Guest: Nia Simone

After two weeks off (one week thanks to a nut case in chicago) we are back. This week we have Nia Simone on the show to chat about being an author, blogger and someone who love skiing!

Some questions we asked:

  • What is your publishing experience?

  • How does your own writing tie together with editing John’s work?

  • Why do you write Romance?

  • What are you working on now?

  • What are some of the things you’ve learned in your first couple years of being published?

Somewhere Far from Iris is a drama about a depressed man who goes back to his hometown to sort himself out and has to confront an explosive situation that is related to the mystery of his heritage. http://amzn.to/1oKLtHG

And if you are a serious writer, here is a tip if you are prone to  scribbling in the car, in traffic, on a note pad, because there isn’t a RULE against actual WRITING in the car, just texting.  Anyway, if you are trying to scrawl down that great idea for your NaNoWriMo novel, use a big, legal sized note pad.  That way you can write all over it, and something will be captured. Plus it may prevent you from writing on your slacks.
