Interview with Kristy Gibs

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am a wife, mother of 2, have a full time job and currently pursing my MBA, my plate is over flowing and I try and fit writing in whenever I have a free minute!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Most of the e-books I read are recommended! I love reading books by up-and-coming authors.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
yes! and it was pretty terrible but it started the creative juices flowing and it is something I will cherish always.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Honestly, I use my phone 90% of the time and my Ipad/Kindle the other 10%. My phone is always with me so it's easy to open up the app quickly and get a few pages in when I have a few minutes.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Social Media has been great- Twitter, Instagram, Facebook- also word of mouth by fellow authors. It's a really great community to be part of.
Describe your desk
Desk.. what's that? I have a laptop that basically gets shuffled around the house to wherever I can find a quiet corner to get some work done.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I had always wanted to be a writer. As I approached my 30th birthday publishing was on my bucket list. After some research it seemed that indie was the way to go and I am so happy with my choice.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I have just recently joined Smashwords but so far, I am loving it and will soon be getting my other books on it.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy is the possibility of giving someone a few hours to escape into another world. Reading was always something I loved and it got me through some difficult times so my hope, is that if one of my books makes even one person happy, I am doing my job.
What are you working on next?
Next, is book 2 in the Moretti Brothers series and I have an MC series in the works too.
Who are your favorite authors?
Wow, I have several but I owe my love for romance from Nora Roberts and Nicholas Sparks. They opened my eyes to world of romance and gave me the itch to write.
