Interview with Danielle Gianni Corrick

When did you first start writing?
I started writing in 1997 when my younger brother committed suicide, as I needed an outlet...so I turned to the pen to release all of my demons. Writing this story saved my life! Although I placed the story tucked away in a drawer for ten years...I can at least say I finally finished it. The story in 1997 was much different, than what it has become today...as I most definitely didn't change the core of the story, however I added flare to it since than I guess you could say. Lots of erotic flare! V'''V
What's the story behind your latest book?
Being that I absolutely needed to escape, as I had lost my younger brother to suicide...I decided to make suicide the core of my story. In the story DRACULA vol. 3...you will read about a suicide that has taken place in 1865. Although, I do not know why my brother did such an act...in my story I used suicide was almost as an accident, as It shouldn't have happened due to false knowledge. The many scenes of erotica...is me just having fun with words, and enjoying the interactions of characters, the up and down emotions and feelings, the sensual pleasures and pain! I wanted to leave a taste in someone's mouth when they were done reading. I wanted to leave a unique flavor. I hope I have accomplished such. V'''V
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Since I began writing my story 'AN EROTIC VAMPIRE ROMANCE' in 1997...I actually had no intention on publishing it at all at that time. However after having the unfinished story sit inside of my drawer for ten years...my best friend had asked my to finish my story, which was originally called 'THE DRAGON'S BLOOD'. I decided to finish the story, and had my best friend read it through...she fell in love. I gave it to a few others...as their reaction was just as positive. This gave me inspiration! I thought...hey, what do I have to lose? I had fun creating my story, I enjoyed every minute of my escape...why not share it with the world, and here we are! Me and you. V'''V
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is that I can be anyone I want to be. I can be a creature If I desire to be one, or I can even be a different gender if I really want to! I enjoy jumping into characters. V'''V
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean as much to me as my family. My family is my family of course, however I consider my fans a part of my family! If a fan shows me love, and warmth...you can bet I will give it back, which means there is now a bond. V'''V
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I love life! LIFE INSPIRES ME to get out of bed every day! V'''V
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love spending time with my family! xo V'''V
What is your writing process?
When I start to write a story...I have about a million and one notes in front of me in composition note books! I keep on going and writing notes until one note attaches to another note, and a story begins to really take off and unfold. This is when I take my notes and now put them in somewhat of an order. I write...as if I was putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Once I put my notes in somewhat of an order...I than transfer my somewhat of an outline to the computer and start saving on file. V'''V
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I find FACEBOOK and TWITTER have been the most helpful marketing avenues for me thus far. V'''V
