Deciding on which eBooks site to use was so hard.
There are so many to choose from, but I managed to narrow it down to 3 for where I want to distribute my future works.
I am still working on my bio at the moment, but I did have my first interview recently with Smashwords.
And I decided to share it with ya’ll here.
Be sure to check out my page in December for more info (and for the release of my first book)!
Interview with K. McCoy
My writing hasn’t been influenced by where I grew up – at least I don’t think it has.
Not quite sure of the year, but when I wrote my first short story and I said to myself, “Hey – I may be good enough to call myself an author someday!” was in 2014.
The first official short story that I had ever written was back in middle school.
It was for a homework assignment – something about a little girl wanting a sleigh for Christmas and her family not being able to afford one. Then on a dark and stormy night (I know how cliche that sounds, but that’s how it happened in my story!) a stranger came to their home in need of help and the family offers him shelter for the night. The next morning he leaves and as a token of thanks he gives them a red shiny sleigh.
Writing has always been a creative outlet for me, and over the years I have wanted to connect with others through my work.
So once I accepted that truth (and faced the fears that came along with that) I started my journey to becoming an indie author.
I have at least half a dozen story concepts and not quite finished poems saved on my phone at any give time because of my randomness.
Sometimes I get stuck on a story and have to go to one of my think tanks – the beach, the park, or my favorite local brewery and just sit with whatever I have written so far until inspiration finds me.
Most of the time I start writing when my mind is struck with an idea, or a thought refuses to leave my head.
And I swear – most of my best work comes to me when I’m walking somewhere or on the city bus heading home.
It is all at random, but I love my writing process!
It’s a story about a girl trying to pursue her dreams without completely losing herself in the process.
And I am so excited about sharing this story!
My closest friends are all excellent cooks, so if I’m visiting them I know that a good meal is coming my way (and a game or two of ‘Cards Against Humanity’ too – LOL)
