It is my pleasure to host author N. G. Valentina on my blog today.
Me: What made you pen down Encounter?
Valentina: ‘Encounter’ is the first book in the series. I was inspired to write the series because we usually read about standard live stories that evolve out of traditional situations. The Fear and Desire Series is a suspenseful tale with a love story that unfolded from an unconventional situation. Those love stories, in my opinion, are much more enjoyable to read about.
Me: It is a romantic suspense. Is it your favourite genre to read as well?
Valentina: Romantic Suspense is definitely one of my favorite genres to write and to read. Although, I also enjoy and dive into non-fictional as well as biographical literature.
Me: Describe both your protagonist in 3 words each.
Valentina: Christine Gareth- three words to describe her: attractive, self-confident, intelligent. Seth Osborne- three words to describe him: sexy, protector, fearless.
Me: Encounter is the 1st book in The Fear and Desire Series. How many more books do you plan to release in it?
Valentina: The Fear and Desire Series will be composed of 5 books, with Encounter being the first one.
Me: Will they follow the same protagonist as well or will be revolve around other main characters?
Valentina: All 5 books will revolve around the same main characters. However, each book will introduce new key characters to add its suspense.
Me: What do you like to do in your free time?
Valentina: During my free time, I enjoy reading, hiking, or visiting Disneyland with my kids and husband! I also enjoy world travel.
Me: The cover is superb. How did it come to be?
Valentina: I worked with a professional graphic designer to customize the cover for Encounter. I had the vision in mind, and she produced it perfectly! Also, the red font symbolizes the intense desire that develops in the first book.
Me: Are there any other projects underway?
Valentina: I’m always writing 2-3 different books at a time. Not only am I actively finishing up the remaining books for The Fear and Desire Series, but I’m also working on 2 more novels. Both will be in the suspense/romantic genre.
