Interview with Scarlet Vivling

What are you working on next?
I'm currently writing my third book. It's an science fiction story with a healthy dose of erotic pizazz and will be longer than my previous two books. After I finish with my current project, I'll start on a supernatural noir story set in the 1930's or 40's.
Who are your favorite authors?
I love a lot of different authors. My personal favorites being Diana Rowland, J. K. Rowling and R. L. Mathewson; I love her (Mathewson) 'Neighbor From Hell' series.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not busy writing, I'm usually pondering and mulling over ideas or spending my free time with friends and family.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
A close friend turned me onto ebooks shortly after I purchased my first iPad. They (ebooks) are a wonderful thing. I have two book cases at home and both are filled to capacity with books of all kinds. With ebooks I can store them on my iPad and phone. I love it.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do. It was a murder mystery, written for my creative writing class during my senior year in high school.
What is your writing process?
I brainstorm an idea or basic concept. I then create the characters and scenes in my head. From there I start writing, usually on my iPad, so I can write pretty much wherever I am.
How do you approach cover design?
I have an artist I found networking online who creates my cover art and design. He's a wonderful and talented artist. I didn't want the cover designs for my books to be photo composites or manipulation. I wanted full illustrations for my books.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read erotic fiction, romance, fantasy and science fiction. I've recently begun reading some comic books and graphic novels.
You mentioned reading comic books. Any in particular that you are reading?
Yes. I'm a really big fan of the X-Men comics. I've also begun collecting Walking Dead and vintage Star Wars.
Describe your desk
It's cluttered. All sorts of little Knicks knick knacks, figurines, books, my computer.
When did you first start writing?
I've always thought about writing and played around with the idea. Only recently after many colleagues suggested I should write professionally did I began to think seriously about becoming a writer.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I wanted to do a take on the idea of alien abduction and extraterrestrial contact. I wanted to explore a more erotic and sexual theme with the story, complete with the infamous 'probing.'
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The thrill of seeing my ideas spring to life and the feeling I get upon completing a book.
What do your fans mean to you?
They are everything. I write for my enjoyment and the enjoyment of others.
