Interview With Author Chloë L. Blyth
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hello! I am a reader and author from the south coast of England. When I’m not reading, I’m writing, and when I’m not doing either I’m probably binge-watching something on Netflix or attending a fitness class! I have published three books so far, a complete trilogy called The Dangers of Dreaming. It’s fun and twisty, perfect for reading on holiday as you won’t want to put it down! (Beware of sunburn!!!)
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Unity was the third and final book in The Dangers of Dreaming trilogy, so I could say it was inspired by the books that came before it, but I think that’s a bit of a cop-out!
Book One was inspired by a dream that was so realistic it could have been a memory (but it wasn’t), and somewhere along the lines I started thinking about how embarrassing it might be if the person sleeping next to you could watch your dreams too… (embarrassing/terrifying/upsetting depending on the dream!)
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I don’t think they’re unusual! I love writing first thing in the morning on a weekend, in my pyjamas, with a cup of something warm.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
All of them? I am an avid reader and I believe that every book influences me in some way, whether it’s a technique I like, or don’t like, they all shape me to be the writer I am today.
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on a Christmas rom com novella.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I’m not sure if I’ve found a winner yet, I’m not very good at book promotion!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Try your hardest (edit, edit, edit!) and don’t lose enthusiasm. Write for you.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Errrrr, I don’t know right now!
What are you reading now?
I have just finished Lesson Plan for Murder by Lori Robbins. I love supporting my fellow indie authors!
What’s next for you as a writer?
More writing! I will have another standalone book out next year, hopefully.
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?
Hmmmm, it would probably be easier to say the books I definitely wouldn’t bring!
I would bring Dracula & Pride and Prejudice. The other two would be a rom com and a psychological thriller (I’m not sure which). A healthy balance!
