Immortal Rapture Series #MustReads #ParanormalRomance @lilian3roberts

Immortal Rapture Series #MustReads #ParanormalRomance @lilian3roberts

Originally published via ExpatsPost.com, October 14, 2014

Lilian Roberts joined us on Expats a few weeks ago with her Arielle Immortal Journey, Book 5 in The Immortal Rapture Series. Today, I would like to welcome her back so that she can share some insights into the series as she releases Book 6 in the series – Arielle Immortal Fury. As October fades into November, what better time to curl up with a good fantasy, romance novel, right? Her timing is perfect! Lilian lives in Atlanta and, even with her hectic schedule, she took the time to have a cup of coffee and answer a few of my questions. Let’s take a look into the creative process this best selling romance author.

Lilian Roberts


The Writing Process:

Introduce yourself to our readers in 100 words or less.

I am a corporate engineer, wife and mother. I live in Atlanta, Georgia with my husband and my golden retriever. I am an avid reader and love to read novels that feature characters draped in passion, mystery, and adventure. I am especially fascinated with the concept of immortality.

How long have you been a published author?

4 years

Do you write in one particular genre, or explore a variety of stories?

I write Paranormal / Romance

Where do you get the ideas for your stories?

I love romance and I create a character or two and from there a story develops.

What is your writing process?

I write very late at night while everyone is asleep. I find that time to be the most creative one for me.

How much/often do you write?

Every day a page or two.

Do you have readers or betas who critique your work before you submit for publication?

I have an editor a proofreader and my publicist.

Why do or why don’t you think this is important?

It is important to make sure your book is clean of errors before it is published. The readers are very smart and they catch everything that everyone else missed.

Arielle Immortal Fury, Book 6
The Immortal Rapture Series


The Road to Publication:

How long have you been openly pursuing writing as a career?

5 years

Do you have an agent?

Yes I have an agent

If yes, how did you go about finding them?

It was totally coincidental. We met on Facebook and became friends. She is an author as well and my book manager.

Everything happens on social media, doen’t it? What do you perceive as the benefits to having an agent?

It is hard for an author to write and also worry about marketing their book. An agent has been in the marketing game for a long time and they know they best ways to make sure that your book is out there and your sales are increasing as the time goes by.

Your new release, Book 6, is part of a fantastic romantic fantasy series, The Immortal Rapture Series. Please tell us a bit about these books

It is a romantic fantasy adventure series for young adults and older. It has everything you could imagine that might enthrall a reader. That includes passion and romance, stunning trappings of glamour and wealth, as well fabulous settings, both contemporary and historical. There’s plenty of intrigue, ancient secrets, super powers, a cast of beautiful people and other interesting characters. At the center of the story, is Arielle, a very special college coed facing fantastical revelations at every turn. At her side is her perfect man, Sebastian, who is no ordinary prince charming. In tart, that’s because he’s immortal, but handsome and rich and a nice guy, too. They can’t get enough of each other, caught up in a love that captivates: body, mind and soul. Part of a close-knit group of friends, many of them have been through a lot together through out the books. Those friendships are almost as integral to the story as the love affair between Arielle and Sebastian. That’s a good thing, too, since there are mysterious forces aligning against them, ruthless villains, and plots afoot.

Are you self-published or do you have a traditional publisher?

I have a contract with a publishing company out of Seattle Washington “Booktrope”

Why did you make that choice?

It was very hard to handle a series of 8 books on my own. Plus the expenses were enormous. Editors, proofreaders, blurb writers, formatting company, and marketing. Booktrope has assigned a team of people that make sure my books are edited, proofread, formatted and marketed correctly. They make sure my covers are designed by expert designers to make the book more appealing. Booktrope has made my life a lot easier and I now can concentrate in writing.

If you could have any job (besides being a writer), what profession would you choose?

From a young girl I wanted to be an engineer and I became that before I started to write and became a published author.

What’s next for Author Lilian Roberts?

I am working on a historical Romance about the British Regency.

Anything you’d like to add or that we should know about you?

Writing has become a passion larger than I thought it could ever be.

Thank you Lilian. Your journey into publishing is truly inspiring. I love the way you have worked to develop your writing, and along the way so many magical meetings and events have coincided. Your story is full of magic and synchronicity. Here’s the blurb for Arielle Immortal Fury, her latest release.

Arielle Immortal Fury

A memory of love…

On her return to the present from a time-travel journey to sixteenth-century Calais, France, college co-ed Arielle Lloyd anticipates a joyful welcome from her immortal fiancĂ©, Sebastian Gaulle. She is stunned to discover that he doesn’t remember their time together there and wonders, has she lost him forever?

Danger from afar…

As Sebastian tries to shake loose his disturbing memories and solve the enigma of Arielle’s haunting eyes, the Russian Mafia ups the stakes in their deadly game to steal crucial documents from his company. Then an envelope arrives with photos of Arielle. The message is clear: if Sebastian fails to meet their demands, his love will pay the price with her life.

A love across all time…

Sebastian and his associates join forces with Interpol in a race to thwart the Russians’ plans. In the global battle, the Russians have made a serious mistake. They have threatened the beloved of an indestructible immortal, a woman Sebastian only now realizes he has loved across the centuries.

Cover by Robin Ludwig Design Inc.

The most difficult good byes are the ones you never get to say.

September First is the prequel to the best-selling literary romance September Ends, twelve hours of life lived on the edge of insanity, where creative talent is a Janus-faced blessing.

Twelve short, intense hours in the lives of English Poets, Jack O. Savage and Indie Shadwick, ending in a passionate culmination. "Live to love and love to live, Jack" says Indie, a genius trapped in a bi-polar world of dysfunction. The love of her life is Jack O Savage, adored by millions. Will her violent jealousy ruin everything? Indie Shadwick inspires her lover to storm the world with his creations, but all he wants is a life with chickens and children. The poems ruin everything by clamoring, begging her to give them form. Something must give. The shadow of psychosis stalks her mind but can Jack's love save her in the end?
