Author Interview: Dianne Duvall

AuthorPic

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I love all things creative.  Writing is my favorite, of course.  And romance is my favorite genre.  It’s the only genre that contains all of the other fiction genres within it as sub-genres.  Contemporary, historical, comedy, drama, paranormal, sci-fi, horror, mystery, suspense.  The possibilities are endless.  And I just can’t get enough of those happily ever after endings.   😉  So when I decided I wanted to pursue writing as a career, I knew I had to write romance.  It’s as entertaining to me as reading.

When I’m not writing, I work in the local independent film industry, which provides me with yet another creative outlet.  More often than not, I work behind the scenes, providing special effects or special effects makeup, serving as script supervisor, editing the films and making trailers.  But I have, on rare occasions been talked into appearing onscreen, and once even crawled out of a moonlit grave in a horror film.

Why do you write?

Writing is something I simply love to do.  I have always had a very active and vivid imagination, and realized early on that writing provided me with a very entertaining outlet for it.  I wrote my first romance (a teen historical romance that has never been published) when I was thirteen years old.  And the stories have been coming to me ever since.  When I entered college, I originally chose journalism as a major, but soon found it too restricting.  Fiction allowed me far freer reign, so I changed my major to English with a focus on creative writing and, soon after, began penning my first adult romance novel.

What is your latest book about? Why should readers buy it?

A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN, the first book in my new series The Gifted Ones, was just released on June 2nd.  It’s a historical romance, with paranormal elements, that features a hero and heroine who I think will appeal to many romance readers.  Lord Dillon is a very powerful earl whose ferocity on the battlefield spawns rumors that precedes him into every room, stilling tongues and sparking fear in all. Weary of battle, he wishes only to find a bride who will grant him the tenderness that has been absent from his life for so long. Yet every woman trembles at his approach.  Every woman, that is, save the mysterious wisewoman who has counseled him for seven years.  She alone sees through his formidable facade to the quiet man beneath.  She alone argues with him, brings laughter into his life, and comforts him on his darkest days.  Born with extraordinary gifts that label her a sorceress, Alyssa is forced to conceal her youth and the love she harbors for Dillon beneath umbral robes that lead him and his people to believe she is the same aged wisewoman who served his father.  But all is revealed and passion soon flares when an enemy threatens Dillon’s life and Alyssa sacrifices everything to save him.

How do you market your books?

In a wide variety of ways.  The internets has made it so much easier for authors to connect with readers.  Blog tours like this one are always fun and allow me to “meet” new readers, as well as “see” some familiar faces.  I enjoy interacting with other readers and writers on Facebook and other social media sites.  I also do so on my blog, offering readers sneak peeks into new releases and works in progress, along with the latest news on my series.  I post trailers on Youtube, my blog, and my website.  Both the internet and the publishing industry are changing so swiftly that new methods of marketing books are always emerging and engaging both writers and readers.

Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?

I hope you will enjoy Dillon and Alyssa’s story.  It was such a pleasure to write. A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN is actually the book that inspired me to create my Immortal Guardians series.  Alyssa is the first gifted one (someone born with extremely advanced DNA that lends him or her special abilities or gifts) I created.  And she, along with Marcus, Seth, and Roland—all of whom appear in A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN—sparked the many what ifs that compelled me to pen my Immortal Guardians books.

If you’ve read my Immortal Guardians books, I hope you will enjoy seeing Marcus in both A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN and RENDEZVOUS WITH YESTERDAY (the second book, which will follow next year) as a mortal teenaged squire.  You’ll see Seth in both books as well.  Even antisocial Roland makes an appearance in A SORCERESS OF HIS OWN.  And don’t forget to look for SHADOWS STRIKE, Immortal Guardians Book 6, in August.  I hope you’ll enjoy it as well.

Interview: Author Lisagh Winters

Would you please tell us about yourself and your work?

