Sit back and enjoy her interview, and maybe save a few of her tips to memory on this lovely Fall Saturday.
1. Your road to publication has been an interesting one, what has kept you going through your struggles?
The desire not to go back to a regular job! LOL Honestly that does play a role because those don't work out so well for me, but mostly I just want to write truly great books. So I keep trying:)
2. You have developed a really large fan-base, what are some of the things that have worked best for you when connecting with readers?
To the best of my ability, I respond personally to everyone. I mean, where would I be without anyone to read my books? I want every single reader to know that I appreciate them, that I'm thankful that they gave me a chance.
3. You've written a variety of "worlds" do you get crossover readers from your romance novels to your paranormal?
Actually, I do! I don't know what percentage, but I'd say quite a few of them will read both. And I'm so grateful!
4. Reviews are important for selling books. How do you go about asking for reviews?
I don't. LOL I should, but I don't. That's probably why I don't have an over abundance of reviews. I feel like if the emotion is that strong in people, they'll WANT to post a review. I leave it up to them.
5. Authors wear many hats. What are some marketing strategies that have worked best for you?
I've only recently delved into marketing. I have my first blog tour coming up, so I'll have to let you know how that goes later. LOL I've gifted ARCs to bloggers before, which worked out great with The Wild Ones. I hope to be trying new things in the very near future, but those are my two biggest efforts to far.
6. Are you available in multiple formats ie Smashwords, Nook, Kindle? Do you believe self-published authors should bother with print books?
At present, I publish to both Nook and Kindle. I have previously published with Smashwords and I have one book on Kobo, but my primary sellers are B&N and Amazon. As for print books, I love having mine in print for a variety of reasons. Is it my bread and butter? No. Is it worth it? To me, yes!!
