Solstice Sizzle (Book 2)
Johan Rogers is a sharpshooting family lawyer who is close to burn out. This is affecting his ability with the Magiks and his once reliable skill as a medium. On a whim, he’s come south to Edi’s shop, Crystal Sands, for a break over the summer solstice. He’s looking for fun, nothing serious, and definitely no commitment.
That’s how things start with the stunning Nova. But then a side of him he’s repressed to be a lawyer begins to emerge. Can he get a handle on his emotions, or will Nova help him to realize his full potential with the Magiks?
Nova McGinnis is struggling to find her unique skill with the Magiks. She’s been repressed too long, and despite Edi’s help, her ability is erratic at best. It’s been nearly a month of trying and she’s made minimal progress. Frustrated, she sees Johan as the perfect distraction.
It was meant to be just a summer love affair, but things are developing into something more lasting. Will a hot love affair prevent Nova from discovering her Magik ability, or help her?
As a best selling Amazon Author, I was keen to learn more about Lilliana,
Q1: What inspired you to write Solstice Sizzle?
I’m writing a series, Pagan Pleasures, which is centered around some of the pagan celebrations in a calendar year. One of these is the summer solstice, so this became the source of my inspiration for the book, Solstice Sizzle. This along with my fascination with psychic abilities. I enjoy metaphysical theories, and I drew on my experiences, and knowledge to inspire this story, and make up the characters and their HEA.
Q2: Who would you want to play the main characters in your book if your novel was optioned for tv / film?
Chris Evans would look great as Johan. Mila Kuinis would be fabulous as Nova.
Q3: How many rejections did you get before you got a publishing deal?
I haven’t counted. A lot of publishing houses never actually got back to me, so I had to assume their response was a ‘no’. It just got to the point where I was more focussed on sending my books out into the world, and then writing the next book.
Q4: How did you deal with them when you started out?
Chocolate, red wine, and friends! Then I would go and write my next book 🙂
Q5: Which authors inspired you to write?
I’m going back to my childhood favorites with this list! I really enjoyed books by May Gibbs, CS Lewis, and Enid Blyton.
Q6: What are your writing routines?
My main routine is to go to my favorite cafés, get a coffee, and sit and write for a few hours. I get my best work done out in a café, while drinking a flat white soy!
Q7: If you could go back to when you first started writing what one piece advice would you give yourself
To follow my intuition more than the advice out there. Each author’s journey is different, and it is about finding what works for me.
Q8: What would you say to someone who wants to write?
Go for it! Initially when starting out, try and make writing a habit, and write every day no matter what. Join some groups and connect with other writers. Work out who your audience is that you’re writing for, and above all have fun.
Q9: If you weren’t writing what would you be doing?
I would be teaching!
Q10: Tell me something about yourself your readers might not know?
I’m a Reiki Master!