My name is Lisagh Winters, and I’m a Canadian that was raised in Vancouver, B.C.. I live out on the Atlantic coast now. I’m a huge music fan, particularly the 70’s and 80’s styles, and I play guitar. My work is different from most, but always centers on a love story. I love Dramedies, adventure/love stories, romantic comedies, etc. I don’t write erotica, but do include at least one naughty love scene per book. 🙂

As a young girl, I read a LOT of dog related stories like Call of the Wild, Old Yeller, The Incredible Journey, Big Red, Wilderness Champion, Lassie, and Where the Red Fern Grows. I was an enthusiast when it came to canines. Of course my tastes changed as I got older, preferring reads that focussed on a love story.

At what point did you realize this was something you wanted to do?

I knew I wanted to write and publish my own stories since I was about eight years old. I would habitually disappear into the coat room and write in my scribblers, novel after novel, with illustrations. I still have a few of these to this day. 🙂

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I first considered myself a writer later in life. I had a family, worked other jobs, you know, like everyone else. I still hold a separate job outside my writing now.

Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?

The book was Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls. I still have my original copy, a ninth printing of the novel, 1976. I read it from time to time as a reminder of how much emotion this book pulled out of me, and how much emotion I must strive to pull out of the readers with my own work.

What’s a typical working day like for you? When and where do you write? Do you set a daily writing goal?

My typical working day will either consist of going to my day job, or writing. If I’m writing, I never set goals. That imparts stress and I am useless when I’m stressed out. I prefer to write by the seat of my pants, come what may. That is what editing is for. 😉 I write in the loft of my home, where I have built myself a nest with everything I need to facilitate my creative juices. I have it decorated in burgundy and gold, and there are lots of candles, incense, and of course a photo of my Mom. It’s out of the way of distractions and noise, and when it’s nice outside I open the window and listen to the Jays in the trees.

How do you deal with writer’s block? What is your advice?

Liquor. Okay, no, seriously now, lol, I walk away from the work and give myself a break. I’ll go for a coffee, maybe take a walk, I’ll call a friend to chat, or watch one of my favorite old TV shows on DVD. Those shows usually offer a great looking hero, and a love story threaded between the lines. My faves are Crossing, Jordan, Sliders, My Name Is Earl, and Firefly. 🙂 Try it. That, or I watch wrestling for the bodies, lol.

You wrote a book titled Soul Scavengers. What is this book about?

Soul Scavengers is about a team of ghost hunters (paranormal investigators) that tackle unusual cases that you might not see anywhere else. The team includes our hero Sullivan Wilde, the lead investigator, and heroine Olivia Emerson, a psychic medium. They meet on a closed investigation (one not being edited for TV) and lock horns right away. Sullivan is rude, condescending, and makes no bones about his disbelief in Olivia’s talents. Olivia is out to prove him wrong. She’s no fraud. Both Olivia and Sullivan soon discover butting heads isn’t getting them anywhere. The fact that there’s an entity out to get them forces them to work together just to make it to the other side of night. Their attraction to one another is evident from the get go, but neither one of them is willing to admit it until it may be too late.

How did you come up with the title?

I originally wanted to call it Soul Searchers, but that name was taken, so I settled on Scavengers, because it fit well. A friend of mine and I threw ideas back and forth until she came up with Scavengers. So I can’t take credit for the title.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

There are many, but I’ll choose one. My favorite part of the book was when Olivia accidentally reveals her painful past, and we get a peek into what makes her the way she is. We also get to see a snippet of Sullivan’s ability to be kind and offer comfort. He has a heart, and he demonstrates that. I love this part because it shows that even someone as hard as Sullivan appears to have the ability to feel and offer solace. No one is ever beyond hope. We are all human.

Did you work with an outline, or just write?

I did not work with an outline, just an idea. I just wrote.

Why do you think your readers are going to enjoy your book?

I think they’ll enjoy this book because it isn’t just a straight romance. It’s a little suspense, some comedy, a hint of adventure, and a romance all wrapped up into one story. I like stories like that myself. 🙂

What kind of research did you do for this book?

I watched a lot of reality TV paranormal shows, and I Googled lots of stuff, LOL.

