Thanks for joining me, Jamie. Please take a seat and make yourself comfortable.
I understand you’re a new author at Limitless Publishing and have a novel coming out with them in March. Can you tell me a bit about it and your writing?
I’m very excited about House of Refuge and can’t wait for it to be out. At the moment I have two books out that I have self-published. The Journey and a short story collection called, Timeless Hope that I just released this past August 2nd. . What I love to write the most is Romance. What type of romance varies. I like to write suspense, Inspirational, and Contemporary but almost always romance. I have a novella trilogy though that has nothing to do with romance. It’s titled “The Journey” it is an intense fictional trilogy that’s intensely realistic about drug addiction and recovery. At the moment only the first is self-published on Amazon, but I’m currently revising the 2nd novella in the trilogy. I hope to release it around Halloween this year. I am currently with Limitless Publishing and they will be publishing my first Inspirational novel with them on March 21, 2017. I’m very excited about that. I have previous releases that aren’t available, Nightmares and Dreams and Dark Moments and Silver Linings that I want to get re-published once I have time to do it and I have many other projects in mind. A lot coming that’s for sure lol.
Would you describe your goals as a writer to us? What do you hope to achieve in the next few years? What are you planning to do to reach these goals?
My goals are as such…Get a major book deal, have my first NYTimes and USA Today Bestseller and have my books on bookshelves throughout the country and abroad. I have every intention of making that happen and I believe in myself. I know it will happen and it will happen by not only working hard for it through continuing to write and promoting and searching for the right agent/publisher that will push me towards it but also by never giving up and never stopping in my faith and belief that it will happen.
Awesome. I have a similar goal, and I agree that a positive attitude and perseverance is very important in trying to meet it.
What type of reader are you hoping to attract? Who do you believe would be most interested in reading your books?
Ones who like to cry when they read lol. I believe that if I don’t touch my readers’ emotions I didn’t write anything worth reading. I want to attract readers who can relate on some level what I write. I write romance, but I also include social issues that millions can relate to.
What advice would you give other authors or those still trying to get published?
NEVER give up! Never stop working toward your dream and Never stop writing. Don’t be afraid of rejection because it will happen. It’s guaranteed, but if you don’t stop, your dream will become a reality and always believe in what you do. That’s a must!
What particular challenges and struggles did you face before first becoming published?
Not knowing what challenges were ahead of me and financially mostly. I had to sacrifice certain things. I even went hungry a few times to pay for promotion or editing or formatting or for a cover. I’ve paid my dues and will pay more, but I’m willing.
Have you taken any writing or publishing classes? If so, please provide information about them and if you feel they helped you further your professional skills.
Amazingly, the only thing I have paid for is the Masterclass with James Patterson, lol. Mainly I learned from others and from mistakes.
I was actually thinking of taking that, but I agree that you pick up a lot from others and from the process of writing daily.
What hobbies and interests do you have besides writing?
I love art, listening to music, reading, watching a good movie from time to time when I can tear myself away from my work, an occasional nap, watching football and golf and right now the Olympics. I strongly desire to go to the beach, too, though.
All great ways to relax and take a break from writing.
What do you like most and least about being an author? What is your toughest challenge?
There are several things I love about being an author. But mostly I love creating a story that touches others emotions. To be able to form the words in a way that it will address certain social issues that many can relate to. When I hear back from a reader and they tell me how it touched them and gave them hope and inspiration, that’s something that truly makes my heart smile. I also love being able to escape in my books. It’s very therapeutic for me.
My toughest challenge? Sometimes it’s fighting writers block. Unfortunately, I do get it from time to time and it has been known to last for weeks. Once I am able to tear that dark wall down though, it’s a beautiful feeling to be able to sit and have my fingers dance across the keyboard.
I, too, love it when I have positive feedback from readers and know my writing has touched them. I haven’t suffered writer’s block yet, but I can imagine it must be an unpleasant experience.
Can you please list your social media links, website, blog, etc. so readers can connect with you.
