Questions #6

Hello, Everyone!

If you have questions for me, you can leave it in the comment area below, ask me on any of my social media pages (all linked in the sidebar or below), or email me at Now on to the questions!


1. A common idea entwined with authors is that they are socially inept, how true is that? -Tim

I wouldn’t say that I am socially awkward, but I also wouldn’t say that I am the type to go out with a bunch of people either. So not inept, but not particularly fond of being super social.


2. Are you willing to read/ review other an avid readers novel? -Jessy

If you are willing to do a swap; meaning you read/ review one of mine and I will read/review yours. Email me at and let me know that you are coming from my website.


3. I am wondering if you think I should self-publish or traditionally publish. -Anonymous


Look the bottom line is that there are pros and cons to both and I cannot tell you what would work best for you. I self-publish because at this time I wish to remain anonymous and I want complete control over my novels. But other people may not have the same views as me. So my advice is make a pro/con list and find what will work best for you.


4. Do you outline or are you a panser?  -Adam

I outline, but if I feel like the story should move in a different direction, then I will re-outline to accommodate the changes I want. The post I linked you too is slightly outdated, but only in the headings I use for my note cards.


5. What inspires you to write? – Katie

The things I see around me. I have said this before, but the Recovering Collection started as a way to help me mentally. I was struggling with my past slamming against my present and it was not good. My life inspired me to write Recovering is an Art and then the lives of those around me inspired me to keep going.

Absinthe was inspired by a dream I had.

Wolf Series was inspired by the family and friends that helped me start my author journey.


That is all for today.

Be free and keep reading!

Ta, ta.
