6 Questions With Romina Russell, Author Of ZODIAC + #Giveaway

Hey all! We are beyond thrilled to welcome Romina Russell, debut author of Zodiac here to Good Books & Good Wine today to answer a few questions. Stay tuned for a giveaway below.

1. As Zodiac is about a universe inspired by the astrological signs, what is your sign?

I’m a Virgo, and we’re supposedly practical, controlling, obsessive, fussy, perfectionists…really, it’s almost enough to make me believe in astrology. 😉

2. Do you believe in astrology at all? Why or why not?

I write like Mulder but live like Scully: While I think astrology is a lot of fun and involves some fascinating sociological and mythological concepts, I don’t really subscribe to it. I’m too much of a pragmatic Virgo who only trusts what she can touch!

3. Which character was your favorite to write about?

I loved writing the romance scenes between Rho and her suitors! I love Victorian novels and have an obsession with forbidden/torturous/complicated romances, so it was awesome getting to orchestrate those moments and explore their ramifications.

4. How did it feel when you got the call that Zodiac had sold?

Getting the call was an indescribably amazing feeling—made even better by the fact that it was a friend calling! My editor, Liz Tingue, and I met a decade ago, in a college class, and now the stars have brought us together again for ZODIAC.

5. What book or books are currently on your nightstand?

SUSPICION by Alexandra Monir and WINTER FALLS by Nicole Maggi.

6. If you could sum up Zodiac twitter style (150 characters or less) how would you do it?

ZODIAC is a Sci Fi series that’s more Fi than Sci, featuring 13 made-up cultures, 11 futuristic technologies, 2 hot guys, and 1 fallible MC.

  4. Ah, I love that Romina writes about the Zodiac stuff but doesn’t really buy into it herself. I agree, while I find it fun and fascinating, I don’t put any stock in it. Either way, this book sounds incredibly unique and fun, and I can’t wait to read it! Thanks for the chance!
