L.M. Preston - Flutter of Luv - Author Interview

Author Interview

1. Who is the plot based around?
Flutter Of Luv’s plot is based on finding love while finding yourself. The main character, Dawn, was comfortable hiding her beauty because she’d never had anyone to make her feel beautiful. But inside, deep within, she had been through a lot but looked at life as it was given to her. However, Tony moves in and slowly peels away the layers to discover what she’s afraid to reveal to everyone else.

2. What is the main idea of the plot?
The main idea is to show how loving someone can allow us to love ourselves.

3. When does the plot take place?
Flutter Of Luv’s story takes place in present day but has an older feel to it since the characters spend more time outside playing with each other than inside playing video games.

4. Where does the plot take place?
Flutter of Luv takes place in an urban city. I envisioned, Washington, DC but I don’t specify since I just want it to be a universal city for the reader.

5. Why did the plot develop the way it did?
In Flutter Of Luv, Dawn starts off with a crush on Tony, and through friendship she finds much more. It was a slow development where she went from watching Tony, to him watching her, to them developing something new for both of them.

6. How did you come up with the idea for the plot?
My critique group had a writing prompt challenge. I created a few short stories for it, and the one Episode: Bug Juice was the story I submitted. My daughter is my ever supportive beta reader. She told me I should create 9 more Episodes and develop the story because she felt there was more to it. And within a week, I’d finished it.

About the Book
Dawn, the neighborhood tomboy is happy to be her best friend’s shadow. Acceptance comes from playing football after school with the guys on the block while hiding safely behind her glasses, braces and boyish ways. But Tony moves in, becomes the star running back on her school’s team and changes her world and her view of herself forever.
