Author Interview Surviving Book Tour


I’m hosting an interview for the book tour for romantic suspense novel “Surviving”. I hope you enjoy the interview.

1. How long have you been writing?

     I’ve written in journals for as long as I can remember. This writing led to my stories that I now write. It took me nearly a year to write Surviving.
2. Is Surviving your first book? If not, please tell us a little about your first book.
     Surviving is my first completed book. I have several others started but not completed. I had an issue with writing out and solving the plot in my first few. I never wrote out an outline for them, I just started writing and took off with it.
3) Why did you choose young adult as genre for your book? 
     We should be aware that Surviving is not younger readers, I want to make that clear. Young adults yes – adults. I’m stating this because I’m afraid a younger person will get it and possibly take it the wrong way. I am only in my twenties and I relate to this age group very well. I suppose I write what I know or how I feel and it is stuck right into this age group. 
4) Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?
Read.     Learn your craft.     Keep learning.      Never give up.
5. Do you have any works in progress you’d like to tell us about?
     My current project is a romance novel without a working title (so far!). Unfortunately I can’t reveal anything other than that. I can say that I hope to write a follow-up to Surviving after I finish my current project. It will be based on Landon’s story, whereas Surviving is Jenna’s story.
Thanks for having me! 🙂

Author Bio

J.L. Sprague loves dark chocolate covered almonds and her life is pretty much one big dark chocolate covered almond, sweet on the outside and crunchy goodness on the inside. Family takes up the biggest portion of her day and book boyfriends take up the other portion. If she can’t find a good book boyfriend, then she just creates one and the writing portion of her day begins.

Outside of family, reading, writing and eating dark chocolate covered almonds, J.L. Sprague loves music and the outdoors. She studied Music Education in college, then changed her mind after three very long years to study Criminal Justice. Finally, after studying and studying she realized that reading and writing were more her forte. After starting her family with her crazy, supportive husband, she started doing what she loved, writing.

SURVIVING is J.L. Sprague’s first novel but it’s not her last. She has some very interesting ideas that you may love or hate. Whether you love or hate her stories, through all the twists and turns, there will always be a happily ever after.
