Today we have Angela Mcpherson sharing her experiences as an author. Find out more about Angela on Facebook, her Website, Goodreads, Twitter, and Amazon.
What do you think is the biggest challenge an Indie author faces?
The biggest challenge would be exposure, getting your name into readers' hands.
What are you working on right now?
I'm working on a few projects at the moment. Hope's Deceit (The Fated, #2) is in early editing stages. Hopefully, HD2 will be completed by the end of Aug/Sept. However, I do have another project I'm secretly working on. The title hasn't been released yet ;)
What advice can you share with other Indie and aspiring Indie authors?
I'd say to never give up, keep writing. Sorry, I don't have anything original, but never giving up is the best advice I could give. The more you write, the better you get. True story.
Which authors inspire you?
All of them...but here's a list: Christopher Pike, Jennifer Armentrout, Colleen Hoover, Richelle Mead, Elizabeth Reyes, Jen Wylie, Lynn Vroman, Heather Van Fleet, J. A. Campbell, Sean Hayden, John Green, Jamie McGuire, Joanne Wadsworth, Ingrid Nickelsen, Katy O'Dowd, Laura Thalassa, Troy Lambert, Rachel Brune, Julie Kagawa....Oh, my goodness, this list could go on. I'm gonna stop here.
What genre do you write in?
Hope's Decree (The Fated, #1) is a young adult, paranormal romance and Distraction is a new adult, college romance.
I love romance, in any sub-genre it may be in. I'm in love with love, I guess.
When did you decide to become a writer?
I've always liked creating stories in my head, but it wasn't until reading a Christopher Pike book that I really decided to write. That was about 4 years ago.
Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
I WISH I could write in the daytime, but sadly, I write better at night.
Do you write every day, 5 days a week or as and when?
I write everyday, it's like a drug. I can't stop.
How do you think you’ve evolved creatively?
With every story I write, I learn a better way to create scenes. This comes from reading, listening to whatever helpful advice my editors give me and listening to what my readers want. Oh! And listening to music, I must have music to create anything, and coffee. Music and coffee or I can't listen to anyone. ;)
