Author Interview – Samantha Warren

How do you write – laptop, pen, paper, in bed, at a desk? I get my best writing done on my laptop, curled up in bed.

How much sleep do you need to be your best? Any less than 7 hours and I’m a total zombie. But if I sleep too much, then I go through the day in a fog where all I can really do is stare at the screen and be unproductive.

Is there anyone you’d like to acknowledge and thank for their support? Jennifer L. Oliver and Merry Farmer are both very close friends and crucial supporters in my writing career. They’ve kept me sane, and I like to think I’ve helped them do the same. Jennifer writes dark fantasy and Merry writes historical romance. Both are fantastic writers.

Every writer has their own idea of what a successful career in writing is, what does success in writing look like to you? I want to be able to live off my writing. I don’t mean I want to be rich, but I want to be able to pay all my essential bills with a little left over without worrying each month if I’m going to make ends meet. Though it would be really awesome to have one of my books made into a movie. I would consider that a huge success.

It is vital to get exposure and target the right readers for your writing, tell us about your marketing campaign? Most of my marketing is what I call “passive promotion”. Talking to people, getting to know them, chatting on Twitter, Facebook, etc. People are more willing to check out your books if they know that you’re a decent, fun person to begin with.

When you are not writing, how do you like to relax? All writers I know relax by reading. You can’t be a good writer without being an avid reader. Nothing is more relaxing than curling up in a comfy chair (or my prefered hangout – the hammock) and reading a really really really good book.

The Iron Locket

She was raised to hunt faeries. He was raised from the dead.

Arthur Pendragon spent centuries in blissful nothingness, until the day the four queens banded together to raise him from the dead. Along with his twelve most talented knights, he leads the warring armies of Faery against the greatest enemy they have ever known: one of their own.
