Welcome to Bookin' It Reviews Ms. James!

Dreams come true…

Have you ever had that feeling that what you are doing right now, the job or career that you’re currently work at is not what you were meant to do? Well that is how I felt last year. I knew that I wanted to be a writer.

I never had that lifelong dream of becoming a writer but I always wrote. A few years back I began researching into the traditional publishing route, I thought hey, I had all of these stories written I might as well do something with them. I became discouraged after I figured out my odds of being signed with the big six and let that thought lay dormant until last year. It wasn’t until I purchased my Kindle that I found a new way to publish. I fell in love with Indie Authors and knew I could become one of them. I reviewed all of the old stuff I wrote and dismissed it all and quickly began to type a new story with characters that wouldn’t shut up. I typed and typed for days, weeks, and months until my fingers hurt, my eye were watery, and the story was done. Of course, there were some technical aspects along the way… editors, book covers, more editors, etc. But a year later, my dream has come true. My book Fate’s Design was published on March 27, 2012! Was it easy? No, but it has been worth it.

Fate’s Design wasn’t even my first book published. Back in late October 2011, I published another book named, Bound to Remember. The funny thing about writing is sometime the story that you start isn’t always the first one published but that’s another story for another blog post.

Now, let me tell you a little about Fate’s Design… I am a big believer in fate. I always say that everything happens for a reason no matter what it may be… In Fate’s Design, Megan the main character is a dreamer, but her dreams are more nightmarish that fun and cutesy. Morgan her twin sister is a fun-live- in-the- moment kind of girl. Well, the problem is Megan’s dreams start coming true and scarier while on an Italian vacation and one in the form of a handsome stranger. He hopes for more than a fateful meet and greet…and Megan hopes he isn’t a beautiful nightmare… I will leave you with that and hopes you buy it read it and love it!
Thanks for having me on Bookin it Reviews!

Back Of The Book:
A summer vacation in Italy with her twin sister, Morgan, is just what Megan Romano needs. But instead of fun, wine, and relaxation, she finds unexpected romance. Alexander DiPiero, a sexy and mysterious Italian businessman, falls for Megan the minute he lays eyes on her, but Megan knows it’s too good to be true.

Increasingly haunting dreams that warn of danger and destiny plague Megan’s every sleeping moment. As her nightmares become deadly and her love life heats up, Megan will come face to face with her worst fear.

About the Author:
Lola James lives in southern California and is married with three beautiful children. She currently has a day job as a HR Manager but hopes to pursue her dream as a full-time writer. Somehow, in between working full-time, being a full-time mom and wife she moonlights as an author.

Having always loved to read she understands readers and writers share the common love of a great story. Anything dealing with Vampires, Witches, and Greek Mythology, she loves. Mostly of her books are Paranormal Romance with suspense and a little humor, but she’s not limiting herself to just that. All of the stories emanate from her wild imagination and the fact that she is a hopeless romantic.

After some extensive research into the publishing process, she became discouraged and put her laptop down and dreams on hold. It wasn’t until she bought her eReader that she discovered a new way to publish. And she did self-published her first book, Bound to Remember.
