Interview with Robin Rance

What are you working on next?
I am working on a story based on the events of a friends life. It's titled, Anguish.
I've also started writing a children's book, 'About Jack.'
Who are your favorite authors?
My very first author that started my addiction was Edgar Rice Burroughs.
My father and mother bought many of his series home for us to read. Nothing has been the same in my life since.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children and my grandchildren have always inspired me to do more and to be a better example for them.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, working and a little bit of General Hospital time.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look for favorite authors and I look at the blurbs to find the ones that interest me.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it is one that I am working on edits for now. I'm hoping it will be ready in the fall.
What is your writing process?
I just finished the sequel to Street Wise, titled, Street Surrender.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, I wanted to keep reading. It was a fantasy and it was the best way fo me to escape.
How do you approach cover design?
I do my own covers. I start writing the story first, and after that I look through my own pictures for something that grabs me.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Difficult to come up with only five.
First would have to be, Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This is the story that lit my imagination.
Second, Laiden's Daughter by Suzan Tisdale. She brought back my love for reading when I hadn't read for a number of years.
Third, Outlander by Diana Galbaldon. The first book of the most incredible set of books I've read.
Fourth, and fifth I haven't found yet, but my book Street Wise because it was my creation has to be one of them.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read my author friends books for pleasure. I don't have the time to do that like I used to.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle reader or kindle app on phone.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
