I have a fairly set schedule that works well for me. First, I strive to finish a novel within three months, which plays heavily into my scheduling. I wake up between 8:00am and 9:00am, and after a quick morning routine, I go straight to my desk to write. I'm usually there anywhere between 8:30am and 9:30am. I then work until I reach my word count goal, which is usually between 1,000 and 2,000 words a day. When I'm working on a new book, which is probably 90% of the year, I write every single day, but most days, I can get my word count goal in in about one to two hours. The rest of the day is spent on social media, editing, marketing, emailing, attending meetings, reading, or doing personal things for the homestead.
Videos by O. is my book trailer designer. Opal does amazing work, and I highly recommend her.
In 2015, I self-published Daemon Academy, my horror short story. In 2017, OfTomes Publishing picked it up! Because of this, it got a cover revamp and a name change. It's now titled Her.
I'm an underwriter. My first drafts are usually around 50,000 words, so when I go back through to do self-revisions, I take the time to flesh out scenes.
I originally self-published my Blood Books trilogy, but in 2016, I signed a three-book deal with OfTomes Publishing. Since OfTomes signed the trilogy, they gave the books a cover revamp. The original covers are considered first editions. If you find one, keep it safe! 
Honestly, the answer to this question will change based on who you ask, but since you asked me... Romance and erotic romance novels tell a story. You'd differentiate the two depending on the level of erotic elements included in the story. Does the sex scene fade to black? Then you're reading romance. Is the sex scene detailed? You're reading erotic romance. Of course, there is some wiggle room here. You'll see a bigger difference when comparing romance and erotic romance to erotica. Erotica is meant to arouse. Many argue that erotica is why terms like "smut" or "soft-core porn" were coined. Typically, there is no plot in addition to the erotic elements. Basically, if the book you're reading is one long sex scene, you're reading erotica; if the book you're reading is sprinkled (even liberally so) with sex scenes, but more than sex drives the plot forward, then you're reading romance or erotic romance.
No. My books are purely fiction. I make up every word. With that being said, some of the characters are based on people I've met. For example, from Break On Me, Tara Johnson, Jezebel Tate's best friend and literary agent, is based on my best friends. If I were to put my best friends into one being, that person would become Tara Johnson. Rarely do I do this, though. I prefer to create someone who's purely fiction.

My titling process is different for each book. The titles for my Blood Books trilogy refer to specific scenes within each book. In these scenes, something happens that forever changes Avah, the series heroine. Because of this moment, Avah begins a journey she never saw herself pursuing. To me, these scenes are the most important in the books. On the other hand, the titles for my Sins & Secrets series refer to an idea or theme, not necessarily a scene from each book.

I can only speak on what's worked for me. I received a Bachelor of Arts in English and certification in professional writing from the University of Wisconsin--Parkside, as well as a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine. Could I be a writer without those degrees? Sure. However, the invaluable training I received has made me a better writer. I learned things I wouldn't have learned by trial and error, which, without an education, would be the only way I'd learn how to write. With that being said, do you need a degree to be a writer? No. Would I recommend getting one? Yes.

Surprisingly, no. I didn't pursue writing until late-2009. Prior to that, I wanted to be a doctor and then a lawyer. 
I'd work with animals: marine biologist, felinologist, zoologist, veterinarian, etc.
Yes, I've always wanted to write psychological thrillers.
I prefer to read and write romance, and of my preferred sub-genres (contemporary/erotic, paranormal, and suspense), my favorite is contemporary.
Lauren Blakely and Meredith Wild are my one-click authors, but I also enjoy books by Sylvia Day, E.L. James, Audrey Carlan, Helen Hardt, Chloe Neill, and Richelle Mead.
I vaguely remember writing stories as a child, but I don't credit my writing's beginning until late-2009. I've written a detailed blog post about my path to becoming a writer here.
Definitely! Send me an email. Be sure to include the information you need from me and the date you need it by.
This depends on whether or not you want to self-publish or traditionally publish. Regardless, you need a great idea, a polished manuscript, an eye-catching cover, and a fantastic marketing plan. Simply hitting the "publish" button isn't enough. Writing the book is easy when compared to getting said book into the hands of readers.
First, take your writing seriously. Believe it's a career, not a hobby. While learning your unique style, be sure to read (a lot!) and write (a lot!). I recommend investing in books about writing. Don't just read within your genre. My final word of wisdom: BIC. Butt In Chair. To be a writer, you must write.
I do! You can find my NaNoWriMo profile here. You can find my Camp NaNoWriMo profile here. Feel free to add me as a writing buddy, too!
I'd love to see my work on the big (or small) screen! Unfortunately, an author has very little sway in the film or television industries. The best thing you can do at this point is to buy, read, and discuss the books; share them with your friends; and support their If List pages (if applicable). That is the best chance they have at being picked up by someone in the movie/television industries. Thank you so much for your support!
I am only accepting work via my editing company. If you are interested in hiring me for editing services, visit my editing website, and then send me an email.
Sorry, no. My own back-stock of ideas will keep me busy for years to come, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't write it!
Not at this time, but you can purchase paperbacks and attend a signing.
Absolutely! I love bloggers. Please complete this form.
I offer ARCs to members of my Facebook reader group. You can join the group here.
Yes! I have a Facebook group dedicated to discussions about books, swoon-worthy men and women, chocolate, wine, and naughtiness. Feel free to join the fun! I am also an admin of Book Addicts, a Facebook group that brings authors and readers together. You can join here.
This is based on reader appeal and publisher interest. I’m not opposed to the idea.
