Interview with Hope Hopkins

How do you approach cover design?
That's tricky. Cover designed can be very complicated. I look for the best cover design that fits the story and its structure and foundation.
What are your two favorite books?
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. That was the book that piqued my interest and inspired me to write. I also like The Lost Books Series by Ted Dekker. I remember reading these books when I was sick with the flu, instantly I fell in love with them and read four books in two days.
What do you read for pleasure?
Romance, mystery, suspense and thrillers.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle.
Describe your desk
A little messy.
When did you first start writing?
I believe it was 2006 after watching One Night With The King.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It's about a young 17 young girl that is a demon hunter but doesn't know it. She has a lot of mouth, but a heart of gold. This story was birthed in a time of my life when I was stressed. So one day I started writing about Laila. Originally she was 10 years old but I made her 17 so she could have a love interest and make things interesting. After that Laila basically wrote herself. I had fun writing her story, she made me laugh.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love telling stories. I didn't know I was a writer, I was always drawing, making short stories out of my art work. My Mother put a love of reading and writing in my heart at a young age. So I was bound to be a writer. I became an indie writer because I want to be in control of my writing and write the way I want.
What are you working on next?
Poems and short stories and a suspense novel.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephanie Meyer, James Patterson and Ted Dekker
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Seeing want the day holds.
