Thanks to Roxanne at Bewitching Book Tours I had the opportunity to conduct a mini interview with Sherry Soule, author of Beautifully Broken. The concept was to generate buzz about the book with a James Lipton sort of seemingly random questionnaire, short and sweet, yet adding insight into the process behind a book. Beautifully Broken is available now and if my reviewer is any indication, and I think she is, then adding this book to your shopping list would be a very good thing. Look for that review in the next few days.
I'd also like to extend my thanks to both Roxanne and Sherry. The entire process has been a blast! Now, onto the fun book stuff:)
1. What is your writing process like? Do you keep organized notes? Do you designate a set time for
writing each day?
Don’t really have a writing process. Don’t really keep notes. No time set aside.
But I try to write every day, and usually only keep notes when I have to stop or I think of something and
need to jot it down to work on later.
2. Do you have music that you listen to for inspiration? If so, what do you listen to? If not, what inspires
Usually I prefer it silent, so I can concentrate. Or I like listening to classical on occasion.
3. How do you celebrate finishing a book?
I wipe the blood, sweat, and tears from my face. LOL I don’t really celebrate. Should I? Maybe your
followers can give me some ideas.
4. Why did you choose a witch as a main character for your book?
I’ve always had a soft spot for magic and witches. It just seemed like a good fit.
5. What is easier to write- the hero, the heroine, or the villain?
Villain. They can be snarky, mean, and multi-dimensional characters. Fun to write.
6. Favorite character that you have written?
One not yet published. About a heroine who has angelic powers. But I do love my Shiloh. She is a lot like
me. I’m always putting my foot in my mouth.
7. One thing readers would be surprised to know about you?
Although, my prose is dark, I’m a total goofball.
8. Favorite witch book? movie?
Book: Anne Rice’s “The Witching Hour”
Movies: “Bell, Book, and Candle” and “The Craft”
Thirteenth Daughter. Heritage Witch. Demon Slayer.
They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Whispering Pines. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about an old witch’s curse.
