The Literary Vixen presents…
Joining us today is J.R. Walden! Her co-authored debut novel, Rose Bound: The Rose and King series Book 1 released on February 14th.
Congrats on your newest release! Tell me a bit about your book?
This co-authored book is a mix of crime and supernatural. You get to take a journey of self discovery with a damaged vampire prince to learn who murdered his parents and how he played a role in it. Mob bosses and wolf fighting. Lust and love. I think this book has a bit of it all.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I READ! And watch tv show. If I can visualize but verbalize I draw the scene or character.
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
I started writing when I was very very young. I’ve always loved it!
What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?
Early on Twilight and Harry Potter we’re big influences. But I’d say I began writing before I had even discover my love of reading.
If your book was to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it?
Oh Lordy. Ian (Damon from VD) would have to be someone! Hmm I’d say Chris Hemsworth would be an amazing Ollie! Voice and all. For Gavin I envision someone like Christian Grey from the movies.
What is the best part of your day?
Whenever I get a pic of someone who has enjoyed our book baby! It’s always a highlight.
If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Artistic, shy, animal lover
What are you reading now?
I’m currently listening to The Bone Witch. I’m enjoying it so far!
What advice would you give to other authors?
Keep going! Don’t let your doubts or reservations keep your words from the page. I almost did.
What is the one thing you want people to know about you and your books?
My books come from my heart. Every character and every scene is felt and thought over countless times. I want my readers to feel with the characters. To me, that’s good writing.
Thank you J.R. Walden for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Rose Bound today!
Ousted for being a human sympathizer, Prince Gavin has found himself in the belly of the Underground, a world where ghouls rule and werewolves fight to the death.
After learning of his parent’s murder, Gavin is called upon to endure the Rose Bound ceremony and claim his covens throne with a wife.
Forces are rallying against him, some closer to home than he anticipates. Finding a murderer, leading a coup and himself, proves to be a journey that will change his kingdom forever.
But, when Gavin’s soulmate goes missing, none of that matters. Nothing will stand in his way to find her, not even his own demons.
Wolves, fae, vampires and witches are only a few of J.R.’s favorite things. She also enjoys riding horses, beach trips, and spending time with her husband and fur babies.
