About Vic Tyler:
When Vic Tyler isn't wrestling her doggo or reading and writing, she's destroying the kitchen with her crazy cravings, bundled in a cocoon of blankets, or vrooming and zooming off to see the world.
She loves to learn new things and talk to lots of people, so feel free to reach out and say hi!
What inspires you to write?
Stories and relationships. I love learning about people and how they're connected to others. All my work is about developing meaningful and gradual relationships.
Tell us about your writing process.
I scribble and jot down random things, write down diary entries for my characters and all their personality traits, outline, rework the outline a few times, research for hours on end, go back to outline some more.
I do everything on my laptop. I work best with a keyboard in front of me.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Hah! I should talk to them. I try to get in their heads. I'm a very invasive writer. 😀
What advice would you give other writers?
Just write. It doesn't matter what you write, as long as you're disciplining all your muscles to keep writing and imagining and creating. Writing doesn't have to result in a product. It can be the workout.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I'm self-publishing on Amazon. I kind of wanted to do something quick and dirty (with regard to the publication process) because I'm on a time crunch. I also didn't have a lot of confidence that I would be accepted by any publishing company, so I wanted to see if my work would gain any traction on its own.
For new authors, I'd suggest sharing your work with someone. Get them to read it and tell you what they think. Work on it, and if you're interested in self-publishing, research about it. If you're interested in traditional publishing, research that too. The internet is at your fingertips.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It's crazy accessible, which also means in a way it's overflooded. But hell, that makes it kinda exciting, don't you think? Fight against the current.
There's hardly any job nowadays where you don't interact with people, so especially with the boom in eBooks, there's a different sort of marketing and interacting there than is normally/traditionally expected.
I personally like it, but whether I'm actually any good at it is to be determined. Haha
