So, the 12th question is “How do you market and brand yourself as an author?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

That is the most difficult part, still struggling with it

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

I actively market my books in various ways, including buying ads on Amazon, giving several speeches to local groups and conventions, being active on social media, entering and winning book awards, etc. I explain all of the tactics I use to sell my books in my latest book entitled Smart Marketing for Indie Authors.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

By uploading videos onto my YouTube channel, Kate O Show, by having discussions about my book, sharing my experiences. Having Facebook lives, Facebook posts and sharing my Amazon book link,. Instagram life and posts and twitter.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

My marketing and brand are promoted via my website, on which I have created a classy writing style for myself.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

I am “America’s Culturalist!” I make it a point to write only about culture, conflict, commerce, and culture.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

Marketing is not my favorite part of being an Indie author, as many Indies will agree about marketing. We write because we have the passion. We market because we must get our names and our books out into a world that is swimming in millions of other books, so it becomes part of our job as writers to promote our own work. This is far from the fun stuff and also very time-consuming – eating into our writing lives. I try to balance my marketing by sharing the works of others in my writing community, which causes the effect of others sharing in return. I run a blog on my website where I share all kinds of information, from my own stories, to writing tips, book reviews, author interviews and blog shares. I’m active on social media, doing the same. I run several groups on various social media sites. All these things are part of being an independently published author because if my presence isn’t kept alive, neither are my books. By sharing and helping others, we build good rapports with others in our writing community, and in turn we become part of other people’s network. The trick is to share useful information, share the work of others, join writing groups, keep abreast of the publishing business by subscribing to newsletters, and most importantly – don’t spam people with ‘buy my book’. Nobody is interested in being sold to. If we become a part of a community and give back, others are only too happy to help celebrate and share our victories.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

I try to be real and authentic in my life, on social media and everywhere else. I feel that is the best brand and marketing any author can be and do! When you are authentic, readers connect with you and pick up your book because they want to hear what you have to say. A lot of my book sales are organic rather than paid marketing. I love to interact with my readers and engage with them through book clubs, videos, blogs etc.

I post links to my books on Facebook and Twitter, advertise in newspapers, and write a blog for dailywisdomwords.com where my books are also being advertised to gain credibility with the vast wring community on Twitter and Facebook. The blog’s title is Wise Poets of the Past and Present and is designed to educate young aspiring writers in the finer points of writing poetry and prose. It is also a gift to posterity.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Firstly as an author being branded with creative entrepreneur also got over 15 years of acting credits to my name.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

Mostly on Facebook, I tell people my story and most of the time they feel inspired

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

I’m a self-published author so I spend my weekday on the web networking with other authors, people who are willing to interview me such as yourself. I also attend bookfairs and set up a platform on different social networks from http://www.linkedin.com to http://www.wordpress.com

So, the 11th question is “Have you written anything else apart from non-fiction books?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

I write a lot on my websites as posts, on many subjects

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

No.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Yes, I write press releases and quotes.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

Yes, I am currently working on a fiction webplay serial for the family. I have also done poetry.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Not to date. I have a few fiction-based manuscripts in development, however I always end up going back to my non-fiction manuscripts and finishing them up.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

I have written quite a bit of poetry and flash fiction and essays. But to be honest, even my poetry and fictional stories are always based on a truth – in these instances the truth is hidden within the story instead of directly spoken by me as I write in non-fiction.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

No. I do have future plans to explore other genres.

I love to write free verse inspirational poetry graced with a touch of rhyme and are kind of musical like wind chimes.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Poetry and features articles on different topic subjects.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

Yes, Christian novels. Also to inspire

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

Yes, I’ve written a fiction book yet with the same message as my non-fiction books.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

No

June Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies Author Interview Answer #10 “Writing the truth is very liberating. How do you feel when the book is finally out and being acknowledged by the public?”

So, the 10th question is “Writing the truth is very liberating. How do you feel when the book is finally out and being acknowledged by the public?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

Good to hear positive comments

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

Whenever one of my books is launched, I feel like a parent that comes home from the hospital with a new baby!

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

I was excited and it was a huge accomplishment for me having ignored writing my book for a decade.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

Each time I publish a book and the book is widely received and celebrated, I feel elated and celebrate my efforts and my readers.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Generally, I am walking on clouds during this period of the process. However, there is an element which like to comment on what they “think” you said than what you actually wrote. So, I have dealt with negative backlashes from groups who never read my books and have no clue of what I actually said. They, in turn, try to turn their fiction into reality.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

I always feel apprehensive just before publishing, worrying if the book is good enough, entertaining enough in narration, and worrying about if my readers will enjoy it. But once the book is out, there is a sense of accomplishment and excitement in anticipation of the first review to come in, which gives me a sense of what the reader took from my book.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

It feels exhilarating and there is deep sense of satisfaction and freedom from having expressed what I know out there into the world. It is even more fulfilling to see the reviews shared by readers as to how the books have changed their personality and the way they see and experience life! I am extremely grateful and happy to see the way my books have gone into the world and inspired people.

