Shanna B. Talley


Witchy southern belle who loves the kinky side of life and writes in graphic detail about it. Nature loving garden girl, kitchen witch extraordinaire, halloween queen & all around fangirl of comic books. Spent most of my working life in retail and now ready to show the world what I am really thinking in full vivid technicolor of my books.I laugh at myself constantly and see the world in ways most people don't. My book ideas come from strange influences and I write what I would want to read. Books and writing are my entire life. .

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
My first thing is I see something, hear a song or read a phrase in a book & the ideas begin to flow and the images unfold in my head so i write down the ideas in my idea book or on a post it and it gets stuck on something. I then have to decide if its a one title book or trilogy or an entire series. I can see the beginning and know how it should end. Once thats established, i buy certain types of blue ink pens and spiral notebooks to write them in. Physically writing it in my handwriting and seeing it come to life on the page from the images in my head is where its at. It plays like a movie and i can reach in and have all the emotions, the sites, the smells, everything right there in my head and see it unfold on the page. I take my notebook everywhere along with post its and pens so I can write anywhere. Each notebook has pages with tiny notes and post it notes of ideas in them. Once I am done I type them up on my laptop and usually add or subtract things due to the different mindset at that time.
How do you approach cover design?
I look at what the series will be and have them all be the same color scheme but pictures that correlate with the story being told. I love art & design so creating them is a feat but well worth it to see the finished product.
