So, the 2nd question is “Do you hide the scriptures in your book or not fully quote in order to accommodate everyone including those who are not of your faith with the aim of delivering the message?”


1) Author #1 : Todd Johnson

I am to put the word out there like the rest of the book is written.


2) Author #2: Else Byskov 

Spiritual science is not faith based

3) Author #3:  Sandra Lott

No I do not. The Word of God says “if anyone is ashamed of Me and My words,the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when He comes in His glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.” I write for the glory of God, not man. It is when God is glorified that people are touched and healed.


4) Author #4:  Sharon Farber 

I make no references to scriptures. Mediumship has been practiced for thousands of years on all continents and isn’t restricted to any one faith. If people have a problem with the concept of mediumship they’re unlikely to be reading my book.


5) Author #5:  Mitch Gannon

No. I do call God, “Higher Power”, “The Universe”, “Source”, or “Higher Self” and use all five interchangeably depending on the context through which I am speaking about.


6) Author #6:  Hemal Radia

When we speak from the place we are all from we all resonate regardless of the words we use… there is an inner awareness and familiarity to what is being shared. Some may not want to see it or refuse to see it and that is part of their journey at this time, which is fine. Others open to it will be lit up because they are hearing/reading what they have been searching for and gives them the confirmation and confidence about their life.


7) Author #7:  Brina Tharishinee

Well, I never quoted any verses from the holy scriptures. The whole idea is of course, to accommodate a large range of readers and not confined to just one faith.


8) Author #8: Barry Rice

I use only 1 Scripture to lead reader to understand my earlier feelings of rejection by God


9) Author #9: Chris Batts

My book is not about religion or related scriptures, but about my direct spiritual experience with God and angels.


10) Author #10: Syl Sabastian

I’ll quote scripture where Appropriate, but seldom do. Our Spirituality does not conflict with any religion, and is practicable by all and enhances their religious practice significantly.


11) Author #11: Donald Smith

No I just just give them one verse which happens to be my absolute favorite 2 Corinthians 5:7 I think that verse pretty much answers everything

12) Author #12:  Rabjot

I capture the essence of scriptures.

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

So, the 1st question is “What are some experiences (if any) that shaped you as a spiritual writer?”


1) Author #1 : Todd Johnson

I would have to say the bible over all. But I never thought of it like spiritual writing.


2) Author #2: Else Byskov 

I encountered the spiritual science of Martinus

3) Author #3:  Sandra Lott

My passion for the Lord and how He has held my heart in His hand many times, from the hardships of being married to an alcoholic & drug addict, to the loss of my youngest son and my marriage. Needing to be loved so desperately, I sought the Lord. He healed my heart and gave me the passion to write. Each book I write are topics within that I myself, have learned and want to pass on to my readers.


4) Author #4:  Sharon Farber 

My book, Choosing to be a Medium: Experience & Share the Healing Wonder of Spirit Communication, was inspired by my personal journey into mediumship. I discovered a passion for the subject and endeavored to become a medium even though most people think you can’t learn to be one and need to be “born that way.” I persevered, and proved that one can learn to be a medium. I wrote the book to share that mediumship can be purposefully developed. I describe my journey and give step-by-step instructions, including many exercises, to give readers the opportunity to explore this fascinating field and develop their own mediumistic abilities. I also teach mediumship development classes, run a mediumship development circle, and lead mediumship development retreats.


5) Author #5:  Mitch Gannon

I have been a psychic, healer, and spiritual consultant for over 10 years which has shaped and formed the type of writing I do in this genre. Not only is this a career but part of my daily life that influences writing within spirituality.


6) Author #6:  Hemal Radia

My father passing away (putting a long story short) led me down the path of personal development that later led to spirituality. A search for greater meaning in the coincidences in my life led to discovering so much more and in time writing and teaching others to manifest in oneness with the magic that life and nature intended for us.


7) Author #7:  Brina Tharishinee

Not any in particular. I was just fascinated with the whole idea of rebirth and karma; went on to research on the topics and came up with a story.


