Q&A with Julie Wall

Author of the Valley Of Glamorgan

What gave you the inspiration to write this book?
I was inspired to write Valley Of Glamorgan by my love of paranormal romance novels. I love the genre, and decided that I wanted to contribute to it.

Who is your favorite character in the book?
My favorite character in the book would have to be Carmina, she goes through a lot of tribulations during the book, but she always keeps the reader intrigued.

 Which came first, the title or the novel? 
The first few chapters of the book were written, before I selected a title. I wanted something unique and fitting to the book, so I looked up places that fit the description of where the book takes place, and I found the Vale of Glamorgan, which is located in Wales. I adapted the name and changed the Vale to Valley and thought that it was fitting for the unique location in the book. 

What scene in the book are you most proud of, and why?
That is a hard one; because the book itself was a struggle at times .I experienced writer’s block a lot, during the writing process. However; the scene I am the most proud of would be when Declan has his animal ritual. I had contemplated for days on how to orchestrate it, and even though I was expecting to change it many times .I went ahead and wrote it out, and after reading it over, I was proud that I had went with that scenario. I managed to capture the ceremony in an unexpected way that still surprises me.

Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a writer from then to now?
I have learned a lot from when I began writing until now. One thing being that it is a lot harder to get your book out there to the public then I had thought, especially if you are a self-published author. I also learned that it will take endless hours, and a lot of motivation to write a book. Anyone can write down words, but it takes a dedicated writer to continue to write after you have to go back over the book and change things over and over, until it is to the best of your abilities.

What do you like most about the cover of the book?
My favorite part about the cover most definitely would be the pink writing, and the color of the forest. I love how well they blended together.

What new release book are you looking most forward to in 2013?
I am really looking forward to the new installment in the Grey wolves’ series, which is written by Quinn Loftis, and is a great series for paranormal romance novels.

What was your favorite book in 2012?
It is hard to pick just one, but I would have to say my favorite was Watersong by Amanda Hocking. I love her take on mermaids or sirens as she writes them.

 What’s up next for you?
I am currently working on the second book in the Valley Of Glamorgan series, Which will be available on kindle soon.

Is there anything that you would like to add?
I really hope that people will give my book a chance, and hopefully they will fall in love with the characters and the story line! I really wanted to write a book that captures love in a unique world, and to help people escape their everyday lives and embark on an unforgettable journey.
