A Candid Interview With Author Brittany Lewis




Tell us about who you are and where you’re from.
I’m a Marine wife and mother of two young children. We currently live in North Carolina, but my husband and I are both originally from Massachusetts.


 Did you always want to be an author and what inspired you?
 I’ve been writing since I was in Middle School. I wrote my first book, a collection of poetry entitled Shine Through the Darkness, when I was in 7th and 8th grade. I published that book last year. I have always had a difficult time talking about my feelings, and I express myself better through writing.


 Does writing energize or exhaust you?
Both. It depends on what I’m writing about. While I was writing Finding Freedom, the first novel in The Zion Series, writing usually exhausted me because I put so much emotion into that book.
Can you tell me a little about your writing process?
Sure! After I’ve thought of an idea for a novel I write out the general summary, usually only a paragraph. Then I expand it, making it three paragraphs. This gives me the summary of the entire plot, beginning, middle and end.
Since I write Young Adult, my books are usually between 40,000-60,000 words and normally have 20-25 chapters. I estimate that I want around 20 chapters in my book with each chapter being 2,000-3,000 words. After that, I break the chapter down into scenes. I only use a few words to summarize a scene and I do this in list format. This way if I know I’ll be somewhere where I’m waiting for something, I can jot down those few words on what the scene is about and write it while I’m out. I’ve actually written a lot of my work by texting it to myself while I’m out and then typing it later.
When I’ve gotten about half of my first draft done I send it out chapter by chapter to my first beta reader. She reads each chapter and makes corrections. After those corrections are made I send it to my editor. Then the third draft goes to another proofreader. I normally start writing another book the day after I finish my rough draft.


When do you write?
I’m a stay at home mom of two young kinds (seven and two) so right now I write whenever I have the time. I try to spend a total of 2-3 hours per week writing, sometimes more. Honestly, I spend the most of my time marketing.


Where do you write?
My desk is set up in the sitting area of our house, right next to the living room, so when I’m home I usually write there.


Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?
Right now I am building connections. I’m currently working on a YA series and a children’s series.

Does your family support your career as a writer?
Yes and I am very thankful for that. Many authors don’t have family support.

What is your latest book about and are you working on anything new?
I am currently writing the third book in The Zion Series, Reunited, and I am actively pitching my children’s series to agents and publishers. My children’s series was created to help teach self-help and daily living skills to children with special needs and to help promote Autism awareness and acceptance. You can keep up with new releases by following me on Facebook: www.facebook.com/BLewis2008 and on Twitter at www.twitter.com/BLewis2008

 Any advice for aspiring writers?
Learn to both accept and expect rejection. You will get a lot of rejections. Develop thick skin and keep going. Perseverance is the key to success.

Beyond The Nursery Rhymes: Real Life Tales by Elle McLin





Poetess/ writer Shantelle "Elle" McLin releases a book of poetry titled Beyond Nursery Rhymes: Real Life Tales.  

Synopsis
Between the covers of this book, you will find a pilgrimage. For the author, ‘Elle’ McLin, in describing her past as a painful one, would be trite and dismissive. It is through enormous turmoil that she found herself; slowly healing, then breaking free of victimhood. She later awakens to new found hope. A victim of sexual abuse; the reality of her writing conveys to the reader, that the true assault was the violation of her soul. The aftermath was a skewed self-perception, which created a pattern of self-deprecation and bitter angst. This is a glimpse into the heart of a woman who became terrified of love, yet desired to be loved; a dichotomy. So skillfully written, Elle has masterfully conveyed her deepest, blood-raw emotions in this exquisite collection of prose. It will be an emotional journey you take with her, feeling each inference, innuendo, and breath. It is a tale of inner strength, fortification and a woman reinvented. The author has discovered self-love; the key was never outside of herself. A victory for this very brave, strong woman. Walk this pilgrimage with ‘Elle'. You will find seeds enough to plant within yourself! Powerful and evocative - not to be missed. Brenda-Lee Ranta – Author of Myriad of Perceptions & Allegories

A whole new breed of entrepreneurs are making fortunes distributing and selling music all over the world - some are competing with the majors in a way that would have been unthinkable a few short years ago. In the eighties and earlier, putting a record company together would have taken months to set up - assuming you had the capital in the first place. To get started - you would have needed somewhere in the region of $300,000 dollars - for an average office, and salaries to pay for a secretary, a&r personnel, pluggers, promoters, copyright and royalty personnel - overheads to run the office, costs to manufacture, market and promote your product, would have swallowed most of your capital before you got started.

So, what's the big difference between then and now? In a sentence - the explosive power of digital has practically zeroed out overheads.

With a digital label, you simply keep or delete product quickly and frequently without the hassle of physical storage. What's more - you can feature new records every day, week or month with reviews, news and updates, and build a huge newsletter and list following - all to suit your business. Setting up a digital label is simplicity itself - but you will need to follow certain guidlines - if you want to be operating efficiently and quickly.
