Today’s Interview with An Author is with K.R.Brown! Brown is a married mother-of-two with a four-book-series (Number 5 is on the way!)
What are you writing at the moment?
The 5th book in the Twisted Fate Series. It is called Twisted Destiny.
What’s your favourite book?
I don’t have a favourite book; I read all kinds and sometimes go back and re-read them. If I had to pick though it would be The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.
What’s your writing routine?
I try to write every day, even if it is only a few words I want to try and add something to what I am working on. I am what most authors call a “seat of my pants” writer. I let the story work it out as I write. I let the characters write the story.
What’s your favourite genre to write, or even to read?
I have more Paranormal Romance out then anything, but I love the fantasy side as well.
What inspired your first book?
Twisted Fate is kind of about me in many ways. No I have never been attacked by vampires (haha). The truth is I put a lot of me in the first book.
Are your friends and family supportive of your writing career?
My family and friends love that I have taken on the role of story teller. Even at a young age I loved to write and tell stories. My husband supports all that I do with the books, so do my daughter and son.
How do you manage your time?
With two kids and a house to keep it is hard. I normally write at night between 9 and 12. Sometimes I will write during the day but it isn’t very easy with both kids.
Are you self-published or with an agent? Was this a personal choice?
When I first started out I did Self-pub. I was picked up by a publisher in December. The reason I went self-pub is because so many publishers weren’t looking for Paranormal Romance, or they didn’t like how I wrote. I understood that and went with self-publishing instead. I happened to be very lucky when I found Imaginary Publishing and Faith!
Did you find it difficult trying to get into the industry?
Yes, it is very hard to get a book out into the world now. It is a job in itself and you don’t really get paid for it. I love what I do and would never change it, but sometimes it is very disheartening to see the negative.
How do you keep motivated?
I look at my family and I realize I can inspire my children to go after a dream. Writing and becoming an author was my life long goal! This is something that I can tell my kids and they can see that dreams really do come true if you work hard enough.
Thanks, K.R. Brown!