It takes everything I’ve got to write, rewrite and revise my books so I often feel tired and drained when I’m done, but when I finally get that finished, published, glossy new book in my hot little hands, I feel like I’ve just accomplished something important.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Finally getting some acknowledgement by the public and being interviewed 3 times by the internet radio station of Chat and Spin.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

My biggest concern will be if the public will be just as opened as the first book

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

I feel a weight is slowly lifting from my shoulders. My book is to help people as we motivate one another. I ow feel proud that I accomplished something I thought I’ll never do.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Ecstatic

June Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies Author Interview Answer #9 “As a non-fiction writer, what is the challenge you face when writing your book(s)?”

Some of our group author participants are also being interviewed through Author Live Chat with Fans session! Click here to book a session for yourself!

So, the 9th question is “As a non-fiction writer, what is the challenge you face when writing your book(s)?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

Being sure of the sources, correct and true information

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

With a full-time legal career and part-time teaching job, it is challenging to find the time to write.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

As a non- fiction writer I wouldn’t say that I face a challenge peculiar to me as a none fiction writer but sometimes I do wish I have the exact photo of certain incidence I am referring to in my book.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

The major challenge I face is funding.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

The toughest challenge for me is gaining reader interest. I think it is harder selling a nonfiction piece than it is for a fictional work. Society seems to want to escape from reality and I am over here, waving my book, saying, “Pay attention to this reality!” It is almost counterintuitive.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

How much I can possibly tell without hurting someone else or divulging private information.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

To keep the book interesting till the end so that the readers feel hooked to continue reading and not feel like they are reading an academic text book!

Living a life that is worthy of my calling. I have my faults.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Being very focus also got to be discipline that includes making commitments to the task at hand as a non-fiction writer when writing my books.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

This was my first. Busy with my 2nd outobiography. Just don’t know from where I should begin and which details is should put in.

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

I cried writing my books So it’s my emotions and how badly I been scared due to my past. I realize I have to get out my feelings.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Putting the content in front of the viewers, so they can understand your message

June Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies Author Interview Answer #8 “Have you feared rejection or being judged by your family and friends with the topics you choose to discuss in your book?”

So, the 8th question is “Have you feared rejection or being judged by your family and friends with the topics you choose to discuss in your book?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

Nope

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

When I wrote my first book, I was very concerned with how others would view my book. Now that I have written 3 books or so, I am more concerned with how I view my book. If I like my book, that is more important than what other’s think.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Not really, because I believe I am now in the driver seat of my life, therefore friends and family opinions is not something I worry about when writing my book. What’s important to me is that I am on a mission to transform lives and to make the world a better place. I am prepared to withstand friends and family judgement as someone who stand for the truth. It’s so true that if you are truly bent on creating change, you should be prepared to face opposition.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

No, I have no worries about the response of loved ones. They have been supportive.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

No, I was raised to think for myself and to say my peace. My words and works are mine to control and I let them land where they may. I’ve won countless awards and have had numerous people tell me how I have helped them or provided insights they would have never been exposed to. Yes, it stings when a friend or family member says they won’t read my books. I won’t lie. But, I never fear that. They love me, I love them, and I am making a difference. What more can I ask for?!?

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

Absolutely! I think every author fears rejection. But when we write personal stories, which almost always entail bringing in other people in our lives and ultimately, into our stories, it’s very unnerving to think about the prospect of sharing it to the world. We worry about who we may upset, will we get sued, will that person in my book ever talk to me again? My advice is to write freely; don’t get blocked by possible repercussions. Get the story out on paper then begin working on the concerning issues when revisions begin. We must be cautious about our descriptions and wording. It’s highly advised to speak with the characters in our books for permissions and to settle uncomfortable conflicts before publishing.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

Initially I did fear but I was writing about exactly that in my first book – how to get over the fear of rejection and be authentic and express yourself. So I personally used the tools and techniques that I share in my book to get over my own fears!

Oh yes. Most of mt supporters are people who I know online. I don’t think my friends at home understand my vision. But that’s Okay, they are where they are in their views and can accept that, but life still goes on for me. Jesus taught that a prophet is not really accepted and understood by their homeboys and neither is a visionary. It scares them I guess when people buck tradition.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

I have to pressed on by overcoming rejection and adversity by moving forward.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

I didn’t fear it, but yes there was family members which was shocked because I was so honest

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

Yes and my family has judged me yet they don’t know me on both sides They know of me and not who I am as a person. Only few read my book with judgmental attitude yet that can’t stop me from telling my stories.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

No

Some of our group author participants are also being interviewed through Author Live Chat with Fans session! Click here to book a session for yourself!

