Do you have any advice for new authors?
Save your money because the writing world has many people & company out there wanting to get as much money as possible. I did not want to have any errors in my first book of the series, hired 5 different editors, some book editing companies, one after the other each edited the book, each did not know who or even if it was edited before. Each said, it finished " Ready to Publish!" My next paid, review came back worse than I would have imagine-not recommending purchase or read? when each of the five reviewed the review they used their own words to say it was my fault? Because I did not pick the right editing? It needed structural editing first!, Once again off to two more professional editing companies and so, now after 7 professional editing its was ready to be published! and it's Published!
What has inspired you and your writing style?
