Tales Q&A With Bryony Pearce


untitledIn a future world where fossil fuels have run out and democracy has collapsed, an outlawed pirate crew fight for survival on their ship, the Phoenix, kept afloat by whatever they can salvage or scavenge on the debris-filled seas.

Toby has never known anything other than life onboard the Phoenix and he’s desperate for adventure. But when trouble comes hunting the Phoenix down, Toby realizes that what you wish for isn’t always what you want.

He meets beautiful Ayla from the Banshee, a rival pirate ship and sworn enemy of the Phoenix, and his world is thrown into chaos.


untitled1I am delighted to be finishing off the brilliant blog tour for Bryony Pearce’s new YA novel, Phoenix Rising, which was released on the 1st June 2015, published by Stripes Publishing this will be followed by the exciting sequel Phoenix Burning in 2016!

I recently kicked off the blog tour where Bryony told me about her favourite literary pirates – here !

But first who will you pledge your allegiance to?

 Are you #PhoenixCrew or #BansheeCrew?

I swear my allegiance to the #BansheeCrew !  We are feared and fearless!  We are merciless and amoral!  We believe in the ideals of strict hierarchy.  We are mercenary and we will not show weakness!  We will survive at all costs!

We are determined to get to the island before our sworn enemies, the #PhoenixCrew!

 Are you #PhoenixCrew or #BansheeCrew?  Do you think my allegiance has changed since reading the book or have I stuck with the #BansheeCrew?

Today I have an awesome Q&A with Bryony all about Pheonix Rising, pirate names, inspiaration and more!

*Hands skull and cross bone flag over to Bryony*


Hi Bryony!  Welcome to Tales Of Yesterday!

Firstly I would like to let you know that I am recruited to #BansheeCrew – we are feared and fearless, but please don’t let that affect your answers 😉

Can you tell us a little about your new book Phoenix Rising?

untitled

Phoenix Rising is a story of pirates, set in a dystopian future following some pretty massive geopolitical changes to the surface of the planet. It’s a rollicking adventure with a strong environmental message.

Find my review here

What inspired you to write the story of Toby and Ayla?

I enjoy world building and loved creating their world, and I felt that theirs’ was an important story to tell, a lot of fun and with a serious lesson at its core, about trust and relationships.

What made you set the book in a futuristic  world where fossil fuels have run out and democracy has collapsed?

Toby as a character fit best into a future world and the world I created was, to me, the logical next step to a culture as consumerist and wasteful as our own, a culture where the resources have been used up and which has been turned into a giant junk yard.

Do you see yourself in any of the characters in Phoenix Rising or have you used any of your own experiences in the story?

I imagine that all writers put parts of themselves into their characters, sometimes it’s the parts we don’t admit to ourselves, sometimes it’s the part of ourselves that would like to be an adventurous pirate, but cannot. Sometimes it is simply the parts of other people (or ourselves) that we admire, or dislike the most (depending on whether we’re writing a good guy or a bad guy). I see bits of myself in all of my characters. I just won’t tell you which bits!

What would your pirate name be?

According to this great pirate name generator, my name would be ‘Polly “Soft Heart” Peacock’. I’m not convinced frankly, I reckon I’d be way more bad ass!

http://pirate.namegeneratorfun.com/

Oh how fun!  My name is……

Mabel “Tall Story” Glynn!

“The Curse of Skull Sands!”
This pirate be sending off the navy quaking in their boots!

Arrrrrrrrrr!

One thing I loved about the book was all the piratey action and ways of living. Did you have to put much research into this or did this come naturally?

A little bit of both, I did a lot of research, I learned a lot about fighting, engineering, the environment, renewable energy sources and so on, plus I can play a mean game of Perudo. But I think a lot of what is in the book comes from my imagination and years of watching old films and reading pirate adventure stories.

You can find Bryony’s favourite literary pirates here

The big question is are you #BansheeCrew or # Phoenixcrew?

Although I love the characters on the Banshee, who are, let’s face it, way more kick ass than those on the Phoenix, the Phoenix would be a much nicer crew to live with. So I’m going to have to say #PhoenixCrew

I can’t believe you didn;t want to join me on the #BansheeCrew!!!    ATTACK!!

