Interview with Reatha Beauregard

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My cat simply doesn't allow me to stay in bed all day. Does that count as inspiration?
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
My husband and I do a lot of traveling. We love going to the mountains.
How do you approach cover design?
My approach is to leave it to the pros! I think that works best for some of us writers.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read mostly science fiction and fantasy, a lot of urban fantasy--where elements of the fantastic make an appearance in our everyday world. I like all sorts of books, but those are the ones I find myself picking up.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a tablet, and it's serviceable. When I do read eBooks, it comes in handy.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I'm still learning. I'm thinking about starting a blog, but I admit I'm a little intimidated by some of the latest apps and programs out there. They seem very complicated.
Describe your desk
That's an easy one. It's very together. Everything has a place. I can't work without everything being where it belongs, so I keep it that way to keep from having to get things together before I can start my writing.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing for quite some time, probably ever since I was a little girl. I've done ghostwriting before as well, but this is my first step into the big leagues of indie publishing. It's fun and scary, and I'm just happy to be here.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well, you'll have to get the book! Look for Antebellum Soul: Here & Now coming soon!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I got tired of selling my stories to other people. I wanted to be able to hold my own books in hand. Luckily, I ran into a team of like-minded people, and we're enjoying the ride together--ups and downs and all!
