Interview with J.G. Martinez.....
Today I have an interview for you with the talented J.G. Martinez, author of Destined Oracle. This is part of our Write More Publications blog tour series and has some great prizes attached. So be sure to read till the end......
About Destined Oracle:
evil corrupting even the ranks of angels, the one to save the world doesn't
know of what she is capable.
three years old, her Mother hid her in the human world from the realm of magic
and from those who wished to thwart her destiny. After her last remaining
relative on her father's side passes away, her mother decided to return her
daughter to the magic world where she belongs.
the forces of evil building an army, will Savina find the power and strength to
do what she was born to do? Or will the forces of evil finish what it began
years before and destroy her?
I love the supernatural world in
Destined Oracle. Where did your inspiration come from?
always loved the supernatural and fantasy world of other people’s imagination,
and it seemed natural for me to come up with my own. Growing up, instead of
wanting to be a princess, I wanted to be a vampire! As for my world in Destined
Oracle, it came from a few inspirations. One was a dream I had that, in detail,
gave me the layout of the O’ Hayden estate! At the time I was drawn into the
Twilight and Harry Potter world so I am sure that influenced the dream I had!
Is there any part of Savina in you?
She is a great character.
course! Savina’s natural way to jump in, figure things out and save the day, or
at least try, is something I am always doing. I think we can all relate as we
each search within ourselves and try to figure out who we are - like Savina
does in the story.
When you write are you more a
planner, or a fly by the seat of your pants girl?
for Destined Oracle, it flew right out of me. My mind didn’t give me enough
time to plan. I just started one day and literally couldn’t stop until the
entire thing was finished and the way I liked it!
When did you start writing?
have been writing my entire life! But it wasn’t until I got inspiration from
some very wonderful ladies on the internet that I set out to put my stories
altogether and out there so others could read.
How many books do you envision
writing in Savina’s world?
always been only two books. But who knows, maybe in the future, a character
from the Savina world will branch off and create their own way!
Now for some fun questions…… J Pizza or a home cooked meal?
home cooked meal! I have two main cultures in my family so there are a lot of
favorite family cuisines! From Spanish food to Cajun! There is a wide variety
there and I can cook up a fantastic Gumbo or Tamales!
What do you like to do when you are
other books! Plus, I am kid at heart so I sometimes get caught up in a good
video game or two.
What kind of books do you like, and
who is your favorite author?
favorite books are fantasy, supernatural and anything else along that genre! As
for my favorite author, it’s not really a fair question because I have too many
I love all the same and could never just narrow it down to only one!
If Destined Oracle were made into a
movie, who would you like to play your two main characters?
I have thought of that from time to time and
it really is hard to pick just one person for each part. You have to take into
consideration the age of the actors at the time of filming so if it were to be
filmed right now, I would have to say, for Savina’s character, I really see
someone like Britt Robertson playing her.
For Michael, well, that one was hard
so I narrowed it down to Chase Crawford, Zac Effron, or Bradley James. I am
torn on all of them.
I know you only asked for the two
main characters but the others are just as important to me as well and I just
couldn’t help myself!
For Marcus I choose J. D. Pardo or
For Atrina: Dove Carmen or Gabriella
For Aeddan: Alexander Ludwig
For Audrey: Victoria Justice
For Gabriel: Chirs Hemsworth or
For Travis: Shiloh Fernandez or Tyler
And for Lilith I really like
Elizabeth Gillies for that part, but I also like Vanessa Marano or India
or no music when you are writing?
Music! Absolutely! On my playlists I have Two Steps From Hell, Position Music,
Audio Machine, Posthaste Music, Immediate Music, Ivan Torrent, and Future World
