About Atucim Sanumar:
Hello. I grew up with video games and anime when I was a kid. From early childhood I was dreaming up all kinds of stories in my head, but never thought about writing. With too much time on my hands at the beginning of 2020, I decided to sit down and write a short story just for fun. Chapter after chapter and the short story developed into a bigger one, then evolved into a full novel.
As of this writing, I have five books published.
What inspires you to write?
I would say my inspiration comes from the video games I played and fantasy movies/anime I watched. Lot's of them had really cool, impactful character stories and developments.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
I don't have any. I don't read other books when I write.
Tell us about your writing process.
I usually know the main things that would happen in the story but I don't plan, or outline, how I will write, or what I will put in my story.
I ask one question when I sit down to write – What would I like to happen next? And then go from there.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I try to imagine the conversation scene and what the characters are talking about. What are their responses, etc. I wouldn't say I 'talk' to my story characters. I become an observer of the situation.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing. That's one.
Second is to learn marketing. If you want people to read your books you need to learn how to market your books.
The second one I am still learning myself.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Self-publish from the start. I was too ignorant and didn't know how to approach a publisher, nor I expected a publisher to publish my books anyway.
For new authors, that depends. I see people going to publishers and people who publish themselves. Either way, you will need to put in work.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I don't know. People like reading books. It's a form of entertainment as well as learning new things. I think in the future more and more people will flood the market. That's why being original, unique and sticking to your craft will be important to win the long game.
What genres do you write?: Fantasy, Romance, Adventure
What formats are your books in?: eBook, Print, Both eBook and Print, Audiobook
