Interview with Randi Lyons

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
When looking for good ebooks I use three services mainly. I use Smashwords, Bookdaily and Amazon Kindle. Using these three websites guarantees I can always find something good to read.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes it was a story I wrote in fourth grade called shrew-devil. It was about a teacher who's students kept disappearing. I am currently expanding on it to make it a full children's book.
What is your writing process?
I start writing on a novel when a good idea comes to mind. Then I search for music that inspires ideas about the story. For example the song "faraway" by nickleback is the one I used to help write atomic fire natures fury part one. Part two to hit shelves later this year.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The book that inspired my love of writing and reading was"THE THIEF OF ALWAYS" By Clive Barker. I could close my eyes and pictures every detail he described. I knew then I wanted to do that when I grew up.
How do you approach cover design?
I really don't think about cover design. I let the idea come to me. After I have finished the story I reread it and whatever image comes to mind is the base for my cover.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
This is a hard question to answer. But if I had to choose.
1. The thief of always-Clive barker
2. Everything's eventual-stephen king
3. It-stephen king
4.the unrestrained series-se Lund
5. Goosebumps series-rl stone
These books are each written in a way that they draw you in to the stories. You feel like you are a part of it and at least for me, each book left me breathless and feeling emotions I didn't have when I started reading them. Plus each book I couldn't stop reading until I finished it all in one day.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read everything. I like fantasy like harry potter, adult like fifty shades of grey. Right down to stephen king and Shakespeare and Poe. I love it all.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use a Fire it is portable and I can hold several books on it as well.
Describe your desk
Messy. I have notes on it for seven different books right now.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing poetry and short stories since I was 6. I published by first poem at the age of 14.
