Back at the beginning of May I participated in an online book fair hosted by Carol Davis called “Spring” into Reading. It was a lot of fun and I had a chance to meet many readers, as well as some fellow authors.
One of those authors was Aaron Hubble. As we talked online, we discovered that we both published our debut novels on the same day. We started to discuss some of the lessons we learned as new indie authors and various methods that we had come up with for producing, publishing, and marketing our books.
Aaron mentioned that he was wanting to do a series of audio interviews and asked if I would be interested. Which, of course, I was!
After a few scheduling missteps and technical difficulties, we managed to have a really great conversation. We talked a little about how I came to the decision to pursue my dream of becoming a writer and the importance of having goals. We also touched upon the topics of NaNoWriMo, my love of science fiction as a romance writer, social media and marketing, finding a community of local authors and how critical I think writing groups are, as well as what my current and future projects will be.
Well, I’m happy to say that interview has just been posted! I’d like to invite you all to go check it out on Aaron’s site and let him know what you think. If you leave a comment on his blog post, he’s going to enter you into a contest to win a free copy of my book, Secret Hunger.
Also, this is the start of what we’re hoping to turn into a new author talk series where we take some time to bounce ideas off each other, discuss what’s working (and what’s not,) and give a general idea of what it’s like to go through this process as a new author. Stay tuned!
