Interview with Carey Milton

Describe your desk
Cramped with style.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I am able to relay my most internal inspirational being from mind to body. Vocally, words for me don't compare or come close to portraying what I really need to say. I have an overactive, empathetic spirit constantly in search of unearthing a rhythmic flow of rhyme in time with my ever evolving soul and mind. Voila!
What do your fans mean to you?
I can smile wider on the inside knowing that my passion to succeed as a writer is noticed world wide and that for me is the highest of rides. So I will take this, as I would any other opportunity to acknowledge their constant encouragement and positive, inspiring feedback, right back atcha !!
What are you working on next?
I have almost perfected the third installment of my poetry books, 'Enigma I Imagine', which basically covers all basis (and then some). Acrostics, Haiku's, and many other unique and intriguing pieces await patiently for my finger to press the publish button but...
I have been desperately trying to finish one book at a time and at the moment my full length novel...'Twelve' has climbed aboard once again. Two years in the making, Twelve will certainly be my greatest writing achievement. All I will say for now is this book takes insanity to a whole other level. Beyond the brink of life, extinct, in a coma with a genius diploma...The narrator invites the reader to sit, side by side an emotional ride...What could she possibly hide inside?
Now the mind of a maniac, and you, collide.
On another, more sedated note I have also completed a children s' book awaiting finalization.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Simply the fact that I have many books to publish.
Upon completion, Ill start once again,
as I finish with relish and a Cheshire grin.
Gaining my lifelong achievement pin,
Whenever I'm writing I'll strive to win.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I was about 6 or 7 and I wrote it for my grandparents.
It was a whole page long and I called it 'Zapple', the two inch dog.
I had to start somewhere..haha
What is your writing process?
Pick a word, any word...okay now try to rhyme that word with another that still relates to the first.
Keep a pen and paper handy because you never know when that final word will...
Sprout from seed.
A needless weed,
Indiscreet, a secret wheat.
Ready for the readers reap.
Upon my page
Sewn as sage,
Plant a plot from early stage.
Empathy plays part with my compassionate heart, as I feel for real,
knowing end before start.
How do you approach cover design?
As an artist I really wanted to post my pieces with my poems.
Alas I couldn't get the right contrast so I googled one word images such as 'Drake', then went into 'search tools' and put in 'exact size' 1600 x 2400. This method proved to make my choices limited but publisher and photo shop allowed my mind to venture, creating a whole new picture. Now I love to create and design all my own cover work.