8) Author #8: Barry Rice

My past of feeling rejected by my birth man and woman, feelings of being rejected by God (I was a bastard child as defined in Deuteronomy 23:2 (King James), teased by my childhood friends for same and being asked to leave a church by a minister after my service in Vietnam (veterans were being labeled as “Baby Killers”, and his statement that “The House of the Lord does not accept Baby Killers”. Later in life, after being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and being given 12 – 18 months to live, I was led to see in a sunrise that God had loved and accepted me all along and that He presents everyone with a multitude of blessings and opportunities with every sunrise.


9) Author #9: Chris Batts

My experience is known as a near death experience. My experience was from a suicide attempt. I crossed over to the other side, then I returned. On the other side, I met God and those I call angels in the spiritual realm. We spoke telepathically.


10) Author #10: Syl Sabastian

My entire Life since a Young Man, when I switched to Living via Attunement, which makes everything a spiritual affair. Some specific experiences which stand out are: Living in the desert with nothing, no electricity, no plumbing, no running water, nothing. A profound and fabulous experience. Having a restaurant on top of a mountain on a game-reserve where we got to know, hang out, and be friends with a group of Bushmen. And being homeless on the streets of Santa Monica, a fantastic and fun experience. There are many many others, too many to list.


11) Author #11: Donald Smith

My inspiration for writing comes from the personal journey from a non believer in Jesus Christ into a true believer in Jesus Christ for years I denied that there was a God and that he gave his son for our everlasting life but through my personal struggles I have come to realize for years I was totally wrong and have my life to him and I have a whole new outlook on life he gave me the will to live when in my darkest hours I wanted to die

12) Author #12:  Rabjot

Understanding of the essence of the spirituality encouraged me to be a spiritual writer

April Fantasy/Sci-fi Author Interview Answer #12 “How do you market and brand yourself as an author?”


Fantasy/Sci-fi Group Author Interview

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

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

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


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

This has been one of the hardest things for me, and I’m sure, other authors! One of the first things I’ve learned is to get involved in the writing community; other authors can be a great resource. I’ve gotten advice on building websites, newsletters, and social media, all to help me get my name out there as a fantasy writer. The most important thing is to really take in all you can from other authors, and use their skills. A close second is to know your genre. If you understand what fans of it want, then you know how to brand yourself to them. It’s these two things that really make up how I market and brand myself. If you want to see for yourself, check me out at https://www.facebook.com/enierstauthorfantasynovels/ https://twitter.com/NierstedtEric https://ericnierstedtauthor.com/


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

I try to be honest about who I am (an African American male) and what I draw my influences from (anime, manga, comics, books, movies, and trying to combine them into my literature.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

I use social media, mostly Instagram and Twitter, to market my work, but I’m also in the process of working on an author website.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

I have an active Facebook life, maintain a web site and blog, attend numerous fairs and participate in groups like this interview session. I also dabble in making book trailers for my books. My publisher does the catalog, funnel and Amazon work for me. At present, I am also pursuing transition to audiobooks and a podcast to go with it.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

I’m learning something new about this every single day! It’s a journey, but I think consistency is key. If money for ads is a concern, then start off with something small, then gradually build. Learn what works and what doesn’t, so one day you can get the most for your buck.


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

I mostly use social media to market and brand myself. Hootsuite is a great program I use in laying out my marketing/branding over a week at a time across multiple social media outlets. I have to do a lot of it myself, which makes it harder, but it also puts the responsibility on me.

Famed for his G.A.N.G.S.T.A.R acrostic writing style (it stands for Generally Appreciating Notable Genres by Stating Their Applicable Relevance), Mr Ben, as he is popularly called, is a published author, poet, novelist, essayist, voice-over artiste and speaker


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

I don’t have the funds for lots of advertisements, and I don’t get invited to talk shows to talk about my books, so I mostly use social media.


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

Most of the marketing I’ve done has been via my website/blog, interviews, guest blogging, and social media. I’ve also sold my own books in person (book tables, and contacted brick and mortar stores to sell them on consignment).


10) Author #10: David Chylde

My “rock singer, strippers, dark city life” pretty well sets the tone for prom copy and artwork.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

Social media is a great way to network but also there is nothing compared to meeting people in real life. If you can sign up for a table at a book fair, definitely go for it. Same with registering for writers’ conferences.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

By posting my books on social media, helping other authors promote their work and doing book reviews.

