Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Wolf Sirens is roughly set in the Bega Valley in country N.S.W Australia. I believe in writing, to a certain extent, what you know, so I used a lot of my experience growing up in a country town to create the mood and tone of the book.
I now live in Adelaide South Australia, maybe one day I will set a book there too.
When did you first start writing?
I was always a writer, though I didn't know it. I used writing about my feelings as a creative outlet. I kept diaries and I am a poem writer. I started out telling my brother and friends stories that I made up and then I progressed to re writing fairy tales. I have a flair for drama but I shied away from the spotlight and hated drama club. My whole family is very artistic but I never found a medium that I felt I had a true affinity with. Eventually I realised I wasn't like anybody else and I had been doing what I loved, I just hadn't realised it! I knew writing was hard work and that belief has been reinforced the more I write. With the advent and acceptance of indie publishing I have been able to write what I wanted to and get it out there. Its a good time to be a writer.

Smashwords book reviews by Tina Smith

  • Hollowland on Sep. 01, 2012

    Amanda Hocking flys into the action. With a strong female protagonist whose role could easily and would have at one time been a male character. A mark ofgood writing is taking the unbelievable anfd making the reader become so involved that it makes it real. I couldn't or didn't want to stop reading. The flow of action is maintained and there are no boggy bits. Its not literary fiction and at times I wished thete was more detail and reflection but ultimately I didn't care and found hollowland quite refreshing. All the zombies were individual in there states of varying decay and lazlo reminded me of cole from ths maggie steifvater shiver trilogy. He was nicer and less fleshed out but I appreciated the role reversal between the characters where Remy was the one saving him. I look forward to reading more of her writing.
  • My Blood Approves on Sep. 05, 2012

    I had read Hollowland and realy liked it. Being that this was the first Amanda Hocking and much loved by my readers, I went into it with enthusiasim but I have to agree with some other reviews which mentioned that it read like Twilight fan fiction. I found the love interest bland and the whole dynamic a little off kilter. No depth and the ending didn't really wrap it up. Mae came off as creepy. The start to the second in the series felt better written. But I wont rush to continue reading the series. - However I loved Hollowland and Hollowmen. Which were action packed.
  • Hollowmen (The Hollows #2) on Sep. 10, 2012

    I found it as action packed as the first - if not more so. I love that Amanda isn't affraid to cull characters and you never know whats around the corner. I like the evolution of the zombies - the way they screetch to the others and never die. When it ended I was eager to read more and dissapointed to be finished. This book would make a great movie. Fun , scary, suspence filled. Bring back Lazlo!
  • Virtue on Sep. 20, 2012

    The pace is typical of Amanda's work. Mystical creatures action and a complete well rounded tale of true love. I found the setting enchanting. The characters were atypical and Amanda weaves a snow white esc storyline with a slightly unusual "prince" in Lux. I was interested in the idea of taking catholic legend of angels and good and evil, virtue and peccati and making them fairytale characters with derivatives of those names. This read like an extended childrens fairytale. What it lacked in depth it made up for in pace. Amanda proves she can tell a story.
  • Rogue Hunter: Inquest on Nov. 06, 2012

    Kevis Hendrickson’s Rogue Hunter First impressions: It brought to mind movies such as The Fifth Element, Star Wars and definitely Star Trek. I love a strong female protagonist, who kicks ass. I even liked the villain Skringler (perhaps a little too much) who had some great classic lines and an accent, which made him hard to hate. The description of his sex appeal was lacking, where the main character’s was not, nor was her love interest’s allure. Skringler possibly should have been introduced with more description, earlier in the plot -though Kevis seems to favour slow discovery of important plot aspects. I was less interested in the star ship war chapters at the end, than I was in the conflict between Zyra and Skringler and the triangle between the two and Zyra’s lover, during the battle. I liked the history between them which seeped from the page. The beginning was vividly drawn; it however lagged slightly after the first chapters until chapter 13 when things suddenly changed a little, and there is hope again. I love the unexpected and the thrill of wondering how the character will inevitably end up in the situation portrayed at the beginning of the story. After some thought I wondered what did happen with Molly that shook her up, before the book begins? Zyra is emotionally distant even from herself and I assumed quite traumatised from spending most of her adolescent life hunting. Zyra’s fight in the end was reminiscent of the ballsy tenacity of the character Lisbeth Salander. Skringler is relentless, Zyra determined as a dog with a bone. The only thing that was lacking for me was the description of the scene setting, at certain points, like the escape in the garbage disposal bay and some things such as the weapons which are only explained as they appear in the story. Boris Skringler was too likable, being that he was supposedly a man with a ruthless reputation and Zyra’s motivation at certain points wasn’t as convincing to me as it should have been, because if she had killed a lot before, then why take so long to kill a certain character who hurt, taunted and irritated her so much - for me this needed a clearer reason. I liked the ending (no spoilers here). It felt like an important chapter in something bigger.