If you could cast your characters in a big Hollywood film adaptation who would you choose?

That’s a really hard one, especially as most of the actors I know are a bit old for the parts. Rooney Mara would be a fabulous Ayla, Josh Hutcherson would be a really great Toby because he has that blend of naïveté and heroic bravery that typifies him and Kento Yamazaki would play Hiko really well.

Oh8e5ANI think these choices are perfect!!

Can you give us 5 random facts we don’t know about Bryony Pearce?

I am a vegetarian

I am scared of the dark

When I’m stressed I love to read Terry Pratchett books (or Urban Fantasy)

I had a total hip replacement in 2007 and still dream about running

I have a cat and two degus, but I’d really like a dog

Could you tell us a little about your other books?

indexAngel’s Fury is a supernatural thriller about a girl who realises that she has lived before and that all of her lives are being manipulated by a fallen angel who is trying to destroy mankind.

indexThe Weight of Souls is another supernatural thriller, about a London teenager who sees dead people. If a ghost touches her she has to avenge its death and when the boy who has been tormenting her for years is murdered, she has to find his killers.

I have another book coming out in November called Runners of Mars (although the title may change). Set on a terra-formed Mars it is about a teenaged girl who wants to become a ‘Runner’ against all her people’s laws.

Oh wow!  This sounds awesome! 

Growing up who inspired you into writing? Are there any Authors or books that inspired you?

I was a huge Anne Macaffrey fan and I wanted to write character driven stories that would touch people as strongly as her work touched me.

indexWhat do you think makes a good story?

There are lots of different ingredients. I don’t like things to be too black and white, I love a good anti-hero – they always draw me in. I like a story to make me think, to deal with issues without being too obvious about it. For me a good story needs to grip me by the throat and not let go until the final word.

Are there any recent works or authors that you admire or books you wish you had written?

Tom Pollack City’s Son.

index

Are there any authors you would like to collaborate with? Who?

I’m pretty easy going (but don’t tell that to my kids), I’d be happy to collaborate with anyone who doesn’t mind working with someone as neurotic as I am!

When starting a new book or idea what does your writing process look like?

It doesn’t look like anything at first – seriously, I just let things percolate for as long as I can, I don’t even make many notes. Then, once the story has fallen into place I write a synopsis, then I do a chapter by chapter outline. I start writing, essentially filling it in and research the heck out of everything as I’m going along.

Do you have any strange writing habits?

I don’t think so, but then all of us writers are a bit strange and I don’t have anything to compare myself too (it’s not like working in an office). Is it strange to work in your slippers and track suit bottoms with innumerable cups of cold tea by one hand?

Recently I asked some lovely UKYA authors their thoughts about does music influence their books or their characters. Did music have any influence in Phoenix Rising?

I don’t listen to music while I write, I prefer silence. That way I can get inside the characters, see what they see, hear what they hear. I’m very immersive.

Can you tell us a little about the sequel to Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Burning and when is it due out?

Phoenix Burning is due out in March and I’m just editing it now. It’s more of a heist novel, as the main characters need to steal some key components to get their solar panels working and it explores a bit more of Toby’s world and the people who live in it. There are crosses and double crosses, lots more action and the return of a character they thought long vanished from their lives.

Thank you so much for appearing on Tales today Bryony!  I can’t wait for the sequel to Pheonix Rising next year!

My favourite literary pirates by Bryony Pearce

I’ve always loved pirate stories. My favourite kind of hero is an anti-hero and pirates in literature embody my idea of an anti-hero – a bad person who turns around and does the right thing.

 There are a great many pirates in literature, who are soon to be joined by Captain Wright (Nell), Captain Ford (Barnaby), Ayla, Toby, Peel, Crocker, Marcus and the rest.

 Here are some of my very favourite.

