Interview with Ipam

Current stuff????
New e-novels:

I added the Genetics String of triology: The Noah Gene, The Atlantis Curse and The Atlantis Core.

Starra is finally here! Yee-haw!!! Enjoy the final novel!

The Starlit Sequence has begun with God Code, Miss Starlit; Missed Starlit, Missing Starlit: a murder mystery.

Trig is a teen love story with Gloriette and non-friends seeking a beau and baby.

The Quartet has been removed. I am updating and compressing the stories into five novels instead of too much and creating new cover pictures. They will return soonest...per Tom Sawyer, the third.

Have a nice second, minute, hour, morning, afternoon, evening, day and night, too!!!

Thank you for reading all my e-novels. I really enjoy writing for you and enjoy your day plus night!!!
What's the story behind your latest book?
Fairy Tale is a sweet story of fun and fantasy with magical elements set on Planet Earth. My brain cells click with new ideas making me write out the storyline before I implore.

God Code is a murder mystery which will be presented several e-novels. This story has been boiling and brewing inside my sub-conscious for months while filling in both the places and people.

And I have not forgotten Starra. She is coming, ya'll.

My first love are outer space novels. So, coming back to my first love is like jumping back into that motorcycle crash, when I hit the dang horse barn door from an out of control wheelie. No lie! I lived, thou to tell the tale and write it all down in a new enovel. (hehehehe!)

Have fun on this day 'cuz it ain't being repeated, ever, again! Yee-haw!!!

I ride the horse towards the barn for his oats and nap. A true cowgirl never rides into the sunset. It blinds your eyeballs! Duh!

Everyone enjoy my e-novels more are coming you're way. Yee-haw!!!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Well....I am a big sci-fi (old spelling) fan of Star Wars and Star Trek. I wrote a small science fiction novelette involving Starra which was about 20 pages and tried to post on a sci-fi blog. It was rejected, sadly. So I did the next thing...published it myself....Yee-haw! I find I enjoy writing and developing new characters and new plots just as much as reading someone else's book.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Yes, to me....it allows me to share my world of vivid imagination with other folks, since I can see that some of my e-novels are read by people from USA, Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain and other places....as well. All my e-novels are free to anyone that dares to read 'em. Since I have a daytime paying job as a computer programmer...(real sci-fi adventure, there). I put some of my selfie and job into the e-novel called Eat My Bullet with the female computer programmers working for Cyber Crimes in Birmingham, Alabama. But the rogue programmer gets into trouble then tries to get out using her neurons and computer skills.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I get to live the pretend roles of all those folks that I create. I find...that I must become part of that particular character to develop their lines and hand movements inside the plot of the play, creating the e-novel. I guess kinda like acting...but using my ten finger pads instead of my pink tongue.
What do your fans mean to you?
Awesomeness!!! I appreciate and thank you for downloading my e-novels. I write them for you to enjoy, to cuss, to laugh, and to cry. I thrill at the seeing number of downloads sky rocket to the moon, when I publish a new e-novel. I also enjoy reading and always look forward to another author's new book when it is available during it debut, so I get to experience the same type of feeling as Indy writer.

I hope the reader is giddy...like me for the new or re-read story of my e-novels as I am with writing it, yall!

Enjoy your day! It ends at midnight!
What are you working on next?
I am completing The Quartet series. Then, I promise to finish Starra and Rann. And, it be real good, ya'll! That particular work of art is long, time consuming while exhuasting both my manicured fingernails and sharp neuons, since the writing style is unique. I am trying a new writing style for some of the newer e-novels, also.

I have thoughts of a new book with a bad villian in the USA (in Birmingham, since I live here)...killing off good innocent folks. The new hero figures out the puzzle using clues from the Bible, because the bad villian left some wood and stones, hanging around.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Alien Princess is the first story, since I am a science fiction fan. It took three years to write. I am working on the remaining sage and it gets good. Then I wrote Unlearn about angels and demons living and struggling on Planet Earth.
What is your writing process?
I start writing with a blue ink pen in a right hand while scribbling on a notepad of real paper, cuddled up with legs folded on the sofa with a cold 'coke' on my left and a bag of potato chips on my right. I believe my imagination works best with food between my toothies, chewing out my characters' adventures. I always start out with my e-novel's physical description of bodies and first names of my major and minor characters, so my vivid mind can walk and talk with them. I am absolutootly paranoid about giving my characters names and the place that they will live, work, and play. Since I live in the great State of Alabama with mountains and beaches and the space shuttle and cotton crops. I find determining the name of the e-novel the most fun...like naming your kitten or puppy or baby, since it will last foreverly. When I write a book I always come up with the ending, first. I don't know why. I just do. Then, I start with the beginning of the e-novel, jump around with the characters doing different stuff until I find a flow. That's why I write in blue ink on paper. I possess hundreds of sheets with drawings, ideas, and plots so I can visual the story.
How do you approach cover design?
O! O! O! It is so easy. I cannot draw. I wish I could. So, I type the name of the e-novel in bold black letters and sign it my original pen name signature. Sometimes, I do create robot-like stick people on the cover like I did for Redneck Bang.

On the cover of Rush, rush...away, an talented young artist drew the angel and angel prints on the cover.

And, I designed and colored the cover for Alien Princess, since the e-novel is about a girl who is the only Earthling living on an alien planet, in an alien galaxy. I thought the funky crown would be fun and funny for Lady Starra.
