Next month I’m meeting with the local library book club. They are currently reading my debut novel, Cookie Encounter. But what I want to know is, what would you ask a new author?
What kinds of questions should I anticipate answering? What would you ask a new author if you liked or didn’t like their new book?
I would like to have an idea of what I might be asked. So, here’s your chance to chime in!
Ask me anything about writing a book or about being an author.
The floor’s open. Ask away!
Ready to answer,
How long did it take you to write your novel?
What did you find were your biggest challenges in getting it published?
Cookie Encounter was a NaNoWriMo Novel. So, I wrote the bulk of it in November of 2007. I have edited it on and off over the years since then and let it sit until early 2015 when I decided it was time for it to leave the nest. I had first readers read it, edited it again, and then again when I uploaded it to Create Space and Kindle.
One of the hardest things for me was to decide whether to pursue traditional publishing or go self-pub. Then, after I decided to self-pub, it was getting it in the right formats to publish.
Thank you for asking!
