Interview With Author Carol Weakland
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hi, I am an author, actress, storyteller who talks to magical beings like Fairies, Dragons and Unicorns. I love spending time in Nature with animals, plants and trees. I write about Nature Magic in all of my books, including my newest offering: THE DRAGON’S BREATH BOOK. I have written and illustrated 2 Children’s Picture Books, 2 Young Adult Books, and a Romantic Fantasy Series called MORGEN OF AVALON, which is 3 books in totality. In addition, I have written and adapted numerous theatrical plays.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
THE DRAGON’S BREATH BOOK. I literally was visited by Dragons asking me to write the book. That was impetus enough for me. I had been writing about these proud, noble beings for many years in my Morgen of Avalon books. In addition, I also shoot videos about Dragons and their magic for my You Tube Channel: Carol Weakland Sacred Avalon.
Dragons have really been misrepresented on Film, TV and in some Books as well. In fact, a dragon’s breath is one of his most magical gifts. It doesn’t burn you to a crisp. Instead, when you step into a dragon’s breath you will feel invincible! They are here to help us navigate challenging times. Once again, Dragons are such magical beings.
When the Dragons speak, I listen!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I love to write outside in Nature in the shade of enormous trees, while the birds sing and the squirrels chatter. Nature inspires me beyond measure.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
The most influential book of my life has to be Marian Zimmer Bradley’s THE MISTS OF AVALON. This book literally set in motion my twilight dreaming episode where I heard a spirit guide say in a decidedly feminine voice, “Return to Camelot.”
This was my marching order to begin writing the MORGEN OF AVALON series. I took me many years of life experience though, before I actually wrote a single word. I had to become an Energy Healer, study Shamanism and so much more!
Reading THE MISTS OF AVALON was step 1 in what would become a twenty plus year journey to complete the MORGEN OF AVALON series. It was well worth the trip
What are you working on now?
A book about Merlin and his Galactic Heritage as the Great Unifier of the Lyran Wars.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am still learning this game of promotion. Until this point I sold my books at fairs and events. Now I have a publisher who understands the game, so I am approaching this book launch differently.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Follow your heart. It will always show you the truest path.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“I don’t think your book is finished yet.”
In other words, “Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite!”
What are you reading now?
Mastering Your 5 D Self by Maureen St. Germaine
What’s next for you as a writer?
I will definitely be writing more Children’s Books. Now that I am working with a publisher who is a Best-Selling Author, I will be republishing many of my early books using the promotional tools she has provided me.
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?
The Lord of the Rings Series.
