Interview with L.M. McCleary

What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on the next book in the Deserted series due for a December 2015 release date.
What do you read for pleasure?
I'm currently really into the Dark Tower series and the Maze Runner series.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Social media is most likely my most effective marketing tool. It's free, it's used more on a daily basis than anything else out there, and word of mouth is a very effective way to market.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is very therapeutic in my opinion. I enjoy creating, it's very rewarding to see the world you created come together, and seeing your characters come to life.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I'm likely reading. I think as an author,reading is an essential way to hone your craft. Aside from reading, I love music and unwinding with a good video game.
What do your fans mean to you?
In a word, Everything. I am living my dream by becoming a published author and having my work reach the public. I am very conscious of the fact that without fan support, being published would mean nothing. I have the most supportive fans an author could ask for. They buy my books, give reviews, share links to where my books can be found, it's unreal. I'm so grateful.
