Elemental Reality Blog Tour Interview/Giveaway
G'day Book Lovers,
We are the next stop on the Elemental Reality Blog Tour and I had the pleasure of interviewing the Author Cesya Cuono. So sit back, relax and enjoy!
What was the hardest part about writing your book?
Hardest part was writing without an outline to guide me. Because of that, it took me a lot longer to write some chapters because I had no idea what direction my brain was going to take me.
What was the most surprising things you learned in writing your book?
I’m great at describing the scene around my character. I never knew I was able to do that since I never had a reason to do so.
Who designed the cover?
My publisher and author, Laura Kreitzer. She’s pretty much a cover design goddess.
How did you come up with the title?
I had a rough time doing it. I went through so many titles but none of them seemed to fit. One day I had my music playing and a song by From First to Last came on and it caught my attention. It had nothing to do with the title but for some reason Elemental Reality came to mind and it was love at first thought.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A teacher. At least that’s what my mom told me. I can’t, for the life of me, remember. Actually, I don’t think my mom remembered either. She probably just said the first career that came to mind.
Are you working on anything now? If so, can you tell us a little about it?
I’m currently working on book two in the series, Battle Scars. Because I like to be very vague with almost everything, just know that there will be A LOT revealed in this book. Even I can’t believe what’s happening!
Can you share with us your favourite quote from your book?
"You don’t want him. You fear him. I wanted him.No. Yes. Stop! Admit it. We’re done. The mental war in my head was about to turn bloody.”
