ANGEL FIRE BLOG TOUR: Q&A WITH L.A. WEATHERLY

So today I am the final stop on the Angel Fire blog tour and I have an exclusive interview with the amazing L.A. Weatherly so I hope you enjoy!


Would you be an AK, Angel or Half Angel?

I think I'd have to choose AK. Though it's a dangerous life, they have a great
camaraderie when they're working together as a team. Being a half-angel would be
really difficult, I think; neither Willow nor Seb have an easy time of it before they
meet each other. And I couldn't possibly choose 'angel' without revealing my evil
side. ;)

Seb or Alex... which is your guy?

Ooh, tough one! I can't actually choose. When I'm writing the Alex scenes I'm totally
in love with Alex, and then when I'm writing the Seb scenes, it's him I'm in love with.
In fact, Angel Fire has shown me how utterly fickle I can be!

What was your inspiration for Angel and why did you pick Angels over Vampires or
Werewolves?

It's funny, but I didn't really start out thinking 'I want to write paranormal romance,
so what type of creature should it be about?' Instead, I was just looking for the right
structure for the love story I wanted to tell, which as it turned out needed to have
a supernatural aspect to work. I was also trying to do something original, so was
disappointed to realise that other authors had been writing about angels around the
same time - though as it happened, this worked in Angel's favour. The idea about
angels being beautiful parasites was just one of those wonderful 'what if' things that
come to you sometimes...'What if angels are real, but they're not good and kind like
we think?'

Are any of the characters based on you or people you know?

Most of my characters are based on different aspects of myself, which is why I feel
that I know them so well. The one who's the most like me is probably Seb, with all
his complications and contradictions.

Will there be a movie of Angel?

I hope so. Very excitingly, the film rights to the series have recently been optioned,
so keep your fingers crossed!

When did you know you wanted to write?

I've written almost literally my whole life - one of my first memories is of writing a
story and being very serious about getting it published.

What is your favourite book/s or author/s?

I always find it difficult to answer this question, because it changes on such a regular
basis! (See above point re: fickle.) However, one of my all-time favourites is I Capture

the Castle by Dodie Smith.

How does it feel to see your book in a bookshop or to know you’ve created a
worldwide phenomenon?

Wow, thank you! I don't know that I've quite created a worldwide phenomenon
yet, but I've certainly been extremely touched by people's enthusiasm for the Angel
series. It's wonderful to feel that readers love something that you've written as much
as you do.

If you could meet any 3 people in the world (dead or alive) who would they be?

How about the ultimate writers' dinner-party? For me, this would be Margaret
Mitchell, Mark Twain and L. M. Montgomery.

Thanks for the great questions - and I hope your readers enjoy Angel Fire! :)

Don't forget to go the the amazing:

  1. That was awesome. I also found this funny video on Youtube by a Canadian comedian. You might want to check it out. http://youtu.be/jDEoprzTYyA

  2. I read the synopsis of the second book, and I figured it would play out very similarly to what you said. And for me, there just wasn’t enough of the rest of the story to really carry it beyond the love triangle.

A COURT OF MIST AND FURY - SARAH J MAAS - REVIEW

Book:  A court of mist and fury

Rating: A

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court – but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms – and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future – and the future of a world cleaved in two.

It has been a long time since I've loved a book as much this. A court of mist and fury is by far the best book that I have read in 2016 so far, and easy surpassed it's predecessor a court of thorn and roses.

The plot of this was so incredibly per…
