Today we welcome J. Raven Wilde, author of steamy romance and paranormal romance novels.
What inspired you to write?
I have always loved reading, as well as writing. I knew that I had a few stories that I would love to share, it has just taken me a while to get those stories written and published. The more I read, the more stories I wanted to tell. Soon, the creative juices were flowing and ideas were popping up. I have many writing projects going right now to keep me busy for a while.
What’s your favourite thing that someone else has written?
The Beautiful Monsters Series by Jex Lane. I love the world that she has built in her stories and the characters that she has created. I have read her series at least eight times, they are that good!
What are you working on writing now?
I’m working on a few things; the second novella in my Sanctuary Series called, Claimed by the Bear, which I plan to have out in August.
The first novella in my Sanctuary Series, Claimed by the Alpha was just released and available on Amazon.
The other writing project I’m working on is another steamy romance novella called His Orders.
What’s your favourite TV show?
Supernatural, of course.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A veterinarian however, that didn’t happen. I joined the military and traveled the world.
Forest, country, beach or city?
The country and the beach. Definitely not a city person. Too much noise. I need a little peace and quiet, tossed in with some sun, sand, and water.
Who designs your book covers?
I actually found a really awesome graphic artist on Fiverr called, Designrans. He wasn’t my first cover designer, but now, he’s the one I go to.
What would you like people to know about being an Indie author?
I like being in control of my work, as well as the percentage of royalties that I receive compared to a traditionally published author. I am able to publish more and often, rather than waiting a year or more just to publish one book. I can set my own prices. True, you have a lot of leg work to do as far as getting your name out there, but you are doing just the same amount of work as you would be as an unknown traditionally published author.
Where can readers find your books?
Are we able to follow you on social media?
I also have a Facebook page where I keep everyone up to date on my current projects or newly published works.
Thank you for talking with me today, J. I’ve enjoyed our chat.
Thanks, Book Squirrel. It has been fun!
