On this Thursday err-Friday. I bring you an interview with the author of Hope's Decree Angela McPherson
#1 How long did it take you to write Hope's Decree?
It took me three years to write Hope's Decree, and the version now is so different from back then. It is so amazing how much I've grown since then...thank goodness. LOL
#2 How long have you known you wanted to publish a book?
When I started writing Hope's Decree, three years ago, that was when I realized I wanted to be published. But not just to see my name on a book (it's an added bonus), but I wanted to give at least one person a world they could enjoy falling into.
#3 Are any of the characters in your book based on real people in your life?
No, not really, but my youngest daughter claims the book is about her. Her name is also Trinity, and she says the chick on the cover even looks like her (it's the blonde hair). Her brother and sister just roll their eyes at her now. I've created a monster. LOL. One of my best friends, Crystal, inspired that character, even down to the looks. Though her personality is more like Keri than Crystal. Okay, so I guess I should change my answer to yes.
#4 Who is your biggest inspiration?
Aside from the man upstairs, I'd say my kids, along with every single lover-er of YA paranormal romance.
#5 For you, what is the most difficult part of writing?
I have tons of ideas floating around in my head. Sorting those ideas out can be frustrating. I think the most difficult part though is getting everything down and not worrying over the order (writing out of order is hard for me). Until I get it just right, I can't move on. It drives me insane.
#6 Any advice for aspiring authors?
Never give up. Keep going. Use spell check. Have friends and anyone else you know read your work. Believe in yourself. NEVER GIVE UP!
And there you have it. Check out Angela's book now! I have yet to read it but it sounds amazing.
