Interview With Author Iliyana Stareva
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I've lived in 5 countries across Europe for the last 13 years and I've worked in various fields, spending most of my career in the tech industry. I started my journey in PR and discovered my passion for writing early on. First, I started with a blog over 10 years ago and discovered that I get energised by writing what I learn and sharing my experiences with the world. That's how my two books came about – Inbound PR and now my new book Money Mastering. Both very different topics but they've been aligned to my current interests which always change as my motto is never stop learning.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is called "Money Mastering: The Simplest, Yet Most Important Money Management Tips You Should Have Been Taught at School". It was inspired by my journey to better money management with my husband and us uncovering how so many people struggle with money and are not aware of very basic money management techniques because no one has taught them. So we set on a mission to change that and wrote this book.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write at 5.30am when I am most productive.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I'm a big fan of Simon Sinek and I always try to start with why.
What are you working on now?
Currently working on promoting the new Money Mastering book.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Amazon and my own website: https://www.iliyanastareva.com/ but it needs more work for the new book. I do this in my free time so it's not yet where I want it to be.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just do it – write, write, write. I'm not a professional writer but anyone can share a story and then there's a ton of support how to make it out there as a book.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Do what you're passionate about
What are you reading now?
I'm a big fan of DCI novels so it's the latest of the Lottie Parker series
What’s next for you as a writer?
You never know, my first book was about PR, the second now about Personal Finances so we will see what the future holds.
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?
My entire kindle, I can't pick just 3-4.
