Interview with Ava Isle

What do you read for pleasure?
I like to read science fiction and science fantasy. During high school, I went through the romance novel phase.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I'm currently using Kindle and PDF reader.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Being new to self-publishing, I have not done any marketing. My first ebook, The Spark for Dan & Pearl, is currently free to download until 31 October 2017 to give readers a chance to read the work of a new author.
Describe your desk
Messy at the moment, it gets cleaned on weekends!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Where I grew up did not influence my writing of an adult sensual story. What influenced me is the desire to fulfill a dream of crafting a story and hoping readers enjoy it. I do have a day job which I like to do and pays the bills, hence the pen name.
When did you first start writing?
during high school
What's the story behind your latest book?
The human factor behind my debut e-book focuses on the highly-charged moments in life which affect two people to the point that they change their minds about something in their lives. The data analysis articles I've seen on the internet stated that romance was the highest selling genre so I went back to my high school memories of reading romance novels and added my own style.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
A desire to fulfill a dream to craft a story and get it published for general readership. I am looking for reviews on my work.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The finished manuscript!
What are you working on next?
I am working on sensual short story #2.