 The Dread Pirate Roberts / Westley from The Princess Bride by William Golding

untitled

th

What I am about to tell you I have never said before and you must guard it closely.” I of course said I would. ‘I am not the Dread Pirate Roberts,’ he said. ‘my name is Ryan. I inherited this ship from the previous Dread Pirate Roberts just as you will inherit it from me … The original Dread Pirate Roberts has been retired fifteen years and has been living like a king in Patagonia.

Captain Alberic / Captain Shakespeare from Stardust by Neil Gaiman

untitled

In the novel the original captain of the Sky ship Perdita is Captain Johannes Alberic

It wasn’t entirely fortune that we found you … It’d also be true to say that I was keeping half an eye out for you.

The Captain, however that I (and probably most viewers) really love is Captain Shakespeare – a version of Alberic rewritten into a flamboyant cross-dresser for the film and played by De Niro

9e7222b8ea90f461a093c14cbf1fad89

 Captain James Hook from Peter Pan by JM Barrie

untitled

            “Proud and insolent youth,” said Hook. “Prepare to meet thy doom.”

…“Dark and sinister man,” Peter answered. “Have at thee.”

thMAE6TIJU

 The Fiddling pirate from The Pirate Cruncher

Pirate Cruncher

 There are rubies and diamonds the size of balloons

Silver and guineas and golden doubloons

But grab it all quick or he’ll have your entrails

Now, Fiddle de dee, let’s spread those sails

The Fiddling Pirate who appears to the sound of the fiddle floating on the wind, is possibly the creepiest character in children’s literature today. In this children’s picture book, much beloved by my son, the fiddler leads Captain Purplebeard and his crew to find an island of gold, filled with treasure. On the way pirates mysteriously disappear, and the pirates begin to worry, but are seduced into carrying on by the idea of the treasure. But the island is perched on a monster’s head and when the pirates land he eats them all. It is only at the end that you realise the old fiddler is really a puppet – the monster’s puppet and only when you look back over the pictures do you see the strings holding him up on each page, and the shadow of the monster who was with them the whole time.

 Captain T-Rex from Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs

122583-ml-71043

Another favourite of my son and in here because no other pirate has a better battle cry.

            Yo ho ho, yo ho ho, pirate dinosaurs go, go, go

 Captain T-rex eats children with ketchup and his crew sings the best shanties:

We’ve stolen all the treasure

We’ll use it at our leisure

And won’t it be a pleasure

For us all to live like kings.

And don’t think we’ve forgotten

That this pirate’s rather rotten

So let’s barbecue his bottom

With some spicy chicken wings.

 I know that I am missing out some obvious favourites – Long John Silver, Captain Nemo and Captain Jack Sparrow all deserve a mention (Sparrow now has his own series of books by Rob Kidd). It seems crazy that a pirate T-rex beats Sparrow, Silver and Nemo, but my son made me read the stories of the pirate dinosaurs over and over and so they have a special place in my heart.

 I hope you enjoy my own pirates.

Tales Q&A with Gareth P. Jones


untitleduntitled2

 

 

 

 

 

 

Myself and my son have fallen in love with this new series by Gareth P. Jones, The Steampunk Pirates!  We have laughed with them, been on adventures on the high seas with them and walked the plank with them….okay that was just me being cruel to my son Corey when we were playing pirates *splash*

Basically they are swashbuckling fun!

The first in the series, The Leaky Battery Sets Sail came out in February 2015 and introduces us to the brilliant Steampunk Pirates (you can find my review and extract here) and the second in the series, Attack Of The Giant Sea Spiders came out in May 2015 (my review will follow shortly).

The series is published by the brilliant Stripes Publishing and I was over the moon to be asked to put some questions to Gareth!

Interesting Fact Alert!  The brilliant illustrations in these books were created by a super-secret super-illustration team at Stripes!  They are credited as ‘FAD’ in the books!  Ohhhhh a mystery!

For this Q&A Pirate Chelley enlisted the help of crew member Corey to grill Gareth…..and if we are not satisfied with his answers then…..*splash* dinner time for the sharks….or should I say some Giant Sea Spiders!

*Evil Laugh*


Michelle:  Hi Gareth!  Welcome to Tales Of Yesterday!  This ship is officially setting sail now!  We hope you enjoy your journey! 

