My featured author comes to you all the way from North Yorkshire, United Kingdom:
Thank you L. Chapman for answering a few questions today!
What is your current work’s title and genre?
Desire I guess it is a contemporary romance with a lot of twist and sex-they need to create some more genre titles.
What did you edit out of this book?
Oh what don’t I edit out of books would be more like it, sometimes I talk sh*t, so that disappears. Then when it goes through edit I get told I didn’t talk enough sh*t. Hey ho.
What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
I don’t find it hard. I actually really like to write in the male POV. Maybe I’m strange who knows.
What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?
Oh, now this depends on what kind of book it is, for some books the only research I do is on outfits for events in the story, for others it’s more detailed.
What’s the best way to market your books?
Who knows? If anyone has the answer to this, please let me know. I do a lot of different things, I think you have to use every tool at your hands.
Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
Of course I do, it’s the only way to know what your fans / followers want and what to do to become a better writer.
What do you owe the real people upon whom you base your characters?
I kind of only base characters on myself and bad crap that has happened to me.
How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?
A few-3 unfinished and 6 unpublished.
If you didn’t write, what would you do for work (or what do you do for work other than write)?
I work full time in a care home, looking after elderly people with Dementia.
What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?
I’m lucky to have a lot of friends who are authors. I adore Krissy V and Karen Frances. If you’re looking for another author to check them out – check them out for sure.
