The Paradox Series:  By Patti Roberts

Nine hundred years ago, under the complete cover of darkness, the Grigorian army rose silently from their underground lair and attacked the Bulguardian Royal Palace. The bloody and violent battle between the two most legendary houses raged on. All but destroying the majestic Royal City of Altair.

It was not the first war that Juliette had endured between good and evil. And it most certainly would not be her last.

Book one:

Today, Grace’s strange but idealised world is suddenly turned upside by a visitor – The Angel of Death. And as Grace’s struggles to survive with her paralysing loss, she is also forced to endure the haunting visions and untimely deaths of others.

Steeped in palpable emotion, this is a story that will leave you with haunting visions and your own thoughts about  immortality and the afterlife.

On any given day you can usually find me sitting at my desk in front of my laptop pounding away at the keys writing another chapter in the Paradox series.

That would be a run of the mill kinda day for me!

A packet of Cruskits and a water bottle is sitting on the desk beside me. There is also a mass of USB cables, bills to be paid, bills to be filed and a printer that is forever running out of ink. Sound familiar.

On most days I have to remind myself to eat and drink. I Should be thinner!!!

I am sure my housemates are very thankful that I still manage (usually at some ungodly hour) to bathe, brush my hair and clean my teeth.

I don’t know about you. But I am usually mortified when visitors just pop around uninvited, only to find me sitting at my desk and still in my PJ’s. I don’t even want to broach the hair situation!

Did I remember to put last nights dishes away???

PS: So if you are thinking about popping a round for a coffee, that might be nice. But please give me a quick call first so I can brush my hair and smear a bit of colour across my lips.

What will readers like about your book?
I am hoping that readers will love the characters. Bond with them the way I have. Feel the characters emotions and live their story through the written word.

Why did you self publish?

I did research and discovered that there have been some remarkable success stories about authors that have taken the self publishing route. And hopefully, readers permitting….

What is your writing process?

I don’t go crazy and write a ton of chapters as quickly as I can. I like to really think about what I’m writing about as much as possible. I work on each chapter as a whole and try to get it just right. Then I go back and do a reread and a rewrite after I’ve written about 3 to 4 chapters.

Occasionally I jump ahead a few chapters to write a part of the story that I just can’t wait to write. Part 2 of the Paradox Series – Progeny Of Innocence – has been a lot like that for me. It is part of the story that I’ve been really looking forward to writing.

How long does it take you to write your first draft?

It took me two years to write the first part in the series, Paradox – The Angels Are Here.

What inspired you to write this particular story?

A broken heart. Instead of going out and buying a new pair of shoes, join a gym, go to the movies, all the things that they tell you to go out and do when you’ve had your heart broken. I went out and bought a new laptop computer instead and started writing. I’ve been at it ever since.
