Author Lola James Discusses her Spellbound Series and Bound to You

We were fortunate enough here in A Mama's Corner of the World to have author Lola James sit down for an interview with us as a part of the blog tour for her latest book, Bound to You, from the Spellbound series.  We love it when we are able to learn more about our favorite authors--in the author's own words!   

AMCOTW:  What was your inspiration for the Spellbound Series?  When did you begin writing it? When did you begin Book 3? 

Lola James:  The Spellbound series came to me randomly. I was on a writing break from another book and I was looking for something to read with some Greek gods, I couldn’t find any so I wrote one. I started Bound to Remember in August 2011 and was finished at the end of the month. Book three I started in October of 2012 and wasn’t happy with it so I re-wrote until it was perfect… to me anyway. 

AMCOTW:  Tell us about the cover art for Bound to You.  Who designed it? Why did you choose it? 

Lola James:  Stephanie at Once Upon a Time Covers made it for me. I design all of my covers. Every book cover of the Spellbound Series is a scene from the book and Bound to You is the first scene in chapter one.

AMCOTW:  Who is your favorite character from your book and why? 

Lola James:  I absolutely LOVE Dawn. I sometimes wish that I was a southern belle and I get to live my fantasy through Dawn. I love her. She is sassy and she doesn’t take any mess from anyone. But she is still a lady at the end of the day.

AMCOTW:  Who is your least favorite character from Bound to You and why?

Lola James:  Persephone that was an easy one, she is the villain of the series and she is relentless. Her tactics make you hate her but that’s why I wrote her that way. She is the ultimate mean girl.

AMCOTW:  Which character, if any, are most like you in Bound to You?

Lola James:  Dawn, I mean minus being a doctor, witch, and a pageant princess. LOL I put a lot of my no nonsense attitude into her.

AMCOTW:  What is something interesting about the Spellbound Series (or this book) that your readers and ours would like to know?

Lola James:  The Greek god Hades will shock you in my books… in a good way. It might be the only time you’ll ever root for the bad guy.

AMCOTW:   Tell us a little about Lola James when she is away from writing.  What hobbies, talents, and adventures are we most likely to find you involved in when not writing?

Lola James:  Well I love to skate (like four wheel skate), I bowl, I read more than I write as of late, I LOVE to travel, I bake sweets, I’m active with yoga, and I play the piano.

AMCOTW: How can readers contact you or find out more about your books? 

Lola James:  Facebook is preferred

AMCOTW:  What can your readers expect from you in the future?  What projects are you working on?

Lola James:  I am wrapping up the second book in another series, Defying Fate. I am writing my first Mystery and Contemporary romance both I plan on getting out this year sometime. 

AMCOTW:  What is most rewarding about your role as an author--and as the author of Bound to You?

Lola James:  Having people tell me how much they love my books and telling me to never stop writing! That helps me on days I lack self-confidence. It is rewarding to know that my story made someone’s day