Can you tell us about your challenges in getting this book completed and published?

One of the biggest challenges I had was being a foreigner working with an American publishing company. Canada and the US have a trade treaty concerning earnings, and in order to take advantage of that I have to jump through like, a bazillion hoops and red tape with the IRS just to get paid. LOL. I can’t tell you how confusing the forms are that I had to fill out for taxation purposes.

Another challenge was over-coming my paranoia that I wasn’t good enough. That was the biggest challenge of them all. Self-doubt will creep in and bite you in the rear end at any moment. Don’t let him win. You are good enough, and let no voices in your head tell you any different.

What advice would you give to writers who are contemplating writing their first novel?

My advice is to write what you love and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t. Please see the last part of answer 13. Just sit down and start typing. Your imagination is only limited by your belief in yourself. If *I* can do this, YOU can too!

How do you market your work? What avenues have you found to work best for your genre?

I have a Facebook and Twitter account where I post things, and I used an ebook tour service. Everything Marie.com. The ebook tours are marvelous and showcase your work to hundreds, if not thousands of people. It’s well worth the money. Romance is a fickle lady, and you want every advantage you can lay your hands on. I find word of mouth, customer reviews, and good reviews from the romance book bloggers some of the best exposure you can get.

What has influenced your development as a writer?

Hmmm. I would have to say the thing that influences me the most as a writer, is watching or reading a good love story. Nothing gives me more motivation than seeing two characters discover that they are in love. Something else that helps with development is the encouragement of friends and family. Without that, it would be a little hollow for me.

What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?

For a reader to tell me they were bored reading my story. That is the most crippling. There is no other worse thing you can tell me than to say that you were bored. It means I didn’t do my job and failed to capture your imagination.

The best compliment some readers have given me is that they ‘got’ my characters, and understood what made them tick. Along with that, I’ve been told the work is humorous and entertaining. I want to know you were thoroughly engaged for the whole book, and telling me that makes me smile. This was one of the best compliments I got:

“I found Soul ScavengersWilde and the Witch a highly entertaining paranormal romance with enough spice to heat up the pages and a malevolent haunting that will make you want to leave the light on. Perfectly balancing humor, horror and matters of the heart, I look forward to reading more of Lisagh J. Winter’s storytelling.”

What is the hardest part of writing for you?

The hardest part of writing for me is to mind the word counts. I usually pay no attention until it’s down to the nitty-gritty and it’s being edited for the umpteenth time. That, and love scene after-glow stuff, lol.

What’s the best thing about being an author?

The best part about being an author is the joy of knowing that a reader had a great time reading my book. I entertained them and they were left satisfied, and that in turn, leaves me feeling satisfied.

Do you have any favorite authors or favorite books?

When I was a teenager, V.C. Andrews and the Flowers in the Attic Saga. I loved those books. Also, of course, Dr. Suess.

If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?

Scatter – because, wine.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

I enjoy going for drives in the country, drawing, gardening, and flying.

Are there any non-creative avenues you would like to explore?

I’d like to get back into the cockpit. It’s been a long time since I flew.

What motto, quote, or saying do you live by? Why?

“Do, or do not. There is no ‘try’.”

– Yoda (‘The Empire Strikes Back’)

I love this movie quote because it says it all. We all have dreams, the only obstacle to those dreams is ourselves.

Do you have any upcoming projects, tours, events, or announcements that you would like to share with our readers?

YES! I have book two of Soul Scavengers coming out in about a month. 🙂 Watch my twitter and Facebook for updates!

I am also working on another romance, tentatively called, Only Hope. I am hoping, lol, to have this one out very soon. 😀 There will be a synopsis of this story up on my Goodreads and Facebook pages soon.

My blog is in the Goodreads site. 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to participate in this interview. What final thought and/or message would you like to leave with our readers?

