IndieView with Michael Prescott, author of A Straw in the Wind

I was unaccustomed to writing in longhand, and was still very mentally befogged and physically jittery, being a mere few days’ sober at the time I commenced to write it – and the emotional factor: knowing that I was writing, in very graphic and horrific detail, about something which had happened to such a close friend of mine about twenty-three years ago, more or less exactly as it had taken place, was rather uncomfortable.

IndieView with Bobbie Jean Ashley, author of Charli’s Fall

I don’t outline, even though I do think that I should sometimes. I think its because I get so involved in my characters that I know exactly where and when they are going.

IndieView with Arthur M. Doweyko, author of As Wings Unfurl

As-Wings-Unfurl-800 Cover reveal and Promotional

I wait for an idea for a story to pop. I imagine a potential plot arc. I begin writing once I picture a great opening scene. Then I rely on intuition to get through to the end, which I hope will surface along the way.

IndieView with Victor Catano, author of Tail and Trouble

Tail and Trouble HiRes

My favorite times writing are when I’m in Orlando. My wife works at Universal Studios for part of the year, and I get into a rhythm when I’m down there with her. I drop her off at work, then I go to the nearby Einstein Bagels and abuse their bottomless cup of coffee while I write a chapter or two. Then I go back to Universal and ride the Hulk coaster and hopefully rattle some new ideas loose.

It feels like I’ve been writing Rarity from the Hollow all my life. I’m sixty-five, so that’s a long time.

Indieview with Nicole DelaCroix, author of Sexual Confessional

Sexual Confessional Confidential Admissions From Social Media

5. I subscribe to a theory of radical honesty, meaning that I do everything in my power to not tell a lie. I do however, refuse to tell anyone my correct age, and I never will.

Even with my sparse outline, the story always ends up with a different outcome than I had planned.

Reviewer IndieView with Liz Ellyn

While it is fun when a book sucks you into the story in the first page, I don’t ever define my opinion based on such criteria. I realize that sometimes it isn’t until the second half of the book that I fall in love with a story.

IndieView with Brady Koch, author of Guns, Gods & Robots

I like my stories to go unexpected places and I need readers to be willing to go with me. I promise that any left turn will not be simply for the sake of a shock or surprise, but will wholly serve the story and perhaps give the reader a reason to re-read from a wholly different context.
