Our guest today is the awesome Terri Wilson. Welcome, Terri!
CLR: I see that this box set is from a collection of different authors. What was it like working from so many different perspectives?
TW: It was motivating. They are all such a great group of ladies, I didn’t want to be the weak link. So it pushed me to make my story better. Every time I had a question or a need I got great response and help.
CLR: For me, attending reader/author conferences is one of the best perks of being an author. What is your favorite thing about conferences and/or signings?
TW: Synergy. It’s a phenomenal feeling to be around people who are like-minded. So far I’ve only attended as a reader, next summer I’ll attend my first as an author.
CLR: From the title of the box set, I’m thinking each story has a hero as the protagonist. In your experience, what does it take to create a really great hero?
TW: Honesty, sincerity, and relatability (a nice set of six-pack abs helps too.)
CLR: What’s next for you?
TW: At the end of this month, I release the first of a trilogy, Forgiveness for Mate It’s coming out in the Milly Taiden world, Sassy Ever After. Book two will be out in October. I have three more anthologies coming shortly after the first of the year.
CLR: You are the force behind a great video blog as well, can you tell us a little about that?
TW: Popup Interviews started because I love to meet people, but prefer to talk one on one. In groups, it’s hard to give people the attention they deserve. I interview authors, readers, industry professionals, and bloggers. We talk about books, writing, and anything else that comes up in my head. It’s not scripted so it’s very spontaneous. I took some time off this summer, but plan on hitting it again this fall. If you’re interested, fill out this Google form:
CLR: I know Tracie Roberts and I had a great time on your show. Thank you for joining us, Terri.
