For the next installment of Inkitt’s author Q&A sessions, we chatted to JMFelic! JMFelic is an avid writer and writes romance, supernatural and fantasy stories. Her story, Undressed by the King, is published on Inkitt’s sister app, Galatea.
So, let’s dive straight in!
What is the most surprising thing you discovered while writing Undressed by the King?
When I realized I could actually make my own language. My readers loved it and some of them even used those new words in their school and work. It’s humbling.
What was the inspiration for the story?
To make a story loaded with fantasy, adventure and heart-wrenching romance that readers can really be immersed in.
If you were to write a book about yourself, what would you name it?
Divine Intervention. That is because I feel like every day of my life I am guided and blessed by a Higher Being.
If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?
A Rose in Winter by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. This book introduced me to the world of writing. Ms. Kathleen’s story really inspired me in creating my own romance novels.
How do you get/stay in a creative mood?
I always considered myself to be a very talented person. I can sing, dance, act, draw, paint, sculpt and many more. My creativity is limitless with or without any internal or external factors to affect it.
How do you remain productive/motivated?
Before I start a project/book, I envision the ending output. The rewards I will receive from that output keep me productive/motivated.
What’s your favorite thing about being an author?
I get to surprise my readers and make them feel all kinds of different emotions. I get to make my readers cry – in a good way that is.
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
A pillow. I value good sleep.
On Saturdays, I like to…
Just relax and unwind, or maybe create a chapter or two of my current book, The Alpha King’s Claim. You should read it on Inkitt, my dears. You won’t be sleeping anytime soon once you start it.
What is one of your favorite reader reviews on Galatea?
I saw one reader review by Jae Seul on Galatea that really made me validate the awesomeness of Undressed by the King and it went like this:
“To whoever wrote ‘Undressed by the King,’
Damn, you really went for the whole Fantasy and Sci-Fi genre there. A full goddamn conspiracy and a full range of characteristics without disregarding historical tactics and the point of a romantic story. And creating a brand new world of yours.
Waiting for the next season.
Proud of ya.”
And this review ended with a heart and a peace sign – something that I really value.
