Interview with Ale Quinn

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love writing. I wanted to write a novel since I was seven, but unfortunately, I have an extreme procrastinational personality.

The cost was also a factor. I didn't want to spend much and I wanted to make money, so I got into idie publishing.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It is an extreme escape for me.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Waffles-it's a higher level of foods.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, drawing, researching, or maybe watching my favorite '90s shows.
How do you approach cover design?
It depends on what I am writing.

If I were to write a depressing book, I would look for a free image that is depressing enough, or take a photograph, add a couple of effects and...Bingo! I've done it!
What is the one thing you hate in literature?
Clichés. If it is a limited amount, I can deal. If it is built upon a rock of clichés, I won't even touch it.

Clichés such as:
-The heroine falling in love with the hero right in the early chapters. Real love takes time. It shouldn't be a fight one minute, then kissing the next just because you want romance.
-The helpless heroine who does nothing to help whatsoever.
-The "goth" character who learns to be open and cheery to everyone like they have a switch. Real people like these, like me, who I refer to INTJ, aren't like this at all. They are cold and insensitive, sure, but they only open up to people they trust. They don't say things that they don't mean or feel, often seeming insensitive or blunt.
