What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
The way to market right now is with Facebook Ads and building up your own email list. Mark Dawson is who I am currently learning from at his website - selfpublishingformula.com
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read a lot and do book promoting by blogging and I am an intuitive so I do many oracle card readings. Of course there is the obvious of housework, taking care of children, shopping, exercising, watching a bit of TV and communicating with family and friends.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Many are found by people coming into my radar, wanting me to promote their books. Also, I am a big Hay House author fan so many of those books are my favourites. My parents & I have the same taste in books so we share what we find with each other.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I wrote a funny story about lizards in school. I still have it actually.
What is your writing process?
I like to write by hand, type it up and print it. Then I edit the crap out of it. LOL
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
In junior high school I read many V.C Andrews stories and was fascinated by them. Also Judy Blume (hilarious) and a series that was similar to Little House on the Prairie. It showed me that reading can take you into many different worlds.
What do you read for pleasure?
Lately I have been reading a lot of books about reincarnation, meditation, astral travel. I read books by Sandra Brown Wayne Dyer for sure. Discovering new authors is what has my interest right now. So far, I am really happy with who I am finding such as - Susie Steiner. Author of "Missing, Presumed".
