It’s Friday. Today I will not be doing a #fridayreview instead I am happy to be a part of the blog tour Intro Laconic by W. H. Rose.

Publication date: September 22nd 2020
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Taein Kim, affectionately known as “Blondie”, is an incredibly talented young man and leader of the rookie K-Pop group Eclipse. Tae has his whole life and career in front of him, but it comes to a screeching halt when a standard meet and greet leads to him finding his soulmate, a foreign girl named after the goddess of love.
Venus Woods is the young heiress of the largest tech corporation in Southeastern America. Her life revolves around meaningless events and empty white walls, devoid of color and purpose. She never thought she would meet her favorite idol group, Eclipse, let alone form the incredibly rare soulmate bond with their leader. As if that’s not life-changing enough, her absent mother is determined to have the two married, using her daughter as a bargaining chip.
Separated by lifestyle, culture, and language, the teens have wall after wall between them. None of it stops the blossom of love that blooms in their hearts when they lock eyes under the cover of a thunderstorm.
5 Questions With W.H. Rose
W.H. thanks for taking the time to answer these quick questions. First I want to say, Congratulations W.H. on your debut novel Mythomania.
Thank you so much! 🙂
- How did publishing your first book change your writing process?
Mythomania was the very first story that I ever planned out. While I still don’t go into loads of detail in my outline, I still would have never started to outline at all without realizing that it makes finishing and editing a story so much easier.
- Your new book Intro Laconic and Mythomania has one common theme, K-Pop group. Who is your favourite K-Pop group?
BTS hands down! They’re my babies.
- Let’s dive into your new book Intro Laconic. How did you come to select the names of your characters for this book?
For most of the Eclipse members, I just used a random name generator until it came up with something I really like. With Venus, I wanted her to embody the goddess Aphrodite with her beauty, so I decided to name her after her. Arabella’s name was switched a few times, but I really like what I settled down with.
- What was the hardest scene to write?
Any scene where I had to do a lot of research to make sure I got the setting right. Those were more time consuming than difficult, I suppose.
- Last, you are just beginning on your journey as an author. What does literary success look like to you?
Being able to make a living off of writing. Of course, I’d love to become a New York Times bestseller one day, but I think just being able to support myself with something I love doing would be pure bliss.
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Congratulations again.
