Author Interview - Keira Michelle Telford

Morning All,

Today, I have Keira Michelle Telford, the author  SILVER: Acheron (A River of Pain) of doing an interview for us. Here we go:

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
Because, deep down, everyone wants to believe in the power of enduring love.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
At the moment, I’m working on the fifth book in the SILVER Series, which will comprise ten books in its entirety. There are seven books in the first part of the series, collectively called The Amaranthe Chronicles. I hope that this part of the series will be completed by the end of 2012. The second part of the series, The Outlier Trilogy, will be released in 2013.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
Being a Quarterfinalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?

For Acheron overall, it would be: Emilie Autumn – I Want My Innocence Back. For Ella ‘Silver’ Cross specifically, it would be: Emilie Autumn – Opheliac.

What's one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors?
I’m going to steal this advice from Emilie Autumn:
“You can’t use the people around you as a judge of what you do. If you do it, you’d better be f---ing strong enough to just do it the way that you want. And if you’re not, then don’t get out there and sell it.”

Can you see yourself in any of your characters?
All of them. Silver is my arrogance, my defiance, my addiction, my strength and my greatest weakness. Alex is my heart – the soppy, romantic part that believes in eternal love. Luka is my guilty pleasure, lusting after women in a way that only a lovable rogue like him could get away with. Maydevine is my sense and reason, and my level-headedness. Alice is my manipulation and my selfishness.

Which authors have influence you most and how?
Samuel Beckett’s work encouraged me to explore a more abstracted style of writing, and taught me how powerful a metaphor can be. Edgar Allan Poe nurtured my love of the macabre, and taught me how great passion and great sorrow are inextricably linked.
