|Today's Guest: Indie Author Poppet|
Authonomy is an on-line writing community. A few years back, I spent about 14 months or so reading and sharing new work with other aspiring authors. The 'goal' is to work one's way up the rankings and potentially get read by a Harper Collins editor while giving and receiving feedback on works-in-progress. Because of this incentive, some ultra-competitive members got downright bitchy. I eventually tired of the game, and withdrew despite the many good things about the site. I DID make friends with a number of wonderful writers while I was there. Today, I'm introducing one of them to my blog followers: Poppet!
Poppet is a wonderful, loyally supportive fellow Indie author-- and has unleashed some very steamy and action-packed stories to indulge in! Her positive, fun approach to the madness of the Indie world has been a welcome influence beyond our Authonomy days.
Q: Have you always been a writer? Tell us about the first thing you ever wrote.
A: The first 'novel' I wrote was when I was 14. It was a truly crap romance.I showed it to my mother (lol) and gave up that second-- and didn't go back to novel writing until many decades later. However, I used to keep journals of writing (which I've since thrown away).
Q: You've come a long way since our Authonomy days! What made you take the leap, and get your words 'out there' and widely available to readers?
Q: Putting stories out into the public eye is an act of faith. What have you learned most about yourself as a writer by sharing your creativity with the world? (The good, the bad, and the ugly!)
Q: I admire your self-disclipline and productivity. What is your process? Tell us about a typical day in the writing life of Poppet.
Q: What are your ultimate goals with your writing?
Q: The List! Share with us five things you cannot live without, and why. (Besides the obvious choices of food, shelter, oxygen etc.!)

Poppet's latest paranormal romance is Master of Umbra.-- part of The Valhalla Series.
|Those abs hold promise!!|
Deliah is in grave danger, running for her life from a man who needs her dead, when serendipity plants her in the path of the Master of Umbra. Inducted into the mysterious Eagle clan of the Scottish highlands, Deliah is torn between her fate and destiny when kin clash for her affections. Falling for the scandalous villain who heads the Berserkers of the Hebrides, her fragile hope is snuffed out early by revelation and impending war. The only mantra she can cling to is the one uttered in heartfelt promise; that love comes back. Because that's what love does.
