Interview with Rose A Grey

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I think the best way to do that is to look at the books that I have already read online and see what comes up as similar suggestions. It can also be nice to just look at what is new and give it a go.
I recently read an amazing ebook called Darkling by K.M Rice which I spotted as a suggestion after looking at buying the film Crimson Peak.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When I started primary school I would write the same story over and over about taking a trip to a shop to buy lollies. The last version I wrote of it was much longer and more detailed (as far as five year old's can do) thank the first version.
What is your writing process?
For short stories I sit down and have a think about the main character and what situation I want her to go through. For anything longer I will take a few days to write out a detailed outline. If I can't think of how a story should be structured I take the structure from a classic novel, write it down, and change everything until its my own story.
I also like to sit outside in the garden and sip coffee.
How do you approach cover design?
I went to the website fiverr for my cover design then using Photoshop did a couple of finishing touches to polish it. If I could afford it I would buy a subscription to a stock image website, but on fiverr the cover designer has that available already.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read all sorts, mostly novels, fantasy or horror, or supernatural romance. I do prefer books with a female main character. I also like the occasional graphic novel, and classic fiction especially from the Gothic and romantic eras.
Describe your desk
My desk is my back garden, or my living room sitting next to the fire, so anywhere that I can lie down with my laptop ballanced on my stomach works for me.
