About Lacey Wolfe:
Lacey Wolfe has always had a passion for words, whether it’s getting lost in a book or writing her own. Her goal as an author is to have a romance for everyone, whether it’s sweet, sensual, or spicy. She’s had several books on the Amazon best seller lists. When she isn’t writing, she can be found running, talking to her pets, spending time with her family, or lost in some sort of craft. She takes kindly to anyone who feeds her cookies.
Lacey lives in Georgia with her husband, son and daughter, their herd of cats, and one black lab who rules the house.
What inspires you to write?
I love creating stories. Since I was young, I always replayed things in my head over and over until I got the outcome I wanted. Such as, maybe a girl said something to me at school and later I didn’t like how I handled it. Of course, as I replayed it in my head, I won the argument. While my life is no where exciting anymore with drama filled middle school days, I now spend my days with fictional characters, helping them find love.
Tell us about your writing process.
I usually start a book by using good old fashioned paper and pen and jot out who the hero and heroine are as people. I keep this notebook with me, so when someone new comes along, I add them to the paper. That is the extent of my outline. I usually write the whole draft through without looking back, though that is something I really want to change so draft 2 isn’t so brutal.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen to them for sure. I don’t sit in my house and talk to them, but maybe in my head if they irritate me. I often find myself making the same expression as they are making in my books
What advice would you give other writers?
Take your time. This isn’t a sprint and there is no prize at the end if you put out 2 books a year or 20. Quality over quantity. Also, don’t be afraid of the small publishers. You can learn a lot about this craft if you find a good press.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I started with small press and still use a couple of good presses for my work. I do self-publish as well now that I’ve been around for awhile and found a team of editors. If I was going to start all over, I’d still start with small press.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
This is a good question. One I’m not sure how to answer. I’d like to see the market slow down. It’s a tough world for new authors to get into right now.
