And Interview with the Author: Lexi Miles
How Good Can It Get by Alan Cohen has got to be my go to as far as books to read. I read a lot, but I circle back to that one because I never tire of it. The story is one of those that expands the way you think, is positive, inspires me, and always gets me smiling. I also enjoy reading romances with a variety of strong plots and feisty characters by either Chloe Quinn or Dakota Storm.
Where do you find inspiration for most of your books?
From everything around me from a song, a feeling that I am having, or a subject that I am fond of and just have to write. Most recently, when writing Convince Me, I came across the idea of in-home hosted meals. (Meals prepared for a group of people that are strangers and want a homemade meal versus going out to a restaurant that are pre-booked via an online service.) I thought the idea was incredibly interesting and that it would be a refreshing way for my romantic leads of the story to meet.
Do you have a favorite writing space?
Yes! I have to admit Olivia, giggling as I say this, until you asked about it I had not realized that I kind of do! I love to sit in my chair at my desk legs up and crossed beneath me as I write.
What tactics have you found to be most effective against writer’s block?
I have a few tricks, but when I get blocked often times it is because my brain needs a break. So, I step away and return when I am fresh. If I don’t have time to step away I either remove the last part, skip to another part I am inspired to write, or although this may sound silly, I stand up turn on music and dance around. Any of these tend to really work for me and keeps things fresh whenever I write.
Are you an active participant in the cover design of your books?
Yes. My publisher Hunter Grant Publishing allows me to have a lot of say in my covers as well as final approval. So far, all of the covers have hit my vision or surpassed it in spades!
