Thank you everyone for stopping by my blog. This is my fourth day on this tour. I want to start my post as always by thanking Emmy Gatrell for inviting me on this tour. Don’t forget to stop by her blog as you make your rounds.
Today, I want to introduce you to Evelyn Elaine Hays, Eve for short, from my modern-day, post-apocalyptic novel set in the Deep South, around Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi. Before the sickness that killed every man, woman, and child on the planet, Eve was your typical college student. She lived near campus with her best friend, was madly in love her boyfriend, and only had a tentative idea of what she really wanted to do with her life. After the sickness, Eve became a mother, a doctor, a lover, a wife, a killer, a survivalist, and a leader. She didn’t fall into these roles easily, but she knew if she didn’t make the hard decisions, her world would cease to exist.
Eve’s main conflict and her personal goal throughout the novel are the same: survival. She has to survive a sickness that wipes out over 99% of the world’s population on top of scavenging for food and supplies. She has to survive herself. Fighting the urge to give up, to take her own life, isn’t easy in a world where everyone else is dead. She has to fight against those who have gone insane and who are bent on tearing down what is left of the old world or simply want to satisfy their primal needs before they parish. She has to survive miscarriages, as the sickness doesn’t wait until a person is in the world before it kills them. In order to survive all of this and become the leader her new world needs her to be, she has to learn to become strong, self-sufficient, brave.
