Interview with Sheena Hutchinson

What are you working on next?
Seraphina Book 2 of course. Then there's two other series' I'm working on that I'm pretty excited about. One is a spin off of the Seraphina Series, the other is completely different its a young adult dystopian book thats turning out pretty awesome, but I'm a little biased check out a sneak peek on my website www.SheenaHutchinson.com
Who are your favorite authors?
Right now, Cassandra Claire, Lauren Oliver, Chanda Hahn, Veronica Roth, JK Rowling,... Just to name a few
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working a regular 9-5 (Much like Sera), Reading or Modeling
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Honestly, Amazon and Goodreads suggestions of things I may like. They are eerily accurate
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yup, In high school I wrote a bunch of short stories that were about three pages long and all ended in happily ever after! I've come a long way since then!
What is your writing process?
I don't know if I necessarily have one. I start with an idea or in my case a dream and I write it down and expand on it until its a story. I don't outline or anything, I dive right into writing paragraphs then I have to go back and extensively edit later.
How do you approach cover design?
I have a ton of ideas rolling around my head, I'm very creative. I had the idea of my first cover to be me (or Sera) next to my own tombstone indicating a death or rebirth of some kind. I thought that would grab some attention especially with the subtitle Awakening.
What do you read for pleasure?
Fantasy, Romance, Dystopian.. Mostly Young Adult novels. I don't know why but something about them I relate to so much more.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love my Kindle, best birthday present ever!
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Social Media and word of mouth, I have great friends :)
Describe your desk
It's either a table at Starbucks, desk at the library, or my laptop in my lap on my bed.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The Seraphina Series all started with a dream. I have these crazy dreams and this one came after I was reading a lot of Fallen Angel themed books. It was about a Guardian Angel that fell in love with his subject... and the rest is history..
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The story, I know I had something good going and with the advice and support from my family and friends I made it happen.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy is hearing that people besides me like the story and want more. It makes it so much more exciting and enjoyable for me to know that I have people that love the characters as much as I do.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything! I mean friends and family have to say they like it, but for strangers to give me compliments means the world to me :) I love to read and respond to each and every one! Feel free to contact me through my website, on twitter, or my Facebook page! I'd love to hear what you think!
