Interview with Xavian Gaelle J.

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing to me would definitely be the satisfaction of my readers, that they loved it and would be addicted to it that they would re-read the book yet again.
What do your fans mean to you?
That question 'What do your fans mean to you' Ha! I can't began to explain. I love them so much, they make me stronger as the days pass on, they help me and make me elated at each comment they write. Without them... I would probably stop writing right away! I Love you all, Thanks you guys. Means the world to me and I want you to know that :)
What are you working on next?
I'm working on werewolf and vampire stories. I've somehow became addicted to reading them and the obsession grew and the possibility of writing a book has been growing larger. I already have the preview, the book cover and everything! XD
Who are your favorite authors?
JAMES PATTERSON!!! I have a whole lot more but if I were to write all of them, my fingers would fall off my hands. The reason James Patterson? This guys work is so rich and unpredictable that it has me at the edge of my seat at each chapter. I'm usually great at making a hypothesis of what were to happen later on in a story but... I can't compete with him!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing my fans are waiting, Anime (Ha pretty hilarious huh?) , Reading, Writing, Wondering why family isn't here... Me too. There is a few though who motivates me so I'll say 'Family' and also my friends.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, Watching anime, Jogging, Basketball, drawing, Trying to learn Japanese xD, Practicing math and science since I ... am horrible with these subjects.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Well I am a sucker for books, I will search for what I want. If I want a romance book with vampire or death included, I will simply write that.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh god.. Of course, In the 5th grade. It was a typical cliche and messed up, out of control book about a girl named 'Jenny' who was faced with another new step father and was not too happy about it. Jenny was known for her bad attitude and would always find herself in some kind of trouble.... that was basically it. I also drew on the book as if it were a little manga, I still have it... it's funny to look at. I've actually progressed looking from my work, I'm still learning but I'm proud of myself in a way.
What is your writing process?
I always have an Idea. I don't know how it happens but I ALWAYS have an Idea and I always write them down somewhere. I usually write it on paper or in a brand new spiral notebook but lately I've been going on my laptop frequently. After writing it or drafting it. I'd type it on Microsoft or some place and after doing that I'd go over it about three times editing and revising (Which I'm truthfully I'm horrid at).
How do you approach cover design?
Well I try to find something that relates to the book in some type of way, it could be something physical or emotional based on it.
What do you read for pleasure?
Oh, I read many things for pleasure. From thrillers and mysteries to Teen fiction and fictions to Romance and humor to werewolf, vampires and fantasies. My favorite is reading BoyxBoy books which is Gay books, they are my favorite believe it or not and they are very amusing If I might add ;)
