Meka James is a writer of adult contemporary and erotic romance. A born and raised Georgia Peach, she still resides in the southern state with her hubby of 16 years and counting. Mom to four kids of the two legged variety, she also has four fur-babies of the canine variety. Leo the turtle and Spade the snake rounds out her wacky household. When not writing or reading, Meka can be found playing The Sims 3, sometimes Sims 4, and making up fun stories to go with the pixelated people whose world she controls.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The freedom to put out my story, the way I wanted. I knew my first book was more on the unconventional side, so the idea of shopping it around to publishers only to possibly be rejected due to content was something I'd rather not do. After doing some research and seeing the success authors like CJ Roberts had, I decided that being an indie author would be a better fit for me.
That's not to say I would turn down a publisher if one were to approach me, but to get started in the biz, self-pubbing was the way to go.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to let my imagination run wild. As kids, we all would daydream and wonder what if. Well writing allows those daydreams to come to life.
