We have come to an end of the April author interview session with question number seven. Romance and Erotica books have a huge number of fans all over the world. What do you think they want to achieve through their writings? Money, fame or pure fun? What do they hope to achieve through your writing journey? What’s their message to readers? Why must readers give their book a try? We have asked this question to all 7 authors as their stories are capable of shaping the mind of young readers. It’s time to know what all SEVEN Romance & Erotica authors think about this. A couple of days earlier, we revealed the answers for Question #6“Can you shape the thoughts of readers?” For those of you reading this post and not knowing what’s going on, we interviewed Romance and Erotica authors last month. You can click on the authors’ names below to learn about them more. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all seven authors who took part in this author interview!
This month, we are interviewing Young Adult authors and if you have any questions for them, please send in your question via this link. It will take less than 5 minutes. I promise! 🙂
Here is the answer to the 6th question: “What do you hope to achieve through your writing journey? What’s your message to your readers? Why must they give your book a try?”
1) Author #1 Anne Conley
My books, for the most part, are about real life, real situations, and real people overcoming adversity and finding love in the process. As for what I hope to achieve, that is two-fold. I would like to make a living with my writing, which is the only career path I’ve ever travelled that I actually enjoy. So, making a living doing what I love is a definite priority, but I also want readers to know they aren’t alone on their journey through life. Other people have problems too, even if my characters are fictional, there are ways to deal with situations.
2) Author #2: Marie Lavender
I think what I hope for is that I can touch readers through a good story. There’s always that hope that they will take something away from what they have read, either through the characters or a location in the story. But, mostly, I just hope to give readers an escape, a brief respite from the stressors of life. What more can you ask for with a good book? I believe the literary world can be limitless. A book is a portal into another universe.
3) Author #3: Emily Eck
As I said before, my current series deals with the plight of undocumented youth in the United States. I have another book in my head that I want to write next, and it deals with a woman with a severe stuttering problem. This book is a work of pure fiction, but I’m a stutterer. As the book has formulated in my head, I’ve found myself becoming emotionally attached to it. It is the same way with my current series with Elle and J, I’ve grown attached to them as characters.. I am a passionate person. It drips from my pores, so it flows into my books. I can’t help but be passionate about the topics my books address.
As a child, my stuttering was a curse that turned me into the “quiet girl.” Ten years of speech therapy and learning to not let other people’s insults leave me a mess of tears has made me the strong woman I am today. I actually gave a training a few years ago on public speaking. Who knew the stutterer would not only be speaking in public, but giving a training to others on how to speak publicly?! The passion I feel for this is woven into every aspect of this book I am dying to write. She is a singer who stutters, the only time her words flow freely being when she is on stage. The rhythm of music often creates this situation for stutterers where our words flow freely. Of course, there is an incredibly hot speech therapist who helps her though it, and ultimately aids her in attempting to achieve her dream of making it big in the music business. As with the L&J series, you are going to get swept away in a passionate love affair, but you are also going to learn something about people that you never knew– number one being never finish a word or sentence for a stutterer. It really annoys us 🙂
Well I hope to continue writing. To not lose faith in myself. As an Indie-Author I face a lot of challenges. It’s hard, but having a reader tell me that they loved my book? That’s the best feeling ever! Not even chocolate can beat that 🙂
My books are dark. They are raw, gritty and as real as it gets. Not everyone is going to like The Tainted Twins and I’m fine with that. It’s my story, I wrote it the way I wanted it.
If you want a darker, emotional read that will rip your heart to pieces and soothe your soul with gentle poetry give my books a try. You might be pleasantly surprised 😉
I hope to create a road map to demonstrate to the man how to recognize and embrace the natural Dom within. I want to demonstrate to the women how to help him unlock that. I have some simple, practical advice.
My message to the readers as to why they should read Dom Wars. I want to break the mold on Dom/sub books. I plan on showing the readers that what is written in fiction is shit. You don’t need fancy tools or even go in the clubs to be involved in BDSM. Find your own kink. And also, the readers should read Dom Wars because I pour my heart and soul into my writing, and I think they will see that when they read it.
Great Jas, just what an author wants to do, Sell ourselves. I’m hoping that for a few hours or a few days that my stories take the reader away from their own lives. My readers are mostly women and yes there are some men in there too. But women are taking care of their jobs and coming home and taking care of their families.
So when they pick up one of my books I hope that I can take them away from their busy hectic lives and show them in the end that true love does exists.
And when they read my blog on WordPress Sex w/Annie they will see that I do have the loving relationship with great sex.
But my life hasn’t always been easy. I live with Chronic pain and have for the last 25yrs.
I got lucky because I have a husband that never wavered in the love he has for me. Couples need to remember the vows they took. They have to remember why they married each other.And that shit happens. Our lives don’t always go as planned.
Sammy’s story in part is my story. A young widow who finds her one true love. But not before she had to endure years with a verbally abusive man. And when her husband dies in an accident Sammy has to find a way to forgive herself for letting a man abuse her for so long. She vows to never let it happen again. That is exactly what I did.
Being a Jersey girl doesn’t mean we have rich husbands and play dress up all day. We are not all “Real housewives of NJ.” We do have a certain attitude and most of the time we don’t take any crap. My husband loves that about me. In fact he loves everything about me. I got lucky the second time around as I did get my second chance at life and love. Just like Sammy did. I like a happy ending. I like it when I’m finished reading a book and I smile because it all worked out in the end.
Second Chances Sammy’s story is that book. It has the sex, the drama, the suspense and even more kinky sex. It’s my first and believe me I did the best I could at the time. If you see a few spelling or grammar errors just read over them. I had it re-edited and that’s what I got back. You get what you pay for.
Master Mikes story is next. Hoping to have it finished by Summer. When I asked my readers what character they wanted me to write about next all of them said, Master Mike Sloan. And I promise this book will be done the right way the first time around. The story is amazing. I love where it’s going and I hope you will too. So read the first because I made sure most of the crew of characters are in both books.
My goal is to entertain the reader—get her mind off the real stresses of life, and sit back and just enjoy. I mostly live in an imaginary world because of my over-active imagination—I like to bring visitors if they want to come. My fictional stories are purely for the purpose of entertainment.
If there are people who just want to read something fun, sort of romantic, and kind of mysterious, they’ll like my books. I’m not deep or heavy . . . well, I’m sort of heavy—but that’s entirely another story.
