1. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am a self-employed Creativity Consultant for Creative Technology Services, a company my husband and I started two years ago this November here in Elko, NV.  I have always loved writing, but I didn’t take my writing seriously or even think about it as a potential source of income until a client asked me to ghost blog for his website and was willing to pay me $20 a post.  Shortly after that we were looking for ways to increase our income and expand our client base and I listened to several webinars on creating ebooks to help you do just that.  After having been a three time Nanowrimo winner and managing to write two manuscripts simultaneously while keeping up with the ghost blogging, I felt ready to write my first published book, How to Write an eBook in 40 Days (or Less).

2. Describe your book ‘How To Write An eBook In 40 Days (Or Less)’ in 30 words or less. 

How to Write an eBook in 40 Days (or Less) is the newbie author’s guide to writing their first ebook.  It’s packed with the encouragement and advice I wish that I’d gotten when I wrote my first ebook.  The hardest part of writing this book was actually deciding what to put into it. It’s a big subject and there’s a lot of ground to cover.

3. What was the hardest part of writing your book?

4. What books have had the greatest influence on you?

There are 11 books that I would tell you have had the greatest influence on my life: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, Silver Boxes by Florence Littauer, Balcony People by Joyce Landorf Heatherly, The Bible, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren,  and Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary by St. Luis Grignon de Montfort and the Apostolate for Family Consecration. I actually blogged about this exact topic on my blog site, Everyday Catholic.

5. Briefly share with us what you do to market your book?

BookBuzzr is my main marketing arm for my book.  I absolutely love the pre-prepared tweets and the games. They are what made me sign up in the first place.  Aside from that, I use the kindle free promotion days when they are available and try to make the most of those. Each new download really helps expand my book’s potential audience.

6. How do you spend your time when you are not writing?

When I am not writing, I enjoy sewing, painting, drawing, video game playing, fabric design, and reading.

7. What are you working on next?

I just finished helping my writer’s group, Elko County Writers, put together an anthology called The Collected Works of the Elko County Writers.  I am almost finished helping a friend of mine, Dr. Joseph Lee Webster, D.R.H. to publish his manuscript Rescue My Marriage, Family, and Relationships (due out November 11th), and am in the process of writing a fiction novel entitled Project Cold Play.  It’s going to be my NanoWrimo project this year, and people can follow along as I write at
