Interview with Samantha Davis

What do you read for pleasure?
I read everything under the sun, but usual go to reads are romance novels. I love to just curl up on the couch and get lost in someone else's love story. I enjoy the journey the characters take me on while trying to find the answers to their lives.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
That would be my Kindle Fire! I never leave the house without it...unless it's dead because I forget to charge it at night. But even then, I have a kindle app on my phone. Ha!
When did you first start writing?
I think the first time I put my thoughts down on paper I was 9 years old. My mom bought me a journal, and I wrote in it every day. I would write my dreams down and before I knew it, I would had an entire world going on in that journal.
What's the story behind your latest book?
A daydream about a "what if" scenerio. Its just one of those things that flicker across my mind at the most random moment and never leave.
What do your fans mean to you?
I only have one at the moment, but she means the WORLD to me! She is the only that has read my rough draft of what I am currently working on. And believe me, she is not withholding any of her critique haha!
Who are your favorite authors?
My all time favorite author is VC Andrews. I love the way she pulls the reader in and causes the audible gasp when you get to the twists in her books.

Shelly Crane is a great author as well. I recently discovered her work and I am a FAN!

Suzanne Collins and the Hunger Games triology was my obsession for a good year.

EL James definitely made me fan with 50 Shades Of Grey. I cant wait to see what she releases next.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My family for sure. I have two small children and a wonderful husband. They make life interesting.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm back in college, so I am there more than anywhere. Between classes I try to sneak in a few pages of the book I am reading at the time.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I usually get recommended the majority of the books I read.
What is your writing process?
Jot down the idea as soon as it comes to me. It can be a scrap paper on the floor board of my car, or voice record on my phone. Then when I am drafting my project, it usually consists of tons of loose paper, emails of dialogue, and two or three notebooks of scribble. But it all makes sense to me.
How do you approach cover design?
I'm not sure. I may need some help in designing my first cover design.
