

I just love the story and the world you created, can you tell us a bit of what we can expect from the whole trilogy?

Nope, sorry! The other two books are very top secret right now--I'm not even revealing the title of the second book yet :)

Favorites:

Favorite Sci-Fi/YA Movie? SERENITY by Joss Whedon

jenna-foxFavorite Sci-Fi/YA TV Show? FIREFLY by Joss Whedon (I really love that whole series)

Favorite Sci-Fi/YA Book?  Probably Mary Pearson's THE ADORATION OF JENNA FOX, although ENDER'S GAME is a classic.

Favorite Author? CS Lewis, although I also adore Robin McKinley, Patricia Wrede, Megan Whalen Turner....

Favorite Sci-Fi/YA Author? Orson Scott Card is just classic.

Favorite Genre that is NOT your own? YA Fantasy is my first love!

Who is your favorite of your own characters? Harley--he's the only one based on a real person, and he's just charming and fun.

Which was the hardest to write? Luthe was the hardest character to write--he's much more evil than the actual bad guy of the novel.

What would you be if not a writer? A teacher! I worked as one for six years before my publication; I love teaching and really enjoy the kids.

If you could meet any Sci-Fi/YA Character out there, Who would you like to meet? Captain Mal from FIREFLY--he's got a really cute butt! :)

Quickies:

Coffee or Tea? Coffee, especially when mixed with peppermint

Up or Down? Sidewaysserenity

Virtual or Real? Real

Right or Left? Straight ahead

Day or Night? Night

Here or There? Here now, there later.

Sooner or Later? Right now.

Light or Dark? Dark

Fast or Slow? Fast

Elder or Eldest? Elder!

Reading or Writing? Writing after reading

What is your favorite part of the writing process?

First drafts--I love getting the idea on the paper

What is your least favorite part?

Revision. ICK.

The Across The Universe Trilogy  in your own words?

A murder mystery set in space! Dun-dun-dun!

narnia What is coming up next for you?

Finishing up the rest of the trilogy!

What are you working on right now?

Just finished the second book and turned it in to my editor. Now I'm waiting for feedback and brewing ideas for Book 3.

Do you have any advice or tip to those like me that want to become a published Author someday?

Write the next book! Don't get stuck on one--give the book a chance, edit it, revise it, send it off--but if that doesn't work, write the next one.

Anything you would like to say to your fans out there?

I <3 you all! This is still so amazing and new to me!

Thank you so much for being here!

Thank YOU!

  80. GABY says:

    I can't wait to read this book. It sounds so different!!

    My first love was also Fantasy. It's interesting how we fantasy lovers end up looking for sci-fi too.

    Thanks!

  81. I'm so crazy for this book. I did an interview with Beth I'll be posting next month and I might have been a bit of a fangirl.

    Thanks for doing the interview and giveaway!

  82. Khyla says:

    awesome giveaway :)

  83. I've heard nothing but amazing things about this book. I love how unique it sounds and her sources of inspiration. The City of Ember is so good! I can't wait to read it when it's released, I'm so curious now as to the twisty ending!

  84. Loved the interview. I am beyond excited about reading this book. Thanks for the great giveaway :)

    mrsjohnson1982 at yahoo dot com

  85. From what I have read online, this book is made of awesome!

    Thank you for the interview. Now makes me want Across the Universe more!!!

  86. Lauren M says:

    Thanks for the interview and giveaway!
    I totally agree with Beth about Sci-Fi being way too intelligent sometimes for easy reading. Whenever I read adult books, I definitely stray toward the SFF genre, since it's less techie.

  87. Great interview!... I've heard a lot about this book and I look forward to reading it.

  88. Bookish says:

    Thanks for the interview. I'm surprised her favorite author is C.S. Lewis, but good choice. I liked the quickies section of the interview!

    Elise @ Bookish Delights

  89. Great interview! I can't wait to read this book :)

  90. Chrizette says:

    This book looks awesome - can't wait to read it! Thank you for the giveaway, Larissa!

  91. vickyvak says:

    Awesome interview! I don't usually read sci-fi but I really want to read this book!

  92. vickyvak says:

    Awesome interview! I don't usually read sci-fi books but I really want to read this one!

  93. Quite seriously, I don't usually consider books like these, but it intrigues me so to have some kind of genetic virus that causes early death. That is strange and intriguing. This might be a good read, I do believe!

  94. Can't wait to read this!!!

  95. geceosan says:

    I've been waiting for this book since I read the preview chapter! Really looking forward to it!

  96. Seesen says:

    I´m soo looking forward for this book :) Now that I know Beth loves Firefly too, I´m even more excited.

  97. Laura H. says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! I was originally going to pass up this giveaway because the book is tagged as young adult but after reading the synopsis I was intrigued enough that I changed my mind!

    BornajhawkATaolDOTcom

  98. It always amazes me that writers are turning in book 2 before book 1 even hits shelves! You guys are so motivated! I am in awe of you =)

  99. Great post, great interview, and great giveaway! Thanks!

    I was so excited that she mentioned The Adoration of Jenna Fox - I love that book!

  100. Great interview! I am so looking forward to read this :D

  101. Christine says:

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway! Across the universe has been on my wishlist for ages!

  102. Aubrey says:

    Great interview! Awesome giveaway. :)

  103. Melanie says:

    I just love the cover for this book! I've heard great things and can't wait to read it. :)

  104. Meredith says:

    I like that you (Beth) chose to write YA, especially in a sci-fi/fantasy type story.

    meredithfl at gmail dot com

  105. Stephany says:

    I love her response to the question: Right or Left? "Straight ahead." Makes me want to read this book even more (if possible!). It shows she has a different way of thinking besides the obvious--which is awesome. Great interview! Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  106. Spav says:

    This is one of my most wanted books of 2011. Can't wait to read it!

  107. Interesting interview - I too find adult sci-fi too heavy and hard-going, but have enjoyed more YA examples. Great giveaway!

  108. Jessica says:

    Joss Whedon FTW! Also the answer that made me giggle most was for up or down. Sideways is definitely a much more interesting answer!

    I so hope I win! I've wanted a copy of Across the Universe since I first glanced at it's gorgeous cover.

    Thanks Larissa!
