J.L. Oiler was one of the first people I met in publishing, way back when I first started in ebooks, and we share a publisher or two. I'm happy to have her come visit today to talk about her new release, Indulgence, volume 1 of the new series Glimpses of Midnight.
I received an email from the Staff at Rebel Ink Press explaining they’d come up with an idea for a cooperative paranormal series between myself and Suzzana C. Ryan. They provided this sort of vague mini blurb and left it our capable hands from there. Everything from the characters, subgenre's, locations, and heat levels were left up to the two of us.
What was it like to work with Suzzana C. Ryan?
Amazing! It was as if we clicked instantly, feeding of each other’s strengths and striding overtop and weaknesses. Suzzana is great to work with and I would not want to tackle this project with anyone else.
Was it difficult to interconnect the stories, yet produce stories that could stand alone?
Not really as much as you might expect. The two of us work so well together that when the characters seemed automatically fit into our given situations. We simply had to read the other persons work in progress and our minds began building on side elements and events to include into our own pieces.
How did you create this world?
Lots of Brainstorming and caffeine
Will we be seeing more from this series?
Certainly, both me and Suzzana are currently working on the next installments of the series which we are hoping to release in December!
So, give us a summary of your book, volume 1.
