Author Interview & Int Giveaway with Chloe Miles (The Faded Trilogy) @chloemiles_

The Faded Trilogy

You only live once ... unless you're Hunter Emmerton. 
A half-spirit girl. An irresistibly charming ghost. The beginning of a timeless first love. A town terrorized by evil ... and dark forces who will stop at nothing to tear them apart. But how can they be together if they can’t even feel each other’s touch? 
From the sweet love story of Faded to the heart-stopping action of See No Evil and the inspiring Ever After, find out why readers are buzzing about The Faded Trilogy ... and falling head over heels for Hunter Emmerton.
RUTH: How did you come up with the idea for The Faded Trilogy?
CHLOE:I wanted to write a paranormal romance that was a little different to everything else that’s already been written. I loved the idea of earthbound spirits protecting the town from evil. And, being a hopeless romantic, I loved the idea of eternal undying love, especially between two characters who are so young but whose love is so rare and beyond their years.
It happened to be storming when I was coming up with the idea for the series, so that’s the inspiration behind the power over the weather that the characters possess and the unpredictable storms terrorizing the town.

RUTH: Are any of the characters inspired in real people? 
CHLOE: Savannah is a lot like my own former teenage self, so I think her voice was naturally the one that came through when I started writing her story. Savannah is a little shy and reserved and more at home with her nose buried in her textbooks than confronting a room full of her peers ... let alone coming face to face with The Forces and having to protect her entire town! (Thankfully, I never had to contend with the latter.)
She’s relatable in the sense that she has that internal self-doubt that I think all teenage girls have at some point in their lives. We slowly see her emerge further and further from her shell as the series progresses, guided in the most part by Hunter’s unconditional love and undoubting belief in her, and eventually, her belief in herself.

RUTH: How long took you to write the books?
CHLOE:Each novel took about six months to write and edit. 

RUTH: Did you write them simultaneously?
CHLOE: I wrote each one straight after the other. As soon as I had finished one it was straight onto the next one and then the next one. I worked early morning until late at night six days a week. It was a lot of work, but I’m incredibly proud of the end result.

RUTH: You described yourself as a hopeless romantic, which are your favorite authors in the 
romance genre?
CHLOE: As surprising as it might sound, I’m not actually much of a romance reader.  I don’t really have the time to read all that much these days because I’m so busy with writing and promoting. 
But if I were to say a writer as in songwriter and not as in author (I seem to have a lot more time to listen to music than I do to read!) I would have to say that I absolutely adore Taylor Swift. That girl knows how to get to my heart every time.

RUTH: Your favorite book in the world?
CHLOE: The Harry Potter series. I’ve always been a huge Harry Potter fan.

RUTH: Why your book is different from the ones out there?
CHLOE: I believe there is a powerful and inspirational message behind The Faded Trilogy, and I hope that the readers will walk away from this series with a little more hope and love in their hearts.
Obviously, with Hunter being a spirit and Savannah being a human, their relationship is certainly not without its difficulties and obstacles, but the message throughout the series is that true love can conquer all, even the impossible. 
Love is an emotional feeling. The idea of Savannah and Hunter’s love for each other is that the strongest feelings we feel aren’t always physically felt but felt wholly and powerfully within your heart.

RUTH: Are you working in something new?
CHLOE: I’m not working on any other writing projects at the moment. Promoting The Faded Trilogy is occupying all of my time, and I want to dedicate my heart and soul to ensuring its success before I move on to any other projects. You never know what may happen in the future in regards to other writing projects, but right now my heart belongs to Savannah and Hunter.

Chloe Miles is a twenty-something author, dreamer, shameless chocoholic, and hopeless romantic.
When she's not writing or daydreaming, she loves escaping reality with her favorite playlists, eating too much chocolate, and curling up on her couch in her PJs with a good TV show and a cup of tea.
The Faded Trilogy is her first series.

“Savannah wanted to kiss him, but she had never even kissed a human guy before, let alone a ghost. How was she supposed to kiss him if he wasn’t really there?”
Savannah has never been in love before, but she’s in love with Hunter Emmerton. He’s cute, funny, charming ... and a ghost. How can you date someone if nobody else can see them?
When seventeen-year-old Savannah Fraser and her three friends are killed in a car accident, they are given a second chance at life by a group of century-old earthbound spirits who need their help.
Savannah learns she is a Chosen One, which means she can switch between human and spirit form, heal people, and control the weather—and she is also now invincible.
The Chosen Ones are the only ones who can defeat The Forces—a trio of evil half-spirits who are slowly destroying the perfect little town of Fort Everwick with violent storms and not-so-natural disasters—and stop them from harming everyone they care about.
The Forces are set on destroying everything Savannah knows and loves, but they also have a more sinister plan—they want a new member to join them. They won’t give up until they get the one they want—and they have Savannah firmly in their sights.
But what Savannah didn’t count on was falling in love with Hunter. She’s never loved anyone the way she loves Hunter, and she knows he loves her, too. But how can they be together forever if he no longer exists and she’s the only one who can see him?
Will Savannah have enough belief in herself to defeat The Forces, or will they be able to lure her to the dark side and turn her against her loved ones—and tear her and Hunter apart?
