Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I written several stories but only published one. I like to create romance stories and humor so I tried combining both. My first ebook (How I Met Nikki) was written for myself at the beginning, but now that I reread it, I think it’s a story worth sharing and I hope it’ll bring a smile to the readers face.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
How I Met Nikki is a book that was inspired by several video games like Huniepop, Va-11 Hall-A and Katawa Shoujo. The name of the Heroin (Nikki) is directly from the game Huniepop and her personality is also based on this same character; she still have many differences with the original one though, she’s way more innocent.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I tend to but a lot of suspension points and not enough comas. I’m trying to improve those points every time I write. I use online services make the text cleaner and more readable.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I don’t read much but there’s an author of which I never skip a book; NisiOisiN. He’s the author of the famous Monogatari Series and I love the equilibrium between story, humor and interesting characters. If I ever become a novelist, I would like to make something as funny as his work.
What are you working on now?
I began to work on another romance. I don’t know if I’ll ever publish it to be honest since I only write when I really want to. Sometimes I find ideas and just can’t go to sleep before writing them, this is how I began writing How I Met Nikki and this is how I began to write this new romance too.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I have no idea. It’s my first time publishing a book and I’m totally lost. I love the feeling of knowing that you don’t know anything and can only improve.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write your ideas, always. Who knows when this weird idea you had will taking a nap on a table after a party. Install an app on your phone to write them and don’t delete any unless you’re 100% sure it’s bad.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Just do your best. As long as you did your best, you’ve won a bit even if you failed, you did your best after all, you can’t have any regrets with that. Oh, and try to be happy too, that’s important.
What are you reading now?
I’m reading Spice and Wolf, Kubikiri Cycle and rereading the Monogatari Series.
What’s next for you as a writer?
That’s an excellent question, I sadly have no real answer to it as I don’t know. Maybe I’ll continue writing, maybe not, we’ll see what the future brings to us.
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?
Kizumonogatari, Spice and Wolf, The Lord of the Rings and Durarara! probably, if possible the whole set of book if not, just the first ones. But I would probably prefer a smartphone to call for help…
