Please give a warm welcome to author Nicola Rose
Tell us a bit about yourself
I live in the UK with my husband and two sons. I’m a total boardgame geek. I collect tarantulas, we currently have 10! Mostly, I love to stay home reading, writing, and playing – but I do also love to get the family out into the countryside for walks and mountain-biking.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I’ve certainly always been creative and enjoyed writing stories, but I wanted to be a professional photographer. And I was for a while, until the children came along and I found that staying home to write stories was much more agreeable than traipsing around at all hours with my camera!
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
The inspiration for my latest book came from the cover! I saw a premade cover that I loved, purchased it, and the entire story flowed from there. All I knew was that the heroine would be a genie and that it would be my first reverse harem. It’s such a striking cover!
What are you working on now?
I have two projects on the go at the moment. Firstly, I’ve been accepted to write in the shared world of a well-known author (but I can’t say who just yet as it’s not been announced!) so I’m working on that. I can say that it’s my first contemporary romance, full of angst and steam, and a second-chance at love.
I’m also plotting a fae reverse harem! So excited to finally dive into faery realms!
Do you have any quirks while working?
Not really, other than the endless battle to avoid procrastination and actually write, but I think that’s a shared problem for all authors!
What are your hopes for the future?
To keep writing! To make it big. To have my books made into movies. You know, the usual…
I’d also like to write some traditional mainstream fantasy.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Find your tribe! The author and reader communities on social media are amazing. Interact and find your people. Learn from them, keep striving for better. Always support other authors, spread the love, and avoid all drama and negativity like the plague. Oh, and keep writing 😊
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Massive thanks for your support. I’m constantly blown away by the love. Every single review, interaction, and message all mean the world to me. I can’t ever thank you enough!
