Today we have author London Casey for an interview, she will also be sharing her books with us so make sure to check them out. Book three was just recently released.
Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?
I always wanted to be a writer. It was just something that clicked inside me and never let go. I love my job and would never give it up for a second.
When did you first consider yourself a “writer”?
The second I wrote my first sentence. Don’t as what… I don’t remember.
Do you do another job except for writing and can you tell us more about it?
I’m lucky enough to write full time right now. It’s a dream come true!
What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarize it in less than 20 words what would you say?
The last of The Boys of DownCrash trilogy is titled Some Kind of Hell.
Annie and Logan get their chance… but can they survive dark secrets and scary surprises in life, love, and music?
What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
Lots of new adult books! I have another trilogy coming and a collaboration with romance author, Karolyn James.
What genre would you place your books into?
New adult romance
What made you decide to write that genre of book?
I just love everything about new adult romance. It’s edgy, it’s real, and full of romance. It’s real.
Do you have a favorite character from your books? And why are they your favorite?
I love Tatum from Torn To Pieces. He is just so tall, so sexy… and a drummer.
How long have you been writing?, and who or what inspired you to write?
I’ve been writing since I was a child. The inspiration came when I started reading. I wanted to do the same thing… create stories.
Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?
I write anytime I can. I’m not picky with where. As long as I have headphones… I can disappear anywhere!
Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?
Yes and no. I promise I won’t, but I do. I love seeing the reaction of readers – good and bad.
Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?
I try to go in with a title. I like have the title revolve around the book and I always have some kind of outline when I write.
How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?
I try to get names that fit the personality. I imagine the people and let the names come. For places, I try to keep it the same. I like making up cities and giving them their own vibe.
Do you decide on character traits (ie shy, quiet, tomboy girl) before writing the whole book or as you go along?
I try and imagine all my characters before I write them. I’ve very organized - lol
Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?
ALL OF THE ABOVE! I’m not picky…
Your favorite food is?
Your favorite color is?
Thanks for being here today London, and now a little bit more about London’s New Adult Trilogy.
All Scarlett wanted to do was thank the sexy stranger who helped her push away a drunk, grabby college boy at a bar. When that stranger identifies himself as Tripp and then takes the stage as the lead singer and guitarist for rock band, DownCrash, everything in Scarlett's life begins to change.
Her best friend, Andy, confesses his love for her and leaves her with what should be an easy decision to make... yet each time she looks in Andy's eyes, she can't help but face her secret, nightmarish past.
The only thing that makes Scarlett feel better is Tripp... but Tripp isn't just a bad boy rockstar, he's hurt. He's in pain. He tries to hide his pain in a bottle, but Scarlett believes that, perhaps, their secrets can help each other.
Friendship and love is suddenly put to the test, and Scarlett is torn... Will she choose an easy, comfortable, happy life or a life clouded with mixed signals, raw emotion, and intense romance?
(The Boys of DownCrash #2)
Trying to forget about the promises she was forced to make as a young, naive eighteen year old, Maggie creates a false persona that paints her as the girl who never says no...
However, once she lays eyes on the drummer of DownCrash, everything clicks. From his sexy lip ring to the way he stares at her from the stage, Tatum becomes everything Maggie has ever fantasized about.
When trouble catches up to her in a parking garage after a DownCrash show, and Tatum shows up out of nowhere to protect her. For the first time in years, she is intimidated by a man's kindness and sexiness, and not by his temper and jealousy. As real feelings begin to grow Maggie is faced with her past and wonders if she'll ever be able to escape the promises she once made to keep the promises she wants to make right now.
Some Kind of Hell (The Boys of DownCrash #3)
In the trilogy finale, shy DownCrash bassist, Logan, has his sexy eyes on Maggie's best friend, Annie. But Annie is still reeling from the way her relationship ended. She's hurt, angry, jealous, and the last thing she wants is some wannabe rockstar looking for his next hookup... although it may just be what she needs.
Logan wants more for his life. The past is living in his apartment, which forces him to spend nights in his car to avoid reliving the nightmare over and over again.
When Annie's guard comes down, tragedy strikes and their lives will be changed forever. Determined to win Annie over and help DownCrash get signed to a record deal, Logan has his work cut out for him. His gorgeous body and no-bullshit personality may just be the key to both...
