About Lorine S. Thomas:
My name is Lorine S. Thomas and I penned “Cross Your Heart”. I am a new author trying to venture into the hectic and demanding world of publishing. I have been writing since I was younger but decided a few years ago to give writing an entire novel a try. It was challenging but very rewarding in the end. I currently reside in New York with my husband and am in the process of writing the next volume in what I hope to be a series.
What inspires you to write?
I have always been a writer and i guess it comes from having a very vivid and active imagination. I love coming up with different ideas and stories and bringing them to life on paper is very much my therapy.
Tell us about your writing process.
I do tend to outline as best as I can. Generally, the synopsis is the first thing i create as I helps me write the story better. Then I work on the character’s name and description. I may end up changing a few details but i basically stick to what i write.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes, I do listen and talk to my characters and they tend to talk to me. I find myself having full conversations with them. So, I do hear voices in my head and they talk to me.
What advice would you give other writers?
1. Be patient with your work, it will come together.
2. Not everyone is not going to like your work so take the bad reviews with a grain of salt.
3. Just write, it will flow.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self-publish due to the limited funds/connections that would have been necessary for traditional publishing. You have to find the best method that works best for you.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future is looking brighter than ever as I have met some amazing and talented writers in a few forums.
