'Gravitational Pull' by Marissa Carmel, will cerainly pull you in her direction
Marissa Carmel has been kind enough to meet with us and tell us about her latest novel, ‘Gravitational Pull,’ which was just released today.
Tell us the title of your book and a brief description of what the book is about.'Gravitational Pull' is the sequel to 'iFeel.' It is about an empathy, (someone who can feel the emotions of others), Liv, who discovers her new powers, and finds out about her ancient bloodline. In the meantime, while all of this is going on, she is dealing with the newlove in her life, an angel named Justice. It’s a new adult paranormal series, so the themes are more mature than young adult, but there is still intense emotion, suspense and humor.
That sounds exciting. Is this your debut novel or do you have previous works? I have one previous work; it is book one in the ‘Vis Vires Trilogy,' called ‘iFeel.’
What are you working on now? Presently, I’m working on a spin off novella of the 'Vis Vires Trilogy' from Justice’s point of view. It will give more of a back-story to the seraphs.
Do you have any writing rituals? I only have a few writing rituals to speak of. Coffee, music and cracking my knuckles.
Do you have a muse? Is there someone special who inspires your craft? I think I have a lot of muses. The people in my life are so rich in character that it’s easy to draw inspiration from them. My editor also inspires me. He’s where the novella idea came from.
How does the social media influence your writing? Is it a hindrance or a blessing? Both. Sometimes I can’t pull myself away from networking or promoting, but on the flip side I meet so many wonderful people. I guess it depends on the day.
Are you a plotter or a pantser? How long does it take you to write a book? I think a little bit of both. I try to write a synopsis before I start the official work. I write an outline also, but I allow for changes. I think the combination makes for the most interesting plot twists.
Sounds to me like you are more of a planner. I wish I could plan, even a little. Personally, I am a pantser. My characters do all the planning for me. What is the hardest part about the writing process for you? The hardest part about the writing process for me is editing and time management. I prefer the creative side of my craft.
Yes, editing can take up quite a bit of a writer’s time. Thanks so much for telling my readers about your new release. Please tell us where they can find more information on you and your books. All my links are here. My Pinterest page is my favorite. I love visuals.
