Anthony Awtrey


I’ve been writing novels for fun and practice since 2012. After completing eight novels and a few dozen short stories, I felt ready to start publishing. I’m a member of the Central Florida Chapter of the Romance Writers of America and Florida Writers Association. When I’m not writing, I’m the CTO for a technology consultancy and a professional singer.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Back in high school I wrote a short story that ended up getting published in the school's annual literary review. It was a rough story about an aging guitarist who continued to play despite his personal issues. When the blues club he played in burned down, he took a one way walk to a local quarry. Not the happiest ending, but the story won.
What is your writing process?
I write daily and if I get stuck I write something for fun. Since I started writing fiction seriously again in 2012 I've passed a million words. I usually start with an idea for a conflict and write until I see the ending. Then I often rewrite the beginning to make it flow better and pass it around to my editor. I've paid for editing even for stories I'm not planning to publish just to practice the most important part of writing... the editing. When I plan to publish something, I have a whole marketing plan I use to prepare the cover, book formatting, and plan for a splashy release.