April Fantasy/Sci-fi Author Interview Answer #11 “Are your books standalone or sequels?”

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

So, the 11th question is “Are your books standalone or sequels?”


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

My books generally turn out to be series; I’m not sure I could write a standalone at this point!


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

At the moment, they’re all standalone, but I do have a series or two planned for the future.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

Sequels. My book is the first in a six-book series. The second is in progress.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

Officially, they are sequels, but because the protagonist is different, and the former main character becomes a side character, or even an antagonist, they can stand alone. They also tend to take place at separate times and sometimes, decades later.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

My book, Premonition, is the first in a trilogy.


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

I plan my novels as trilogies, working to spread the story out into one complete set. Series are better to work with when it comes long, drawn out stories.

Standalone


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

All my books are islands, but if one were to read them all they would see a pattern and some repeat characters who seem to jump from one book to the other.


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

The books are a trilogy.


10) Author #10: David Chylde

This book will be a prequel to my dystopian series starting with Angel Hunt.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

So far, I have my science fiction trilogy and my standalone road trip book.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

Both. Chris Kringle’s Cops is a series, Captain Hook: Villain or Victim? is a stand alone and The Kamyla Chung Series is a compilation of stand alone books.

April Fantasy/Sci-fi Author Interview Answer #10 “What do you think about cliffhangers endings?”


Fantasy/Sci-fi Group Author Interview

Hello everyone! It’s time to reveal the answers for all 12 questions answered by 12 author participants in the April Group Author Interview, in the 12 genres, 12 authors, 12 months and 12 questions series!

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

So, the 10th question is “What do you think about cliffhangers endings?”


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

I think they can be a great way to keep readers interested. I generally think of the end of each chapter as small cliffhangers to keep readers hooked on the story.


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

If done right, and if thought provoking enough, they can be excellent. Like all endings it depends on the context surrounding the cliffhanger.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

I love reading and writing cliffhangers and it makes me feel really good when readers ask when the next book is coming out because it means I left a good cliffhanger.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

I like hill-hangers, if I can coin a new phrase. In the Wise Ones, I have wrapped up the stories of the characters, but the new hill to climb is set up for the next book.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

I’m guilty of writing cliffhangers, but I think if they’re not done well, then you might frustrate your readers. Ultimately, I want my readers to continue reading the series, not quit because they’re annoyed, so it can be a bit of a risk.


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

I love them because it makes the reader anticipate what’s coming next. It makes them hold on and wait for the next book. you hook more of them into reading your next book in the series.

The advent to the world as they exert their advantages and dis-advantages


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

I don’t like them, but if I ever decide to write a trilogy or series I suppose I might have to reconsider.


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

For a book in a series, I think it’s okay. I mean, at least the reader will eventually have closure. I’m not sure about stand-alone books. I guess it depends on the type of book and the purpose behind the cliff hanger. Still, I think it’s best to offer the reader some kind of closure at a book’s end.


10) Author #10: David Chylde

A book should be independent with enough drama at the end to make you want to advance.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

They definitely can set you up for the sequel.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

I like them. For me, as a reader, it builds anticipation and gives me something to think about.

April Fantasy/Sci-fi Author Interview Answer #9 “Do you have beta readers to provide you feedback before you finalize your manuscript?”


Fantasy/Sci-fi Group Author Interview

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

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

So, the 8th question is “Do you have beta readers to provide you feedback before you finalize your manuscript?”


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

I have given the story to friends and family, largely for different reasons. Some are really good with grammar and technical stuff, while others are better at story and character. Luckily, I also have fantasy fans to help me with genre-specific stuff as well.


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

Yeah, family and friends look over it and help edit mistakes and typos. They also provide feedback on the story itself.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

Yes, which was the most nerve-racking part of the entire process.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

I use four beta readers who have been good friends and helpful. One is a stickler for grammar and word choice. The others are ones who I use to check on logic and continuity. I have been guilty of making leaps of clarity and they catch me at this. I have an editor for the final work. However, if the story isn’t up to snuff after everyone going through it that many times, so be it. The publisher won’t be interested and it’s in their slush file.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

I do, but I’m always open to having more!


