Author interview

1. What genres do you write in?

-So far, paranormal mystery and romance.

2. How long have you been writing? On Amazon, one year. In my head, for as long as I can remember!

3. Do you have any published books? Tell me about these.

-I have published four books on Amazon so far. The first (We Shall Be One) is a paranormal mystery, Agatha Christie-style, and I challenge anyone to solve it before the final revelations towards the end of the book. The second one (It Took Me 1265 Summers to Realize) utilizes a trope similar to the Groundhog Day movie, but the main character repeatedly experiences a whole summer rather than just one day. The third one (I Love You Superbia) is a toonophilia romance, the first toonophilia romance in the history of mankind! My latest one (A Heart from Hell) is a spiritual romance that will make you cry. Here is the link to my Amazon page...

4. Do you have any published articles? Tell me about these. -On my blog, I write historical articles, in my own, unique manner, as well as stuff about me as an author. Here is the link to my blog...

5. Did you use an editor? If so, whom?

-Myself!

6. Did you self-publish or traditionally publish? How did it go?

-Self-published. So far, it has gone awful. I need to find a way to make my books visible among the millions of titles available. I have heard that getting kidnapped or dying does wonders for your sales, but I'm a little hesitant!

7. How do you market your work and promote your brands?

-I'm broke, so all I can do for the time being is to whine on Facebook groups and pester unresponsive celebrities on Instagram. Sigh...

One time, someone said to me, 'Write about something you have earned the right to write about.' Before beginning a story, first, experience it. If you cannot experience it in real life, do so at least in your head.

8. How do you plan your writing and start?

Sit on a swing and begin swinging back and forth while building in my head the new universe, brick by boring brick (a reference to the well-known song title might or might not be intended!) I usually need to repeat that process for months before I finally begin writing.

9. What are you working on at the moment?

-It's barely been a week since I published my latest book (A Heart from Hell) and I need some time to recharge my creative batteries. Though I have wanted to write a lesbian romance for quite some time now.

10. What is your target audience?

-Whoever has at least one eye and can read.


11. How long does it take you to write a book?

-About six weeks to write it about two weeks to edit it, about one lifetime to convince the stubborn people of this planet to buy it.

12. When did you first discover you enjoyed writing?

-When I was very little.

13. What does your family think about your writing?

-None of them has read any of my Amazon novels. That being said, my mother thinks I write useless bullshit; she has told me so, word for word! Then again, my mom always automatically writes off anything that has to do with me as childish behavior. I've got mommy issues! As for the rest of my family, they're just not interested in reading them.

14. What do you do when not writing?

-Work out, read, try to come up with my next novel.

15. Where do you get information and ideas for your writing?

-Anytime, anywhere!

16. What do you think makes a good story?

-Good story for whom? One time, years ago, I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (because a classmate of mine lent it to me and pressed me to finish it; otherwise, I would have given up after a few pages) and found it mediocre. Yet that series has sold 500 million copies or so. For Miss Rowling, this is definitely good!
