What inspires you to write?
I’m an emotional writer,so I’ll sit down and write (like a diary) and let it all out. Thus, all my writings are in first person narratives.
Tell us about your writing process.
I don’t really have a process. I know most authors do an outline and such, but I really just stare at a piece of paper or a computer screen and write…maybe mumble to myself.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
When I’m writing the dialogue portions I’ll talk to them, lol.
What advice would you give other writers?
Always keep writing!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I did some research and figured independently publishing was the best route for me. I did consider querying an agent and publisher, but online, there seem to be more downside with the traditional process than going independently (well with all the writers’ groups and such that I looked into) so I figured by going indie, there’s nothing to lose!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Its definitely moving digital, and ebooks make it very easy to self publish and have your content widely and easily accessed, not to mention at a much lower cost than print. So just like the music industry there are going to be changes for the consumption of books, promotion of books, and room for new talent to be discovered.
