Interview with J Beare

Who are your favorite authors?
One of my most favorite has to be J.R.R Tolkien. I absolutely love fantasy but, I also like a bit of mystery. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is also one of my most favorite authors.
What is your writing process?
Well, I absolutely have to make a list of notes and such (describing the plot and setting etc). I would also study more into a certain thing if I need to. Then, I would make a draft of the story (checking if I made any kind of mistake). Finally, I would copy the editions to the final copy.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean a lot to me! They show passion and support to me. I love that!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting to see people's reviews and critiques.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that I have a special talent. Writing!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend most of my time playing the piano and violin, and acting.
Have you ever had a bad case of "writers-block"?
Oh, yes! It was really bad. I had a huge headache and I could barely pick up a pencil.
Yeah...
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I usually have friends that recommend me to read them.
How do you approach cover design?
I mainly look at the description first to get the central idea of it. Then use Paint.net to create drawings or photo-manipulations. Done!
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on a fictional romance story, but I wouldn't want to give to much away, would I?
What do you read for entertainment?
I usually head over to Wattpad and read some fan-fictions. Most of them are pretty well-written!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town called "Marlboro" (no, not the cigarette company). I feel like it didn't influence my writing at all, to be honest... But, I know for sure my childhood did.
When did you first start writing?
6th grade, me and my friends all had a studyhall together and my friend showed me Wattpad, so I started writing then.
