The hunger is encompassing, so she feeds the beast books. But the hunger never settles... so she writes. E.V. Fairfall has an itch that drives her to the world of story telling. With several published short stories, and soon several books (fingers crossed), she explores the topics of humanity and hardship. 

During the daylight hours, a book is always within reach. She spends her nights reading with her husband, surrounded by towers of tomes and three furry children curled in close. If she isn’t reading, she is browsing bookstores or hiking, but always awaiting her next adventure.

My newest book is Sleeping Tom, a YA Romance about a girl who falls in love with a boy with two personalities—a two-person love triangle. lol.

Then I have Transformed, a YA Paranormal Romance about Mother Earth, who for the first time adopts a human form to teach a hunter compassion...all while trying to understand her growing feelings towards him. Oh the tension!!!

I’m currently working on a contemporary romance and the sequel to Sleeping Tom. Yes, two different books simultaneously.

And then, like every writer, I have books on my desktop that will never see the light of day :P

Thanks for asking about my books, Ashley.(less)

With nightly word count…moreWriters block has plagued me all week, so I might as well try to explain my methods around it while it’s fresh in my mind. With nightly word count goals it can be hard to stay motivated when a scene isn’t flowing. Some promising ways to work around them are:

1. Start a new chapter and leave the chapter or scene you’re working on behind for now.

2. Work backwards. Get your blood pumping by skipping to the last chapter.

3. Write the synopsis. You’ll need it at some point anyway and it can re-solidify your plot and maybe give you a new perspective.

4. Try to identify what is keeping you from writing the scene. Is it dialogue? Transitions? Pick up a favorite book and search for the solutions that others writers use or read a few pages. Sometimes it will help you get back into the flow of writing.

5. Explore your characters. Write down everything about them. Their favorite color. Hobbies, favorite childhood memories. The better you know them, the easier it will be to write them. Plus it is fun!

This week, I was stubborn and I tried to power through a chapter that just wouldn’t go. I knew where I wanted the chapter to begin and end but the characters seemed unyielding and stubborn. Finally... after two nights of a few hundred forced words, I skipped to the next chapter. It was a breath of fresh air.

I hope these methods work for you as well as they do for me. (less)

It seems everyone is a writer these days and why not? We all have something inside of us that wants to tell a story but what comes next? After you get that great idea or maybe even finish the first draft of a novel…then what? Or maybe you’ve been sending out query letters and keep getting rejections (we have all been there). Writing is difficult and becoming a published author in today’s world... Read more of this blog post »

“I'll have enough books when they fill my room like the stars fill the sky.”
E.V. Fairfall

“Be an unstoppable force. Write with an imaginary machete strapped to your thigh. This is not wishy-washy, polite, drinking-tea-with-your-pinkie-sticking-out stuff. It's who you want to be, your most powerful self. Write your books. Finish them, then make them better. Find the way. No one will make this dream come true for you but you.”
Laini Taylor

“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”

“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”

Rita Thanks for the invite.


Maria Kaye Hi E.V! Thanks for the friend request :)


Stephanie Thanks for the add! I love Dystopian novels and pretty much anything YA paranormal. I love that unrealistic element, but how the author can make you feel like it's real.


Neveen Badr (Seraphina Reads) Thanks for the add E.V..
I have "The Night Circus" on this year's reading list but have not bought "The Lies of Locke Lamora" yet.
I wish if I can have more books :) .

Thanks for adding me.

Booknut Thanks so much for the friend request!
