About Soliel De Bella:
Soliel De Bella is a student of the Universe and enjoys Astrology in her spare time. Being a Scorpio, sexuality is a big part of her internal make-up, as well as anything considered taboo. She loves to entertain her creative side by writing Erotica and indulging in all aspects of sexual desire and fulfillment. Soliel invites you into her carnal world where you’ll strip off the masks you wear in society to fully expose yourself to the sensuality burning inside your soul.
Originally from the rugged “Big Sky Country” of Montana, Soliel now resides in Chicago with her family.
What inspires you to write?
The need and want to write for a living. I love being creative and who doesn’t want to make money doing what they love?. I feel accomplishment from finishing a book and putting all of my own unique, personal thoughts down for others to read and join me in my fantasy world. It’s satisfying when others appreciate that.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am not a huge planner, in the middle of a story I easily change things all around if I get an idea. I will take notes on my thoughts and ideas and go from there, my timeline will change a million times before committing to an idea, I have fun with it, If I don’t like something I can always go back and change it, that’s the beauty of writing. Nothing is in stone until I say it is.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I have a Soliel De Bella notebook that I put all of my ideas down on. The book I’m writing now will be my first timeline I am making because It’s complicated and I need to remember dates, times, characters. If it’s an Erotica genre I am much more a seat of the pants type of writer and change things around until I love it.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing and don’t think you are not good enough. If you give up, you give up on yourself. I get irritated with the whiners of the world who are on social medias complaining they are stuck and wanting to self loath and need that push from everyone. They just wasted half their day trying to feel better about NOT writing… stay focused, sit down and commit to it. I promise once you actually finish a book, its addicting. When a publisher comes along and recognizes you, your amped up, it’s such a great feeling and it happens even after the millionth time you put it out there to be rejected. Someone, somewhere will connect with your creativity, if you believe in your work, they will too.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I thought, why not? what is the worst that can happen?, they reject me?. I put my books out one year and I was told they loved the story but the editing was a problem. I am a creative thinker not an editor, I went to school for Sign Language, not writing class. Just life. I’m either accepted or denied. I was incredibly appreciative to find Terry and Bobette Wright of TWB press who had enough patience to work with me and help me in that weak area. I hope to learn quick and stop aggravating them with my poor grammar :}.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think it’s developing rapidly, anyone can do anything these days online. If you are good at editing, you don’t need a publisher. For me it’s nice to have them on my side. I personally feel like I am taken more seriously but perhaps that is just my insecurity of editing. I see people writing for a living, making great money without a publisher. The future is unknown, all there is, is now. There are a lot of Indie writers now and that’s really neat to have that available, at the same time the competition is overwhelming.
