Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
My desk is a shared one. You can immediately pick my side: neat, all the things I need at my fingertips, no fancy stuff. The other side is messy, full of notes, pens, envelopes. I'm a writer of horror stories. She's an excellent fairy tales creator.
Yes, we are two writers living together, so different, but connected by the same passion for the written word.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I started as an indie, then, slowly, I made a little 'name' for me in this industry, and all my successive works have been published by companies. Honestly, I prefer to submit my work for publications, because I don't have much time - and patience - for promoting my stuff.

Smashwords book reviews by Jeffrey Kosh

  • Unleashed: Tail One on April 01, 2012

    IT MADE ME CRY WITH JOY Fun. Entertaining. Visual. These are just some of the words that come to my mind, after reading Unleashed: Tail One. Lori Lopez concocted such an amazing (and incredible) tale it should be a blockbuster. Not reading this is like going to Paris and neglecting Eiffel Tower; you’re missing something on your life trip. Really. I had to read several books these days. Some were of my liking, others were awful. It’s my personal policy to just review those I enjoyed and deserving at least 4 stars. This went beyond. I’d give it 8 stars if I could, because Lori Lopez’s style is truly innovative and her multitasking creativity clearly shows in her writing. In this tale you get three points of view: a dog, a detective, and a cat. Each one acts perfectly in character, with a lot of humor (dark and otherwise), and pleasant details. The main persona – Midnight the cat – had me laugh and shiver at the same time, and some of her lines (her thoughts) brought me back at Showtime’s Dexter … with a touch of Ray Bradbury. I think that Lori Lopez is one of the most gifted writers in the genre and should get more attention by the general public. She gets the instinct of a natural storyteller, yet she doesn’t disdain prose, playing with words in a funny way, Lopez never bogs you down into the intricacies of English language. I’m very glad having read this.