So, the 7th question is “What do you primarily aim to acheive with your book?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

Change people’s perception

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

I try to share practical tips that my readers can use to become a successful author or college instructor.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

To help people moving away from the path of depression and helping many to fulfil their potential as 92% of the world population according to statistics fail to fulfil their potential. Become #1 best seller, on Amazon, and use my book as a platform for my newly launched workshop “How To Turn Your Adversity To Triump” and speak internationally on my redefinition of Adversity and my right key Strategies to handle Adversity plus the guidelines to follow to overcome life difficulties.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

The primary aim of my writings is to provide new knowledge.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

I have a term I like to use, “cogent elucidation.” By this, I mean a way of understanding something, in a very logical way, that which is new or hard to understand. So, in many ways, I act as an interpreter, emissary, ambassador, teacher, etc. to help bring understanding to the reader about something I obviously felt driven to write about.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

I write to share my experiences with others. I’ve always felt it was my duty to share what we learn with others. I hope that my stories inspire others by letting them know that there is always a way out of a bad situation. Despite there not being any overnight remedies for life, if we dissect the issues around us and strive to find solutions, we’ll find there is always one.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

To inspire and motivate people to become self-confident, fall in love with themselves, be authentic, to live life to the fullest, to savour every moment with mindful living and to enjoy their own company.

The objective of my book is to bring hope to people who have suffered from childhood trauma and depression, to raise mental health aware with the general public concerning the humanity of “the mentally ill, and to challenge the stock Hollywood movie stereotypes of what really constitutes mental illness. I also want to raise awareness that there is significant pain involved, but with tender loving care, acceptance and proper treatment, and faith in God, recovery is not only possible but probable.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Want to become best seller with my book relating to the powerful subject topic.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

For people to turn to the Lord

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

The goal is to use my story as an example of why not to give up on life when we go through trials and tribulations. When life gives you lemons you make a lemon detox to get rid of the toxic in ad around us. For we go through things for a reason and may we learn from it.

June Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies Author Interview Answer #6 “Did you use references from other sources/facts/science when writing your book?”

June Group Author Interview for Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies authors

Hello everyone! It’s time to reveal the answers for all 12 questions answered by 12 author participants in the June Group Author Interview, in the 12 genres, 12 authors, 12 months and 12 questions series! The support from Non-Fiction/Memoirs/Biographies authors was amazing as we have 12 authors participating in this group author interview.

Some of our group author participants are also being interviewed through Author Live Chat with Fans session! Click here to book a session for yourself!

So, the 6th question is “Did you use references from other sources/facts/science when writing your book?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

My book TOXIC CAPITALISM has over 500 sources of information mentioned

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

Yes.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Not really, but when I refer to a quote or statement or view of someone I refer to the individual but I didn’t reference my book as it’s my life experiences really.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

Of course, provided the nonfiction book was not a memoir, sources are necessary, as are facts. However, facts need not be scientifically proven. For instance, I can say I saw a spirit ~mmam. That could be a fact; it could also be an imagination. How do I scientifically prove my experience? Nevertheless, if I say my cousin and I saw an mmam, it can no longer be an imagination, but a fact. The ability to prove the experience to cynics becomes irrelevant.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Yes, I think you owe it to the reader to do a well-researched non-fiction book. Of course, you shouldn’t just restate the works of others. I also think a good portion of a book should be the author’s understanding of a subject, personal experiences, professional experiences, observations, etc. This is what makes the book special and truly the author’s own work. Otherwise, you’d be better served just reading a Wikipedia article.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

No, all of my stories are taken from my own real life experiences.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

No, I did not. It was a sharing of my story and experiences.

I used the internet to research a few facts in my book and to gain a better understanding of my backstory.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Yes I do use references from other sources and facts when writing my book.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

No, because it is about my life, I already went through it

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

The only reference I used was my memory from what all I witness and went through in life.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Yes

So, the 5th question is “There are cases of non-fiction books being fabricated with false and misleading information. How much truth should a non-fiction book hold?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

In my case all information had to be checked and certified as correct information.

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

If the nonfiction book is intended as an instruction manual or guide, it should be 100% accurate and true.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

For me I should say 100℅ of truth, it’s either you keep it real or it’s not.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

A nonfiction book ought to contain the whole truth and be devoid of propaganda.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

I have a strict rule that a non-fiction book becomes fiction the first time a false, or fabricated, element is deliberately introduced and portrayed as real and true. This does not mean one can’t do role playing scenarios or give hypotheticals. But, apart from these exceptions, it must be true always to be non-fiction.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

If it’s a non-fiction or memoir book, it absolutely must be factual. It’s not uncommon for an author to use creative non-fiction, for instance, in memoir, when we recall an exact detail – example, maybe it wasn’t a bright, sunny day or perhaps the red dress was really green although we remember it as red, the description of one of the character’s jobs has been changed to protect identity. These examples stated are just a few to demonstrate how truth may be altered, as memories are as the storyteller remembers something. And as far as changing names and occupations of characters goes, it is to protect identity and should be declared in the front matter of the book as a disclaimer. This is all acceptable for writing non-fiction – making up events and characters is not.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

You can always incorporate some fictional aspects and stories into a non-fiction book if that is required to drive a point home or explain things better. If you are advocating for authenticity and realism in your books then I highly recommend keeping the entire content real and true.

