Interview with Elle A. Rose

I grew up in Upstate New York.
When did you first start writing?
I first started to write about four years ago. Until I sat down to write "Last Teardrop" I'd never thought about being a writer.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind my latest book, which is set to be released Jan 2014, came about after I entered a short story into a Halloween anthology my writing group put together. "Frozen", the short story was a glimpse into the life of Verick Cedar's world. The novel will dig deeper into a world that is nothing like out own.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had a story to tell and I wanted to be able to share it with the world!

Smashwords has been most helpful by allowing my to offer my stories for free.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy I receive from writing is being able to share my stories ( all the crazy thoughts running through my head) with others.
What are you working on next?
My next project will be "Last Teardrop 3" (yet to be titled.) I working on it now.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Sleep, work (my fulltime job. the one that pays the bills the bills for now) and watch tv
What is your writing process?
I sit at the computer and type until I get a mind block. When I get stuck, I do internet searches and check out new releases for books.
How do you approach cover design?
I let my husband handle the designs.
What do you read for pleasure?
YA, Romance, or anything else that catches my interest.
