So far I have only written one novel, Unsettled: A Novel.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my novel is Unsettled: A Novel. I decided to write Unsettled as a way to express some of my internal thoughts. In life we all go through trying experiences and sometimes they are hard to move past. In Brooklyn and Logan’s case, they are both plagued by secrets. Every person has to be willing to take chances, and make changes. If you can’t do that, then what do you have? You’re just left Unsettled.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I often times come up with different ideas while running errands. I then voice record my thoughts right then and there into my cellphone. It is unusual because I stop mid stride to voice record my thoughts and I get really strange stares.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
This is a hard question. So many people have inspired me that it is simply unfair to list just a few.
What are you working on now?
Right now I am preparing for the release of Unsettled. It is set to release on December 10, 2013. The official cover reveal is also set for November 21, 2013. In addition, I am preparing to write the second installation to the Unsettled Series.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I would have to say that Facebook and Goodreads are two of the best websites I’ve used thus far to promote my novels. Both have provided a nice amount of traffic and publicity for my novel.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
To all the new authors out there, I would say the author world is something you will not fully understand until about a year into your journey.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Well as a budding author myself, I can’t stress enough the importance of networking. When I first approached the idea of writing a novel, I was mortified by the idea of social networking and meeting people face to face. Luckily I was able to meet a few great people early on who showed me the ropes of the author world. I think my exposure to them has made my author experience richer.
What are you reading now?
I am currently reading The Ring Formula: How to Be the Only One He Ever Needs
by Alduan Tartt.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Keep your eyes peeled for the second and third installments of the Unsettled series novels in the spring and summer of 2014!
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 couldn’t possibly pick just three or four books. That is an impossible decision.
