Interview with Tracy Kauffman

What are you working on next?
Right now I am coaching new authors through a 3 Step Video Training Series. Visit my website for more information. After that I thought about Writing a Part 2 To my Southern Attraction book.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Eager to succeed! I hate getting out of bed but I know that I can't get nothing accomplished if I stay there all day.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Marketing online.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually from something I read about online.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I started writing poetry. I wrote a poem titled the Cosmetology Student.
What is your writing process?
Fly by the seat of my pants and write.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Don't remember the first but Boxcar Children was a great read and Alice in Wonderland was interesting.
How do you approach cover design?
I usually have a great sense of style and if I don't like it, the reader probably won't either.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Android phone has Kindle on it.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Website and author sites.
Describe your desk
fairly neat
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Of course living in the south. Too many things about the south make up a great story. The language, the food, the redneck attitude, the southern charm, people that are down to earth.
When did you first start writing?
I started in high school writing poetry and it took off from there. I made up stories about space and such but they never made it to print. I was always living in a fantasy land.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I was inspired to write about Southern Attraction, because I wanted people to remember the tragedy of what happened when the tornadoes blew through the south in 2011.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
More recognition that is for sure.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing itself. I love getting words on paper and inspiring others.
