Interview with Nubi

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are celebrities to me. Why? Simple, because without them, I wouldn't be the person I am. I wouldn't be known at all, so THEY are the real celebrities. It's not about me, it's about them. If I didn't write things that entertained them, they wouldn't be reading.
What are you working on next?
I'm actually working on a couple titles right now, they are both in the series of Bittersweet. One is, "My Daddy Is Famous" and "Confessions of a Mini Mogul Momma".
Who are your favorite authors?
My fave authors are Eric Jerome Dickey, Zane, Sophie Kinsella. However, I read a lot of business and self help books, lol.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My daughter, my will to be great, successful, helpful, inspiring, and a benefit to others.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Writing of course, but writing for books and for music, studying for my degree, being my daughter's taxi (lol), watching movies, thinking of ways to be better and helping those that I can.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
By searching subject titles of what I'm looking for. I read the excerpts and decide if it sounds good to me to read.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, well it was more of a poem. I was in middle school and entered it on a whim after having an assignment in class. It was part of a national contest and I actually won one of the finalist spots to go to D.C. and read my poem in front of others. However, I never made it to D.C. to do that, but they did publish the poem in their Anthology Volume. If I remember correctly, the poem was entitled, To Believe or To Be? I'm sorry, age and life has taken that memory and I didn't keep the paperwork on it. Go figure huh?
What is your writing process?
Well, I jot down thoughts and ideas that come to me for my books. I do it in order of the chapters that I want though, and add new chapters as I go along. Somewhere in the mix a book title comes to me. I mull over it for a few days, bounce it off some people to see their reaction, to see if it's what I'm looking for and begin to structure it until it's complete. Sometimes I get the book cover image before it's finished as well.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. I still like to reread it at least once a year. It's a very trying story in my opinion. I an remember crying the first time I read it. Not exactly sure why but I bought it for school to read and ended up keeping it instead of trashing it like other students did when we finished it.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Think And Grow Rich, $100 Startup, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, Healing Chakras, and Entrepreneur's Start Up Your Own Personal Concierge Service. They just resonate within me so deeply and so matter-of-fact. I can go back to them time and time again and the information stills appears fresh.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My kindle app and my audible app (for when I am driving or riding on a long trip).
Describe your desk
Organized clutter for the moment...
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind all of my books is my own personal life with a bit of fantasy thrown in the mix. Fantasy in the sense of, some words or actions added to give more color to the story.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My friends did and my desire to share my stories with other.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Hearing the feedback of others, their ability to connect with the story
What do you read for pleasure?
Some of everything
