Interview with Sherrie Lynn

What's the story behind your latest book?
In Too Deep is my novella I worked on like forever but I like the story of Kess and Javen. They joke and laugh with each other but serious about their job as international spy's. This is the third book in the series. 'Every Blue Moon' is the First, 'Work Ethic' is Second. The common thread is, The Agency. Kess is curious to know who is behind the Agency. Javen want her to drop it and focus on what they've been avoiding for years. Each other. How can they dare fall in love and live a normal life? Their in too deep.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Filling in my time with something productive and informative. Which could account for my writing both fiction and non-fiction. Short Stories are now popular again thanks to eBooks.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love contemporary romances with a happy ending. I like characters that are educated, pursuing a higher education or artistic in some way. I also like self-help books that provide better insight to life and people.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fan's remind you your world does not consist of only evil spirited or very strange people. A reminder that some people do actually read. It's so refreshing. Also a true test if someone actually read your book with comprehension. With a novel like A Forward Motion, 100k words, a coming-of-age interracial romance set in the 70's, this can be a good ten minute conversation as so much happen in this book that span many years. My second favorite book so far.
When did you first start writing?
After being stressed out working at a hospital for ten years. The story I haven't wrote. Around 1987 I started seriously writing for publication.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The first thing I learned while promoting the first book is, readers don't care how the book came about, they want to know if it's worth reading. I have to say as an avid reader growing up, I started coming across too many books that lack substance and knew I could produce something way better. My first book was allegedly released through a traditional publisher. After that I tried traditional publishing again but as the years went on, authors who went this route started to complain so much I was thinking why bother. Some author's need that validation. Today you end up doing your own marketing either way.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the Westside of Chicago. It was a different Westside then apposed to how it is now. The neighborhood was multi-cultural with no dominant race. My novel, A Forward Motion is inspired by my parents history as part of 'The Great Migration' but for the most part, my teen-age years screaming over the Jackson Five. The Limited Series written like a memoir provide even more details of that era.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I always hear good things from fellow author's about Smashwords and decided to give it a try. Smashwords is now competing with a number of similar websites but can be the one gem every author is looking for when it come's to marketing their books.
What are you working on next?
Actually, I'm taking a indefinite vacation from writing and focusing on other things.
The following is projects I would eventually like to see happen one day.
An Author's View On Religion
An Author's View On Social Etiquette
Share this interview with friends, family and fellow authors. (TIA)
What other goals do you hope to accomplish?
Read More. See what other author's are writing. I just started BECOMING by former 1st. Lady, Michelle Obama. I love it and surprised how much she remind me of myself. Even some of our early life experiences are the same. Like the evening drives through affluent neighborhoods with the family. As a young girl it was awesome to see. Until now, I thought our family was the only ones to do this. Can't wait to see what happens next. Well lol, we know what happens next.
Name the books you'd like to see made into a box office movie?
A Forward Motion by Sherrie Lynn
Backstage Pass, The Jade Sheldon Story by Sherrie Lynn
A Modern Romance 4 'A Social Experiment' by Sherrie Lynn
Work Ethic by S. Lynn I see this novella as a weekly TV series showcasing how much can be accomplished by having a good work ethic.
Note: Book Covers Change but the content remain the same. Happy Reading :-)

Peace & Blessings
