Hi Randi and welcome back to my blog!
Firstly can you tell us about yourself, for my readers that haven't met you before? Hi. I’m Randi Cooley Wilson the author of The Revelation Series, which includes my debut novel, Revelation and the sequel Restraint. I just moved back to Massachusetts after living in Southern California for about fifteen-years. I love dark chocolate and wine. Oh, and my favorite color is yellow. Which I know is odd since I write about dark fantasy worlds - lol.
How long have you been writing? Since childhood really. I became serious about writing in college and then really started to focus on it (more than just a hobby) about five years ago.
What inspired you to start writing novels for your chosen genre? A few years back, I had read what felt like every single story there was out there within the paranormal genre (which is my absolute favorite). As a reader, I was craving something different with new worlds, unknown characters and bad guys that I had not ever been introduced to previously. So I tied in my love for architecture and romance and created The Revelation Series.
What motivates and inspires you to write? I love to write. It’s truly like breathing for me. Writing allows me a creative outlet that simply calms my mind. I force myself to sit down each evening and write something. Whether I keep what I have written or not, I do make sure to try and get something down on paper each day.
Can you offer any advice to the fledgling authors, just starting out? As a reader, turned author, the only advice I could offer is to take the plunge. As long as you write a story you love, then it’s worth it.
How do you come up with the Titles for your novels? In my world, book titles are dictated by the content of the novel. For instance, Revelation, book one, has two meanings: a surprising and previously unknown fact, especially one that is made known in a dramatic way and the divine or supernatural disclosure to humans of something relating to human existence or the world. Since the entire book was about shocking facts being made known in a dramatic way, as well as a divine disclosure to humans then it just seemed fitting.
What is your preferred method of writing:- The plot pre-planned from day one, or just go with the flow and see what happens next? I normally start as a plotter and have a general arc that the series is following. I’ve also written the first and last chapters to each book already, including basic outlines. That said, I never follow them. As I write, I become a total pantser. Part of the fun for me is being surprised by my characters and where they want the story to go. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t.
Do you have any input in the Cover design of your novel? I do, and think it is so important that authors have a voice for their cover designs. A cover is the visual first impression a reader gets of your book. For Restraint, I worked hand-in-hand with Bravebird Publishing to create, what I think is, a stunning cover.
How many novels/books do you typically read in a month? I am an avid reader. I normally read between 2-3 books per month depending on my schedule.
What is your favourite genre to read at the moment? Contemporary Romance. Currently, I’m obsessed with The Stage Dive Series by Kylie Scott. I also have a total author crush on Jay Crownover and her Marked Men and Point Series.
Which of the following suits you best?
- Thrill Seeker
- Mildly Meek
- Totally Chilled
- All of the above
Are you a:
- Laptop Writer
- Desktop Writer
- iPad Writer
- Pen and Paper Writer
If you had a choice – a dream come true - which would be your preference: Your books serialised - a weekly show or made into movies? Truly, I would love any of the above, but definitely made into movies.
Thanks so much for having me!
