Interview With Author Abbey Bowen
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hi there! I'm Abbey!
I am a licensed attorney turned fiction writer.
I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with my wonderful boyfriend and our three cats!
During the pandemic, I decided to leave my corporate job and pursue the dream I’ve always had to become a published writer. I can’t say it’s been an easy journey, but it’s been so rewarding and fun!
I’m currently working on my first series titled “Reflections of Blue” (books one and two are out now)!
(Basically, I’m a bubbly and happy-go-lucky gal who enjoys writing fantasy smut from time to time. 😊)
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
"Echoes of Green (Reflections of Book Two)." It is the second book in the series, and it is an extension of the dream I had that inspired the first one (if you want, you can read more about that on my blog)!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I suppose it could be seen as unusual that I wrote the first book without any kind of "beat sheet." I just kind of came up with the story as I went along. However, I struggled to write a cohesive plot in "Echoes of Green," and I was introduced to "Save the Cat! Writes a Novel," and the second book was much more structured before I started writing.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Diana Gabaldon, Neil Gaiman, and Hanya Yanagihara.
What are you working on now?
"Hauntings of Hazel," the third book in the "Reflections of Blue Series."
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I have found Pubby.com to be helpful in getting reviews on Amazon. As far as advertising goes, I'm still testing the waters outside of Amazon itself. Hopefully, Awesome Gang will be a great resource for readers who need an escape to find my books!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Pay for professional editing services. I know it can seem expensive, but it is so important!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
"Still Me" by Jojo Moyes
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
"Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon
"Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman
"A Little Life" by Hanya Yanagihara
