I’m Samantha and I come from another world – the original, old Silvery Earth, where people are immortal and never grow up. When I’m not switching bodies at will, I travel to other universes, especially books or movies. That’s how I met Rajveer the vampire, for example!
So, I’m taking over the interviews on this blog! And here I am, meeting people from other books/universes/whatever!
SAMANTHA: Hey, hello you two! My, aren’t we handsome… Beautiful even! *chuckle* Yes, I’m playing with the title of your book.
*Kerrien and Rithvik stare blankly at her*
Mm, okay, let’s get started. You, the tall, dark-haired guy… tell me a little about yourself.
KERRIEN: I’m Kerrien, adventurer, mercenary, bounty hunter. I’m around thirty – not that I keep track…
RITHVIK: He’s awesome! He’s a hero! He…
SAMANTHA: Please, wait for your turn?
*Rithvik pouts, Kerrien scoffs*
Thank you. Where were we? Oh, yes, besides “tall and dark-haired”, describe your appearance in ten words or less.
KERRIEN: *shrugs* Why, there’s more?
RITHVIK: Yes! He’s gorgeous, courageous and has lovely brown eyes!
KERRIEN: Shut up, Rithvik!
SAMANTHA: *LOL* Do you have an enemy or a nemesis? If so, who are they and how did they become an enemy?
KERRIEN: No, I don’t. I don’t put myself in trouble – unlike someone else *glares at Rithvik who smiles innocently* Well, except I awoke a prince who consorted with demons, so I guess eventually I’ll have to fight them…
RITHVIK: And you’ll defeat them!
KERRIEN: Spare me, Rithvik!
SAMANTHA: You two look like cat and dog! So cute! So, Kerrien, where do you live?
KERRIEN: I wander in the northern lands – city states, small kingdoms, whatever is left after the collapse of the Moren Empire. That’s how I found a cursed castle and its doomed prince.
RITHVIK: *beams* And he woke me up with the sweetest kiss!
SAMANTHA: *chuckles* Really? This so reminds me of Sleeping Beauty… So are you two involved in a relationship?
KERRIEN: No, Rithvik, just because you’re my responsibility doesn’t mean we’re together!
RITHVIK: Why did you wake me up, then?
KERRIEN: I didn’t think a kiss would wake you! I’m not a sorcerer!
RITHVIK: No, you are my savior and the most awesome…
KERRIEN: Shut up, Rithvik!
SAMANTHA: Will you two calm down? I see you don’t agree on anything! So, Kerrien, what is the biggest challenge you face in the story?
KERRIEN: Getting rid of Rithvik.
RITHVIK: You can’t get rid of me.
KERRIEN: I noticed. You spellbound me.
RITHVIK: No, I didn’t. I’m not a wizard either.
KERRIEN: Why can’t I leave you, then?
RITHVIK: Because you like me?
SAMANTHA: I think Kerrien is in denial… *grin* Let’s hear Rithvik, then! Who are you?
RITHVIK: I’m the prince of Ker Eziel, but I didn’t want to be king, so I summoned a demon and asked for his help. He made me sleep and wake up when my father’s kingdom was no more and Kerrien was by my side…
KERRIEN: And then he says he’s not a wizard. Who can summon a demon?
SAMANTHA: Mm, yeah, well, it’s his turn to speak now. So, Rithvik, describe your appearance in ten words or less.
RITHVIK: Dashing twenty-two-year-old with green eyes and a dazzling smile.
KERRIEN: *mutters* And a puppy disposition.
RITHVIK: *beams* That too. Thank you, Kerrien. It’s the first compliment I get from you.
KERRIEN: *scoffs* If being compared to a little dog feels like a compliment to you…
RITHVIK: It does, Mr. Stray Cat!
SAMANTHA: What is your role in the story, my beautiful prince?
RITHVIK: Being saved by Kerrien!
SAMANTHA: What is your relationship with him then?
RITHVIK: He’s my savior, my mentor, my caretaker, and he’s teaching me lots of very useful things – like shaving, sewing…
SAMANTHA: *LOL* I bet a prince never learned to do that!
RITHVIK: Right. And I’m teaching him about horses and tournaments.
KERRIEN: No, you’re not!
SAMANTHA: Poor Rithvik, this guy seems quite grumpy, but you’re smitten… what is it about him that you find appealing?
RITHVIK: He’s strong and independent and awesome and… I really need to find out who Braedick is.
SAMANTHA: What is the biggest challenge you face in the story?
RITHVIK: Convince Kerrien that we’re meant to be together…
KERRIEN: We’re not!
RITHVIK: We are! You kissed me awake!
KERRIEN: It was a mistake!
SAMANTHA: *turns to you* Well, I guess they are meant to be… *winks* Theirs is a fairy tale revisited, so HEA guaranteed…
Kerrien prided himself on never getting lost, not even in the deepest, darkest forest. That skill came in handy when tracking someone. It gave him an edge over whomever he was looking for. But he sometimes was taken by surprise by what he found.
Kissing a prince awake might not be the smartest thing Kerrien ever did in his life. Especially since he’s now stuck with the beautiful sleeper with a puppy disposition, and has no idea of who sent him to sleep and why.
Feeling a stray cat himself, can Kerrien put up with the young prince demands? Cats and dogs are not supposed to get along, do they?
A fairy tale retelling, a sweet m/m romance, a Silvery Earth novel.
