Okay, I'll be honest. I'm not the best at keeping up on my blog. When it comes to my book life, author and reader are fighting for first place. Blogger is a sad second, maybe even third since swag making might be #2. I want to get better. I really do. I want to be in touch with readers more often. So, to begin, I'm going to introduce some of my fellow authors throughout the month of March, starting with the fabulous Lila Felix.
Lila writes about ordinary people who fall extraordinarily in wild, true love. Let's get to know her a little better:
What would you be doing right now if you were not an author?
If I were not an author, I would still be editing books for indie authors and loving every second of it.
5 years ago: what were you doing?
Five years ago, I was working nights at Wal-Mart in their cash office, counting tons of money every night.
Do you have a certain writing ritual?
My writing ritual is to listen to some inspiring music for about a half hour or read some before starting. After that, I try to write whenever I can, sneaking in the time gaps in our schedules.
What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author?
My toughest criticism has been that my endings aren’t always what the reader expected. I see this as a criticism and a compliment. I don’t really want to write what everyone expects.
Can you tell us about your books, specifically Lightning Kissed?
Colby Evans can leap from one country to the next in a heartbeat. She can see every sunset in every time zone in the same day. She can travel across the world in a flash. She defies gravity and physics with every breath she takes. She's tested her abilities and found them limitless.
She is the lightning. She is Lucent. And nothing can stop her.
Theodore Ramsey isn't supposed to be able to flash like Colby. The power of travel is passed on from mother to daughter in their people. Except once in every hundred generations.
Theo is the one.
He can flash like Colby. And it makes him a target to their enemies and to himself. His abilities change everything he knows about life and throws his future into an uncertain tangent. In fact, the only thing certain in his life is the love he feels for Colby.
Their love defies time and space and has been the only constant thing in their lives since childhood. But even their infallible love will be stretched to its limits.
She will risk her life to protect him. But he will risk everything to protect them all.
Doesn't it sound great?
