Interviewing Best Selling Authors…looking back!

authors, writing, writers, interviewsThis is my one year anniversary of interviewing best selling authors and I’m amazed at the success of it!!  Authors have been so generous with their writing process and their time.  The interviews are on-going and currently we are booked through April, 2014.  It’s always a thrill for me when busy, well-known authors are so generous with their answers that I must break it up into ‘parts’.

The common threads from all the authors were:  discipline, consistency, and hard work.  That no process is right or wrong as long as you have one.  Never give up, keep writing.  Rewrite, rewrite, rewrite!  I’ve said it before and it bears repeating: ‘Writing is not for the faint of heart.  As Hemingway said, “Writing is easy.  You just sit at the typewriter and bleed…’  

Here is a list of authors who have shared with me…and you….past, present and the ones we have to look forward to: (Click on their names if you’d like to read the interview)
