Interview with C.A Bell

Describe your desk
Computer, dictionary, thesaurus, cup of tea, phone, and note pad.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was twenty one. I wrote the first two chapters of The Architect, then put it away for three years, before finally finding the time to finish it and chase my dream of becoming a published author.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Impatience. I am a very impatient person and want things done NOW! Publishing houses are so busy and you end up waiting months to even hear back from them with a yes or a no. I have published with a publishing house, but I find I prefer to have control over the work I have slaved over, rather then someone else.
What are you working on next?
Currently I am working on book 2 of Nancy's Curse, book 2 of The Architect, and a novel. Don't worry, I can handle it.
Who are your favorite authors?
I have so many, but the first that come to mind are, Sylvia Day, Saskia Walker, Erzabet Bishop and Sheri Lynn.
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything that catches my attention. Mainly erotica though, as that's the genre I write in and enjoy most.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Coming to the end of your first draft. That is the most amazing feeling. All your words and ideas are down, and now comes the fun part. Rewriting and editing.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. The first story I ever wrote was The Architect, which was my first real attempt at writing, and much to my surprise was published by House of Erotica. I was over the moon.
What is your writing process?
Sit, type, cup of tea. Sit, type, cup of tea... and so on.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I have tried a few marketing techniques. Release Blitz's didn't really do much, nor did any of the blog tours. I guess for me, what worked best and increased sales was word of mouth.
