About Neveah Hor:
In the year, 2050, among the humans on the streets, there were these very few others. Others who were made in the biggest technology company, AITA (artificial intelligence and technological advancements), what humans call, the guardians. They were crossbreeds of humans and animals which had the highest Intelligent Quotient (IQ). They were created to protect all citizens with their special abilities. However, they had one enemy. The citizens called them the poachers. They are from another company, The Royal AI. This company was the second most advanced company and they wanted all the glory of AITA. To win them over, The Royal AI had to prove themselves worthy and they resolved to hunting down the guardians to kill them all off by creating their own crossbreeds. Life for the guardians were not that easy. Humans just did not understand one thing. These guardians they so often talk about did not want fame. They wanted something else…
What inspires you to write?
Telling myself that my name will be on a book cover and will be on a shelf one day inspired me to write. The joy of seeing your novel on the bookshelf is overwhelming.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
My favourite authors are Gillian Perkins, Michelle Knudsen and Virginia Andrews. Gillian Perkins took the difficult route of self-publishing but managed to become an Amazon bestseller. She also runs a YouTube channel which inspires me. Michelle Knudsen is the author of the Evil Librarian Trilogy and I love that trilogy very much! I read Virginia Andrew’s book before—Family Storms. I read it a couple of times and never got bored of doing so.
Tell us about your writing process.
I have a writer’s notebook where I put in all the ideas I have for my novels. I also used free worksheets from blogs to plan how I want my novel to be. Once I have written the first few chapters and I feel like I know the storyline, I will keep writing and immerse myself in the wonderful world of writing. After I’m done with the novel, I edited over and over again. After I feel that the grammar and spelling errors are removed, I would get a beta reader for my novel and at the same time, format the novel. And finally publish.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen to my characters. I imagine I were them and then I imagine how they feel and decide what actions or speech they are going to do or say respectively.
What advice would you give other writers?
It is not as if I’m an established author, but I would like to say that you need to believe in yourself. If a story is in you, it needs to come out.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
At first, I was very determined to find a publisher to traditional publish. I thought it would be a better route for me because I’m not alone. I contacted most publishing houses, only to get rejection letters. And then I researched more about the two ways of publishing and finally decided that I should try self-publishing, a faster and easier way to publish.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of book publishing is going to be more difficult for self-published authors. With more aspiring authors using self-publishing, there will also be many more competitors. Getting a book deal for traditional publishing isn't easy too.
