Hello and welcome to another edition of Quill’s Edge! In our Author’s Spotlight today we have Self Published Author, Andrea Yvette.
She’s here to promote her fantastic mini novel, Lounge Time Stories.
Andrea Yvette is a self published Author who decided to make good use of a talent she has allowed to lay dormant for years. After being forced to quit her job due to her 10-year-old son’s Chronic Asthma, Andrea was determined to find a way to make a living and be there for her son without the fear of losing her job hanging over her. “At times, Employers expect you to choose between your job and your family. That is simply not an option for me!” says the Author, Wife, Mother of five and grandmother.
Stephanie: Thank you for joining us today Andrea. Let’s jump right in. What constitutes good writing for you?
Andrea: What constitutes good writing to me is interest, first and foremost. If a story, be it fiction or non-fiction, does not capture the reader’s attention then chances are it will go unread.
Stephanie: Tell us about your writing style.
Andrea: My writing style is equivalent to my reading style. I write short fiction stories that are designed to capture your attention immediately, keep it throughout the story and offer a fabulous ending leaving you wanting more. My mini novel “Lounge Time Stories” is just that.
Stephanie: So tell us more about your book, Lounge Time Stories
Andrea: Lounge Time Stories consists of three short stories that can be read in one to two hours tops. By the time you have finished the book, you are longing for another volume of stories.
Stephanie: What message do you want your readers to grasp upon completing your book?
Andrea: The only message I want my readers to grasp is that I have a vivid imagination that allows me to see various points of view from an incredibly diverse perspective. My imagination allows me to relate to any situation in life.
Stephanie: What do you find most challenging about writing?
Andrea: What I find most challenging about writing is maintaining a wholesome standard that allows me to appeal to Men as well as Women, Young ones as well as Mature ones. I want All to be able to find my work entertaining, respectful and worth their hard-earned dollar.
Stephanie: Too true. In this day and age finding something wholesome for people of all ages, both male and female is difficult to find. So tell us Andrea, do you have any special habits or rituals or traditions that help you get in the mood to write?
Andrea: No I do not follow any traditions or rituals to get me in the mood for writing but I do Pray that my writing does not bring reproach in any way on My Heavenly Father’s Good Name or on that of my Parents.
Stephanie: Describe your favorite writing environment.
Andrea: My favorite writing environment is any quiet space. It can be in or out-of-doors.
Stephanie: One of our traditions at Quill’s Edge is to ask a “fun question” at the end of an interview to give fans a bit of insight into their favorite authors. So tell us what type of music get you in the mood to write?
Andrea: I love all types of music so it can be anything from Southern Soul to Country playing on the stereo at any time.
Stephanie: Thanks Andrea for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit Quill’s Edge. We wish you every success in your writing career! Stop by anytime
