Author Spotlight Gloria Herrmann

authorspotlightWelcome to the Limitless Library Lounge where I interview fellow authors from Limitless Publishing. Today, I am chatting with Gloria Herrmann from
Colville, WA.


Thanks for joining me, Gloria.  Please have a seat and make yourself comfortable.


How long have you been publishing with Limitless? What titles have you published with them? Have you self-published any titles or published with another publisher? Please give details.

loving liam cover (1)I was signed in late July of 2015, with my first book being released in October. I will currently have three titles available, but a fourth is being edited.

That’s great. Can you tell us a little bit about your books — what genre you write, if you write a series, any upcoming releases or your current work-in-progress. If you have an upcoming release, please specify the release date.

I write sweet contemporary romances, but I am currently working on something quite different, a supernatural romance. I just completed the fourth book in the Cloverleaf Series, I do have plans for future books. My next release is April 5th for book 3, Patrick’s Promise.

They all sound great including the supernatural romance. My first self-published book was a paranormal romance. It was quite different from my Cobble Cove books, as well. It’s great to be able to branch out and offer some variety within a genre.

How would you describe your goals as a writer. What do you hope to achieve in the next few years? What are you planning to do to reach these goals?

My hopes are that I will be able to reach a lot of readers and that they enjoy what I write. I am not looking for fame or fortune, though I wouldn’t mind either. My main ambition is to be taken seriously as an author and to make readers happy.

Those are very worthy goals for all authors. I wish you luck achieving them. I think you already have a great start toward them.

Maggies Marriage FrontWhat type of reader are you hoping to attract?  Who do you believe would be most interested in reading your books?

I want to attract readers of sweet romance for this line, mainly women who are fans of authors like, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts, etc. However, my next story will be a little more available to a wider range of readers, those who love romance, paranormal, supernatural, and native tales.

I’m a big fan of Nora Roberts. I like both her standalones and JD Robb mysteries. She and Debbie Macomber are very popular at my library. Your supernatural book should also have a large audience.

What advice would you give other authors or those still trying to get published?

PatricksPromise_ecoverWhen it comes to publishing, be prepared to hold your breath, for like almost three months, and don’t be discouraged when you don’t hear back right away, just keep trying, keep honing your craft, because it should be more about loving to write, not just getting published.

My advice for surviving in the literary community is simple, respect other authors or those that are practicing the same art you are. They are the most important support system, especially in the online world.

My last bit of advice, if you are a writer, you will write, because that is what a writer does. You don’t need someone to validate your love for it. Just do it. Just write.

Very good advice and all of it so true.

What hobbies and interests do you have besides writing?

I love reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.

Nice ways to unwind.

What do you like most and least about being an author? What is your toughest challenge?

I love creating, the whole plotting and constructing part, that’s the best. Interacting with readers and other authors is also incredible and I enjoy it a great deal. My least favorite thing about being an author would have to be author ranking, it just drives me crazy. I hate the worry that goes into wondering if I’m doing well or not. So that is also my challenge, not letting it take the wind out of my sails, or keeping me from writing.

I think it’s only natural to be concerned with ranking, but what’s more important is the fan base you are building. You seem to be a people person, so that will really help.

Can you  please list your social media links, website, blog, etc. so readers can connect with you.
