Interview, Giveaway, and Review: Six Moon Summer by SM Reine

Release Date: April 26, 2011
Rated: YA
Author site: http://www.smreine.com

I have the lovely Sara with me today! Her debut book, Six Moon Summer, is released this month and in anticipation, she is giving away a signed copy!

Here is a little about her book:

Rylie's parents are going through a messy divorce.  They send her to summer camp to get her out of the way of their fighting lawyers, but she's just as miserable at the girls' camp as she was at home-- there's nothing vegetarian for her to eat at the mess hall, she hates hiking and archery, and the other campers taunt Rylie mercilessly.

One night, the bullying goes too far, and Rylie runs away.  She doesn't get far.  It's a full moon, and she isn't alone in the forest.  A wild animal mauls her.  She's certain she won't survive.

Instead of dying, she wakes up unharmed in her cabin the next morning.  The only sign that something has changed are the healed scars on her chest, her increasingly keen senses, and her sudden craving for raw, bloody meat.  A boy from the other camp seems to know what's happening to her, but Rylie isn't sure if she can trust herself with Seth.

Rylie soon learns that she only has until the end of summer before she becomes just like the monster that attacked her: a man-eating werewolf hungry for human flesh.  Unless she can find a cure, she's only six moons away from transforming forever and losing her life to the hunger...

 My review:

I love werewolf books. I loved this one, go figure, but I also loved that it was completely different from other YA paranormal books I have read about wolves. This took on a completely different creation story. It's harder to find, where werewolves are the evil creatures in books, so I loved this. I also loved that there was hope for Rylie. That her fate wasn't fixed.

This had some romance to it, not enough to overpower the paranormal mystery that is going on, but enough to balance out some of the harsher realities in the book. I loved the narration. Rylie was such a great character to follow as I got to see her change from who she was to what she could be.

This was a fantastic werewolf tale from debut author SM Reine. I am excited to continue the series and it shows great promise. Packed with tons of adventure, teen angst, touch of romance and twisted with paranormal, it makes for a perfect read!

My Rating:
   

Now, Sara was willing to answer a few questions about her work.  I'd like to thank Sara for letting me review the book, give a copy away and to ask her a few questions on her book!!

How did you come up with the idea for the book? Why werewolves?
I underwent a huge change when I was seventeen years old. The person I had been through childhood disappeared and the person I would become as an adult emerged. Life was nuts back then. So much happened to me over the course of two or three months that I was unrecognizable when I came out the other side. I was inspired to share a similarly dramatic coming of age in Six Moon Summer, and what better metaphor for such changes than werewolves? Of course, I'm still human, so Rylie had a much harder time than I did.

In the world you created, are werewolves the only paranormal creature?
I suppose if werewolves are possible, anything else is, too! But I have plenty of stories to tell about werewolves, which are a dwindling population in the Seasons of the Moon series. I don't plan on getting into other fantasy creatures in these books. Werewolves seem to show up in books where they're a secondary feature beside vampires, so it seems fair to let them have the focus for once.

When you wrote Six Moon Summer, did you outline or plot the whole book or did you figure things out as you wrote?
I had an idea of where the story was going, but I'm too disorganized to outline. I wrote the beginning, and then the end, and then the climax, and kind of hopped around through the rest from there. All the most dramatic scenes come first as they occur to me. Once I have the skeleton of the novel, I fill in the blanks. See? Disorganized.

Do you have an idea on how many books will be in this series?

I have four books planned (one for each season). I hope to release the second book in the latter half of this year, with books three and four coming in 2012. The entire series will encompass about a year of Rylie's life.

Where will the book be available for purchase after its release?

Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I'm also working on getting into the iBookstore. All avenues of purchase will be listed on my website (http://smreine.com/) when it releases on April 29th.

What authors do you read? Do you read paranormal novels?
I read so many authors! Almost everything I read has paranormal elements. I'm on a huge indie author kick at the moment, so I've been enjoying the likes of Tess Oliver and Katie M John. My comfort reads are Stephen King, Tamora Pierce, Seanan McGuire, Kit Whitfield, and, of course, JK Rowling.

Now for the giveaway! I'm giving readers until April 20th to enter the contest. The contest is open internationally and anyone may enter! All you have to do is leave a comment with a valid email address.  Easy, right?

This does sound good and I love the disorganised planning! I kind of do a similar thing, I am always interested in how writer's go about writing their books.
