Interview with Esther X

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Well, when i'm not writing, i put on some earplugs and jam to my favorite songs. Sometimes i fantasize about my book and other books i've not published yet. Sometimes i draw or read. Anything that keeps my creative mind busy and happy
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, but not so clearly. I wrote it when i was five years old and it was about this beautiful princess(me) who just wanted to be happy and loved
Describe your desk
Very busy.
Lots of papers and books, books with different things in it. And of course my trusty laptop and phone
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Well, I grew up in a family where you have to do the things your elders tell you to do. But I didn't accept that. I published Arianna with much difficulty and without my parents knowing, but I feel I did the right thing. Arianna is really important to me, and I suffered to get the book done, so it was under must for it to be published. And it was, thank God
When did you first start writing?
I actually started writing when I was about 5. Was very young then, but I just enjoyed it along with singing and drawing.
I guess I'm just that girl with a lot of talents. And love
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well Arianna is just the manifestations of one of my fantasies. Fantasies I had when nobody would talk to me because people were to busy to do so. I thought of this brave girl who would do anything for love, so I named her Arianna and brought her to life in my book
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Just the passion of writing books and reading books by great authors. I was just like "hey, I wanna be a famous author one day" and it began
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I'm not so sure about success, but smashwords has helped me a lot. Because there were times were I'd think about how to get my book to the world and get a headache from it. Smashwords has been a blessing and I'm so blessed to be here.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy for me is getting the book done. I just feel like I've finally accomplished something great
What do your fans mean to you?
If I have, my fans are like my world. They share my love and hold me sacred, they stick up for me and are ready to fight for me.
They mean the world to me
Love you all
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The zeal to succeed and become great. And to achieve all my goals, so I can make the one I love happy
What do you read for pleasure?
Yes I do read for pleasure, you know, to relax my brain when I'm done reading a whole chemistry textbook
What are you working on next?
Well my next piece of art is going to be a special one
It's called Rockstar Lifestyle.
And it's all about four teens working hard to be successful musicians while facing the troubles of teenage life
Gonna be a blast