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

I have friends from my Navy career who help me with editing and feedback on my manuscript. They could be considered my beta testers.

No


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

I do now, but initially I didn’t know anything about them, so I just did my best, said a prayer, and crossed my fingers.


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

I had plenty of beta-readers for the first two books. They were extremely helpful.


10) Author #10: David Chylde

A talent agent went through my work–and a publicist.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

Yes, I would love to get more input from beta readers.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

Yes

April Fantasy/Sci-fi Author Interview Answer #8 “How do you deal with constructive criticism/reviews?”


Fantasy/Sci-fi Group Author Interview

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

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

So, the 8th question is “How do you deal with constructive criticism/reviews? ”


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

I’m always looking for feedback on how I can improve. It’s not always easy, but I encourage people to be totally honest when they talk to me, or review. That said, there are occasions where I feel the story doesn’t need a particular change, but I would much rather hear suggestions and ideas then have someone be less then honest.


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

I try to see where they’re coming from and what I can take from the criticism to improve not just the story itself, but my writing as a whole, and all future stories.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

I just try to remember that they’re trying to help and I will be grateful once I’m finished.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

I think of criticism as a stepping stone. I usually cannot go back and change things, but I can avoid that pitfall the next time I write a book. I don’t get depressed. None of my books are perfect.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

I think it’s something to listen to criticism, especially if it might help make my story better, or in the case of a series, help the reader in the subsequent books, but it’s important to tell your story the way you know it needs to be told, too. At the end of the day, if I’m proud of what I’ve created, then that’s what matters most. People can be mean just for the heck of it.


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

I know I’m not a perfect writer and I’ve made mistakes in my manuscript and on my earlier published works. I don’t take it personally, I take it to heart and use it to make myself a better author.

Keep improving my writing skills


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

I realize they help me to become better at what I do. I know I have plenty of room for improvement so I welcome constructive criticism and advice.


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

They prick the ego, for sure. No one likes to hear the faults in their story. But no story is perfect. Even masters have gone back to revise books they’d published. So, the trick is to take it for what it is, and to learn from it.


10) Author #10: David Chylde

I’ll listen to anybody who isn’t just trying to trash me.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

I definitely try to learn from it.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

I respond to all of them with courtesy and professionalism. You have to take the good with bad and apply comments that work to help develop your craft.

So, the 7th question is “What is the most memorable feedback you’ve had so far from your readers?”


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

One of my beta readers said that he visualized Danny Trejo when he read a certain character. Writing a role that can be played by Machete is pretty damn cool!


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

With one of my books, Run, it got a five star review and deeply touched the reader as something that seemed so real and that was so engaging. All positive reviews stick with me, but that one sticks out the most.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

When my friend read it, she got really angry with me near the end when the climax happened, which I obviously can’t talk about.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

The best feedback I’ve gotten was from a publicist. She read Talismans and suggested I needed to move my crisis to the front of the story. I was puzzled, because, for me, losing ones memory and coming face to face with a dragon, that was the overarching crisis in the story, and that takes place in the first three pages. No, she corrected me. That crisis is completely cerebral. You need the crisis to be tangible and dramatic. Stealing the runestones and finding a thief needs to be far earlier in the story. I managed to get it into the second chapter, rewrote it completely and was able to get it published because of it.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

All my feedback is memorable! The good, the bad, the meh, all of it!


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

They love my characters, which means a lot to me. I based the family in my story around my own family. Their appreciation for these characters gives me a heartfelt appreciation for how I perceive my own wife and children.

”Great Job!”


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

“I love your book,” or “I love the way you write.”


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

One reader said they were ‘in love’ with The Purple Morrow. That was nice 🙂


10) Author #10: David Chylde

They like my hook: A rock singer faces the world of magic with the help of three stripper/hunters.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

When a reader told me they wanted to hurt my villain — that’s when I knew I made him successfully hateful, lol.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

That my picture book series, The Kamyla Chung Series, was very helpful to a teacher during her lessons. I write the books with teachers, parents and counselors in mind. It was nice to hear that my books were making a positive impact in classrooms.

So, the 6th question is “What kind of inventions do you write that could feasibly be science fact?”


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

I’m primarily a fantasy write, so I don’t have any inventions like that.


