C.L. De Leon is the author of The Genesis Project: Prophecy of the Seven. A self proclaimed obsessive reader, she tells us about her new book and who inspires her as a writer.
1. Tell us briefly about your book?
The Genesis Project Prophecy of the Seven in my opinion is an apocalyptic (dystopian) book with romances brewing... If I had to relate it to a T.V. show or a movie I would say Revolution, Defiance, X-men and Hero's.
TGPPOFS is set in present times where a militia of gifted or people with abilities rises up and over throws our government and set in it's place a monarchy who then hunt down those who were prophesied to generations ago to bring them down and rise instead. This prophecy is based on seven characters, all very important but one of them is more important than the rest. With out her they have no hope of winning, no hope of living. The entire world will fall into a darkness and there won't be a way out.
2. Where did the idea come from?
Honestly, I was sick and had a super high fever (should have went to the E.R.) and had this dream like movie pop into my fever addled mind. LOL and thus the book was born.
3. What is your favourite genre and why?
Fantasy anything. Romance, High, Low, Middle. I LOVE fantasy. When I was a kid I went through some really rough stuff and my books (fantasy) were my escape from the crazy that was in my life, books were the only consistent thing I had in my life until I was 19.
4. What writers inspire you?
A lot! The one's I feel have influenced me the most are: R.A. Salvatore
George R.R. Martain
K Anne Raines
5. What's next for you in your writing?
I'm currently working on book two which is more adult, sexual scenes and violence...you're really going to begin to see and understand the type of world that these characters are living in, and understand their ways and wants.
