What inspires you to write?
Basically life around me and the growing desire to spread a hopeful ending to those who need to see that. I have little hope for myself, but I know there are ways out of what’s in my head and heart, though I can’t see them entirely. Plus, I write for my loved ones.
Tell us about your writing process.
Basically I’m very meticulous in my writing process. Usually I crank up the songs on the soundtrack I’ve queued up for the novel and then go to it until I hit word count . If I’m feeling good after I hit my word count, then I continue, if not, I rest. I’m a militant plotter.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I do indeed listen. They speak, yell, cry, get turned on, fall in love, so they totally talk to me. Usually after I’ve had a few drinks and can be influenced by that part of my mind that’s free.
What advice would you give other writers?
Grow a thick skin.
Listen to your editors.
Learn from those who want to HELP you.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Through traditional E-publishing and NY. This is a team sport. I have no desire to go it alone any more than I have to and find the ridiculousness of self publishing for the sake of calling yourself an author to be bad for business
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It looks bright for those of us who can navigate it and band together to make the smartest business decisions possible. Our only goal is to give the readers what they want while satisfying our needs to write stories.
