Hello all!  In honor of Inde Author month which was in (October but extended into the end of this month)  I was told that I would be included in the event this week, hosted by a blog but my interview was never posted so I am posting the interview questions here.  Read on and I hope you enjoy it.

Author Interview

Swept into the Darkness (Chronicles of the Celestial Book One) lataeya1

 

If someone looked at your browsing history right now, what kinds of things would we find?

 

If my browsing history was reviewed right now, sites related to book tours would be found.  I am in the process of making plans for my tour and I have been researching for the best tour company and package that will meet my book promotional needs.

 

Other than book publishing, you will also find lots of sites for stores that sell baby products and equipment.  I have a four month old baby boy and I am looking for an activity center and swing for him to be entertained with.

 

If you could write about any subject that is near and dear to your heart, what would it be and why?

 

The subject that is near and dear to my heart, that I would like to write about is my pregnancy and birth experience.  Despite the aches and pains that come with being pregnant and having a baby, it is truly a beautiful experience of transition that brings real magic into the lives of the people being affected.

Even though my memories will never fade, I just feel that my experiences and feelings will become immortal once they are documented through the written word.

 

Do you have a favorite song, album or playlist that you write to?

 

My favorite song is “All Cats are Gray” by The Cure.  I do not play music when I am writing.  I usually have the television on low.  Some people may wonder how can write with the television on, but it is very easy for me, because when I write I am transported into the characters and worlds that I create and I do not get distracted easily.

 

What was the first thing you did after the debut of the first book you wrote?

 

Swept into the Darkness is the second book I have written, but the first I have had published.  The first thing I did after the debut of my book was sent a message via Twitter and Facebook announcing the official debut and book availability.

 

Do you have any guilty pleasures?

 

My guilty pleasure is curling up on the sofa with a nice glass of Pinot Grigio and a good book.

 

What was your favorite book as a teen?

As a teenager my head was always buried in a book.  I had so many books that I favored so I cannot single out one book in particular but I did have a favorite series.  The Sweet Valley High books have a special place in my heart.  Once I read the first book I was hooked.  I loved reading and living the adventures of the twins Elizabeth and Jessica.

If an aspiring writer asked for advice, what would you tell them?

 

My answer would depend on what advice that asked me in particular, but I would tell them to write things they are passionate about, always be as descriptive as they can and be sure to draw in your readers by using good character development, detailed language and captivating plot conception.

 

What is your favorite movie?

I am what you can call a movie buff.  I love movies so much that I also do movie reviews  on my blog.  My favorite movie of all time is The Lord of The Rings trilogy.  It is also the best book to movie adaptation.  Jackson did an impeccable job staying true to Tolkien’s vision while making his own mark upon the world of cinema.

So much has been going on with my book since I last blogged about Swept into the Darkness.  The paperback version on my book will be coming out early October and will be sold on Amazon.com.  Currently I am reading the proof copy of the paperback.  I will be making some subtle changes within some of the chapters. It’s amazing the mistakes you can find even after you have read and reread the book several times and even had it edited multiple times!  October is also Indie Author month, and to celebrate all Indie authors I will be participating in a Facebook book promotion.  The event has been extended until the end of November so I will have a book cover spot on November 26th.  Also my official book release will be coming up soon and the actual dates will be announced via my site and twitter once I get those dates approved by my book release host.  That event will also take place on Facebook and will be by ” SPECIAL INVITATION ONLY.”  I am in the process of obtaining some nice prizes for my upcoming Goodreads promotion which will be announced within the next couple of weeks.  In addition to that I am looking for readers to review my book.  So if anyone is interested in providing me with a review please drop me an email and I can send a PDF copy of my book to be reviewed.  I am only looking for the serious reviewer.

As I am working on promoting Swept into the Darkness Chronicles of the Celestial book one, I am typing up book two and writing book three.  Busy, busy, busy.  Please note that this weekend I will post part three of my fall movie preview series.  I know that many of you have been coming on to look at my previews.  I apologize for being late with part three.  I just have been so busy with my book not to mention that I have a new baby at home.  🙂

Happy reading and writing!!!

Well Everybody.. I am back!  Back as a completely new person, with a new role…   My little bundle of joy entered the world on July 5th.  Its been quite an exciting challenge adjusting to motherhood and recouping from the delivery.  This is actually the first time I have sat in front of my laptop in weeks.  I am not really sure how long it has been but to tell you the truth it feels really good to be blogging again.  It feels great just to get my thoughts down and fingers back into the flow of writing.  My book promotion plan has been put on hold until I can get my son on an official schedule.  I know I have mentioned the schedule before but it is harder than I thought it would be.  My time really revolves around him at this point.  As far as my book is concerned I will be sticking to my original plans which includes submitting my press release, promoting through goodreads, twitter , Facebook and all of the other sites that encourage self publishing.  The paperback will be released early fall which will also be the beginning of my book tour launch.  I need to obtain some book reviews.  I will start the process of that as well.

My latest book profile can be found on bookdaily.com under my name LaTaeya Lane or the title of my book Swept into the Darkness.  The profile is still fairly new and I am still in the process of updating and making changes to the profile.  Also my video trailer is up and running live on you tube, so if people want to get the gist of what my book is all about you can click on the video link on my book page or just go directly to YouTube and type my name Lataeya1 or enter the book title Swept into the Darkness.  For the month of July I will also be participating in the Smashwords summer book promotion.  My book Swept into the Darkness: Chronicles of the Celestial Book one will be available for fifty percent off.  Download your copy today.  Stay tuned for coming updates.

I finally got my copy of Charline Harris’ DeadLocked.  I just started so I am very excited to see where the story will go.

Happy Reading and Writing