Corey:  These questions will decide if you will walk the plank and become that hungry shark down there’s dinner!  He looks rather hungry!

Michelle:  Now step up on the plank….that’s it…watch you don’t fall and ruin our fun……..

Corey:  Okay lets begin….

Michelle:  Can you tell us a little about your new books The Adventures of the Steampunk Pirates series?

 The Adventures of the Steampunk Pirates is a series of adventure books that are hopefully funny, silly, exciting and fun.

untitled

Wanted: Dead or Alive! (Or smashed into little bits and delivered in boxes.) Causing chaos wherever they sail, the robotic Steampunk Pirates are roaming the high seas, hunting for gold! But the evil Iron Duke has other ideas…He’s determined to capture the pirates in return for a handsome reward from the King. Can the mechanical marauders stay one wave ahead of their enemy?

untitled2

Wanted: Dead or Alive! (Or smashed into little bits and delivered in boxes.) The Steampunk Pirates jump at the chance to earn a handsome reward in return for doing some snooping. But when they find themselves sandwiched between the Dread Captain Inky beard and a spider on the attack, it’s time to beat a retreat. Can they escape without a scrape or have the robotic rebels ticked their last?

 Corey:  What inspired you to write the story of the Steampunk Pirates?

 I was playing pirates with my son and another boy, when the boy (whose name I forget) turned into a robot. Robot pirates, I thought. That’s an idea.

Michelle:  We are glad to hear that you have played pirates before…..lets hope you practised WALKING THE PLANK!

 Corey:  What materials are the Steampunk Pirates made of eg metal, gold etc?

 That’s a good question. They were constructed out or iron, (with a few bits of copper along the way) but as the series goes on they are gradually replacing their rusting parts with other materials they find. Their favourite is gold.

 Corey:  Which character are you most like?  Captain Clockhart, Quarter Master Lexi, Gadge or First Mate Mainspring?

 That’s an even better question. Well, like Lexi, I have a love of words. Like Mainspring, I am always plotting something (normally a book). Like Gadge, I love singing songs. And like Captain Clockheart, I am a little bit mad and get a tad over-excited sometimes!

Michelle:  Woah!  *Gareth wobbles after getting a tad over-excited* – Watch it there we still have lots more questions before you go for your swim….

 Michelle:  I have been trying to teach Corey to speak Pirate…..can you help?  Any tips?

 There be all kinds of pirates with all kinds of voices. The important thing is for Captain Corey to find his own unique pirate voice. One tip is that a pirate Argh should have a ‘gh’ in it.

Michelle & Corey:  *Practises ARGHS…..ARGH…..ARGH….ARGH*

 Michelle:  The Steampunk Pirates often find themselves in some difficult tricky situations!  When was the last time you found yourself in a situation that was hard to get out of and what did you do?

 I live in south London so most of my tricky situations involve buses suddenly terminating before I’m home. Usually I deal with this by a) getting on another bus b) going for a coffee or glass of ale (depending on the time of day).

Michelle:  Don’t worry Gareth…..there is only water where your going…..come along step a little closer to the edge now….

 Corey:  In this new adventure the Steampunk pirates have to face the giant sea spiders can you tell us more about these?

 I can’t say much or the French commander Didier Le Bone has threatened to chop off my legs and serve me with a plate of snails.

Michelle:  *Gulps*

 Michelle:  If you could cast your characters from The Steampunk Pirates in a big Hollywood film adaptation or animation which actors would you choose?

 Captain Clockheart – Ray Winstone

ray-winstone-owes-to-acting-career-19396

Quartermaster Lexi – Benedict Cumberbatch

benedict-cumberbatch

Mister Gadge – Craig Ferguson

thGKKVZ8PD

Mr Mainspring – Mark Heap

th

Michelle:  I’m feeling a bit guilty now as those were excellent choices…

Corey:  MAKE HIM WALK THE PLANK *waves to sharky down below*

Michelle:  *Looks stunned*

 Corey:  Do you like to make your readers laugh?

 More than anything, yes.

