“My Writing Process” Blog Tour

Q. What am I working on?

I am currently working on 3 different novels. One is a science fiction book, the other two are contemporary romance. I also have the start of a paranormal romance. What can I say I love variety

Q. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

My books resemble much of the contemporay romance world. I do however try to keep the story line going through the series.

I want my readers to feel what these characters feel. Make them believable, as well as give them believable circumstances to find love, loss and the unfortante event which causes someone to need rescuing.

Q. Why do I write what I do?

I love writing. Who doesn't love a little romance in their life. I grew up reading science fiction and though it had nothing to do with romance, I grew to love the aspect that a spark could bring on such momentous feelings. Especially as I grew older and hit the hormonal stage. I want to give a little bit of that back.

Q. How does your writing process work?

My writing process is quiet unique, or at least to me it is. :)

I write what is in my head, piece it together, go back to the beginning and write some more. I don't stop for spelling or grammar, I just write. Every now and then a story hits me and I actually write down key words and phrases, even emotions in what I think each chapter should bring. Would you believe that I have 3, yes 3 notebooks filled with completed stories written just like this.

Q. Who will we meet next week?

Y. Correa- Author, CEO/Founder of @AllAuthorsMag & All Authors P & P, Mother, Daughter, Author Advocate, Avid Reader and Chocoholic.

Kerry Taylor- taken from her blog: I am a mother, entrepreneur, IT Engineer, poet and foremost a woman. I say this because, at times, we as mothers forget we are individuals too. We hide under motherhood to excuse and justify our movements in life.
I have 3 children aged from 17 to 1 years old, they keep my on my toes 24-7. They are the biggest aspect of my life. They keep me thinking of new adventures all the time, and sometimes they stop me taking some of them too. I am known to be rather wild at times. A special quote from my 17-year-old the other day – Whilst picking on his younger brother, I pointed out that they have all come from the same stomach. So, he should not act like he is the superior one. His reply – That is the problem Mother, we came from somewhere far worse than your stomach!!
Recently, self-published my first book of poetry called Stones of My Heart: One Woman’s Life Journey. It details all the different stages in my life from childhood, to teenager, to motherhood, to a wife and finally to a single mother. What makes it different from most? Everything, I am an average woman, fighting to survive in the world, and I have had too many kickbacks and keep trying to survive. That counts for a lot in my eyes and others.
The next book of poetry, I have written is called Life’s Pebbles: Her Journey Continues. It will be followed by Gravel of Moments: She Speaks Her Truths. Currently, writing my biography, my first novel which will enable my readers’ to piece all the puzzles together.
Also, I have started writing romantic comedies, the first one to be released is Fly, Pray, Love. It is a laugh out loud Cross Atlantic comedy about How Beyonce met Brad Pitt! Followed by Blind Dating, which is a heart-warming comedy about a woman who commences chat dating to discover the person she decides to meet is someone she already knows. I have just completedLove or Money, about two roommates, who set on a quest to get engaged, Kelly claims Money Can’t Buy me Love, whereas Heather begs to differ in this laugh out loud romantic comedy. She Said: He Said, a book which is a prime example of why Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus!

Carina Barton-  Best selling author of Never Forget.

Catrina Barton is a real go-getter, who in 2006 turned her avid reading addiction since three, into a vigorous passion for writing. Especially New Adult Romances. Drawing on her knowledge as a Kung-Fu Instructor she makes her fight scenes both realistic and action packed.
