Fates Design Tour: Author Interview!

Wow it's been so busy on the blog this week! But that's okay because I love being apart of these tours =) I was asked by the host of These Paper Worlds tours to be apart of the Fates Design by Lola James tour. I decided that I wanted to interview Lola so thats what I did. But before I share that with you here is a little bit about the book and author!

Fate's Design by Lola James
Book Blurb: (Taken from Goodreads)
A summer vacation in Italy with her twin sister, Morgan, is just what Megan Romano needs. But instead of fun, wine, and relaxation, she finds unexpected romance. Alexandros DiPiero, a sexy and mysterious Italian businessman, falls for Megan the minute he lays eyes on her, but Megan knows it’s too good to be true.

Increasingly haunting dreams that warn of danger and destiny plague Megan’s every sleeping moment. As her nightmares become deadly and her love life heats up, Megan will come face to face with her worst fear.

About the author:
Lola James calls herself a "hopeless romantic," which leads itself well to the paranormal romance genre. She is the author of Bound To Remember, the first novel in The Spellbound Series.

Now it's time to welcome Lola to the blog! I had an awesome experience interviewing her and I can't wait to read Fate's Desgin!

1. Where did you get your idea for Fate's Design?
I am a big believer in fate and I that everything happens for a reason, so when I started writing I knew that would be my concept. I also have always had strange dreams that are somewhat de ja vuish so I wanted to incorporate that too into this book.
2. How long did you know you wanted to be a writer before you actually started writing?
I started writing when I was young but I never thought I wanted to be a writer. It wasn’t until I fell back in love with reading that I the writing bug bit me again. Then the words flowed and I sort of fell into becoming a writer.
3. How long where the characters of Fate's Design living in your head before you put them on paper?
Well, Alex has been there for a while. I would say a few years. He was my concept on the perfect guy with flaws (I think that’s how every character should be because no one is perfect). The rest just formed as I wrote. The book started with a dream that I had and I woke up and wrote the dream out. After that my main character took the lead. I had no idea how she would turn out but I love her now!
4. What advice would you give to writers who are looking to become published authors?
Follow your dreams don’t sweat the small stuff and just write! Get the story out of your head and on to paper! That fast you do that everything else will just fall into place.
5. What is your favorite part of being an author?
Meeting new people that are fans of my books! I can’t really say or think that they are friends of mine because I haven’t done anything to have fans. I geek out from emails and messages from them because it is so unreal but I love the feeling!
6. Do you have a favorite place to write or something that gets you motivated to write?
Music motivates me and I have an office in my bedroom that is where the magic happens. Sometimes I’ll get in the shower and my muse will jump in with me!
7. Lastly, can we expect any more books from you in the future?
I hope to publish at least four more before the end of the year! This will include the next book in this series and a few other projects that I am working on!
I hope you guys enjoyed that interview! Don't forget to check out all the author stops on the tour!!


I love to hear from you guys so leave as many as your heart desires =)
