Interview with Sara C. Roethle

What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on a book outside of my Xoe Meyers series. It's more of a traditional fantasy, but with a twist (as the cliche goes). The title is still TBA, but both the title and release date will be announced in June.
Who are your favorite authors?
Vonnegut, Bukowski, Robert Jordan, Kim Harrison . . .
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I feel like I'm supposed to say that, and my little two person/three animal family...and my need for coffee.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I paint, though not nearly enough. I play music, though not nearly enough. I do play plenty of video games though. Currently I'm on the crack known as Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Random. If a cover or title catches my attention, I read it. I'm also a sucker for freebies.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do. I had grand aspirations of writing a full novel when I was around twelve years old. It was about wizards. It was ten pages long.
What is your writing process?
Drink lots of coffee, stare at computer screen, drink more coffee, cry a little, write, repeat.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I think it was something about a mouse on a motorcycle. It was the first novel style book that I read, so I was pretty stoked, but I don't remember the story at all.
How do you approach cover design?
I have a picture in my head that I try to translate into a book cover. It never works, but I usually end up liking the result better than what I had imagined.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Oh gods, how do I even begin? I can't....I just can't.
What do you read for pleasure?
Everything, though mainly fantasy.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
None. I kind of fail at book marketing.

Xoe never thought she’d be the type of girl to contemplate murder. Of course, she never thought she’d be dealing with werewolves on top of her own strange, budding powers. She’d also never considered the possibility of her long lost father being a demon. Everything comes crashing down at once when her best friend’s life is put in peril, and Xoe will do whatever it takes to save her.
