Interview with Natalie-Nicole Bates

Holly: Hi Natalie-Nicole! Would you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: I was born in Russia, and currently live in the United Kindon. I began as a voracious reader, and moved on to book reviewing. I am now happily an author.

Holly: When did you realize that you would like to write and publish a book?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: I've always been interested in writing. I think I wrote my first play when I was about eleven years old. Thoughts of publication only came to me within the last two years.

Holly: Your life is a contemporary romance novel; how do your meet the love of your life?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: In a vintage bookstore, browsing the shelves on a rainy October afternoon.

Holly: Can you tell us a little bit about your book Antique Charming?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: Antique Charming is a short paranormal romance set in a flat above a funeral home. The new owner, Lizzie, is visited one night by a strange man who claims to still own the funeral home.

Holly: Which came first for you, the characters or the plot?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: The characters

Holly: What was the inspiration for this novel?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: A Victorian era photograph from my collection that has the front of a funeral home with a very handsome name standing in front with his hands clasped together. On the back of the photo in very elegant script, it reads 'week of October-11-1896.

Holly: Where can we purchase Antique Charming?

Natalie-Nicole Bates:

Holly: Can we expect more novels from you in 2012?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: See Me, a paranormal romance, will be available in the future from Leap of Faith Publishing

Holly: Are you working on anything at the moment?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: A new paranormal, and an erotic romance

Holly: Can you tell us a little about your first publishing experience?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: I was very lucky. The week I was offered a contract on my contemporary romance, Change of Address, I was offered contract on my short paranormal, Antique Charming. Although Antique Charming was contracted second, it was released first.

I'm currently writing in both contemporary and paranormal, but I do have a keen interest in horror.

Holly: How much of you or people you know do you think make it into the characters in your novel(s)?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: Oh, there's lots of me in my characters. I also incorporate a lot of what people say in off the cuff conversations. You never know if something you say to me might end up in one of my books.

Holly: Who or what influenced your writing once you began?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: I come from a long line of folks in the funeral care business. I find it a very interesting influence in my writing as well as Victorian-era photography.

Holly: Is this the first novel you ever wrote or just the first published?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: I was very lucky to be contracted for the first novel I ever wrote, which is Change of Address. I'm very blessed.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: I am fairly new to the world of writing, but I hope that I present a unique style in my writing that you won't find elsewhere.

Holly: Your life is a horror novel; how do you save the day from the bad guys?

Natalie-Nicole Bates: They are helplessly attracted to the magnetism of my smouldering brown eyes--I then disintegrate them into a pile of ashes with said eyes
