Blog Tour Interview & Giveaway - The Ryo Myths by Perrin Pring

Appointment at the Edge of Forever
Book One
Genre: Sci-Fi / Fantasy

Book Description:
Filion felt safe in his role as a Dream Searcher. He was paid to venture into other’s dreams and exert influence over individuals whom he would never meet in the flesh.

But that was until he received The Summoning. Filion has been called to track down and protect Ryo, the last of the Chozen. She is the only hope of preventing a tide of evil driven by the Afortiori and the prospect of universal slavery if they aren’t stopped.

Time is ticking and Filion has no idea of how to find Ryo let alone how to protect her, yet destinies of planets rest in her hands. Enlisting the help of a rag-tag band of mercenaries, Filion will set out to search the wastes for Ryo. Together they will confront an evil whose power they just might have fatally underestimated.

Tomorrow is too Late
Book Two

Book Description:
I was a natural flier, I could take a punch, and I was smarter than most. Within five years I was a full-fledged pilot. On my last assignment, I was Master Pilot Eri Everfar, commanding pilot of a class B Federal war ship, the Seeker, and that’s where I met him, Drakier Lu…

Filion and his new friends have escaped Bok and are stuck in an asteroid field that isn’t supposed to exist. They’ve almost run out of fuel, their water supply is seriously depleted, all of their food has been destroyed, and the girl they’d just risked everything to save, Ryo, is dead.

Captain Eri’s former lover, Drakier Lu, has been promoted to Master Commander of the entire Federal Fleet, and his assignment is to find and capture the Dark Horse. Captain Eri has been identified as a Tiori, and she and her associates have just become the Federation’s most wanted. Things aren’t what they seem though, and the line between good and evil blurs as the players’ true motivations come to light.

Filion and the crew return, traveling the galaxy and dodging the Federation and the Tioris, all the while searching for a rogue planet that may or may not be harboring the one person who can save them all…

The Degrees of Destiny
Book Three

Book Description:
When I was on Lamu, I inhaled an Afortiori's vileness. That blackness will be what allows me to win. I will use their own evil against them. Because of this I am tainted. I am but a degree different from what I fight, but in that degree, hangs the balance between universal slavery and Free Will.

Having fled from Lamu only moments before its destruction, Filion and his friends find themselves hiding in the shadows as the Federation and the Afortiori mobilize against their worst enemy, The Etulosba and its crew. The Etulosba, Ryo, plans for her final battle. She was engineered to fight for Free Will, but to win that war, she will have to become what no Chozen was meant to be - an Afortiori. Caught in Ryo's wake, Captain Eri is torn between leading her crew and confronting Drakier Lu, her former lover and torturer. Will she be able to overcome what he did to her, or will she fail, thereby becoming what he made her and letting down Ryo, her crew, and ultimately, the universe? Filion and the crew return in the final installment of The Ryo Myths. Join them as they begin a journey that not all of them will survive.

Author Interview

1. What inspired you to want to become a writer?
I’m not sure I was so much inspired, as it was just something I can’t ever remember not wanting. I remember as a little kid, writing stories and wondering what it would be like to publish books. As a kid, I didn’t have any author idols, nor did I know any authors, but that drive was just inside of me.

2. Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
I think the most rewarding thing to come from me getting published was the confidence boost. Looking back to my pre-published life, I can still feel the nervousness and anxiety that buzzed around my writing. Now, I find myself much more focused and much less concerned with the negative feed back I get. I still get rejection letters, I still get bad reviews, and I still get people telling me all the things they didn’t like in my stories, but I am much more able to just accept those negatives and move just on, and that is so very freeing.

3. If you could have a signed copy of any novel what would it be and why?
Probably Flannery O’Connor’s The Complete Stories. Flannery O’Connor died young, but she left behind an amazing collection of work that is both incredibly powerful and undervalued. I think it’d be pretty neat to have a signed copy by her.

4. If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
I know it sounds hokey, but flying would be really sweet.

5. Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read The Ryo Myths.
The Ryo Myths will suck you in and spirit you away from whatever BS that’s monopolizing your real life.

6. Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
I’m currently editing a stand alone book that involves time travel and food. It’s got a romantic storyline and plenty of action. Check out my blog for more updates!

7. Do you write as you go or do you have the book planned before you start the first draft?
I tend to have an idea and a blank page. I just sit down and start. My process is pretty fluid, and often, not knowing where I’m going results in some of my favorite parts of the books. I actually didn’t know how I was going to end The Ryo Myths trilogy until I sat down to write the final book. I just believed I would figure it out, and I did. I’m pretty proud of the way I tied it all together.

8. What movie and/or book are you looking forward to this year?
I know I missed it in the theaters, but I’m looking forward to seeing the new Mad Max.

9. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Hawaii. I lived there for a while and it was great. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

10. Can you see yourself in any of your characters?
I would like to possess Captain Eri’s mental strength. When I wrote her, I realized I was writing her for everyone who’d ever been put in a situation they didn’t know how to get out of. I ruined her life, and I had her rebuild it, one block at a time, and I hope that if I ever need to, I can do that too.
