About Shaan Ranae:
I am fun loving wife and mother of two who found her love of Romance after reading a very popular Romance series. After that I was hooked. I loved disappearing into another world and reading the drama. I had a few stories concocted in my head and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
A nurse by day and romance lover by night. A mom and wife to the most amazing people in the world. I have many hats, but love every minute of it.
What inspires you to write?
I’m a romance junkie and a hopeless romantic. Honestly, I wait until something just pops in my head and I’ll write it down. A Minor Happy Ending took about 2 years to write , but I’m already half through the follow up story.
Tell us about your writing process.
AMHE- was a “oh hey that’s what happens next” kind of process, hence the 2 years it took to write, but I have outlines the next three I have in the works to keep me focused. I don’t follow it precisely, but try to stick to the idea.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes I do! Dyllan and I are very close. I’ve actually deleted
Paragraphs thinking, he wouldn’t do that.
What advice would you give other writers?
Find your own process and just keep going. The best advice I ever received was edit- edit – edit and I listened. Hopefully it shows.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
It just seemed right. Honestly, I did send a couple of submissions to traditional publishers. I did get a couple denials and I still haven’t heard back from a few, but my gut told me to just go for it. I listened.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Ebooks are the future. I’m guilty of buying Ebooks before buying a paperback. They are usually cheaper and easily accessible. There are so many options and vendors.
