Interview With Winn Publications
Winn Publicaitons: How did your journey as an author begin?
My journey as an author began by reading a romance novel. There was an ad in the back asking you to submit a story if you were interested in becoming published. I submitted and they offered me a writing contract for 7 books.It took off from there!
Winn Publications: Was it something you always wanted to pursue?
I had written songs and poems ever since I was a little girl in middle school. I never dreamed that I would be writing novels and self-help books though.
Winn Publications: Who or what motivated you to write?
The stories I read, or better yet the stories I didn’t read. It seemed as if Black Women were always in these certain boxes when I read fiction and I wanted to write stories that burst us out of those boxes. I wanted to write about how we were strong, but not at the determinant of not being able to keep a man; that we weren’t the victim, but the victor; and that we always got the happily ever after without the drama.
Winn Publications: Have you published your writings into a book? If so, where can we find it/them?
Yes, I have and you can find my books on Amazon, Google Play, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and everywhere pretty much books are sold.
Winn Publications: How was the publishing process?
It was easy when I was with my publisher.
Winn Publications: Are you self-published?
I am and I love it. I would recommend it for any author who has the time and money to invest in their work.
Winn Publications: Since becoming a published author, what challenges have you faced if any?
Marketing, marketing, marketing. Gotta keep my name out there.
Winn Publications: Have you written anything outside of fiction/nonfiction?
Yes, I write songs as well.
Winn Publications: Do you have a tip that you can offer your peers (poets and writers worldwide)?
Don’t ever give up on yourself or dreams. You are worth the investment in yourself and your craft.
