Why do you write in the genre(s) that you’ve chosen?
I wrote in self-help because mainly, I wantedto write about my own experiences with depression. The point of view, in my opinion is unique becauseI am not a mental health professional, but a mere layperson.In fiction, I wanted to try and write a novel just because I could say that I did.
What has been your most rewarding experience while in the writing process?
My most rewardingexperience with writing has been the process of getting thoughts on paper in a way that make sense notonly to myself, but to other people.
What has been your most negative experience while in the writing process?
I wouldn’t say this isnegative, but all the re-writes and edits that have to be done before the book actually gets to the publisher. It’s a time consuming process, and I am by nature an impatient person.
What has been your most rewarding experience in your publishing journey?
My most rewardingexperience has been for people to post reviews saying how much they enjoyed my work, and with regardto my self-help books, it is very rewarding to have people tell me how much my experience helpedthem.
What has been your most negative experience in your publishing journey?
It’s just the waiting period between the time the manuscript is submitted and it actually goes out to print. While there are alot of things to do between those two times, it is a ‘limbo’ period, and can be somewhat frustrating.
What one positive piece of advice would you give to other authors?
Chase your dreams. There will be a lot of rejection letters, but keep the faith.
