Interview with Chastete A. Delice

How do you approach cover design?
My initial approach was too explicit. Although it is my favorite because my genre is erotica/romance with a twist of supernatural toward the end of the collecion. My current cover design was my idea carried out by V. Young. It's appropriate regarding graphic submission standards.
What was your inspiration for writing this collection?
There are individuals that have sampled my short erotic stories and each of them encouraged me to write this collection. They are my inspiration.
What do you read for pleasure?
My reading material depends on my mood most times. If my mood is dark, a good horror book is intriguing.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Word of mouth marketing has been awesome for me.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
That question is a book in itself. Let's just say that my childhood wasn't a highly recommended one for the majority of individuals I know. I was raised in the south and my less than fortunate experiences have influenced my writing in a very dark, descriptive, painful way. Although, Mina's Cave Collection is not the collection I have chosen to display my dark side in. That collection is definitely a work in progress.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing several years ago. I have experience writing poems that depict abuse, poems based on distrust and lies, ghost writer lyrics for singer's and musicians, both verses and hooks, as well as professional writing.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The opportunity to be heard as I am. The opportunity to be a part of a group of authors that are self motivated and have individual goals and accomplishments to achieve based on their own merit.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
That remains to be seen. Although, the opportunity to share my works with smashwords is greatly appreciated, even more so, having the opportunity to reach a vast majority of new readers is the most exciting thing for me. I look forward to interacting with each of you and improving as a result of your input and suggestions.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Having the opportunity to put myself in the shoes of multiple characters is the greatest joy.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean the world to me. I want to be a part of their lives in an entertaining way. I'd like my written works to be a part of their stress relief. I'd like to relate to them on multiple levels.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on finalizing the next novella in Mina's Cave Collection.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children inspire me to get out of bed every day. They are a gift to me.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Some of them are recommended but I like random selections to read.
Why did you change the cove rof Mina's Cave Collection?
Upon comducting a survey of random people, I determined that it was unanimous that they would be more interested in a book with the current cover which was my initial idea. Therefore, I changed the cover impromptu on Thanksgiving Day, 2015.
