Why Did You Choose to Selfpublish Instead of Taking The Traditional Route?
As a published author for over two decades, I decided to try my hand at self publishing. This has been a very enlightening process, and one that I would promote to anyone just beginning their journey of being an author.
Did You Set Out To Become an Author as Your Main Profession?
I have always written and published on Amazon Kindle, Createspace for my print books, and Audible for the audio books to go with them.
Tell Us About Something You've Written:
The series: The Secret Life of A New York City Girl, is about a young woman who has it all, money, looks, culture, a life of leisure, but still can't get enough of sex, power, clothes, or entertainment!
She's a daughter of one of the country's richest billionaires, and from old money. However, she was raised in a very non-traditional home, where sex and erotica were not something to be suppressed or hidden, but something to grow up for so you could enjoy it the rest of your life.
Being exposed to it, experimenting with each new idea she got, learning who she was, how she felt, and why she acted as she did, she learned about her likes and dislikes, and how to get exactly what she desires.
There are sexy shopping trips full of new clothes, sexy play at tea time, money and high finance advisers, and powerful emotions attached all the way.
What Is Your Favorite Part of This Book, and Why Do You Think Readers Will Enjoy It?
I write my characters with a very sensual and passionate tone, yet in often a quite humorous way. I write about everything from first time erotic experiences to masterful quests for passion.
It is erotica with a plot. There is a story with realistic and memorable characters, who come alive in the chapters of the books, then develop together further in each of the following books of the series. They are fictional people, and created from my imagination, but the books are about ordinary people who could be right next door.
My books are perfect for anyone who is not looking for strictly pornographic content, but rather real life sex, based on real life feelings.
My books are very easy to read. Anyone can enjoy a short Chapter each night out loud with someone, or by themselves. You can read about new sexual experiences, written in a language of love.
If you come to Annelise-Paige.com you can find my daily columns about writing Romance and Erotica, and excerpts of my work. I've also added notes and comments on the days I was writing each series, and give little hints to what will happen next.
Where Do You See Self-Publishing Going In The Future?
I love books that are self published and written by an author who took the opportunity when given it. I do, however, feel that it has been taken advantage of over the last few years, as I know that there are so many books out there that are outsourced to someone else.
I am afraid that self publishing may begin to deteriorate due to the lack of any checks and balances on authorship, as the quality of the books have suffered from it.
Who Designed Your Cover Art?
I write my own books, and I do my own cover art. I hired my website out to a pro web developer, who branded it to match my work.
