Lightning Kissed Blog Tour: Interview with Lila Felix PLUS Giveaway!

Today we're chatting with author Lila Felix about her book LIGHTNING KISSED. Come get to know more about this young adult paranormal romance, and don't forget to enter the rafflecopter at the end of the post. But first, a little info on Lila.

Lila Felix is full of antics and stories. She refused to go to Kindergarten after the teacher made her take a nap on the first day of school. She staged her first protest in middle school. She almost flunked out of her first semester at Pepperdine University because she was enthralled with their library and frequently was locked in. Now her husband and three children have to put up with her rebel nature in Louisiana where her days are filled with cypress trees, crawfish, and of course her books and writing. She writes about the ordinary people who fall extraordinarily in wild, true love.

Hi, Lila! Welcome to We Do Write.Tell our readers a bit about LIGHTNING KISSED.

Lightning Kissed is a story that’s been brewing in my mind for some time. Whenever someone would ask me the question about what superpower I would like to have, I have always answered, ‘Teleporting’. So, this is my tribute to that wish.

Colby Evans can leap from one country to the next in a heartbeat. She can see every sunset in every time zone in the same day. She can travel across the world in a flash. She defies gravity and physics with every breath she takes. She’s tested her abilities and found them limitless.
She is the lightning. She is Lucent. And nothing can stop her.

Except him.

Theodore Ramsey isn’t supposed to be able to flash like Colby. The power of travel is passed on from mother to daughter in their people. Except once in every hundred generations.

Theo is the one.

He can flash like Colby. And it makes him a target to their enemies and to himself. His abilities change everything he knows about life and throws his future into an uncertain tangent. In fact, the only thing certain in his life is the love he feels for Colby.

Their love defies time and space and has been the only constant thing in their lives since childhood. But even their infallible love will be stretched to its limits.

She will risk her life to protect him. But he will risk everything to protect them all.

How did the idea of the story come to you?

I had a dream about the characters asking me to travel with them.

Are you a plotter or a pantser?

I’m a mix of both! For my paranormal romances, I always plot. For my contemporaries, I rarely plot, but I know the main story and how it ends. The rest is pure pantsing.

What’s the hardest part of writing for you?

Having to stop to eat and sleep—trivial things.

What do you absolutely have to have nearby when writing?

I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t have to have anything around me to write. I’ve written in my car with just a pen and paper. I’ve written in a hospital room with a laptop. I’ve written in my bed on my iPad. If there’s some kind of writing utensil around, I can write.

Tell us why teleporting would be the super power you would choose.

Seriously, travelling the world without the cost and hassle of airplanes and trains? No contest.

What's the weirdest thing you've googled?

Oh boy…I’ve Googled some weird stuff. For Lightning Kissed, it was a pleasure to google all the places around the world that they visited.

Finish this sentence: If I'm not writing, I'm probably ...

reading or lately, hiking.

Here’s the part where you thank the people who are supporting you. Let's hear your shout outs.

There are too many shout outs to count! I’m so afraid I’ll forget someone! First of all, my sweet husband who doesn’t bat an eye anymore at my antics. And trust me, there are plenty of them.

My Rink Rats! This is the best damned street team on the planet. We are more of a community and they are just the best.

Also, I can’t forget the amazing team at Clean Teen Publishing. They are professional and always have my back. Love those girls.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!

Thanks for having me! I’m so grateful.
