About Bella Street:
Living so close to Nashville has provoked Bella to take up fiddle lessons. Until her tunes no longer sound like amorous alley cats, she writes weird romance (which includes Gothic romance, science fiction romance, apocalypse, time travel, paranormal, fantasy romance, New Adult–and possibly sasquatch).
What inspires you to write?
The voices in my head–but they settle down if I impart them to my computer
Tell us about your writing process.
I walk through basic character goals, their motivations, and what brings conflict. Beyond that, along with a character dossier, I write by the seat of my pants.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes. We banter. We argue. We break up. We make up. It’s very emotional.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never give up, and write more.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self-published back when it was the ‘death of one’s writing career.’ Now it’s cool. Does that make me a hipster? (No, skinny jeans are not for me).
I LOVE being able to write whatever the heck I want without yielding to house rules, and love it even more when a reader connects with my work.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It’s never been a better time to write. Publishing will become more niche, and there’s an audience for every voice.
