Interview with Nichole Williams

Published 2020-01-30.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To express myself with no judgement. To let my words and emotions flow on the page.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to see how things go on my own. I am just getting my feet wet in the writing world. So far being an indie author has worked for me. I'm not writing to make money I'm writing to touch souls. Having my loyal readers means a lot to me and keeps me on track to write more everyday!
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a chapbook for my poetry, a small collection of poems surrounding my day to day living.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
My best method right now when promoting my books is through my social media pages, my blog website, and a simple word of mouth.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children. I strive to be a better woman and a positive influence for them and for myself.
How do you approach cover design?
I think of or design my cover design to my books after the story is written. Once I know the beginning, the middle and the end of the story, I see the design in my head that I think will attract readers.
Who are your favorite authors?
For the fiction writers that inspire me to write – Toni Morrison, Jerome Dickey, Stephen King, Octavia Butler, Alice Walker, and Nikki Giovanni. The non-fiction writers I enjoy reading and get motivated by are Louise Hay, Lisa Nichols, Tony Gaskins, Joel Olsteen, T.D Jakes and James Baldwin.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes my first finished short story I wrote was called "Oh What a Night". I entered in a writing contest but didn't win so I decided to self publish the story and the book did well considering there were a few grammatical errors but many people enjoyed the story.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot of self help books and motivational books.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My computer or phone.
