Interview with Vee Vanover

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Anything by Amelia Hutchins, S.L. Jennings, Natalie G. Owens and Addison Cain. These ladies write amazing stories with even more awesome female lead characters
What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly paranormal romance, occult and supernatural books
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle! What else is there?
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I have no idea. This is new to me so I will probably use as much facebook as I can
Describe your desk
My dining room table. Seriously who thinks of these questions?
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the middle of the ghetto. Right around the time of the Rodney King riots and Los Angeles Police Department killing people left and right. I wouldn't say this was what influenced my writing, as this isn't what traumatized me. Adulthood is what took my brain to hell
When did you first start writing?
Originally when I was 13. I have always had this ability to feel deeply and to feel others pain so it's not easy to always relay that verbally
What's the story behind your latest book?
This book just kind of sprang to life. I am from Los Angeles, but I ended up moving across the country when I married my husband and I can remember having all these awful feelings and homesick like all of the time. Anger and regret was a huge part of my everyday life when I first got here and just one day a voice popped in my head and then wala!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Being broke. Isn't that why anyone would choose it?
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
This is my first song and dance with Smashwords, so I am hoping for this to be a huge success
