Interview with Faye Brookfield

What do your fans mean to you?
If my fans knew how excited I get when someone chooses to download one of my books, they would feel pretty special.

I feel my heart leap, when I see even one sale and I immediately start imagining them reading it. I wonder what they are thinking and which bits they liked best and what they thought I could do better.

Then I start skulking around the book's thumbnail, hoping they will leave a review.
Every sale is important. Every sale is noted and appreciated.
Why erotica?
Erotica is not the only genre I write, but it's my favourite at the moment.

I've always been an avid reader of erotica. The first time I realised that books could turn you on, I was ten and found one small dirty passage in the 'Jaws' paperback i was reading. I folded the page down, took it to school and showed all my friends. I still remember what that passage said, and how it made me feel.

I've never been aroused by visuals. My girlfriends coo over Brad Pitt, but I'm in love with Jack Reacher!
Or Hal and Roger in the Willard Price books when I was a kid or Rupert Cambell-Black as a teen.

So I write sexy stories for women who feel the same way.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The fact that it's mid-morning and the afternoon is approaching!

I'm not a morning person. I'm convinced I sleep deepest when the rest of the country is getting up.

For a large part of my working life, (30 odd years) I was a professional singer in various rock bands. Gigs finished late and then there was the pack-down and the long drive home. I guess my body clock has set its self in those rhythms and I can't find the correct button to re-set it!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do! When I was 5 years old. I wrote a poem for a school writing competition. The theme we had to write about was 'flies' (Don't ask me why)
I was the youngest entry and I won the competition.
The attention I received was extremely gratifying and I immediately thought I was all that!

I can't remember the whole poem verbatim... (it was 45 years ago!) But I remember the last few lines.

When they see, the leftovers from our tea.
They go, "Hee, hee, hee.."
"What a lovely dinner, in there, just for me."
But I think it's very naughty,
for them to go straight in.
To help themselves to anything,
that Dad put in the bin.

See? Pulitzer prize winning stuff right there. LOL
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading. I devour books. I am a certified speed reader and I always have a device on me so i can read. (Thank goodness for e books. I no longer have to carry a hefty bag of books wherever i go.)

I live on a lifestyle block and there are always animals, lawns, gardens and house work expecting my attention.
What is your writing process?
1. Sit in lazyboy.
2. Place laptop on my knee.
3. Push off my dog who just jumped onto laptop
4. Extend footrest and tilt lazyboy back.
5. Start typing, while keeping a window open for google, so I can research and answer the questions I ask myself along the way.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember aspects of every book I have ever read and I have read MANY!
This makes me pretty well read and I am a font of information on a myriad of topics.

Everybody wants me on their pub quiz team!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I started with a kindle when ebooks first came out but now I prefer my iPad.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I guess we have all travelled the well worn path between publishers, trying to get a book contract.
It's soul-destroying, especially when you receive feedback that your work is good, has merit.. but still, no thank you.

Thank God we are not at their mercy anymore.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Keywords, surfing, reading blurbs and free excerpts.
