Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Angelina Kerner and I am an indie author. I have started writing in high school. Overall, I have written about ten books. I love writing fantasy romance and crime fiction.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Deity’s Soulmate is my published novel and is the latest. The inspiration came to me through the creation of my character, Gardenia, from high school. Gardenia has been with me for so long that finally I got the guts to write her story. It was long overdue. Her story is still not finished. At the moment, book two and three are in the works.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I tend to carry a notebook with pens with me all the time, in case I would receive an inspiration.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Marion Zimmer Bradley and James Clemens have inspired me greatly. If I could meet James Clemens, I would be in heaven. His “witch fire” saga is purely amazing! I fell in love with the characters and bought all of his books in one week. He has so much passion! I would love to bring out my passion from writing and to be able to influence young authors as well.
What are you working on now?
At the moment, I am working on my next novel, which is a sister novel to my published novel. It has romance, phoenixes, and competition for love.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My personal website and word of mouth. I am still new to promoting my novel, and hoping that I will have time to learn to make things happen.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Bribe your artistic friends with chocolate to come up with book covers and illustrations for your work. Chocolate works!
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
You can’t please everyone, so don’t try.
What are you reading now?
Currently, I am re-reading “The Martian”.
What’s next for you as a writer?
To publish more books and hopefully inspire more authors.
