Affaire de Coeur's
July Calendar Girl
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Eve Langlais is a Canadian author who loves to write. Her twisted imagination and sarcastic sense of humor tend to heavily influence her stories. While she might not always know what her mind is going to come up with next, it will probably have lots of romance because she believes in a happily ever after.
When you write, do you outline first, or are you a pantser?
Pantser! I kind of let the characters guide me so that I get the same wonder of surprise and excitement a reader does.
What type of characters do you like to create?
All kinds, lol. Being a prolific author, I’ve crafted all types from the heroine who is timid to kickass, big and small, although, many of my heroes do tend to have alpha tendencies—and pretty hot physiques.
Tell us about your new book or series.
I am so excited about the Chimera Secrets series that started releasing in June. Five books in total, following a different couple each time with a big story arc to keep you intrigued. Plenty of action, thrills and chills, plus best of all five happily, ever afters. The idea in a nutshell is a secret lab experimenting on humans, making them into monsters. But what if those monsters revolt and in the process find love?
What motivates you for a perfect writing day?
LOL, less motivation and more focus. I take the job of writing very seriously and have set hours Monday to Friday where I sit my butt down and get the story from my head to the computer.
How/where do you get your plot ideas?
Anything can inspire me from a song to a news clip, and most of all my imagination combined with the ‘what if’ factor.
What is the most difficult thing about creating and developing characters?
Ensuring their distinct voice shines and making them believable. Every character has a back story that drives their reasoning and conveying it to the reader can be tricky.
What is your favorite thing about being an author?
The stories! I love that I finally have a use for my over active imagination, lol.
How many books do you currently have out on the market and what genres do they fall into?
A lot. Over a hundred, primarily romance, then sub categorized into paranormal, with a sprinkling of sci-fi and romantic suspense.
Will you be attending any book signings or conventions?
Yes! I love face to face time with readers. I have Romancing the Capital in August, in Ottawa, Canada. RARE in September in London, UK. And most recently, Coastal Magic coming this February in Daytona Beach. The event page on my website has more info for those interested.
Pass on some words of wisdom, please, to aspiring authors.
Finish it. It’s not a book until you write the end.
