Interview with R.K Coventon

What is your writing process?
Hahaha! the question implies I have a process, I'll try my best to explain what drives me to write.

Well I was going through a particularly nasty bout of PTSD depression, when all which felt all encompassing and suffocating. I have had been fighting with this ever since I was a child, and when nothing else seemed to work and when my thoughts came to suicide the one of the few things that stopped me was that I still felt as though I had a story to tell, and if I were to do anything like that I would be dishonoring myself in that sense. So I decided to sit down at the computer and write the stories down. The funny thing is, the more I wrote, the less broken I felt inside, and then I didn't end up stopping, writing along with my loved ones really helped me.

Then NaNoWriteMo came across, and I wrote 50,000 words in a month! and since then I have gotten myself into a routine of writing how many words I do a day, my general goal is to do 5,000 + words a week.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote, wow does that bring me back! I began writing stories back in 2006, and it involved a wolf, a tamed fox and a massive serpent! It had plot holes, massive, gaping plot holes I am sure one could easily drive a minivan into!

The first story I actually completed is "A Clockwork lullaby" I wrote it when I was 14! It is available in my Smashwords store for free. While it is far from flawless, this little story will always have a place in my heart.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Of course I do!

Rowan of Rin by Emily Rodda. I realized from that moment on I loved the idea of escaping reality and into the world of fantasy.
What are you working on next?
Oh! oh! Fun! The current story I am working on is called Conjoined (working title).

Its about a couple in the 1980's elope and have a pair of twins. Unfortunately one of the twins is a still born, wracked with sadness and despair are approached by a strange, supernatural being which offers the young couple an impossible opportunity of a life time; half the life of their living daughter to save their son.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Netflix, videogames, reading (which author doesn't read?) and funnily enough, LARPing ( Live Action Roleplaying).
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Well the actual process of writing down is just a means to an end to me, what I really enjoy is telling a story and writing is the best way to do it.
What do your fans mean to you?
I have... fans? Wow. Well... I write because I feel that there's a story to be told, and if there's people out there (f-fans OWO ) whom enjoy and support my hobby, well it mean a lot.

really it does, I never thought in my life I would make it this far, and I sincerely thank you all for your support.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Getting out of bed is always a challenge, I struggle daily with mental illness everyday and sometimes the world outside my room is terrifying and confusing to me.

But that's why I do it.

If no one ever pushed themselves beyond their comfort then there would be no stories and no heroes, No Harry Potter, No Bilbo Baggins and no Katniss Everdeen, characters (and people) push themselves to strive to better themselves and to put themselves out there to maybe help another.
How do you approach cover design?
Well thus far I have done all of my covers (exception is A demon and His Grace) I just go with my gut, there's not much a mystery for this question honestly.
What do you read for pleasure?
Furiously Happy is one of my Go-Tos. Its a fantastic read and frankly, very funny. and I highly recommend it to anyone who just needs a little pick me up or simply feels the need to laugh.
Describe your desk
Um....uber messy.

I have two screens, usually one playing some video, a toothless and Amaterasu pop vinyl and a whole bunch of assorted papers and other stuff.

I should probably clean it.

I'll probably do it tomorrow.
