Author Interview Questions:
1. What inspired you to write the Undescribable series?
I have had a book idea in my mind for quite a while. This past Christmas when everyone was trying to figure out what they wanted to do for their New Year’s resolution. I told myself I was going to take that step to making it happen. I have always loved to read and it just felt like it was the right time for me to write my own book. Now here I am a year later and releasing the second book in the series. I couldn’t be happier.
2. What books have most influenced your life most?
I don’t think I can narrow it down. Every book I have read has had an impact to my life in some way. Some leave me in tears and others leave me smiling and laughing. You either compare your life to what you just read, or it makes you feel grateful for the life you have.
3. What author has influenced you the most?
There are several; Colleen Hoover, Abbi Glines, Teresa Mummert, J. Sterling and many more. I follow them all on Facebook and they are always thanking their readers, showing their gratitude. I want to be that way. I want to show my readers that not only did I write a novel, but that this novel will be nothing without them. The readers are what makes this journey worth all the ups and downs.
4. What book are you reading now?
Right now, I am not reading anything. I have been too busy trying to get Unbearable ready for the readers.
5. When did your desire to write start?
When I was young. My grandma still has little stories that I wrote back when I was a kid. I love to read, I could read a book a day. So many books have stuck with me throughout the years. I wanted to touch readers like I have been touched. When I started writing Undescribable it was a small idea, that idea has become a dream. That dream has become a reality. I couldn’t be happier to continue Slade and Samantha’s story in Unbearable.
6. Do you have any advice for other writers?
Never give up! This has not been an easy journey. I have had days where I cried and just wanted to give up and days where I smiled so hard my cheeks hurt. Just because this is my second book does not mean that I am any less nervous than I was with the first. The closer it gets, the more freak outs I have had. It is a roller coaster ride, but it is worth it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. The only person that can hold you back is yourself.
7. What can readers look forward to in the future?
I am currently working on the third and final book of the Undescribable series. I plan to have it released spring of 2014. I know as a reader, I hate having to wait forever for the next book in a series. So, I am going to try my hardest to get Slade and Samantha’s final story out there quickly.
8. Who or what inspires you?
Music. I have to listen to it while I’m writing.
10. If you could be a superhero, what supernatural power would you choose?
To live without sleep. Being a mother and wife, there are not enough hours in the day. Trying to write, clean house, cook dinner and spend the time with my family. There is never enough time for everything or everybody.
11. Which is your favorite movie?
I love to go to the movies. I can watch anything from chick flicks, to horror, to action. Doesn’t matter. Just give me a Coca Cola Icee and some popcorn, I’m good to go.
12. What kind of music do you like?
I listen to everything from country, Rock, or dubstep. I am just not a big fan of rap.
13. What advice would you give to someone who wants to publish a book?
Not everyone is going to like your book. That’s okay. Don’t be afraid to write what you want because you are afraid of the feedback you may receive. Nothing feels better than getting a review that makes you cry when a reader tells you how much they loved your book. I promise all the tears you will shed and all the doubt you have will be worth it.
14. Do you have a message for my blog’s followers?
I want to thank Casey at Hardcover Therapy and everyone else who has wanted to help me out with this Blog Tour. And all the readers who have messaged me how much they loved Undescribable and can’t wait for Unbearable to be released. The support from all of you has been overwhelming and I am truly grateful. It has warmed my heart knowing readers are as excited as I am about this story that I have put my heart into. Thank you. I hope that you all have a chance to read Samantha and Slade’s story. Feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from all of you. <3
