Interview with Shelly Meyer

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on book one of a series that begins with dreams and how we interact with others in the dream realm and in the real world. The story comes from a real life experience.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favourite author is Anne Rice, James Patterson and Nicholas Sparks.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do. I was in high school and it was a story of a man who is haunted by his dead wife, whom he killed.
How do you approach cover design?
I usually design my covers based on the story behind my book.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I have used Create Space and Publish America, although neither has worked well as I am not able to market myself.
Describe your desk
I have no desk. I write in bed or at the kitchen table.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing and knew I was in love with writing when I was 4 or 5.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to be published in some form and had an impossible time finding a traditional publisher who would take my work.
What do your fans mean to you?
Without my fans, I would not have any books sold.
What is your writing process?
I write until the ideas stop, then I take a break until the ideas begin to flow again.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Newport Beach, California. It didn't influence my writing at all. I was born with my gift.
Who inspires you to write?
My children and granddaughter and the love of my life, Tim.
