Author Guest Post + Giveaway: Pavarti K. Tyler


Adventures in Inappropriate Content 
by Pavarti K Tyler

My parents divorced when I was quite young and while my father put in the most valiant effort possible, it's difficult to maintain a relationship with a child when you live 4 states away.

My father's answer? Books.

When I was eight I received my first copy of The Hobbit in the mail. Once a week my father would call and we'd talk about what I read and how far I got. We finished the book and the only natural thing to do was continue this way. It gave us common ground, something to talk about and ease the transition from not talking to sharing our lives. It was especially helpful when he'd visit.

Once I read the Hobbit, my father purchased The Fellowship of the Rings for me, but, yeah, it wasn't my cup of tea. To be honest, I only read those because they were his favorite and he has read them (literally) from the beginning of the series to the end every year of my 33 years on this earth. I don't know how he does it. I'd rather claw my eyes out.

So when my Dad came to visit me the next time, he brought me another book. The Tommyknockers by Steven King. I was eight.

This was the beginning of my descent into a love affair with inappropriate content. With my father I read the Clan of the Cave Bear series (who doesn't love Caveman porn with Dad?), lots of Steven King, Dean R. Koontz and whatever he picked up at the bookstore. Sometimes he'd read something and then mail his copy to me; sometimes he'd just buy two.

To keep up with my father I became a voracious reader with a comprehension level well above my peers. I was basically given a one on one literary seminar once a week where-in I was expected to be able to articulate my thoughts on themes, characters, plot and subplots. This served me extremely well as a child because my vocabulary was extensive and my comprehension level made school a breeze.
However, I was reading The Tommyknockers at eight!

Because of this early literary education my understanding of "grade level" and "appropriate content" became deeply perverted. I am overwhelmingly thankful to my father for this. However, it has at times been an issue.
  • In tenth grade I argued adamantly with a teacher about the value of Anais Nin's work. I ended up in the principal's office for reading porn in class.
  • In eleventh grade I got a D on a paper for discussing the religious undertones in the relationship between father and daughter in The Grapes of Wrath.
  • In College I almost failed a class due to a paper titled "It Doesn't Matter Who You Fuck As Long As You're The One Doing The Fucking: Active vs Passive Homosexuality in Greco-Roman Culture". I took that one to the Dean to complain and she made the professor give me an A. *puts thumbs in ears and raspberries prof*
The list goes on. As an author I wrote Consumed By Love in the best way I knew how. It's errotic horror. No Erotica publisher would touch it due to the violent content and no horror publisher wanted it due to the erotic content (SNM Horror Mag did run it during Feb 2011 though, because they are awesome and recognized my true brilliance. Hi Steven! *waves*).

If you read my blog or follow my tumblr you are aware of the fact I live in a world filled with inappropriate content. I love it, I thrive on it. Not because I aim to shock or offend but because I don't feel the need to restrict my writing or my soul by standards others have placed on me.

My first novel, Two Moons of Sera, is a fantasy/romance which I am releasing in serial format. The first part will be published November 1, 2011 with the next coming in January 2012. It reads like a YA novel when you start and will continue to flow with the ease and fun of other popular novels targeted at young adults. However, I didn't want to write the next big teen hit. 2MOS is different in that it is targeted at adults.
I love reading YA books, don't get me wrong. My shelves are full of them. But more often then not I am left wanting. And the reason for that is these authors aren't able to tell the whole story. They stop short of the full human experience. I understand why and while my frustration is real it's due to no lack of skill or talent on the part of the author. I'm just looking for more.

With Two Moons of Sera I applied the storytelling and world building that draws people to Young Adult novels but allowed it to expand beyond the constraints of genre. I have reached into pure fantasy, a touch of sci-fi and as the story moves along come to explore romance.

Being an Indie Author has offered me such a fun opportunity to integrate that inappropriate content YA authors must shy away from. There are no longer rules about what I have to do or who I have to write for. Ahead of us lies a new adventure where authors can write what is true and readers can enjoy the full story.
Forever a trouble maker, I'm looking forward to breaking more rules.
