Indie Author Interview


AJ: Do you have any advice for other authors on how to successfully market their books?


MM: Marketing will take up more time than writing, and it's essential to being a successful author. Marketing begins as soon as you have a contract to publish your book and it doesn't stop. If you've never marketed anything before, do your research, learn to write press releases, contact every blog, podcast, newspaper, TV station, etc., and get your name out there before your book is published. When people know who you are, they are more likely to buy your product. It's why companies use celebrities to sell their products. Find reviewers, beta readers, and others who will help spread the word about your book. Marketing isn't about selling your book all of the time, it's about selling who you are.

Writer Wednesdays -- Interview


What is your favorite piece you?ve had published? Why?

I love everything I've written but Cross The Line is my all-time favorite. I think it?s so different from other books, and the characters leap off the page and live with you long after you?ve closed the book.

Book Club Reading -- Interview


BCR: Describe your style of writing.
MM: My style of writing? lol Well, I guess we could call it eclectic. I never sit down and try to write out an outline, or do a bubble-gram, or any of the things I was taught in school. I just seem to know the story in my head when I start and all I have to do is write it down. It?s a little different when I write non-fiction Bible self-help books, of course, but each one is its own unique story with individual characters, just like life.

Sunset Dreams & Coffee Cup Wishes -- Interview


SD: What inspired you to become a writer?

MM:I think I came out of the womb with a pen in my hand. I have always written stories and
poetry since the time I learned to make letters. I wrote my first book in the 8th grade. It was 
about a young lady who came from Boston to the wild, Wild West to teach school and falls in 
love with the town sheriff. Unfortunately, I don?t remember the title and no longer have 
the story, but I wish I did. I would love to see now what my 13-year old mind considered romance!
