L.J Talks With Dan Burton
Being a new author is not easy; there are many challenges and one of them is getting your ideas onto paper. This is what author L.J Sealey has done and has produced a new paranormal romance series, due to be released in November 2013. I was privileged to interview L.J for @FeedMyReads
To be honest it wasn’t something I thought about doing until about 6 or 7 years ago even though I’ve been an avid reader for a long time. After a career change, I suddenly had some spare time on my hands and from nowhere this idea for a story kept niggling at me. I couldn’t ignore it anymore and sat down in front of my laptop and before I knew it, the little idea had suddenly grown into something that I just had to write. And that was it. I was hooked.
In the literary world I would find it hard to pick one person. The likes of Jeaniene Frost, J.R. Ward and Lara Adrian are inspirational to me in the sense that I love to read their books and their writing has influenced me in many ways. There are also many indie authors who have influenced me; S.L. Jennings being one of them. Seeing her journey, and others, and how possible it is to get your own book out there has been really encouraging.
I work with my husband now and then. He is a singer and gigs around the country and when he performs with his live band I sing backup vocals. So I enjoy singing. And I also have a book blog which keeps me busy. I love to write about the books I love.
I was actually writing something completely different and for some reason this character kept popping into my head. It wasn’t anyone I could add to my current novel but he just wouldn’t go away. So, I was curious about him and decided to let him talk to me. I put the novel I was writing on hold and it went from there. Turned out Michael Warden had a story to tell.
