Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book? book, A True Tale of Horror: "The Unhappy Heiress," is a short story taken from my unpublished anthology series, Tales of Horror. The majority of the literature written in my series is a compilation involving supernatural horror fiction, weird fiction, and the paranormal. The style of writing is Victorian/Gothic -- an 18th century memoir.

Not all of the stories written in the series pertain to this style of writing. So I specifically used, "The Unhappy Heiress" because of this reason. I really love the story, due to the originality of the literature. Reminds me a lot of Edgar Allan Poe - H.P Lovecraft style of writing, for which I believe is coming back to life, with regards to the supernatural horror realm.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. Without fans you have nothing, and I mean nothing at all. Period! Your fans are your biggest "support network" who have the ability, and power to build you up to become successful. So fans are "extremely important;" and not just for a writer or author, but for any kind of creative artist!
