For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I do. It is a big part of the writing process.
What advice would you give other writers?
I recently read Elisabeth Gilbert’s book: Big Magic – Creative living beyond fear. She describes in a very realistic way the challenges that young authors have to face nowadays.
I strongly believe that if your passion is writing, you should pursue it all the way up to the end while maintaining a pragmatic approach to the everyday life.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self-publish my book because I wanted to create an organic platform were children and parents can read and talk about the importance of generosity and kindness in our life. Self-publishing proved to be an easy way to get my message to the world in a time efficient manner.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I strongly believe that the alternative of self-publishing allows people to have their voices and writing heard in a much easier and faster way than the traditional publishing process. I love books and I think that the future of publishing relies in having the flexibility and the options as an author to get your message out there in various ways.
