Questions for author Marley Valentine

1 – Have you always wanted to be a writer?

I can’t say that I have. I’ve always been someone who would keep a journal, and wholeheartedly believe in writing down my thoughts and feelings, but I never anticipated that I could turn that into what I do now.

2 – When you start a book series – do you know the couples who will appear in the following books? Do you know what the plot will be?

Sometimes I do, and sometimes a side character will just take up a whole scene and you just know you have to give them a book.

As for the plot, I don’t always know it in chronological order, but I always know what the “fight” will be, and I write the story around that moment.

3 – Did you write a book and decide not to publish it?

No, not at this stage. I have stopped writing something and moved on to something else, but I haven’t completely finished a book and not published it.

4 – Is there a topic you will never write about? If so, what is it?

I never say never

5 – By what do you choose a cover for a book?

I usually just spend hours on Instagram and photographer websites hoping for the perfect cover. Sometimes if I’m lucky, it just shows up without me looking for it.

6 – Where did you get the inspiration for the stories?

Anywhere. Usually a mix of real life, television and music

7 – Who is your favorite couple you wrote about?

Hmmmm, I don’t think I can answer that. I love them all for different reasons.

8 – How long does it take you to write one book?

I don’t usually write every day, so it’s hard to give an accurate total, but if I was to try and put all the days together, I would say about three months. Maybe more depending on what else is going on in my life.

9 – What is your favorite genre to read?

Contemporary romance has my heart. I love love in all of its forms, and I will read all sub genres.

10 – If you could turn one of your books into a movie – which book would you choose?

Definitely Without You.
