The Appearances release blog tour;



The O'Raven Chronicles is pleased to present this tour stop for the Appearances                                                   release blog tour, for Author T.M. Smith.





                                           WHEN OPPOSITES UNITE!




Appearances, can be deceiving.

Raven and Tanis are trying very hard to merge their vastly different lifestyles, but Tanis issues with his own past could prove to be more than their fragile relationship can handle. Is their love for each other strong enough to weather the oncoming storm?

Aiya and Sawyer have fought hard to be together in a world where Opposite relationships are generally forbidden. Yet, they are still forced to keep their relationship a secret while they are outside the walls of House Gaeland.

Everyone assumes that the only threat lies outside their walls, the group of rebels led by Cillian. But something is happening within House Gaeland, something that hasn’t happened since GWI. And with all the attention focused on that, their guard is down. An evil that was under their nose all along strikes, and someone will make the ultimate sacrifice to save another.
ies should be read in order.

** Warning, Opposites is an Adult Dystopian majorly M/M series that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, straight and lesbian couples. **



A Character Interview of a different sort! 


So I am pleased to be able to host and present a man I happen to Love very much...my comrade in arms, one of my other selves, my friend and partner in crime / alter ego..... Raven of Opposites!!! Welcome Raven it is so nice to have you here today. 

Oh thank you my friend. I am so happy to be here. 

I understand that in a strange turn of events you as a character will be the one conducting the interview...who is it that you are going to interview? 

I am interviewing the author of opposites herself...T.M. Smith! How fun is that? It isn't every day that a character such as myself out of the literary universe gets to turn the tables and ask questions from the the author of their world. I am excited! 

Wow..well that sounds most interesting and without any more ado's or adieus...I am turning the floor over to you...I think she just arrived!

Hi everyone, Raven here and I am so pleased to be able to have this time with all of you and with our very special guest Author T.M. Smith!!! 
Hello T.M., it is a pleasure to have you here with us to today; before we get to the actual questions I have to ask, is it weird to have one of your characters interviewing you for a change? Lol

T.M. Smith speaks: A little, yes, but I’m looking forward to it. Let’s see what you’ve got for me Raven. Hi Everyone...by the way, Where’s Tanis?


Tanis is a little busy trying to get over some personal issues right now, but we will get together later and I will give him....some personal therapy...yes let's go with that, some personal therapy! lol 

Lol Don't do anything I wouldn't write. Wait...there isn't much I wouldn't write! lol 

TEE HEE I'll try to keep that in mind! Alright so let’s get to it…
Question 1;
We all know there is an overall message or theme to the Opposites series which is the promotion of equality for all people despite their sexual orientation; by asking people to walk for a while in someone else’s shoes. Are there any secondary messages or themes that you want to get across to your readers through your stories?

~ Yes! Don’t judge that which you don’t understand.



Question 2;
Many of your readers will know that I am especially dear to your friend Lucien (or Loush) Our Host here today…are there any characters that you hold especially close to your heart more than the other because they are more like you than all the rest?

~ If I had to say which character was most like me, it would have to be Amaya. Tough as nails, no holds barred, bitch on wheels! God I love her!!



Questions 3;
Is there a place in your post GWI world that you especially loved creating, or that you love to explore more than any other; if so what is that place and why do you love it so much?

~ The garden. It’s a place of serenity for anyone that enters into it, especially young Aiyan. I wanted to have a place that was full of nature and beauty, completely calm when there is so much insanity going on in the outside world.

Questions 4;
When you were writing the world of opposites was there anything in this world that you found especially difficult to write (besides me due to the over-interference from Lucien lol)?


~ The sex scene between Autumn and Maeve. Yes, I am a woman and as a woman I should know better than anyone what I like, sexually speaking. But it was way out of my element to write about two women loving each other. I read a couple of books, watched some of the L word, and of course I love Mel and Lindsey from QAF. But it took me a very long time to get that scene down, to get it right.

Questions 5;
So now for the obligatory interview question; what can you tell us (without giving too much away), about what is coming in the future of the world of opposites?


Well, in Appearances everyone’s life will change. A lot of secrets are revealed toward the end of the book, secrets I will explore more fully in Maddness which is the title of book 3. It’s hard to say too much without giving away things that won’t unfold for a while yet. I will say that yes, there are a couple questions you will be yelling at me when you finish Appearances, both of these carrots I leave dangling will come to fruition in book 3. You will also learn more about Gabry, Raven’s mother, the Seer in book 3. And all the houses will finally be introduced into the story.

Questions 6;
If you were to go into the world of opposites yourself as a straight woman, what man straight or gai would you would want to turn or attain as a lover?


~ He hasn’t been introduced yet, you’ll meet him in book 3. Thyaigo from House Brasilia.

Well that was very illuminating to say the least lol, thanks for taking this time to share your thoughts with us! As one of your characters I have especially loved getting to ask you questions? How about a final un-official question…could you possibly write me a great love making scene that takes place in Rian’s conservatory when no one is around? I love the aroma of the plethora of flora in there! Lol

So, you want to get busy with Tanis in the green house do you? I’ll see what I can do about that.
HUGS!

Well that was fun! I am turning this blog back over to its rightful owner Loush...Farewell my friend till I see you again. 



Thank you both for coming and sharing this time with us! Take care and Fare Thee Well!!!
