For this blog tour, we have an interview with Molly Snow, the author of Royally BeSwitched.
What was the hardest thing about writing this book?
The research. Since it takes place in 1730 I had to study fashions, certain terms, the setting up of kingdoms and more. I took some fictional liberties in some areas, but always made sure to have a certain explanation for them to make sense to the reader who is really knowledgeable history-wise.
Which of your characters can you relate to the most?
I think I feel the most for Surla the cat. She seems to have my sensibilities and likes and dislikes (to an extent). I really feel for her as she has fallen in love with her human crush, Jax. And, I agree with her that he is pretty hot stuff... I mean, he already knew how to sword fight before going back in time :) And I am in love with his hair.
Which part of the book was the easiest to write?
There are times as an author when I get into what I call "The Zone." It comes unexpectedly. I feel like I am one with the book and the words are flowing. That happened a few times during Royally BeSwitched. It is my belief that when I am in that zone, those scenes end up being the best. One time it happened during a sword fight where Jax takes on a giant in an arena, again it happened with Jax fighting black magic, and another time when Surla is thinking about her desires for Jax. Although the book is about getting Jax's predecessors to fall in love again, the plot is also heavy with Jax and Surla's personal journey.

Which songs would be on the soundtrack of the movie version of the book?

I'm working on a 4th book in the series. We'll see how it comes out and if it will be the final book in the series ;)
