Authors in the Spotlight 1/19

In today's Authors in the Spotlight, we have authors Angel Scott, Stacy McWilliams, and Guy Thair!

  
---------------------------------------------------------------- 


Name: Angel Scott or Angel H Scott

How long have you been published? since 2012

What's the worst part about being published? Everyone can see your books and then give you bad reviews or comments once they read your work.

What's the best part about being published? Being an author! And to know when someone likes your book!

Are you self published or did you go through a publishing company? I am with a publisher called Lots Cave for my taboo, romance, novels, self published for my Weekend Gone Wrong Series, and my vampire steamy romance is with a publisher who is also an author herself. Her name is Nicola C. Matthews.

*What are the highs, if any? The highs are the fact that I had an editor, help with the cover, and help with the promotion for the publisher. The highs for self publishing is that you can do all of it yourself for free with create space and you can re-do things for your books when you want to and there is no deadline.

*What are the lows, if any? The low for the publisher is that you don't get all your money. And they don't always like the pictures I pick. The low for self publishing is no editing without money.

What is the name of your book(s)? Jinx'd, Collaring Ash, The Taming of Andy Savage - all by Angel H Scott and Nicola C. Matthews; Trick Or Treat, The Lesson, The Jailbird, The Punishment, My Handsome Brother, My Horny Cousin - All written by Angel Scott; Daddy's Little Valentines is written by Angel Scott and Randi B. King; Mamma's Boy is written by Angel Scott and Larry Scott. Weekend Gone Wrong: The Nightmare Returns, The Return is wrote by Angel H Scott

Was it/were they an easy write for you? Yes. Had to look up BDSM some though for the taboo books.

What's the hardest part about writing a book? Coming up with new names. And trying to add new descriptive words.

What's the easiest part about writing a book? The ideas are endless. The plot is easy to come up with as well.

Where can interested readers purchase their copy of your book(s)? Lots Cave website, Barns and Noble, Smashwords, or Amazon.

Do you have any future projects in the works? Yes. I re-wrote Weekend Gone Wrong. My very first book.

*Is there a tentative release date? Either January or February 2017.

Do you have any social media sites that you would like to share with my readers? Facebook.

Name: Stacy McWilliams 

How long have you been published? Around one and a half years 

What's the worst part about being published? Putting your work out there and letting everyone scrutinise it.

What's the best part about being published? Getting reviews, interacting with readers.

Are you self published or did you go through a publishing company? Self published 

*What are the highs, if any? Hitting number 2 on amazon UK was a high point of last year and having someone contact me to tell me I was a favourite author was incredible. 

*What are the lows, if any? Bad reviews or someone really hating your work is the worst. It really knocks your confidence and makes you question why you write, but you get over it and become stronger.

What is the name of your book(s)? Candlelight, Luminosity and Ignition. I also have one about to be released called Destroyed by Deception.

Was it/were they an easy write for you? Yes and no, when writing it's easy to get lost in the story, but if you take a break or lose confidence it can be hard to get it back. 

What's the hardest part about writing a book? Editing. It's hard passing your book to someone to pick it apart and it's vital to find someone you can trust to edit and to work with.

What's the easiest part about writing a book? The mid part of the story is probably the easiest for me. It's when I'm engrossed and enjoying what I'm writing the most.

Where can interested readers purchase their copy of your book(s)? Amazon, iBooks, Nook, B&N.

Do you have any future projects in the works? Yes I have two finished pieces of work, one almost finished and two books to write before summer. 

*Is there a tentative release date? Yes, I have a new release on January 21st and one hopefully for June with another in October. 

Do you have any social media sites that you would like to share with my readers? Yes, you can find me on Facebook, on Twitter, or on Instagram

Name: Guy Thair (blogging as dalecooper57 since 2012)

How long have you been published? Only a couple of months

What's the worst part about being published?
Not instantly selling loads of books, I suppose. Honestly, I'm just thrilled I've had a book published.

What's the best part about being published? HAVING A BOOK PUBLISHED!! It's a great feeling, especially since it was all a bit of an accident in the first place.

Are you self published or did you go through a publishing company? A small publisher helped me get it into print, the same one who had previously published some short stories I'd written, in anthologies of work by new writers.

*What are the highs, if any? *What are the lows, if any? Knowing what I know now, I might have published The Wrong Stuff myself, but the publisher was very helpful so I'm not complaining, particularity since they're doing half the promotion for me.

What is the name of your book(s)? The Wrong Stuff.

Was it/were they an easy write for you? It was surprisingly easy, although I didn't know I was writing a novel at the time, so I suppose that removed the element of pressure to write. I use writing prompts from other bloggers to inspire me and, in November of 2015, I began a story based on the single word, "Stuff". After reaching the end of the initial post I thought the story was worth continuing, so I decided to use each subsequent prompt to write a new chapter, until to my surprise I had done that 35 times and had essentially written the book. It was unedited and totally improvised when I wrote it and that's exactly how the publisher took it (there were four typos). I even designed the cover myself.

What's the hardest part about writing a book? I can't think of anything specific, it was a most entertaining experience.

What's the easiest part about writing a book? I really did just sit down and make it up as I went along, without any plan about plot, characters, or anything, all based on the word "Stuff".

Where can interested readers purchase their copy of your book(s)? On Amazon.

Do you have any future projects in the works? I intend to write a sequel to The Wrong Stuff, (the publisher asked for one as soon as they read the draft of this book) but I'm always writing stories on my blog, Diary of an Internet Nobody.

*Is there a tentative release date? Not as yet.

Do you have any social media sites that you would like to share with my readers? Twitter, Facebook, and http://www.diaryofaninternetnobody.com/
