On Tour with Prism Book Tours
“I shouldn’t have to tell you this isn’t a fairy story…”
After her parents’ car crash ten years before, Amie Wentworth trusts books more than people. She may be a writer, but she believes in reality over fiction. She ignores the unexplained mysteries surrounding her, never mind the dreams of a past life, or the fact she can fry technology with a touch. Not even a timely invitation from her long-lost uncle in England gives Amie incentive for anything other than ire.
Until she is stabbed in an alley and brought back to life by a handsome stranger. Soon Amie is dragged into the very sort of tale she is used to selling. To make matters worse, the man who saved her life keeps turning up and her would-be-murderer is still at large.
After crossing the Atlantic to her father’s homeland, she discovers a world beyond imagining. Silver Hollow is a place of ancient traditions and supernatural dangers, where everything is the opposite of what it seems and few escape sane. Faced with an impossible choice, Amie is forced to confront a deadly family legacy while remembering a life she soon wishes to forget.
**Previously published in 2012. This NEW EDITION has been FULLY REVISED AND EXPANDED. The original novel is now no longer available.**
About the Author
Jennifer Silverwood was raised deep in the heart of Texas and has been spinning yarns a mile high since childhood. In her spare time she reads and writes and tries to sustain her wanderlust, whether it’s the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, the highlands of Ecuador or a road trip to the next town. Always on the lookout for her next adventure, in print or reality, she dreams of one day proving to the masses that everything really is better in Texas. She is the author of two series—Heaven’s Edge and Wylder Tales—and the stand-alone titles Stay and Silver Hollow.
- When and why did you start writing?
Like most authors, I’ve been telling stories in one form or medium for long as I can remember. It’s been a lifelong passion I didn’t take seriously until the middle of my failed college career. One day I reached a point where I could choose to keep studying a field I didn’t really care about, or I could finally write an original novel. So I quit school, picked up an extra job and learned how to self-publish. I haven’t regretted it.
- Is Silverwood a pen name? If so, how did you come up with it?
Yes, ironically the pen name came about the same time as the original incarnation of Silver Hollow. I was working on the early chapters and reading them aloud to my best friends (my “Jo & James”). I knew I wanted to write with a nom de plum and made up a list of potentials. “Silver” was in half of them, but my friends declared Silverwood sounded like an author they would read. I hope that reins true for my potential readers.
- Describe Silver Hollow in one sentence.
A disillusioned woman finds belonging with family she had forgotten in a dangerous and magical land. Hard to pin it down in one sentence!
- List a few authors or books comparable to Silver Hollow (fans of XYZ will love Silver Hollow).
Silver Hollow shares elements works by Steve McHugh, Emigh Cannaday’s “Annika Brisby Series” and Lisa Blackwood’s “In Deception’s Shadow” series. If you’re a fan of lost legacies, second-chance romances and adult fairy tales, this is the book for you.
- How many books will be in the Borderlands Saga?
I already have outlined part of the sequel, Blackbriar Cove, with ideas for at least two more books after that. I decided to name this a saga because I see this series going on as long as I have fresh ideas. There is so much I hope to explore in the Borderlands, from other gates around our world to the land across the veil. I would love to still be writing books about Amie & co. ten years from now.
- When can we expect book 2?
I plan on writing and publishing book two winter this next year. Since it took me a year to expand and rewrite Silver Hollow, I’m going to start yesterday. 😉
Thanks for having me, K.D!
