Why Did You Choose to Selfpublish Instead of Taking The Traditional Route?
I enjoy all aspects of the publishing process, from getting the initial idea to formatting e-books to marketing. Self-publishing gives me the opportunity to do all of that and be in control of the process. Since I write erotica, traditional publishing opportunities are limited.
Did You Set Out To Become an Author as Your Main Profession?
I've always enjoyed writing, even as a child. My career path hasn't followed that of an author, but writing has been a crucial component of just about every job I've had (most of it in technical writing and documentation).
I would love to be a full-time author, but I'm not there yet. Some day, though!
Which Authors Have Inspired You The Most?
So many...my favorites are Charles Dickens, Georgette Heyer, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, William Gibson, J K Rowling, and Stephen King. That may sound like an odd collection for an erotica author, but I enjoy writing in a few different genres, and, especially, reading outside my chosen genre.
Tell Us About Your Book.
The Billionaire Stepbrother Hucow Alien Futa Shifter Monster Book combines my first love (science fiction) with my current genre, erotica. It takes a light-hearted look at many common erotica tropes, from billionaires and tentacle monsters to futanari and aliens. It was a lot of fun to write. It's also my longest work to date.
What Is Your Favorite Part of This Book, and Why Do You Think Readers Will Enjoy It?
I really enjoyed writing the futa character, Meera. I love her strength and compassion, as well as her interaction with the human characters. I hope my readers will like her, too!
Who Designed Your Cover Art?
I have a background in graphic design, so I typically design my own covers. This book cover is actually a bit different from my usual style, in keeping with the genre.