You’re welcome. This was my pleasure. 🙂

I suppose my final message would be to say that no matter what it is you want to accomplish, you can. I am living proof of that. I published a book. I shut my eyes and clicked the publish button and there it was! If you are afraid, I can help you with that. Let’s put it this way… I saw the movie The Wolf of Wall Street. If actor Leonardo Di Caprio can lie naked with a lit candle sticking out of his ass crack while hog tied, (the man has my respect) and do it knowing that millions of people are going to see this film, YOU can write and publish your own book. That, or whatever else your heart desires. It can be yours, all you have to do is get over your fear and believe in YOU.

 

 

Interview: The Prolific Penman

Prolific1-9

Would you please tell us about yourself and your work?

My name is Adrian Pearson however, I am known as The Prolific Penman, which means fruitful writer. My style of poetry is love and inspiration.

At what point did you realize this was something you wanted to do?

I realized that I was a poet as I was coming out of a bad battle with depression over the loss of my youngest child at 5½ months. I knew that this was something I wanted to do because it was the only thing that I didn’t have to struggle to do. It seemed like second nature to take my pain and spin it into happiness.

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I first considered myself a writer the moment I believed and spoke it. I am not trying to be spiritual but it is the truth. Had I not believed in the gift that was given to me and spoke to it as if it were a part of my very soul then poetry would be like so many other things I tried and either let go of or gave up on.

When and where do you write? Do you set writing goals?

I write anywhere for the fact that poetry is a living part of me and almost anything or anyone can inspire me to write. Yes, I set goals for myself when it comes to producing a book or creating a cover but never do I set goals when it comes to writing poetry.

How do you deal with writer’s block? What is your advice on how to overcome it?

If I should feel writers block coming on I always return to the place where I first began writing and that is outdoors where I honed my skills while riding a bike or walking the streets. The only suggestion that I would make is that a person return to the thing that inspired them to write or take a small break and channel their energy into another project until the writer’s block passes.

What is your first book of poetry called? When and where was it published? What is it about?

My first book is called Real Expression of Words Never Heard; The Poet, The Man, The Idea. I had this book pulled and since then it has become two completely separate books: Real Expression of Words Never Heard, which is published with Author House and The Poet, The Man, The Idea is being released as a chapbook before being majorly published.

How did you come up with the title?

Countless things inspire the titles to my books. Many of the titles have come to me while walking or riding my bike or in a dream while I was a sleep.

If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of this book that you would change? Why?

I did have to go back and change the first book because it wasn’t ready plus it was a test by God to see if I was willing to be obedient to the holy spirit. The reason why was so that He could show me the areas that needed to be improved upon. Looking over my first book showed me that I could become someone great if I kept applying myself to learning and perfecting my skills.

Can you tell us about your challenges in getting this book completed and published?

Writing the first book wasn’t hard but the cover design was a daunting task. Finding a publisher was tricky at first, but had I not paid paved the way for myself by giving the publishers a way to view just what type of poetry I write then I am sure that too would have been quite hard.

What advice would you give to writers who are contemplating writing their first book of poetry?

My advice: simply do not contemplate on doing something. Learn to trust the inner voice that cries out. You can win. Please remember that for every step you take, God has already taken two in front of you. Once you are in line with God’s word and start to operate within your gift all things and people will fall into place.

What is the hardest part of writing for you?

Nothing is hard about writing for me. It seems to flow like water but the only challenges I face are knowing which poems to publish online and which ones to hold onto for a book.

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

The best thing about being a writer is the freedom of self-expression and the ability to create a completely new world from words alone.

Please tell us about your latest book of poetry. What is it called? What is it about?

I have a book that is published with DIP Publishing and it’s tilted: An Outward Expression of My Inward Love. This book is about the love I felt for someone but didn’t quite know how to show it or express it with actions that would make sense, so I jotted down my emotions and every unspoken word in the hopes that she would read and then understand why I told her that I love her.

Can you describe one of your favorite poems that you wrote? Why does this poem stand out more so than the others?

One of the poems that stands out to me is a poem titled “Poetry Is My Mistress”. This poem was inspired by a disagreement I had with the mother of my children. She stated that I spent more time writing, publishing and pushing poetry than I did with her.

Why do you think your readers are going to enjoy your book?

