Interview with Annie woods the author of Angel heart Saga!

Meet Annie woods! Annie is the author of the series named The Angelheart Saga. She has published her first book First Came Forever in 2017 and her second book Forever Disguised is releasing tomorrow. Her first book First Came Forever is everyone’s favourite!

Since her second book Forever Disguised is out today! I thought let’s interview her

 

 

 

1. Hi Annie how are you?

 

I’m great, thank you so much Jasleen! Thank you for being part of the Forever Disguised Blog Tour. I’m so excited for the release of the second book in The Angelheart Saga tomorrow and so much looking forward to sharing the story with you all! But also a bit nervous… Having your book published is a bit like sending your child off to school for the first time.

 

2. Who are some of your favourite writers & writers that have influenced you?

 

Oh, there are so many amazing authors out there! I love YA authors like Becky Albertalli, Rainbow Rowell, Mackenzi Lee, Marie Lu and Cassandra Clare. I also have to mention Stephenie Meyer, since the Twilight series was the series that really opened up my eyes for the YA genre, even though I’m not sure that I would love the series quite as much if I reread it now.

 

But if I have to choose one author, it would have to be J.K. Rowling, for the way she created a whole universe on her own and all the characters that you love and carry with you in your heart forever. With Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling has also helped so many troubled and lonely children, giving them hope and bringing them joy, it’s utterly amazing. There’s even a research study proving that the Harry Potter books help children to be more accepting of LGBT persons, so the books are literally making the world a better place!

 

3. What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

 

I’m having another full-time job besides being an author, so this means that I don’t have much of a writing schedule… It’s more that I just have to try and write whenever I can between work and being with my family. I guess that you could call me a “nocturnal airplane writer” as I do most of my writing when the rest of the family is asleep or on the flight between our two homes in Stockholm and New York.

 

4. Where is your favourite place to write?

 

Often the ideas to my books pop up when I’m out running and then I stop to write notes on my iPhone, so I remember the ideas and can write them down in the evening. I write at my desk or in bed, or on the Stockholm-NYC flight. My favorite place to write is my desk, but I’d so much like to do it more during daytime, when it’s light outside and I can enjoy the beautiful views from my window. Right now it’s mostly dark outside when I sit here and write…

 

5. How did you come up with the idea of Angelheart Saga? Knowing that it’s based on your story, how comfortable were with the fact that you are going to write your own story and publish it?

 

The image of Erica and how she moved to US for love came to me on a vacation in California over four years ago. Driving along Highway 1 the plot and the other characters crystalized; how she meets Sasha and falls heads over heels in love with him, but how difficult even such a strong love can be when reality hits with their different worlds. I immediately felt that this story was so strong that I just couldn’t let it go but had to try and write it down. The title First Came Forever came quite quickly too and I soon realized that I wanted to do this as a kind of backward love story, starting with the fairytale love instead of getting Prince Charming as the end game, but showing how hard it is to get fairytale love to work in real life.

 

Many of the places and characters are based on my own experiences or events from my life. I really love Cambodia and Vietnam, and I’ve done a lot of travelling all over Asia, which I hope shows in the books. And I have to admit that Erica is very much based on myself. But, as an author’s privilege, she is a bit smarter and better looking lol… But besides that, she’s just like me; clumsy, a bookworm, something of “an old soul”, feeling out of step with her same age friends and being too serious for her own good at times, a kind of bad driver, but a great runner finding peace and quiet and respite from all demands out in the woods with her running shoes on. At first, it felt a bit strange to share so much from my own life and experience, but on the other hand, there is also a lot in the books that are completely made-up, so it’s a good mix I think. I sometimes feel a bit dishonest for using a pen name and not telling everyone who “the real me” is, but that would make it more obvious which parts of the books that are based on my own life, so I think it’s better this way. It leaves it more up to the readers to create their own image of Erica and Sasha and the other characters and places in the books.

 

 

6. Does your writing energise or exhaust you?

 

The thought that there are people out there reading my work and falling in love with and caring about the characters I’ve created is just overwhelming! It’s such an amazing thing to share your story with others, and getting positive feedback is just magic! I love the book community and all the wonderful contacts; I’ve gotten so much love and support and encouragement, it’s just unbelievable! And I’ve really found some amazing friends via my books (like yourself Jasleen!), that constantly encourages me and make me smile with the lovely comments and thoughts about the books. So in that way the writing is definitely a source of positive energy!

 

Sometimes though, it can be a bit too much, with everything else going on in life, working full time and finding time for the family and writing… But then I try to tell myself that I write because I love it and because I too want to find out what will happen to all the characters in the series and then I get my energy back again.

 

 

7. How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?

 

Besides finding so many new amazing friends and getting so much positive energy from it and the challenges to learn new things, my life hasn’t changed that much in practice though by getting the book published. I still have the same full-time job as before, and have to keep writing in the small moments I can find the time, so it’s still not much of a process…

 

 

8. How can we purchase your book?

 

You can buy it directly from my publisher, Pegasus, or via all major online stores like Amazon and Book Depository:

Thank you so much Annie! It was lovely chatting with you.

 

Oh, thank you, Jasleen, the honor is all mine!
