What is your writing process?
I'm a simple woman. I just need my laptop and my headphones. Usually I have kids running around the house screaming while I'm trying to work, so silence isn't required. Instead I like to put on a playlist of music to fit the story I'm working on, or a thunderstorm if I haven't figured out the playlist yet. Something about the sound of rain and thunder spurs my creativity. Then I open a Word doc and start typing.
How do you approach cover design?
I'm a very visual person, so I've actually bought books based on the cover and never even read the blurb. I know, terrible right? I try to focus on the overall vibe of the story. If it's erotic I want the cover to be sensual and sexy, but not over the top. I'm not a fan of full nudity, but I'm a huge fan of ripped abs. :) I'm lucky to have a fantastic cover designer with Covers by After Dark. I send her the blurb, character details and a few ideas and she creates magic.
