Dark Tales Diaries by London Saint James


Hi London, I’m really pleased to have you on my blog! It’s always interesting to meet fellow authors and learn how they “work”. So while you’re here, I’d love to ask you a few questions.

Let’s start with where your ideas come from?

My inspiration comes from many different sources. Music, a place I’ve been, artwork, conversations I’ve had, even dreams…

How cool, so what kind of writer does that make you?

I’m not really a writer who outlines plots. I’m a panster. I go where the characters tell me to. 

How do you balance life and writing?

Balance. Hmm. What’s that? LOL. I haven’t achieved structure or balance in my writing habits, and many times the busy dealings of life gets in the way of my writing time. I don’t allot any certain amount of time to write. If I did that, keeping a tight daily schedule, it would seem odd. I tend to write, more often than not, at willy-nilly times and live my life as it comes. *Smiles*

I know exactly how that is! What drives you to write?

The love of it. I love to lose myself in the worlds I create. I love to write, and it really is that simple.

Tell us about the experience of writing the Dark Tales Diaries.

I had so much fun writing Dark Tales Diaries and that experience continues as I am starting to work on book three. This BDSM series of short stories sparked from a casual conversation with the love of my life. Two words, “Dark Tales,” poked at me. From there, I sat down and typed non-stop. Dark Tales Diaries: Volume 1 and the life of Tristan Blackthorn spilled out upon the “pages” of my laptop.

It’s so awesome when that happens. What is your favorite thing about writing?

The creative process and the freedom to let my imagination run wild.

And your least favorite?

Reading bad reviews. But reviews are all subjective. What one person hates, someone else might love.

Definitely. Tell us about one of your own writing quirks.

I can’t sit at a proper desk when I write. That drives me crazy.

I’ll work anywhere, as long as I have a minute to myself… As an author, what scares you the most?

Death and taxes! *Giggles*

Okay, let me think about that question a second…

I’m not sure I’d call it being scared, more like a concern that I can keep my stories new and interesting. Just being able to stay relevant in the world of romance writers, I suppose.

Which authors most influenced your writing?

I can’t say that my writing has been influenced by other authors, because I tend to write like I write (how I feel comfortable writing) but I do have several authors that I like to read and think their writing style and imaginations are pretty awesome. Here’s just a few; Megan Hart, Sherrilyn  Kenyon, Charlaine Harris, Gena Showalter, Sarah McCarty, Julia London. A whole bunch of fellow authors from my publishers. I could go on and on, and on.

So cool! And what’s next for London Saint James?

March 17th I have a new release coming from Roane Publishing. My story, The Shamrock Incident will be part of their For the Love of Murphy anthology. It is a sweet romance based around bad luck (Murphy’s Law).

I also have several WIP’s I’m working on and a few deadline projects that are keeping me fairly busy writing.

Good luck with all of that. Last but not least, who’s your biggest fan?

My sexy man. He’s always been my number one fan. *Smiles*

Thanks for stopping by!
