Interview with C. M. Wright

What do you read for pleasure?
Anything zombie! Really.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle
Describe your desk
VERY cluttered! But I can tell you exactly where everything is. My hubby cleans it for me occasionally...and then I can't find a thing!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to share my little fantasy worlds with others. And also reading reviews from the people who like my work. Love that!
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean everything to me! THEY are the reason I keep writing. THEY are what pulls me out of writer's block most often. And THEY have my total and complete respect, love, and admiration.
What are you working on next?
I am now working on a new series called Zombie 101 series. This one will be about teens who are suddenly thrown into a world where all the rules they've been taught, all the things they thought they knew, are thrown out the window and devoured by the living dead.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King...always! VC Andrews (RIP!) for her incredible imagination and ability to think up some crazy things, and Dean Koontz. Some indies I've fallen in love with are; Eric R Asher, N Kuhn, Kristen Secorsky, Dovey Mayali Cralk, William Bebb, and Jack Hamlyn to name a very very few.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Nothing inspires me to get out of bed! I hate mornings. What "forces" me out of bed, though, would be my irritating alarm clock and my equally irritating hubby.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I work. Three full-time self-employed jobs. That's it. I work constantly!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Most I discover from my fans who will send me a link to a good zombie book they've read or found. Others I find during promoting other authors at my Author Explosion Event on Facebook. I would love for readers and authors both to join me. Find new authors and books, and play some games and win prizes! Author can sign up for the promotion for either two-day promos, or a full week. All the details are in the description at the top of the event. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/events/560140457379712/?source=1
What's the story behind your latest book?
On Valentine's Day of this year (two days ago as of this interview) several authors and I published a book, which we told no one about beforehand. The title is Heart Attacks: A Valentine's Day Anthology, and the authors who contributed are: Sandra Love, A.R. Von, J.J. DiBenedetto, Kelly J Erickson, A. P. Bartels, Dovey Mayali Cralk, and Tim Miller....Oh! And me too, of course!

It's a collection of short horror stories with a Valentine theme (except for J.J.'s, which is the first chapter of his incredible Dream Series first book.) All of my work can be found at my website here: http://www.zombieoverload.com/buy-booksebooks-here.html
