Questions for Aspiring Authors

I’ve read a few blogs where aspiring authors have asked these questions, and I find myself super curious as well…

Was it hard for you to write your first novel?

What word count do you think is best for a well-rounded novel?

Are you published?

Self-published or traditional?

Do you have an agent?

What genre (sub-genre) is your book(s)?

 

I wonder these things because I feel as though I’m stumbling blind in my attempt to write my book.

So here are my answers.

Was it hard for you to write your first novel?

It wasn’t hard for me to write my first novel, but now that it’s finished I’m second guessing myself with it–probably has to do with the fact I need more imput from Beta Readers and have had a hard time finding some.

What word count do you think is best for a well-rounded novel?

Honestly, I really don’t know. I do know that a lot of traditional publisher I looked at want 80,000 to 100,000 words.

Are you published?

No, currently I am not published but I plan to self publish early May if everything falls into place.

Do you have an agent?

No, I do not have an agent and honestly have no idea how to get one. lol.

What genre (sub-genre) is your book(s)?

The current book I’ve worked on is the first installment of a series, (The Genesis Project series) Prophecy of the Seven, which is a YA 18+ Contemporary Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, with a hint of Magical Realism.

 

 

I would very much love to have a discussion and I would love to hear about you and your book(s).

Calling all Beta Readers!

Hello all!
I’m looking and hoping I can snag a few people who love a good Contemporary Fantasy with some paranormal romance involved and a dash of magical realism to Beta read for me. I have had two Betas drop out of the running due to circumstances which I totally understand and support but I would really love to get that extra insight and make changes to whatever I need to.

There is a book description on my blog and I can answer any other questions at any time.

If you’re interested please message me on my facebook page or through WordPress if you so choose.

Thanks!
C.L.D.