 Corey:  We love Twitter!  What made you call the Steampunk Pirates parrot Twitter? 

 It was a joke for myself really. An annoying parrot that repeats obvious things and bugs everyone. What else could I call him? If he showed everyone pictures of children or told everyone about his latest marathon efforts then he’d have been Facebook.

 Michelle:  We would love to know a little bit more about you!  Can you give us 5 random facts we don’t know about Gareth P Jones?

  • I once appeared on TV as a singing potato

Michelle:  (rushes to type into google…..but realises we are in the middle of the sea!)

  • I once appeared on TV dressed as a monkey serving tea to Ricky Gervais

Michelle:  *SHOUTS* “Get back to land we need the internet quickly!”*

  • Both my parents are called Leslie (although mum is Lesley)
  • My middle name is Phillips
  • My son’s middle name is Indiana

Corey: If you could be any pirate that had ever lived who would you be? My Mom says she wishes she could meet Johnny Depp and marry him!

Michelle:  Errrrrmmmmm *apologies to husband, but its Johnny Depp!*

I think I’d be one who survived and lived long enough to retire and enjoy his ill-gotten gains, so bearing that in mind, Sir Henry Morgan who did all that.

henry-morgan

Corey: We read in the back of the book that you spend a lot of time turning yourself into a Steampunk pirate? Is this true? Any pictures?

Yep.

Steampunk Costume

Corey: Can you tell us a little about some of your other books?

I’ve written lots of different books. There is a series about Ninja Meerkats.

untitled

There is a book about a pair of twins trying to kill each other (The Thornthwaite Inheritance).

untitled

Find out which character from The Thornthwaite Betrayal you are here

There is a book about ghosts (Constable & Toop).

untitled

You can read about them on my website. www.garethwrites.co.uk

Michelle:  Oh wow…..he has written a lot of books you know Corey…I think we better get him down from the plank now!

Corey:  “Here fishy fishy…dinner will be served soon”….*pushes Gareth further down the plank*

Michelle: Growing up who inspired you into writing?  Are there any Authors or books that inspired you?        

I don’t know about other specific authors inspiring me, but I certainly had lots of encouragement from my parents and teachers. Everything I read and watch inspired my love of stories.

 Michelle:  Are there any recent works or authors that you admire or books you wish you had written or that you would like to collaborate with in the future?

 I don’t think it’s possible to wish you’d written a book as you would have written it differently but there are certainly some books that I wish I’d had the same success as.

 Corey:  What do you think makes a good story?

A good story… and interesting characters… and colourful dialogue

 Michelle:  Over on Tales Of Yesterday I have recently been asking YA authors if music has any influence to their writing and/or characters.  Is there a particular song that influenced The Steampunk Pirates and/or it’s characters and if so how or why?  Or maybe like a theme song for the characters?

 Yes, there is a theme tune. You can find it here!

These days I compose theme songs for my books as I’m writing. When I listen to other music while writing pirates, it’s stuff like the music for Pirates of the Caribbean. There’s a terrific song by Rodrigo y Gabriela called The Pirate That Should Not be.

Michelle:  *Daydreams about Johnny Depp*

 Michelle:  What’s next?  Any exciting plans that you are able to reveal?  Any more contributions to The Steampunk Pirate Series?

 I’m currently working on the fourth in the series. In fact today is the deadline day so I’d better get back to work…..

Michelle:  Okay Okay…..I suppose we can let you off this time as we really want the next book in the series asap!

Corey: *Sighs*

Michelle:  *turns to walk away* …I mean we were not really going to make you walk the plank and feed you to the sharks were we Corey?

TWAAAANNNNGGGGGG!

Michelle:  Gareth?!

*Splash!*

Michelle & Corey:   UH! OH!  HOW ARE WE GOING TO EXPLAIN THIS TO STRIPES PUBLISHING!

*Looks over side of ship and gulps*


A huge thank you from myself and Corey to Gareth for featuring today and for answering all or questions….and making us laugh….a lot!

Also a huge thank you to Jessie at Stripes Publishing for organising and letting us ask Gareth anything we wanted to!