I think people are going to enjoy the life that each poem takes on as well as the fact that everything I write is derived from truthful situations that happened in my life.

How do you market your work? What avenues have you found to work best for your genre?

I started off simply posting online and developed a name for myself there first. Once I was established online I moved on to performing, attending networking events and proceeding to tell any stranger that I would meet who I was, what I did, and even showed them how to find me.

What has influenced your development as a writer?

There are plenty of people who have played a role in the helping me develop as writer but the one person who helped give the words I write with such passion, such life, would have to be my son’s mother Stephane Leo. Everything I endured with her gave me the courage to turn all of my mishaps in life into a love story for others to read. Not only did she shape the way I now write poetry but she has also changed my outlook on life.

What has been the toughest criticism given to you as a writer? What has been the best compliment?

The toughest criticism came from someone I knew. They stated that I would give up and never see anything I did through. To be truthful anyone who has read my poems before I was known has always had great things to say and have encouraged me to keep going and to seek out others as well as to read other authors who wrote poetry so I could develop my gift. The greatest compliment would have to be receiving an award from The International Who’s Who In Poetry as well as one from the World Poetry Movement.

Do you have any favorite poets or favorite books?

My favorite poet would have to be Maya Angelou and my two favorite books are The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale and Crazy Love by Francis Chan.

If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?

I had to write a book about my life the title would be The Power of One Choice.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

When I am not writing I enjoy doing freelance photography.

Are there any noncreative avenues you would like to explore?

I have tried to become so many things before becoming a poet that I would have to say no there aren’t any other noncreative avenues that I would like to explore at this time.

What motto, quote, or saying do you live by? Why?

The quote I live by is: “I did nothing to become good at what I do except honor God in everything I did.” This means that no matter if I am up or down, wrong or right that I will keep my eyes focused on God. I pray and constantly ask Him to show me His plans for my life because I have no clue as to what my purpose is.

Do you have any upcoming projects, tours, events, or announcements that you would like to share with our readers?

I have book called: An outward Express of My Inward Love that I am now promoting and would like to request for your readers to kindly pick up a copy. As well as a chapbook called The Poet, The Man, The Idea is coming soon.

Interview: Author Reggie Stacks

Thank you for joining us. I’m excited to bring you my first blog interview. Today our interview is with novelist Reggie Stacks. Reggie is currently living in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the author of Ghetto Heaven and host of the TV show Kick Back with Stacks.

If this Q&A interview with Reggie grabs your interest and you would like to learn more about him, please visit his website.

Reggie IMG_5876 copy 2

Alice: Would you please tell us about yourself and your work?

Reggie: Hey everybody I’m Reggie Stacks, just your typical laid back type of guy, nothing fancy. I was born in North Carolina but I lived in Atlanta for 20 years. I’m a father of 3 who enjoys writing great books.

Alice: At what point did you realize this was something you wanted to do?

Reggie: I realized that once I had completed the rough draft of Ghetto Heaven and everyone was excited and liked it, I knew I was going to pursue this.

Alice: What has been your biggest motivation? Where does your inspiration come from?

Reggie: I have to say my biggest motivation comes from the need to succeed in all I do. Sharing my talents and gifts with others and giving readers a story they can relate to is motivating to me. Life is my inspiration.

Alice: What is your creative regimen? How often do you write?

Reggie: I tend to write the most and at my best on days when I can just zone out and have the TV turned on in the next room, not really watching it but just to have some noise or gangsta rap playing in the background.

Alice: How do you deal with writer’s block? What is your advice on how to overcome it?

Reggie: Writers block: just step away give your brain a rest then come back to it later. I remember writing Ghetto Heaven and it necessarily wouldn’t be writers block but I’d get stumped on how best to relay the next part. The advice to me was don’t force it and it’s true I read Ghetto Heaven all the time and I see parts where I feel like it was forced, not flowing naturally. Hey I guess it works – no one notices but me and fans love it so I guess just taking a break will help.

Alice: What do you do when you are not writing?

