Author Interview Once Upon A Princess Duet

Author Interview

Have you been writing for a long time?

 

I can’t remember a time that I haven’t been writing! But I really began to take it seriously when I started taking writing classes at a local college. It was great to interact with other writers, even though it was scary at times to share my work. It was a supportive environment, though. I learned how to write short stories, and after a while I sold a few of them. After that, I worked up enough courage to start submitting my work to contests. Finally, about five years ago I completed my first novel. It’s been a progression from one step to the next.

 

 

What inspired you to start a writing career?

 

Since childhood I’ve always wanted to become a writer. The best thing is that I’ve been able to use writing in my various careers. (I’ve had a few!) From being a catalog copywriter to working in IT as a programmer and then as a technical writer. I’m fortunate that writing has always been part of my life in some way. Of course, writing fiction is much more fun than working on a technical manual! Writing for me is something I have to do. It’s that important.

 

 

Is this book a stand-alone or part of a series?

 

My original idea was for three short stories to be included in one book. But as I began to write, the stories got longer and longer. Finally I realized that I had two short novellas. So, I just went with it. This book is a stand-alone that includes the two novellas (which are also available as individual books). If it turns out that the third story gets expanded one day, I might release that as another book in the series.

 

 

 

Why did you choose this genre?

 

Fairy tales are so fascinating because they seem so simple on the surface, but they have important lessons about life. There are so many tales from all over the world, and a lot of them have similarities. For instance, there’s a version of the Cinderella story (based in China) that is thousands of years old. Stories connect us and I think by reading them, we can learn a lot about what it means to be human. I’d never considered writing a fairy tale before, though I have read a few retellings of popular stories. Of course, I had to add shifters because they’re fun to write and they make terrific heroes.

 

 

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

 

My advice would be to write as much as possible. Writers would always tell me to write every day. Sometimes I followed that advice, often I did not! I let other things get in the way, or I procrastinated because of fear that my stories wouldn’t be good enough. But you can’t get better unless you write. Also, it’s a great idea to either seek out writers’ groups or mentors for support. Be open to criticism to make your work better. However, keep in mind that everyone will not like what you write (or how you write your stories). That’s just how it is. It takes a lot of courage to believe in yourself and your work, and know that you have no control over how it will be received. That’s why, in my opinion, it takes a lot of love and commitment to be an author.

Author Interview Saved Book Tour

Have you been writing for a long time?

I wrote a lot in elementary school, but not so much after that until about ten years ago. I’ve been writing steadily for the last ten years.

What inspired you to start a writing career?

I really just started writing to escape reality—I didn’t think I’d ever be a published author or even pursue getting published. But, the writing bug infected me and I decided to be brave and let other people read what I was writing. Other writers are who have inspired me, writing groups and conferences get the fire burning.

Is this book a stand-alone, or part of a series?

SAVED is a stand-alone.

Why did you choose this genre?

I typically write urban fantasy, but my sisters don’t really like the fantasy genre—though they’ve read all of my books and are some of my biggest cheerleaders. They both love to read romance-type books, so I wrote SAVED for them. And… I really enjoyed writing it and will definitely be writing more of this genre.

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

Keep writing. Tell the stories that are trying to get out. Join a writing group so you can bounce your ideas off of like-minded and not-so-like-minded people. Always strive to improve your craft. And… have fun!

Author Bio

Author Interview Trolling

Have you been writing for a long time?

I have been writing since I was little. I finished my first novel as a freshman in college but I never really thought I would publish. It’s only been about the last three years that I decided it was something I really wanted to pursue.

 

What inspired you to start a writing career?

My dad. He always knew how much I loved it and he convinced me that passion needs to be followed.

 

Is this book a stand-alone, or part of a series? 

It’s part of a series. There are four books expected to be in it now, but as I write it seems to be growing so there could be more.

 

Why did you choose this genre?

I’m pretty sure in this case, it chose me. I have always been a fan of romance, but leaned more towards Historical. Then this character, Theno, just appeared and wouldn’t go away.

 

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors? 

Love what you create, because you will be spending a lot of time with it.

Genre: YA Romance

High school juniors Layla and Tyler are complete opposites. Sure she’s a cheerleader and he’s a football player, but she thinks he’s the biggest jerk in the school and he thinks she is too high on her horse to even be worth of a second glance from him. And when the two of them are near one another, sparks fly in all the wrong directions. They are NOT interested in speaking to one another, let alone date.

But when Layla unknowingly sends Tyler a smack-down text meant for the girl sending naked photos to her then-boyfriend, Adam, Tyler has no idea it’s Layla and decides to play along.
