Guest Author Interview: Vone Savan + Bookmark Giveaway
Please welcome today's guest author Vone Savan! Vone is the author of Soul in Love.
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Vone: The majority of my life. But I began seriously writing about three years ago after reading a few original ghost stories during a camping trip and getting excellent reception from my family and friends.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Vone: My natural interest—even as a little kid—in ghosts, goblins, and most things paranormal.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Vone: That’s easy—to fly. The sensation to soar through the sky on a warm, breezy, spring day would be absolutely amazing; very freeing.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Vone: It’s a different take on paranormal romance—based on the YA novels I’ve read so far. The romance is between a girl and her dead boyfriend’s lingering ghost. Also, I think my book is full of controversial surprises—all the way to the end.
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Vone: For Amber Olive, I would cast Mia Wasikowska. Her face is simple, beautiful, and elegant; and her acting skills are sublime. For London Bliss, it would have to be Aaron Johnson. He has bright eyes, translucent skin, a sexy appeal, and he also acts amazingly well. In addition, I think these two would have great on-screen chemistry. I would also love the movie to be directed by Ang Lee.
Soul in Love by Vone Savan.
Soul in Love is a fictitious paranormal romance that centers on a seventeen year old girl named Amber Olive. One evening, after spending time together, Amber and her boyfriend, London, end up in a horrible car accident in which she somehow survives, but her boyfriend does not. Then, while Amber mourns his death, she begins to see and feel London again. At first, she questions her sanity, but then starts to believe in him. Through this newfound belief, she takes a metaphysical journey which ultimately answers the questions to London's appearances and her own reality. This book deals with the issues of loss, grief, and love. It challenges the idea of how far we will go to try and get back the person we once loved; even after something as profound as death. Soul in Love also raises questions relating to what each of us will truly believe after something tragic happens-spiritually and otherwise.
