.Blog Tour: #Giveaway #Interview Rise by @AnnaCareyBooks @harperteen @wovenmyst

Rise (Eve, #3)
Rise(Eve #3)         

Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: April 2nd 2013 by HarperCollins

How far will you go when you have nothing left to lose?

When she lost her soul mate, Caleb, Eve felt like her world had ended. Trapped in the palace, forced to play the part of the happy, patriotic princess of The New America—and the blushing bride of her father's top adviser—Eve's whole life is a lie. The only thing that keeps her going is Caleb's memory, and the revolution he started.

Now, Eve is taking over where Caleb left off. With the help of Moss, an undercover subversive in the King's court, she plots to take down The New America, beginning with the capital, the City of Sand. Will Eve be able to bring about a new, free world when she's called upon to perform the ultimate act of rebellion—killing her father?

In Rise, Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight as Anna Carey's epic tale of romance and sacrifice in the chilling dystopia of The New America comes to a stunning conclusion.

Hello Anna, Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by my blog, today!  

What can we expect to see in the final installment of The Eve Trilogy?
It’s hard to say anything without giving something away, but the third book in the series is the most panic inducing. Eve makes another life-altering discovery and feels the repercussions of that throughout the story. She loses several people she’s close to and is more alone than she’s ever been.  
 Eve’s a very strong heroine, where did your inspiration come from when writing about her?

I wanted to write a character who was incredibly sheltered, had no survival skills, and believed everything she’d been taught. I wanted to challenge her beliefs and push her to her limits. When Eve goes beyond the compound walls she’s convinced she’ll die. Watching her change and grow was the most enjoyable part of the writing process. She becomes stronger than she (or I) ever thought possible. 
When writing about the New America, where did you draw your inspiration from? 
Everywhere. There are a lot of isolated hikes in Southern California (where I currently live) and I’ve imagined what it would be like to be attacked by a bear. That scene came straight from my own (semi-irrational) fears. Other scenes were born out of wondering what the world would look like without us in it. I love the idea that ugly strip malls might eventually be swallowed by nature, covered over with ivy and moss. 
What projects are you currently working on? 
I’m working on a new two-book YA series called Blackbird. It’s a bit of a mystery. More details soon…  
If the Eve trilogy were to be made into a movie, what actors would play your characters? 

I’m currently watching Vampire Diaries and I’m obsessed with everyone on that show. When I answered my first fantasy casting questions I’d seen pictures of Paul Wesley, and thought he was a good dark brooding type, possibly someone who would play Leif. After watching the show, he is definitely a Caleb. Definitely.
I’ve always thought Ashley Greene from Twilight would be a great Arden, and Rooney Mara (or someone like her) would be a great Eve.
