It’s been a while now since I got an ARC of Roller Girl, the third book in a series called Lake Lovelace, and had a pleasant surprise when I realized this was a great F/F adult book with steamy times and a nice found family vibe related to sports. Today, I chatted with the author, Vanessa North, and got some interesting answers about her research and even about a new F/F story coming soon to share with readers!
Q1: Roller Girl was the first F/F book in the Lake Lovelace series. How did you feel making this transition?
I don’t think it was a difficult transition at all for me as a writer–Tina was an integral part of the Lake Lovelace community from the first book, and her story was plotted concurrently with the second book, so it was really just a matter of figuring out her character’s vulnerabilities and strengths and exploring them.
I had the chance to interview the lovely author RoAnna Sylver for the blog! Besides sharing a bit about Chameleon Moon (a dystopian book with an F/F/F established relationship!), she’s also bringing some awesome news for a new series. Check out her amazing and fun answers.
Q1: Your novel Chameleon Moon has been calling a lot of attention of the reading community lately. How would you summarize the story of this book for new readers?
There’s a city. It’s on fire. And it’s quarantined behind a giant energy barrier, like a big bubble. Trapped inside is everyone you’d ever expect to fall in love with and then watch die, in every other movie or book that broke your younger self’s heart. Queer people, disabled, neurodivergent, asexual and aromantic, polyamorous folks, married lesbians, agender and nonbinary trans people, kids with PTSD and brains trying to kill them. In this story, they live. They’re the heroes. Sometimes they’re super-heroes. And they freaking rock.
