      • My dad and my mom are the only people. He was a real WWII 101st Airborne hero. So much so, that when we met his old Army buddies and they said he was a hero, my dad would always say, "Anybody would have done that." I'm sorry to disagree with you, Dad, but it takes a special kind of hero to keep running up a hill and pulling your buddies to safety amidst a hail of gunfire. The why is easy. I still love and miss him so much it hurts.

        Why my mom? So she could see my dad again, of course.

      • I would like to be a NYT, USA Today and Amazon bestseller before I die or have a movie made from one of my stories. I don't care which.

        I don't have to stay on top. I would just like to be able to point at the headlines and say, "That was me. I did that."

    • How do you think concepts such as Kindle, and e-books have changed the present or future of reading?

      • I think e-books have made it easier for authors to get published because the big publishing houses tend to stay with who they know. They don't take many chances on new authors who don't have a name established as a bestseller.

        E-books also make it easier for a reader to carry many books with them or to read a book that some literary snob might curl their lip at. I, for one, like to be able to read a sensual to erotic romance while sitting in public without the cover giving away what I'm reading. I'm not ashamed to read it. I just don't want to have to fight the urge to slap someone who wants to make fun of it in public.

      • That's difficult. I've been told my writing resembles quite a few. I don't see it, but the readers do, I suppose. Some of them are, Evangeline Anderson, Christine Feehan, Eve Langlais, Patricia Briggs, JR Ward, and Laurell K Hamilton.

      • It depends. If I'm starting a new project, I can sit and stare at the screen for hours until I finally come up with the best opening paragraph. If it's something I've been working on, I can usually just slide into the seat and start writing. Some days are more difficult than others.

        I also have a timer and a rule. Get up at least once an hour and do something and every twenty minutes, I look away from the screen and look at something ten to twenty feet away to reduce the strain on my eyes.

      • It's definitely changed. I can read through a book I wrote at the beginning and see where I could make changes for the story to flow easier. I'll probably make those changes if I ever get my rights back on them.

      • No way.

        I hated English in high school. I hated writing papers and reports and I would have done just about anything to get out of a writing project.

      • Every one of my books contains something that happened to me in real life. Whether it's in dialogue or plot. They each have a bit of me in them somewhere. The book with the most of me is Alicia: The Awakening. All of Alicia's fear and emotions are mine after a similar experience.

      • The title is as important as editing but it is sometimes a hard thing to decide on. I find it difficult to come up with a good title that I think will capture a reader's imagination. Lately, I've been trying to settle on two-word titles such as Addie's Alien, Bewitching Birgit, and so on. They flow better for me and are easier to remember.

        I love a good cover, and unfortunately, readers will judge a book by its cover. They don't realize how expensive they are, nor how difficult it is to find an image that fits your book perfectly. They don't realize that sometimes, we have to settle on something that's just 'close'.

        I've been writing a lot of BBW (Big Beautiful Woman) romances lately. There are a lot of us plus-sized girls out there. However, there aren't a lot of plus-sized models sharing images on the internet. Our cover artists must choose the image of a woman who fits the closest to how our characters appear. While I'd like the characters to exactly match the cover, I've had to become more realistic than that.

        The most important thing about the cover in my opinion is, does it have the title and the name of the author spelled correctly? Is it pretty? I absolutely love a pretty cover. Other than that, the characters only need to have the same hair color and eyes of the characters. A woman can still be a size 20 and have a thin face. A man can still be a muscular alpha male and have a dimple. Some things are just more important than others.

        The most important message here? Stop judging those beautiful books by their covers.
