Interview with Madreia

What are your five favorite books, and why?
My all the time favorites are Harry Potter all books, Gone With The Wind three books and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy.
When did you first start writing?
I think it was in 2007 when I wrote my first poems. :)
What's the story behind your latest book?
This is totally cliche and I don't want to talk about it, but ok, here it is: I was listening to Olly Murs's song "Hand on heart" and I thought, why not write a story about a girl, who falls in love with a lovely gentleman, who enchants her indefinitely. At first, they become good friends, and later - when there's something more beautiful - he promises to never break her heart, but he can't do it, nobody could. So he leaves her behind and begins to write - that means, letter from any point in his lives, sharing everything with her - well, almost everything. Isn't it a cliche? :D
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
That my readers will always support me and waiting patiently for several months a new chapter. Also, that excited feeling that arises every time I post. :3
What do your fans mean to you?
The whole world! I love them madly!
What are you working on next?
Currently I'm working on all the stories, but soon to be a new story. :3
Who are your favorite authors?
J.R. Rowling, J.R.R.Tolkien, Stieg Larsson, Margaret Mitchell, Heather Graham, Paulo Coelho and John Green.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Drawing and painting portraits + photography and all type of crafts. :)
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I think it was about Jesse McCartney, because I loved and still love him like crazy. :D
Describe your desk
It is clean and everything is on the table nicely. :)
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Nothing in particular, I just grabbed a pen and paper one day and I started to write. :3
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
So far, it has made ​​me think more about publishing my own book(s). :)
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
That my fans are waiting for me and I can't let them down. :3
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Well, right now, Amazon is one of the e-shops, where I always buy them. :3
What is your writing process?
It's simple: write and publish the damn chapter! They are waiting! :3
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes! This is deep in my heart! :3
What do you read for pleasure?
Any children's books, they are so cute! :3
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the countryside, believing in God and I write to him. That says a lot. :)
What is your favorite book written by you?
Obviously, "Letters to God" because it is so important for me. :3
Do you think that you are friends with a few people due to the fact that you're a writer?
Yes! That's it! I know that some of them wouldn't have my life when I don't write. :3
How long does it take you to write a chapter for one story?
It depends on the story, but overall 4/5 hours because I have to be focused. :)
What language are you writing at the moment?
Estonian and English. I look forward more. ;)
Which writer have had the most impact on your writing?
I don't know, I don't have one. But maybe John Green(?).
What is your favorite writer of poetry?
Maya Angelou and William Shakespeare. They are classics for me. : 3
What kind of sentence do you start your day?
"Good morning, beautiful people! How did you sleep?"
Are you very critical of errors, or they don't bother you, when the story itself is a likable?
Mostly, they disturb me very much, but when the story is good, then I try to look past them. Which doesn't mean that I don't speak of them as an opinion. :p
What kind of writer you are: romantic or adventurous?
I like to think that I am both, though I'm not a romantic. At least not in my writing. :p
What is the best way to get over writer block?
Write, even if it will not come out as it should, because otherwise the thing will increase, so that you can no longer write.
What kind of impression you're left to your fans so far?
About me: very friendly and cheerful person who always helps and never give up, whatever happens. My writing: adventure and love always go hand in hand.
What do you write when it comes to the love between two people?
For me, the thing always ends badly when one of them is not a human or love is too complex to be together. So I will concentrate mainly on their longing for each other. But if they do get together, I will make this short and don't write things too cliché. That's all.
Who will you be if you weren't a writer?
No one! Writing is all for me! :3