Reggie: Concentrate on my TV show and spend time with kids. Chase women and make money…just joking!

Alice: Do you have a day job as well?

Reggie: Not really unless someone wants to offer me a high paying less work job.

Alice: You wrote a book titled Ghetto Heaven. What is this book about?

Reggie GHGirl 2

Reggie: Ghetto Heaven is loosely about me. Seriously it’s a roller coaster ride of Curtis and his women. He has it all until an ex from the past threatens to destroy his newfound happiness.

Alice: How did you come up with the title?

Reggie: It’s catchy and it’s from a song very few people I’ve ran into remember.

Alice: What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?

Reggie: I can’t really say I have a favorite chapter. I enjoyed writing it all. I’m like a fan that loves the whole book. I read one chapter, liked it then read the next chapter and liked that as well. It’s hard to pinpoint just one section.

Alice: Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?

Reggie: I would say its 50/50 real life experience mixed with a vivid imagination that makes for a great read.

Alice: Did you work with an outline, or just write?

Reggie: There was no formal training at all for this book to turn out the way it did. And for it to get accepted by readers I think I did a good job. I didn’t really do an outline, I just as I created or introduced characters along the way, although I had to keep notes on each one.

Alice: If given the chance, would you change anything about this book?

Reggie: Funny I ask myself that a lot. Before it was published I think I may have rewritten and changed the story about 10 times before I selected the story it is now. Can it be better? Sure but at some point you just have to choose and be happy with one edition

Alice: Can you tell us about your challenges in getting this book completed and published?

Reggie: The biggest challenge for me I have to say was deciding what to finally go with as far as all the rewrites, deleted chapters, and changes.

Alice: What advice would you give to writers who are contemplating writing their first novel?

Reggie: I speak with a lot of authors and I tell them all the same thing. Writing and completing it are the 1st steps – just do it.

Alice: How do you market your work? What avenues have you found to work best for your genre?

Reggie: I self-published my book and I wear all the hats. If you can afford marketing campaigns that’s great in addition to reviews, press releases, book signing and of course yourself. You are your biggest fan and know you best!

Alice: What has influenced your development as a writer?

Reggie: Honestly, giving my readers and fans my best force me to hone my writing skills. Plus reading other works I feel I can do much better.

Alice: What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?

Reggie: Believe it or not I haven’t had much criticism and I’ve been welcoming it. I feel like it’s the only way I can become a better writer. I guess the best compliments are when I’m repeatedly asked when is part 2 coming out.

Alice: Can you please share with us more about your show Kick Back with Stacks?

Reggie: Kick back with Stacks is my TV show. It’s a relaxed atmosphere where me and the guest kick back and chop it up about a variety of topics.

Alice: Can you please tell us about your upcoming book?

Reggie: Twisted…I’m so excited. It’s a collection of short stories that all have a twisted ending or tale. On this project I just want to connect with my readers and show them that my first novel wasn’t a one book wonder…lol. I write in different styles in Twisted from first person to third person and back to traditional bringing some good stories to life.

Alice: Are there any other genres or creative avenues you would like to explore (i.e. music, singing, painting, etc)?

Reggie: I think this is as creative as I get with writing…lol.

Alice: Are there any noncreative avenues you would like to explore?

Reggie: Yes I would love to take my TV show to the next level, maybe national or on cable channels across the US.

Alice: Can you share with us some of your goals for this year?

Reggie: Have Twisted out in stores before the spring and well as completing the trailer for Ghetto Heaven. I also want to be more mainstream, have viewers rushing to tune in to Kick Back with Stacks every Thursday.

Alice: Do you have any upcoming projects, tours, events, or announcements that you would like to share with our readers?

Reggie: Book signing at Nubian Bookstore on April 6th and April 12th-13th.

Alice: Thank you for taking the time to participate in this interview. What final thought and/or message would you like to leave with our readers?

Reggie: Thanks for having me, it was my pleasure to be on. I’m grateful for your interest in my campaign. I would like to thank all of those that checked out this blog for taking the time get to know Reggie Stacks.
