INTERVIEW

Q: Who are you when you’re not writing?

A: Well I’m a mother two beautiful girls, and after my writing, then my duties as a VA come next. VA stands for virtual assistant.  I take over promotional tasks so the writer can then continue on their next book, and not to have to spend hours online trying to get their previous books seen. My clients are usually new authors, that don’t know where to start when it comes to promotion and authors that have been published for some time, but never quite had enough confidence to put themselves out there. By the time our month is over the author will be confident and competent to continue promoting their books/s successfully. There is a lot more involved than just tweeting and posting on FB. I have had a 100% success rate, with glowing testimonials, that have actually made me blush. I also design book trailers and I’m a narrator, so you could say I keep myself rather busy.

Q: Why choose Indie?

A: I self-published my first book back in 2007 because of the amount of rejections I got from publishers and agents. I saw the potential my book had, I believed in it 100%. So began my relationship with Lulu.  You have to remember that back then e-books didn’t exist. It was all paperbacks. I tried a couple of other publishers and got badly burned. I had to get burnt twice though before I learned my lesson. I then got a publishing contract for my MC thriller, Huntress. I didn’t renew the contract as I was still doing just as much publicizing as I was with my Indie books. Yes, being an Indie author takes up a lot of time, effort with very little rewards. Are you doing it for the rewards? If the answer is yes, you should wait and get yourself an agent and a publishing contract. I’m proud to be Indie.
