Author Interview: D.H. Nevins
you! Here’s the blurb:
This post-apocalyptic tale, set across earth’s freshly devastated landscape, follows the intertwined paths of a half-angel, tormented by the necessity of completing tasks he has no choice but to follow, and the book’s heroine, Kali, who must trust her greatest enemy in order to survive.What people say about it:“Wow, I actually thought I was out of breath. Very well done…an excellent read”
“Wormwood is a must read! D.H. Nevins has createdsomething special, a fascinating read by a fantastic new writer.”
D.H. – Thanks so much for inviting me, Craig! I’ve always enjoyed writing (I remember lying on my stomach under my picnic table when I was 8 years old writing a terrible little adventure about ‘Kelly the Dolphin’) and I’ve been a daydreamer with an overactive imagination for as long as I can remember. But obviously, I’m also a little slow at connecting the dots because it took me quite a long time to finally combine those elements and write my first novel. Then one day, it just kind of happened. A few years ago, I simply sat down and started writing notes about angels and the end of the world. The notes quickly became lengthier and more detailed—and before I knew it, I had plotted out my first novel. Once I had fully formed ideas and characters, the words for the book simply flowed—I wouldn’t have been able to contain them even if I wanted to.
Me – Kelly the Dolphin sounds like it has some potential as your next project I really enjoyed reading the first five chapters of your novel, Wormwood, on your blog. It really throws the reader in at the deep end with a great introductory scene. Did you do a lot of research for the apocalyptic theme? You certainly have some fantastic imagery.
Me – You nailed it! So, what are your plans for Wormwood now? Did you find the decision between traditional and e-publishing difficult?
Me – I had the same dilemma, and I think many indie authors out there can relate too. So what’s next for D.H. Nevins, the writer?
D.H. – I’m currently plotting out lots of ideas for a sequel to Wormwood. The problem is that I have so many ideas, I keep changing my mind! Also, my characters have become so real to me, I almost feel pressured to continue telling their stories. Kali, for example, really exploded as a kick-ass character, and I’m anxious to continue on with her. Additionally, Wormwoodoriginally had a prologue where we see Tiamat’s unusual birth. I ended up loving that scene so much, I completely cut the prologue from the book and set it aside. This is now the bones of a prequel to Wormwood, which will follow a young Tiamat through a very trying and bizarre childhood. I’m thinking of calling it Monster. But this project is kind of simmering on a backburner, because the sequel has to come first.
Me – Sounds like we could be hearing about the Wormwood Trilogy soon enough! If you could resurrect any author for your End of Days celebration, who would you dig up?
D.H. – I’d dig up both William Shakespeare andDr. Seuss. Then, I would start an argument between the two of them… you know, just for fun. They would probably have the coolest soundingargument ever!
D.H. – My pleasure, Craig. It’s been an honour.
