Interview & #Giveaway: Aberrant by Ruth Silver

Please welcome Ruth Silver the author of Aberrant (Book 1 in the Abberant Series) to my blog.

What was the spark or initial idea that started Aberrant?

I wanted to write a Dystopian novel. It’s not hard to imagine why, I love reading Dystopian YA fiction. The initial idea is from a series of factors and thoughts that I had – what our world would be like if everyone was given equal status. We know in our current society there are people that are homeless, without jobs or food. Some of these people have touched our lives; they are our friends and neighbors. It wasn’t such a far leap to create a Dystopian world that gives it’s people everything but there had to be a higher cost in doing that, making it a far cry from Utopian.

What was your favorite part of writing Aberrant?

Being able to create a world and to research different topics and ideas. My absolute favorite part was writing the ending because the story meshed together and still leaves room for two additional books in the series.

An irritation I've come to realize is a part of the process. Then once those are out, I'll then go through and see who I contacted but never got back to me. Send a second reminder to all of those folks. Then I go to various sources to see if there are new schools which weren't in previous editions.

This is where you can help. If you know of a specialty school or college which you think should be included in the book, please have them drop me a line. I've also decided that any college which has a strong riding program can ask to be included in th…
