I was interviewed for Examiner.com about my latest release, upcoming projects and my writing process. You can check out a preview below as well as find a link to the full interview.
Buffy: Romanceauthors count among the most popular book writers, partly because the best romantic novels mix scorching romance with very human problems. While my own writing has romantic elements, I wouldn’t call myself a romance writer. But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate those writers who do capture the genre and give me a good, engrossing story to boot.
One of my favorites is L. Rosario, a vampire fiction writer with a touch of historical romance thrown in. I was lucky enough to get caught up with her a couple of weeks ago to talk about writing books and her process. Those of you who are interested in exploring romance writing as a career will find her comments about the writing process extremely insightful.
(Buffy) Tell my readers a bit about you? How long have you been a writer?
(L) I was first published in 2006 and have eight books to my credit, seven currently available, one recently out of print. But I imagine, like most authors, I’ve been writing much longer than I’ve been published.
Whew! It’s so hard to believe that a week ago Descent Into Darkness was released! For those of you who have already read it, thank you. For anyone who hasn’t and would like to, you can find purchase links on my website.
If you have time and inclination, please think about leaving a review. Not for my benefit, though I do enjoy knowing your thoughts, but mostly for those contemplating whether or not they would enjoy Descent Into Darkness. Goodreads and Amazon are good places to leave a review. Here are the links:
Aside from releasing Descent, I’ve been hard at work on the follow-up story, Chloe’s Surrender. In it, we catch up with Victor nearly 100 yrs after Descent Into Darkness. Needless to say, his life has gone through some changes. I’m enjoying creating the story and I hope, once it’s out there, you enjoy it too. In addition, I’m also mentally plotting a book to follow Chloe’s Surrender. Tentatively titled, Dark Embrace. I think that’s all I will say about that for now 😉
Remember to follow me on Pinterest if you crave a peek into what inspires me to write. You’ll even find boards for works in progress.
We authors are a visual lot, and I don’t think I’m alone in saying, it helps fuel the imagination to look at pretty things whilst plotting. Here’s a glimpse at what I used as inspiration for the world of Descent Into Darkness. But do keep in mind, the story is yours once you become the reader. Which means you are free to “see” whatever you desire within the pages of the story.
