Interview with Tiffany King

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I actually have more devices than I probably should. I read on my iPad mini, my iPhone, and sometimes a Kindle. Honestly, I still love the feel and smell of a good old fashioned paperback.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Making friends on social media. Sharing reading interests. Remembering that no one likes it when you continually shove your book in their face.
Describe your desk
I actually have a desk in an office that I rarely use. My office is decorated with my favorite books, memorabilia, photos and little trinkets and knickknacks I have picked up over the years, but I always seem to wind up in the old comfy chair in my bedroom to write.
When did you first start writing?
After a lifelong love affair with reading, I decided to try writing five years ago. My daughter was beginning to show the same interest in reading as I had, and I thought I would write something for her. That eventually turned into my first book, Meant to Be.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Misunderstandings releases May 6, 2014 from Berkley Romance. It is the story of two people that fall in love while attending college in Seattle and have a fall out over a terrible misunderstanding of circumstances. Two years later, the engagement of mutual friends brings them together again where they become trapped in a malfunctioning elevator. The story unfolds as they hash out the confusion that clouded their past relationship.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Curiosity mostly. My dream has always been to become a published author, but as any inspiring writer knows, the barriers to entry are strong. I made the decision that while I continued to pursue my dream, I would take advantage of all the exciting avenues available to self-published authors and put my work in the hands of readers. I am thankful to say it was the best decision I ever made. I am grateful for everyone that has supported me along the way, and am proud to say that I am both a successful indie and traditionally published author.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Seeing a story that started as nothing but a thought in my head come alive on my computer screen. I always love seeing the personalities of the characters develop as the story unfolds.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean everything to me. I tell everyone I know how fortunate I am to be able to say that I am literally living my dream. None of it would be possible without the many many friends, colleagues and supporters I have been privileged to get to know. All of you will always have my sincerest gratitude.
What are you working on next?
Since signing with Berkley Romance, my plate is filled with upcoming New Adult romance titles. I have Misunderstandings in May 2014, No Attachments in August 2014, and Contradictions in December 2014, as well as a New Adult romance anthology called When We Met, due in November 2014. I will also be indie publishing the final installment of the Jordyn: A Daemon Hunter Novel series. Look for that Summer 2014.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
From interacting with people on social media. There is no better source of information for discovering the next great read.
What do you read for pleasure?
Like millions of people around the world, I am a huge Harry Potter fanatic. Mostly my interests run to romance and contemporary romance whether it's YA or New Adult or even adult. I love a good story.
