MY INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR L.L. HUNTER!!
What’s your name and what genre would you consider your books to be?
L.L. Hunter. YA sci fi and fantasy, and NA romance
Tell me about your book. How did you come up with that (story, angle, idea)?
Angel of Night, and the Angels of London series sprang from the Legend of the Archangel series and The Eden Chronicles. The Angels of London series is a spin off from those two series and set in the same universe. I wanted to tell the story of Eden’s cousin Gabe and their adventures in London together.
How did you get interested in writing this particular genre (historical novels, mysteries, sci-fi, children’s books, etc.)?
I’ve always been interested in fantasy worlds ever since I was a child. I didn’t have many friends growing up, so I got lost in magical worlds. You can let your imagination grow wild.
What kind of research did you do for this book?
Not much research was required, but I did look at images of locations in London. Since this is an urban fantasy series, I had to be a little true to it.
Can you tell me about your Series?
The Angels of London series follows Gabe as he learns what its like to be a Nephilim. His parents are not in the picture, so he only has his cousin and aunt and uncle for support. At the school for angels, he meets a mysterious girl, who turns out to be his guardian angel. Along the way they uncover many secrets and mysteries surrounding their world. There is also a bit of controversy surrounding their romance. That’s all I’ll say, unless you’ve read the first two books.
Do you have a favorite book out of this series?
Oh, I can’t really choose! But if I had to pick one, I’d say I had the most fun writing Angel of Night.
Was it always meant to become a series?
Yes. I’d always planned for it be a trilogy.
What’s a typical working day like for you? When and where do you write? Do you set a daily writing goal?
A typical day sees me watching the news while I drink my coffee and have my breakfast, then I go into my office. I check my emails and reply to any messages first, then I check my sales reports and do any marketing that needs to be done.
Then I take a short break and clean the kitchen and have lunch, before heading back into my office to write some words. I try and aim for 2 thousand words per day.
Do you have a new book in the making and if so, what’s the name of your upcoming book?
I’m currently working on a New Adult contemporary romance / romantic comedy duology. It’s a Hollywood romance featuring a writer and an actor. It’s set around the concept of how a single photograph can make or break your career. Part one is called Woman in the Photograph, and part two is Man Amongst the Stars. It follows Jack and Chloe as they navigate the ups and downs of fame.
What’s the best thing about being an author?
The best part about being an author is all the events I get to attend, and knowing my words and stories have made an impact on my readers.
What writing advice do you have for aspiring authors?
Keep writing. Grow a thick skin and love what you do. Don’t go into this expecting to make money. It’s hard work. But rewarding when you see your finished book.
Can you give us a few tasty morsels from your work-in-progress?
Here’s a teaser from my upcoming book, Woman in the Photograph.
My story was personal, but it was no longer my secret to keep. Jack’s and mine relationship was thrilling and sexy and fun when it was just us, but now that the world knew about us, it was time to face the facts and put on my big girl undies.
