Tell me more about your romantic suspense novel Last Words

Last Words is a book full of gut-wrenching emotions from the point of view of Amber Milestone. In love and life, she goes through drama, happiness and betrayal for a novel that will leave you turning the pages. Of course, there is a hot man Amber can’t resist. Jack Hale is rich, handsome, and he will keep the reader interested in his every move while plot twists will keep it interesting.

What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?

It was the first book I published myself on Amazon. The most challenging aspect of writing it was to find my style and voice as Amber in the most clear and exciting way.  I have learned a lot through the years about the craft of creating stories. The Amber Milestone Series is a slow burn romance on the steamy side of the genre. The reader is meant to read book one and continue to book two where her journey to happily ever after continues with a new location, mobsters and more!

What is your normal procedure to get your books published?

I publish them on Amazon. I use editors to guide me along the way and have designers create my cover for me and do formatting if necessary. Since I am doing it myself, I pay for all of it. No contracts with publishing houses, not yet anyway, but that allows me to have total control over the creative process.

What motivated you to become an author?

I’ve always loved to write. It is the plot and what it takes to polish it until it shines that intrigues me the most.

How many books have you written so far?

Last Words: Book One in the Amber Milestone Series

City in the Middle: Book Two in the Amber Milestone Series

Under my pen name Karen Kasey, I write young adult, paranormal. The Evil Within: Book One in the Witches of Blackstone is my book.

As an author, do you prefer the traditional book or online version? Why?

I read both. Kindle is great for traveling and having a variety of books to read. I do own a few paperbacks of books I love.

How hard or easy is it to establish and maintain a career in writing?

I’m writing part time and haven’t been able to live off the craft so I can’t speak to maintaining a career. However, I can say being a full-time author probably means producing multiple books a year and possibly doing seminars to bring in enough income to only be an author without a side job.

What is your advice for aspiring writers?

Write often. Read about writing. Read in the genre you want to write. Join writers’ groups for feedback and writers’ groups online too.
