Interview with Dor North

What are you working on next?
What am I not working on would be more accurate!

I've got plans for a couple of series - one a bit humorous, the other *very* charged and erotic. I've got a follow-up to Hedgewitch planned, as well as an epic, and erotic, fantasy novel.

So, basically I'm thinking about sex all the time.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, obviously. Plus I'm a big gamer, despite being (gasp!) female.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was about my cat of the time. I intended it to be a great travelogue with her having many adventures on the way (I was a big fan of an Australian book called Blinky Bill as a child), but I quickly got bored so had her get scared by a bird and run back into the house again.
What is your writing process?
One word in front of the other, string them together with punctuation.

Redo until better.
How do you approach cover design?
I have a very particular look I want to achieve which means I can spend hours trying to find the right image to use. I don't want the models' faces, and I don't want anything that's too "glamour", but I want it to make clear to the viewer this is *erotic* without a heap of nekkidness.

The right typeface is important too and sometimes I'll use a font but make adjustments to it to get it looking just right. The colour is a struggle too, because a flat colour can look too ... erm ... flat. Plus it's important it stands out - but not my sticking a pale gradient behind it because I think that looks naff.
