Interview with Racquel Sarah A. Castro

Published 2015-01-02.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have been motivated by my fellow persons with disabilities. I want to help spread awareness that we, physically challenged individuals, can make a difference in a way that I can convey their life long struggles through my works. I may not get it from print publishers but with self publishing technology, it may be possible.
What is your writing process?
my writing process.... First, I think of a good title. Then search if it exists. If not, I will now conceptualize the story. Then the character and their back stories. then i start writing chapters. when i got a good story line, i tried to make certain changes based on the actual life circumstances and research on places to feature, food to include, and twists to consider...
How do you approach cover design?
i tried to finish the story and based the cover design on the climax of the story or i select parts of the story and try to relate it to objects. :)
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story i've ever read, was the creation story... i've realized that God really loved us because He doesn't create us without every need that we may encounter...
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. it was my project back in High School. :)
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I watch TV, play games in my tablet, conceptualize a story, and eat!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Recommendation of family and friends :)
