1) Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get into writing?
I’ve always been creative. I have an over active imagination. And often times I’ll read a story and think the ending could have been better, or something else would have made more sense. So I eventually decided to write my own stories.
2) What inspired you to write your book?
Specifically with this book, I was sick of most vampire stories featuring vampires falling in love with a whiney neurotic teenager. Vampires see us as food, not lovers. I’ve never lusted after a big mac. So why would a vampire lust after his food. So I decided to write a dark vampire story with an actual monster who has a complete disregard for human life.
3) What theme or message do you hope readers will take away from your book?
That’s a tough on. The theme itself is about revenge. But at its heart…the story explores the vampires broken heart. He loved someone who turned on him. It drove him mad. And most of the book focuses on his madness. I guess that’s the take away…women drive men mad
4) What drew you into this particular genre?
Honestly…a facebook vote lol. I wanted to write several different genres. And I asked my followers which of several ideas they liked most based off 3 line pitches…and this one got most likes lol.
5) If you could sit down with any character in your book, what would you ask them and why?
This is a hard one. I get into the head of all my characters as I write them. Good or bad, I try to write from his or her point of view. So in essence…I’m already a part of all of them.
6) What social media site has been the most helpful in developing your readership?
Id say facebook has been most influential. I have a decent following from my days as a former youtuber. My old YouTube channel still has 25k subs…and I haven’t yet released a video on the channel to get sales for my book. But im debating advertising on my old channel. So if I do…YouTube will likely be most helpful lol but as of now…its facebook.
7) What advice would you give to aspiring or just starting authors out there?
Just do it. Don’t do it for fame or money. Just write what you enjoy. Tell a story you would want to read. And get it done. If people like it great. If not…who cares. You did it. The most satisfying part so far…is being able to say I wrote a book. The fact so many people who’ve read it….like it…is just a bonus.
8) What does the future hold in store for you? Are any new books/projects on the horizon?
This book is a planned trilogy. So I’m really excited for people to find out what happens to Alaric after the cliffhanger ending. After that I want to do a autobiography. I’ve lived a crazy life and want to document it in case I die one day lol
