My name is SKN Hammerstone and I am a YA horror author.
I write everything creepy and disturbing on a YA level. This means demons, angels, and mind tricks.
I am always more than willing to talk to my readers and potential writers so contact me whenever you want to.
I am a fairly young author and am still learning about the literary world and publishing as well as my own writing.
The only thing I can guarantee is that my books will always have a scare factor.
What inspires you to write?
Anything and everything. Music, other books, people around me, movies, tv, news. It doesn’t matter as long as it tells a story
Tell us about your writing process.
I usually start by writing a summary. I then research before writing a detailed outline, almost like a script. Then I flesh it out and turn it into an actual book before edit after edit.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don’t necessarily listen to or talk to them. More I watch them. I watch them live and learn and grow and I use pieces of them to create the glimpse seen in my books.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never give up on your writing
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Self published the first few. I am working on finding a traditional publisher for the next few. I just wanted to get my work out there so how it happened wasn’t really a big part of my process.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think that there will always be traditional and self publishers. Unfortunately I believe there will come a day when there are no longer print books but only ebooks and that will be a sad day.
