How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
I write in all genres. Haunted is a psychological suspense/thriller. I found writing it was quite an emotional journey, as it is very much a character study of someone with a dark secret, a lot of guilt, and remorse.
It is very dark, so only recommended for those who like dark fiction and thrillers. I’ve been told that this story stays in people’s minds long after they read it. Some readers have told me it gives them nightmares!
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
You must read a lot, reading is a great source of inspiration. And write as much as you can. When you’ve written something, get feedback from other writers. Get to know other writers and help them with editing their books because this will sharpen your editing skills. As a writer, you also need to be a good editor; especially if you’re a self-published writer.
Never publish anything until you’re 100% happy with it. Use an experienced editor if you’re not confident in your own editing skills, and always use at least 4 beta readers before publishing, more if possible.
