What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The hardest part writing my book and any book, is the plotting. You need to make sure the plot works and that by the end of the book, whether it is a mystery, horror, romance, or comedy, that it is all tied up with no loose ends. Loose ends leaves the reader wondering what the heck and I certainly don't want that to happen. That you write believable characters that the reader can relate to, good or bad, that the book left them liking what they read and will recommend the book to their reader friends.
What books have had the greatest influence on you?
The time travel books Journey to Yesterday and Return to Yesterday written by the late June Lund Shiplett, great romances by Kathleen Woodiwiss, Stephen King, Janet Evanich's Stephanie Plum series.
Briefly share with us what you do to market your book?
Not only advertise it on Bookbuzzr, but I have a blog at http://jacquehopkins.blogspot.com, I have it listed on any site I can find besides Amazon and Smashwords, talk about my book on my facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Author.JacquelineHopkins and have joined many different writing communities on facebook and get interviewed on other writer's blogs.
How do you spend your time when you are not writing?
Work. My job is a regular 8-5 with some overtime. Relax with husband watching movies or I do research for my books. I like history, looking at maps and learning about geography. I like to set my books in places I have been so that I know what I am talking about having been there. I also read; I was an avid reader first before I became a writer.
What are you working on next?
I always have several books going at once so that
if I get writer's block on one book, I can work on another one. I have a
romantic time travel, a serial killer, a murder mystery and a fictional
mainstream. The last three are set in
