Now you’re back with this awesome collection of poems called Empty Spaces. Our Editor and Chief tells us that you had your book launch party.  How was it?

Andrea Yvette: Fantastic! We had a great turn out! We also collected bottled water for the residents in Flint Michigan.

Quill’s Edge: Awesome! Giving back to the community and celebrating your new book. Win win for all involved!

Andrea Yvette: Thanks. I think that if you are blessed to have a platform, you need to use it wisely. Giving back is like breathing to me. Not only is it the right thing to do, sometimes it is the only thing we can do.

Quill’s Edge: Now Quill’s Edge has a vast readership that includes veteran authors and those currently on their journey to publication. So tell us, what constitutes good writing?

Andrea Yvette:  What constitutes good writing to me?  Material that immediately grabs my attention keeps it and leaves me satisfied.  I love material that is unique in content and character.

Quill’s Edge: Do you have a specific writing style?

 Andrea Yvette: I strive to be unique and non-stereotypical.  I strive for vivid expressions and a multi-faceted story line.

Quill’s Edge: What do you as an author and a poet find particularly challenging?

 Andrea Yvette:   I find it challenging to gain the support of The Black Woman.

Quill’s Edge: What gets you in the mood to write?

 Andrea Yvette: What gets me in the writing mood?   Every time I hear one of my readers say “I couldn’t put it down!”

Quill’s Edge: So what’s up next for you; any appearances or book tour info?

Andrea Yvette: On February 19, 2016 (yes, tonight!) I’m sharing the mike with some way talented folks over at the Battiste Lafleur Galleria.
