Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Cole Adams and I’ve loved books my whole life. I love losing myself in any creative work in general but books are my favorite medium. So that it was only logical for me to give it a shot. I’ve only written one book so far but I have a multitude of projects nearing completion as well. I’m taking things slow to learn from my mistakes and grow up to be the writer I aspire to be.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Hungry Fox a Fable Told in Rhyme is my first children’s book. The idea came to me on my birthday three years ago and I jotted it on the spot. From there I spent nearly three years writing it and illustrating it myself. I was inspired by an Art style I came across on the Internet and that I really wanted to develop into something beautiful.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I guess I have an unusual writing habit when I think about it. I write on my phone instead of my computer and I tend to write everywhere and anytime inspiration hits me. Note apps are my life saviors.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
This may come off as a cliché but I would definitely say, JK Rowling. Growing up reading the Harry Potter series cemented the idea in me that I wanted to write for a living.
What are you working on now?
I’m developing a fantasy series of 7 novels for quite some time. It’s all I can think about day and night, but it’s taking me longer than expected to write. mostly because I’m working on 5 other children’s books and two sequels to The Hungry Fox a Fable Told in Rhyme.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
As a broke writer, I use mostly social media and actively post about my book. It’s not an easy task to write, illustrate and market your book but I’m fighting for it with all I got.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write good stories not just stories. Write to fulfill yourself and not to sell copies.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Be patient is one of those advices that I hear a lot. And it helps to be patient for a writer.
What are you reading now?
I’m reading fantasy novels and lost of children’s books to get inspired but you can always find me on a Wikipedia page doing research for my books.
What’s next for you as a writer?
More books and then some more.
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?
I’d take my Kindle e-reader and thousands of books. But something tells me I’ll end up naming it Wilson.
