My fellow Escapee Juliet Madison is celebrating the release of her third book with Escape Publishing, STARSTRUCK IN SEATTLE, a contemporary romance novella with a touch of romagic and she's here to spill the beans...don't you adore that cover?
Aspiring actress Anna Hilford might only have a small role in a leading television drama, but she longs to be dreamboat Karl Drake’s leading lady. Sick of being loveless and overlooked, Anna seeks the help of intuitive love coach, Lulu, from LuluTheLoveAngel.com to give her the courage and determination to follow her destiny. But fate has different ideas, Lulu has undisclosed power, and Anna is about to realise that life happens while you’re busy making plans...
I love the romagic in your books - I love that word! Where do you get your ideas from?
Who said watching movies was a lazy pastime? I got the idea for this story when Sleepless in Seattle was on TV. In fact, I get quite a few ideas when watching TV or movies, I find the visuals and dialogue triggers scene and story ideas in my mind, so I make sure to have a notepad handy. ;)
In the case of Sleepless in Seattle (one of my favourite movies by the way), I thought, instead of a call-in-radio show where people ask for advice, what if there was a website that specialised in helping people anonymously with their love dilemmas? So I thought up the idea for a Love Coach, but as I like to do in many of my stories, I decided to give it a slight magical twist, and gave the character of Lulu some other-worldly powers that help her to give destiny a shove in the right direction. But, as Lulu discovers, doing destiny’s work can be a pain in the wings, and may be more challenging than she thought.
I also like the idea of fate, and whether there is that one soulmate for each person, so I’ve explored this concept in the book too. What if you can’t find them? And what if who you think is your soulmate really isn’t? How do you know? That’s where Lulu steps in with her subtle magical abilities and irons out the kinks in destiny’s path, to make sure that the people who are right for each other, find each other. But as I mentioned before, this isn’t always an easy task.
I hope to write more novellas in this series, each with a similar title and set in different cities, and each bringing back the quirky and loveable character that is Lulu (oh, and her cute dog, Spark). ;)