It should all be accurate to the best of the author’s knowledge, especially if it’s going to be a memoir. We as authors have an awesome responsibility to be true to the truth.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

As a writer of non-fiction book the truth got to be told with total honesty.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

It must be full off truth. I just changed some of the names in my book

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

I feel the truth should be told regardless of how the story is. Just as pure as fire can be so should the truth. certain people feel the truth should be kept a secret but on the truth will set you free inn ay and every situation.

So, the 4th question is “Have you felt called in some way to write a book on a given topic?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

My books are purely generated by by own choice

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

Before I wrote my first book, I felt called to become a book author. I’m so glad I decided to go for it!

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Yes, the title of my book was an instruction from God that I should write the book titled ” Triumph In The Midst Of Adversity” in 2007 at a time it seems my walls were crumbling. My twin daughters were going in and out of the hospital with doctors making the situation worse.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

The answer depends on who does the calling. Yes, I have written publications to satisfy the need I saw.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Yes, in all three of my books, I felt a great need to write them. We arrest over 2.2 million students a year for innocuous offenses no adult would ever be charged with. So, my Restorative Justice books were intended to interrupt the school-to-prison pipeline. Then, my archetype and allegory resource book was written to help my fellow writers.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

I’m not sure about a calling. But I can say with certainty that when I get an idea about something, I’m sure to write or talk about it in some method, whether it be by a new book or writing on my blog. If I learn something new, I feel compelled to share with others.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

Both my books were born out of a strong inner calling to share my life experiences as a way to inspire people to choose something greater in their own lives.

I have felt called to write inspirational books and poetry and books about God since early childhood.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Yes I was challenged in a very strong way to write this recent title book After Windrush Scandal: British Government Broken International Law in Shocking History Revelations relating to my background of studying International Law.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

The Lord layed it on my heart, to speak about my life

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

After praying to God about my life thanksgiving 2014 did I feel He answered my prayers regarding Him using me for His purpose but my soul sake. I was at the lowest part in my life and after praying I felt the need to pursue my dream I dreamed in August 2010. Yes. Most of my books are based on what I experienced in life from my perspectives.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Yes.

So, the 3rd question is “Have you written anything based on your life experiences?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

The book contain many references to real life experiences

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis

Yes, all of my books are based on the lessons I learned as an author or college instructor.

3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Yes the entire book ” Triumph In The Midst Of Adversity” was written based on my life experience.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

I have published hundreds of articles that portray my experiences on my website. Each article focuses on a particular experience in childhood, teenage years, early adulthood, or adulthood. Some of the publications were in response to popular assertions that such experiences could not be real.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Yes, all of my writing is based on my life experiences and knowledge. Being a Restorative Justice practitioner, my first two books were about Restorative Justice in the school system. These books were Unbroken Circles for Schools: Restoring Schools One Conflict at a Time and Unbroken Circles for Schools: Training Scenarios. Being a culturalist, and award-winning author, I do a number of specialty edits based on culture, character archetype, and character allegory. A good number of stories I edited were just horrid. The writers had no clue what allegory their character’s archetype was imparting, the culture of the characters, etc. So, that is when I wrote my most recent book, A Quick Guide to Archetypes & Allegory.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

All my books are written based on my own life experiences. My books cover topics such as: growing up as an emotionally neglected child, living with a narcissistic mother, finding forgiveness, menopause humor, growing my self-esteem, travel observations, and how I kept a marriage going strong despite all the curveballs along the way.


7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

Yes, everything in my books is based on my own experiences in life. It is real to the core!

Because I don’t have a fiction imagination , all my writings are based on the objective realities in my own life, even my poetry books, and the many hard lessons I’ve learned throughout my long life, I’ve seen a lot of the world’s history go by and have learned a lot of hard lessons based on my own mistakes. I am a survivor of intense childhood trauma, sexual assault and serious mental illness. But I am just a regular person who had to navigate a rather callous mental health system alone and still succeeded in gaining good health, and I think it’s a story worth sharing.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Yes I have written various events on my life experiences by keeping a dairy.


10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

Yes, this is my autobiography.

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

Yes. Most of my books are based on what I experienced in life from my perspectives.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson

Yes.