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

Some that are mostly just improvements of current technology, like a weapon making use of sound or electricity. Or a laser gun of sorts, or even gloves/gauntlets that can project things like fire and electricity. Those don’t seem to farfetched.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

I’m a fantasy author, so most of my world is based around magic. There aren’t many scientific inventions featured in my novel.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

I am hoping that someday I will invent a way to pay employees based on the calories they burn (mental and physical labor). That way, on a day when I come home exhausted, working as a middle school teacher, after making a million decisions on the fly, I’ll get a paycheck worthy of all the work. Also, maybe then they’ll believe teaching is a career on the par with being a doctor and a lawyer. By the way, no one can use my idea. I have already written it into my sci-fi manuscript called Dual.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

Premonition doesn’t have any inventions, since the world is based in magic.


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

I created a weapon called a Gunstar which fired rounds created through alchemy. It’s not 100% science fact but since a lot of alchemy is based on our own science today, it’s feasible.

The possibility of another earth existing alongside ours


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

Thought control and mind enslavement.


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

Probably none. That wasn’t something I thought about.


10) Author #10: David Chylde

I’m a firm believer in psychics and tarot card readers–that maybe?

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

I’ve seen a lot about proving the multiverse theory to be true and how particles could move between dimensions, something explored in my trilogy.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

In Chris Kringle’s Cops The First Mission, I added a weapon called a Bitter Ball. It sucks the jolly (their life essence) out of people. I could see a twisted politician searching for a weapon like this.

So, the 5th question is “What goes into building a world?”


1) Author #1 : Eric Nierstedt 

I primarily write urban and contemporary fantasy, which has fantasy taking place in the modern world. That means the surface world is the one we know, and my job is to create the world beneath it. So I have to decide how big this hidden world is. In some cases, it’s a whole realm, which means I have to think about where it’s located, how it’s hidden, and what kind of people populate it. In other cases, it’s more like hidden pieces of another world, buried in the fabric of modern society. In that case, it means figuring out how the world coexists in secret with our world, and just who the people that keep it secret are. It all depends on what kind of story you want to tell.


2) Author #2:  M.A.N. 

A lot of naming, some unsaid world history and rules of the setting, making characters that act according to their personality and not the plot, and a decision on the types of cultures that’ll be meshed together and explored in said world.


3) Author #3:  Peighton Weber 

What I do is I plan a world that I would want to live in because I know that my readers would want to live there too.


4) Author #4:  Lisa Lowell 

I love the work of Karen Azinger, who wrote about how a world has architecture, religion, government and many other facets, just like our world. Mentioning those things within your writing makes it seem more real, even if that architecture is floating from the bottom of a cloud and the government is run by rodents. Making a deliberate effort to sprinkle those pieces into the adventure creates a world for me.


5) Author #5:  Rachael Krotec 

Everything that might exist within our own! Government, religion, culture, language, fashion, etc. But like I said for the second question, I try and only include what’s necessary to understand the plot and/or character(s).


6) Author #6:  Mark Piggott

You have to mix it up, from terrain to names of towns and cities. The first world I designed was the island of Avalon, so it was a little easy to reuse some traditional names from the British Isles for it, but I also created some of my own names in there. you have to match the personality of the creatures with the names and the terrain. Goblins like dark, dank places, as do Dwarves, but you need to add in grand architecture to show the difference in the races. The one good thing with world building in a fantasy world is that the sky’s the limit. If you want a floating island, you can have a floating island, as long as you can explain why it floats.

Words on paper and its translations


8) Author #8: Steve Holder

A lot of imagination.


9) Author #9: Dyane Forde

Lots! You have to think about languages and their evolution across time and cultures, about people groups and their interwoven histories, about how they dress and speak and what makes them different from the other peoples populating the world… It’s a lot of intricate planning and development, but it’s worth it.


10) Author #10: David Chylde

Creating imagery that really puts you there. In my book, you truly feel like you’re in the dark underbelly of Atlanta.

11) Author #11: Irene Helenowski

I feel setting the scenery is important, so the reader can sense your surroundings with you.


12) Author #12:  Ellwyn Autumn 

Imagination, organization and flexibility.
