Interview with Brianna Summers

Who are your favorite authors?
A lot of fantasy authors but not the new ones. C.S. Lewis and J.R. Tolkien are right up there. William Diehl for his "Primal Fear" series, that was cool. George Orwell, William Goldberg, Ray Bradbury, Aldous Huxley there are so many it's hard to pin it down to just a few.
What do your fans mean to you?
They are the inspiration and motivation to keep going. Their positive feedback validates my belief in myself that I can make it as an author in the long term. It's great.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
some would argue poorly lol. I spend way too much time playing video games, watching movies, television and reading. Listening to music. I think you need a good combination of real world smarts or 'street smarts' as well as 'book smarts' to make it as a writer. It's a combination of real experience and imagination, everything I read or watch helps my imagination so it all helps. You never know where your next story idea is going to come from after all.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
random searches depending on what's on my mind at the time or sometimes recommendations from friends online.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not entirely, I think there's definitely a learning curve with writing. If I looked at my first story I'd probably be embarrassed about the quality of it. I definitely think I'm improving as I go though.
What is your writing process?
storyboard what I'm writing, think about beginning, middle and end and how it's going to flow. What happens along the way, what about subplots and twists and turns. I think writing parodies helps with this as you begin by studying the original and learning that way.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I do remember reading 1984 at school and Animal Farm and I think they were pretty profound pieces of writing. It opened my eyes to the depth of a great author's imagination.
How do you approach cover design?
Depends on the genre, with a parody I start with the original and then adapt it. With my own designs I use models and try and find something that suits the mood of the content / genre.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I use twitter to post links to my books and I have 5000 followers and growing so that certainly helps.
Describe your desk
It's chaos, pure chaos but that's the conditions under which I do my best work.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The thought of not knowing what lies ahead, every day is an adventure and an opportunity to try new things I think.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
The Percy Jackson books because I love the Greek myths, Fight Club after my friend Mikey Lee Ray put me on to it because it's anarchy in book form and the world is crazy. I Am Legend because it's a classic and reads so well. Warm Bodies because I like the style the author uses oh and The Game by Neil Strauss (another recommendation) as it was funny and crazy.
What do you read for pleasure?
adult fiction, thrillers, suspense, spy novels anything with action in it I guess.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
my kindle
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like the independence of being my own publisher and not being locked in to any one mainstream publisher, like being able to write whatever I want.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I think it helps in that it has given me an audience I wouldn't normally have, people who are able to access my work in a variety of different formats definitely helps as well.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting positive feedback and knowing that people are enjoying my work is what motivates me, makes me happy and keeps me going.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Moved a lot while I was growing up, lived in New York City, Miami and also Las Vegas. This has influenced my writing because I am able to write about a whole different world of experiences that maybe some people don't know about.
When did you first start writing?
Probably in school I guess, can't remember exactly when but I've always had stories to tell and I've always enjoyed telling them.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Not sure at this stage but I am exploring certain taboo areas and topics, we'll see how it turns out.
