Interview with Lexie Renard

What is your writing process?
I get ideas anywhere and everywhere, and dictate notes into my phone. (I'm sure my neighbours must wonder who I'm talking dirty with!) I usually do the actual writing in the middle of the night with a small glass of tequila or white wine. Editing is done with a giant mug of coffee, and hitting the publish button involves an odd little dance of joy.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm often downtown at lovely sleazy bars watching lovely sleazy bands and chatting with lovely sleazy musicians.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am currently developing three new stories:
Paradise Fantasies - Secrets from the Sex Club. Two young ladies go to a swingers club, and I'm sure you can guess what they get up to.
My Neighbour's Basement. A young lady comes home from university to discover that the next door neighbour she's been crushing on for years has a secret BDSM dungeon.
Guitaristitis - no cure for this sexual addiction. It's a little known disorder that affects some women - they just cannot stop hitting on guitarists!

My goal for 2018 is to write 50 stories in 52 weeks. Is this possible? Let's find out! lexierenard.com
Describe your desk
Oh my. My laptop is on a stand on a drafting table covered in wine silk, with a large extra monitor to the left. There are speakers on either side near the back, and a pile of sticky notes, scribbles, notebook, pens, and phone to the left of the laptop. It's a mess. If you like to clean and are okay with being paid in raunchy stories, please contact me.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Every time I see that somebody has purchased a story, I get a little thrill. Thinking about my writing being enjoyed is amazing.
A close second is hitting that Publish button when a new story is ready to go online. It's nice to have that feeling of accomplishment.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It was likely from the wonderful works of Dr. Seuss. I was a voracious reader from a very young age. Books and stories are escapism - portals to other realms. I loved fantasy very early on.
How do you approach cover design?
I studied similar books in my genre, and took note of what I liked and what I didn't. Clear text and a clear visual should make the point. Fussy and fancy doesn't show up well when shrunk down to a wee preview.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Wow. Tough question. This is just off the top of my head...

Westlake Soul, by Rio Youers. It's the only book that made me cry, scream, and throw it across the room when I finished.

The Rainbow Cadenza, by J. Neil Schulman. Futurism, sci-fi, art, sex, and lasers. Very unusual, mind expanding story.

The Savage Girl, by Alex Shakar. Futurism, trend spotting, and general weirdness.

Passage, by Connie Willis. Crying and shaking at the end. Wow, this book rattled me.

Everything by Terry Pratchett and Christopher Moore.
What do you read for pleasure?
Sci-fi, fantasy, spec fic, and random things that friends suggest. I know a LOT of writers, and my "to read" pile from people I know is getting scary.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Strangely, hitting the right combo of Twitter hashtags usually leads to one story sold. I'm still experimenting. I hope that building my email list will be helpful in the long run. I'll be sending longer samples to my email list to keep them happy!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Old iPad running Kindle.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the country in the middle of nowhere, and always longed to be a city girl. There was nothing to do out there, so I read and day dreamed. Now that I'm in the big city (Toronto) I am hopefully making some of those daydreams come true! Come to think of it, I have a lot less time for reading now though.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote my first poem when I was five. I wrote my first dirty stories in grade nine, about band members that my friends and I all had crushes on. No, I will never reveal which band it was.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I needed a way to force myself to write on a regular basis. Apparently once you have 50 stories online, you actually start making real money. That's just a bonus, and I'm curious to see what will happen.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It's been darn handy for spreading my books out across the planet. The more eyes that might find me, the better! (Hmm. That just sounds stalkerish.)
