Insight from an author

Hi there, 

In case you missed my online book launch party for THIS TIME, several great questions were asked. Here are some of the questions from fans and my answers: 

Insight from an author

Fan Question: “What inspired this story?”

My Answer: I wondered, ‘what if the hero already made the ultimate sacrifice?’ and “What if the story started when an action adventure movie normal ends?” I create a complex character and named her Nadira.  She sacrifices herself in battle only to be pulled back into a seemingly endless fight between good and evil. 

Fan Question: “What has been some obstacles when you’re writing and getting your books published?”

My Answer: As a new mom, my biggest obstacle is finding the time to write. I think of it as being a mom from 7am-8pm, a wife from 8pm-11pm and a writer from 11pm until 1am (or 3am some nights). Of course all of the roles are occurring simultaneously and a mom’s work is never done … But I usually don’t write until my daughter is asleep for the night and I’ve spent time with my husband. 

Fan Question: “What advice do you give to aspiring writers such as myself?

My Answer: To anyone that has great ideas and want to write a book, my advice is to write often and aim to finish a story. I think that the only thing harder than starting a story is following through until you write “the end.” I struggled with this because I’m a perfectionist and an overachiever. Only when I learned what this phrase meant “Done is better than perfect” did my writing career start to become a reality.

 

I hope you found this interesting. ☺
