About Elle E. Kay:
Elle E. Kay lives on a farmette in the Back Mountain region of Pennsylvania. An introvert, she surrounds herself with farm animals rather than people most of the time. But once you break down her initial walls, she can be quite talkative.
What inspires you to write?
My inspiration comes from above. I just sit down and write and the words flow, as long as I remember to pray first. When I don’t ask God for direction, the words don’t flow as well.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am a seat of the pants writer. I start with very little in the way of a plan, but I do try to fill in character profiles as I write.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don’t talk to my characters, but I do understand them and their motivations.
What advice would you give other writers?
Don’t let other people get in your head. Some won’t like your writing. Even the very best authors have people who don’t like them. Reading is an individual experience and you cannot let one person’s opinion affect your perception of your abilities.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I published with JK Publishing, because it made the most sense for me. I think that self-publishing, traditional publishing, and hybrid publishing are all legitimate options. I went hybrid, but am not opposed to other options.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the traditional publishers will get more in tune with today’s self-publishing and hybrid presses. They need to either evolve or dissolve, and I think they will evolve.
