Today we have author Rebekah Turner, author of Chaos Bound for an interview. Thanks for joining us Rebekah. Sit back and enjoy the interview.
Did you always wanted to be a writer? If not what did you want to be?
I've always wanted to tell stories. I still remember when I was a little girl and my parents found out I'd told a serialized story about a family of unicorns, which had been written and illustrated in the front and back of my dad's expensive encyclopedias.
How long did it take to get your first book published?
Do you do another job except for writing and can you tell us more about it?
I do freelance graphic design when my kids are looking the other way.
What is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarize it in less than 20 words what would you say?
Chaos Bound: Lora Blackgoat's latest investigation puts her in the crosshairs of a merchant with a taste for blood sport.
Who is your publisher? Or do you self-publish?
My publisher is Escape Publishing.
How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it?
Six months, but I'm getting faster!
What can we expect from you in the future? ie More books of the same genre? Books of a different genre?
More gritty urban fantasy with some slap and tickle on the side and a flawed heroine with attitude.
What genre would you place your books into?
Do you have a certain routine you have for writing? ie You listen to music, sit in a certain chair?
After the kids are down, I always made a cup of tea and put on my writing music.
Do you read all the reviews of your book/books?
I try not to look too closely, otherwise I think I would start obsessing. But I do take a peek, because I want to know if people are enjoying the story or not.
Do you choose a title first, or write the book then choose the title?
I always write the book first.
How do you come up with characters names and place names in your books?
I collect them like stamps. I love grabbing interesting names off the internet and the world around me. I've even made myself a database of names I can refer back to when I need one.
Which format of book do you prefer, eBook, hardback, or paperback?
I've been reading a lot of eBooks at the moment, because of the convenience. If I absolutely love a book, I'll buy a hardcopy as well.
What is your favorite book and Why? Have you read it more than once?
One of my favorite books is One for the Money, by Janet Evanovich. I read it so many times the spine split.
Do you think books transfer to movies well? Which is you favorite/worst book to movie transfer?
I think some do, but not often. My favorite would have to be a toss up between the Hunger Games and the Princess Bride.
Your favorite food is?
Burnt fig and caramel ice cream.
Your favorite color is?
Your favorite Author is?
One author I love is JR Ward. She has an awesome talent of combining sexy action with snappy prose.
