Smashwords Interview

What is one interesting fact about you that you would like your readers to know?
I feel like everyone tries to be so cool on social media…look at my beautiful writing space, look at this ridiculously cute outfit I wear while writing your fav characters, etc. That’s not me. At. All. My writing space is my couch. I wear sweatpants while I’m writing and sometimes I forget to wash my face before 2 in the afternoon. I am not a very social person. Actually, I’m a complete weirdo. And I hope that my readers love me anyway.
If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Don’t give up. In college, I got denied by dozens of agents/publishers and I gave up writing for about 5 years. That’s one of my biggest regrets. I could have spent that whole time getting better, but I let others tell me that I wasn’t a good “fit.” Self-publishing was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It allows me to write whatever I’m passionate about and at whatever pace my creativity will allow. It’s a win/win for me.
