About Allen Stanfill:
I live in Wyoming with my fiancee Jerry and our two kids Justin and Kylee. When I have the time I enjoy fishing and hiking, and in the winter I usually stay inside and read a good book.
What inspires you to write?
I’ve always wanted to write, when I was growing up I would write short stories all the time. What can I say, I have a big imagination and what better way to express that than to write.
Tell us about your writing process.
When I have an idea for a book or a certain character. I will start writing right then and there, and if I don’t have my laptop I will pull out my cellphone and record what I want to write. There’s a lot of times where I will carry a notebook with me and use that if need be. That’s the writing process that works for me.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I talk to my characters. I will tell them what they are going to do, how they will grow into what I want them to become. Just can’t help myself.
What advice would you give other writers?
My advice to other writers is no matter what anyone else says, or how they criticize your writing style, just keep with it. You have your own style and that’s not a bad thing, remember you’re only human.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Well since I’m a first time author I went with self publishing my book to get my name out there. Yes you have to pay for the services and it can be a pain, but sometimes you do whatever it takes. Just a quick word of advice if you do pay for publishing make sure you check out that company thoroughly.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think book publishing will still be going strong in the years to come. Yes they say the ebook format will take over before long. But lets face it, there will always be readers that want a signed book in their hands that will never change.
What genres do you write?: Horror, and Fantasy for the moment.
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
