ℚ Daniel, Ever After: With Love [2] - Alexa Randolph

Today we have the pleasure of meeting up with author to talk about her romance series, With Love; Daniel, Ever After (, Alexa Randolph, 416 pages), is book two in the series.

With Love, Ella  (the first instalment  in the With Love series) "is a fun book to get into! There are so many great characters, many who are Ella’s family. The love and support among them is developed in a variety of special ways. The author lovingly presents a love story for the ages. Family support, team work and community are key to this novel." ~ Amazon Verified Purchase Reviewer

A very warm welcome to Alexa Randolph; thank you for joining us on BooksChatter!

What was the inspiration for the With Love series?

"I get this question a lot and it always takes me a few minutes to answer because the ideas behind the book, characters and scenes just came to me while I was home on a break from school.  I think as I continued to write and edit, I realized a lot of the inspiration came from the people I knew."
How much of yourself is reflected in the first book, With Love, Ella, and how?
"The main character Ella is an Event Planner and it had been my dream for so many years and even came true for about 6 months.  I think Ella is partly like me, but also how I wished at one point I could be.  She has some of my favorite food and drinks."
The first thing that draws me to a book is its cover. Can you tell us about your cover for the With Love series - why you chose that concept and who the artist is.
"For the first book it is a house on the beach with the title written in sand and pink rose petals.  It is the Hamptons and it is pink rose petals as that is Ella’s favorite flower and Daniel proposed on the beach. A lot of the book takes place in the Hamptons. - A friend did this first one.

For Daniel, Ever After I decided to have him as the main part since it is mostly his story. There two girls on the bottom.  One is more shadowed being Ella and the other one is Molly who is introduced in this book.  I found a graphic artist that did a few of my favorite books."
Why should we read the With Love series and what sets it apart from the rest?  What makes your series unique?
"I think that readers should read this series because it’s a journey of a love of epic proportions and you reach every emotion possible.  I certainly did as I was writing it.

I think With Love, Ella is a unique book because for the first book they are already in a relationship, but it’s still a journey regardless of if they started dating right away or if the whole book is how they met and got together."
Can you tell us something quirky about the With Love series, its story and characters?
"I have always loved the name Ella and I want my daughter to be named Ella, so I decided to use it in the book.  I also bought an Ella hair tie because she felt like a part of me and I wanted something of hers."
Who would you recommend the With Love series to and what should readers be aware of (any warnings or disclaimers)?
"I would say 16- 30 females.  It is a sweet love story with just a bit swearing, but no sex."
If you could / wished to turn With Love, Ella and the With Love series into a movie, who would be your dream team?
"I would love to have Zac Efron, Alex Pettyfer, or Liam Hemsworth for Daniel and Alexandra Daddario, Anna Kendrick, or Jessica Lowndes as Ella.

Zac Efron Alex Pettyfer Liam Hemsworth
Alexandra Daddario Anna Kendrick Jessica Lowndes
I would love to have it in New York."

What do you like to write and read about? Do you stick to a particular genre or do you like to explore different ones?
"I love to write about love and romance.  I usually stick to romance or women’s fiction because I know it best and that is what I read."
What is your writing process?
"I start by outlining everything from characters to setting and each chapter.  Then I start writing chapter by chapter."
What is in store next?
"I am currently blogging, podcasting and speaking.  I have one novel semi in the works."
Thank you for sharing, Alexa; we hope you are having a great tour!
