Bookworm Mia: Hi Aimee! I am very excited about this interview! I know you must be so busy, thank you for your time!
To start things off, we'd love to know, do you have any routine that gets you in the mood for writing?
BM: That just sounds wonderful!
Reading Illuminate, I must say, WOW, that's a new and thrilling take on angels' powers and myth, Haven doesn't have angel powers that would ordinarily come to mind like super strength or flying, what was your inspiration for that?
BM: And it's such a compelling update! The suspense build up as Haven is discovering her unique power (and the ugly truth behind all the glamour in the hotel), with the readers not knowing if Haven's power would be enough to take on Aurelia and The Outfit, makes Illuminate riveting. Definitely something to look forward to.
Lexington Hotel being rebuilt and all that history about Al Capone, could you tell us your inspiration for incorporating Al Capone's history to the story?
BM: I thought that the cover was stunning and the readers would be thrilled that it's not just another girl in a red dress cover, Haven actually wore that dress in the story and what happened that night was amazing. Could you tell us a bit more about the cover art?
BM: Liz Tardiff and Marta Pozzan both did a spectacular job! Everyone is just in love with the cover, those wings just tell so much and Pozzan's wistful look is perfect.
I read that you finished the second book, congratulations! Anything you can reveal for us to anticipate?
BM: *jaw drops* I'm team Lance buuut Lucian is just as irresistible! *squeals*
I can't wait to get more of Lucian's vulnerable side (and Lance's jealous side tee-hee) in the next book! And New Orleans! (Maybe Haven will be going to a sexy masquerade ball next!)
and this awesome book trailer:
