Everville: The First Pillar
Owen Sage is the emblematic college freshman at EastonFallsUniversity. With all the worries about his first year in college, he was not prepared for what would happen next. His way of life was flipped upside down when he mysteriously crossed into another dimension, into the beautiful land of Everville. His excitement was abruptly halted when he discovered that there was a darkness forged against both the natural world, which he knew well, and the new land which he discovered, Everville. He must devise a plan to save both worlds while joining forces with the race of Fron and The Keepers, whom both harbor hidden secrets he must learn in order to gain power over the evil that dwells in The Other In Between. With a race against time to save both worlds, his short time at EastonFalls did not quite prepare him for the evil, dark forces he must fight in order to conquer The Other In Between.

Hi all: I’m Olga and as I’ve been promising you I’m going to be bringing you authors as guests to my blog once a week. I am leaving them tell you in their own words what they think any readers would like to know.

My first guest is Gem Thomas, who is indeed a Gem and real character. See what you think and support his work! I for one I’m fascinated by his new project!

1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My name is GEM. And I am a writer and can firmly state that my recent work is above all the rest in the UK and US.

2. What do you do when you are not writing?

Live it up. Have fun.

3. When did you first start writing and when did you finish your first book?  

I first started writing when I was a child. I created all types of fiction. Action stories were my favorite. All the time, superheroes would be fighting villains in my stories. I recall writing what is now called fan fiction. At the time, I did not know of this genre. It was my story about another boy who floated down the Mississippi river, next to Tom Sawyer. I stopped writing so much in high school. By college, I was too busy to write fiction. After college, I finished my first novel in September of 2010.

4.How did you choose the genre you write in?

I cover many genres and plan on moving into more, once I am clear of my newest novel. The Strong Roads Series are historical-fiction works. I went to Hawaii right after college to learn more about myself. While in the local library, quite early in my adventure, I learned about an amazing tale of the Spanish being in Hawaii centuries before Captain Cook. I was immediately intrigued. I always enjoyed learning about world history so, I was able to turn this legend into a narrative. I am excited to say I am the first person to have done this.

5. Do you want to talk about your newest work?

My newest novel is titled Strong Roads: Blues and Greens and Blood. It is the continued story of the main character in sixteenth-century Hawaii. What interests so many people, I think, is the potential of it being a true story. My main character is made a high chief by the aristocracy and he falls in love with an even higher-classed woman. Their relationship breaks social norms. Then, war erupts in the Island and their lives are forever changed. I combined ingredients from literary classics and am pleased to share it with everyone. But, what I am doing different is releasing it in a digital format. Readers will be able to tap a character’s name and hear how it is pronounced in the ‘native’ tongue of Ancient Hawaii. This is only possible, because of modern technology. Everyone will enjoy the story and love the interactive medium it is told in.

6. Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?

Yes. I have a crowdfunding campaign. I am raising money for advertisements associated with the release of Strong Roads: Blues and Greens and Bloods. Indiegogo.com is hosting the project and allows for international contributors, which is perfect because my story is able to be enjoyed in the international scene, especially throughout Spanish-speaking countries. There are plenty of rewards for everyone that donates to my crowdfunding project. www.gemthomas.com has information.

Thanks!
