Interview with Isis Imani

What is your writing process?
Sometimes I dream about certain scenarios or situations. I usually just sit at the computer or use a blank sheet of paper and the ideas just flow. It scares me at times the things I come up with-Isis
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
As I young girl I would sneak and read my mom's Harlequin Romance novels and I fell in love with the way they described things very vividly but also sensually. I knew then that I wanted to be a writer. - Isis
How do you approach cover design?
Imani and I brainstormed what we wanted the cover to look like but when we began to shoot the models they came up with the pose for the book and it was very sexy. We were elated! -Isis
What do you read for pleasure?
I read several different genres. While I am writing I usually try to read nonfiction stories. -Isis
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use my Ipad and read on the Kindle app.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Word of mouth and Facebook! -Isis
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was a young girl, that love for writing prompted me to major in English and become an English teacher. -Isis
What's the story behind your latest book?
Sex Tales is a collection of short stories that were written by us over the course of four months. We just wanted to get those sexy fantasies and stories out of our heads and onto paper. -Isis
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted control over how my book was marketed and published. Also, in my genre it is difficult to get a deal as a new erotica writer. -Isis
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has made it extremely easy to publish an ebook and distribute it to different channels.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I fall in love with my characters and I am sometimes sad when their stories end. I just love bringing new stories to life. -Isis
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are EVERYTHING!!! I love to hear feedback from fans and how my stories made them have a great night or experience! -Isis
What are you working on next?
I am working on a new book, Sweet Indulgences, that will be a a full novel. -Isis
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children, family, and being able to write and do what I love to do.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time reading, being with my children and family, and listening to music.-Isis
