Interview with Tiffany Current, MY MAKER'S KEEPER


Do you have a favorite character?
I do. It ‘s Lucas. He’s a sexy and dangerous vampire with a chip on his shoulder. Basically, he’s my ideal fantasy man. So it was a lot of fun to imagine what he’d be like.

Did you try the traditional route to publishing, i.e. querying agents/publishers?
I went the traditional publishing route with my first book, How to Move in with Your Boyfriend (and Not Break Up with Him). I had a good experience with my publisher, but for this book I wanted a little more control. And I wanted it to be published faster, so I decided to go the self-publishing route.

If you used a graphic designer/publisher’s designer, how involved were you during the creative process for your cover?
I hired a graphic designer for my cover. I wish I could create it myself, but that’s just not my wheelhouse. Basically, I gave him a general idea of what I wanted the cover to look like and the mood I was hoping to create. It only took him a few go rounds to get my vision right.

Do you belong to a critique group? Have they helped improve your writing?
I don’t belong to a critique group, but I do have a trusty collection of beta readers. They’re really helpful in getting my books to a good place – story and structure-wise.

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
I always listen to music when I write. The genre of music varies on the type of story I’m writing and on what scene I’m working on.

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
I absolutely outline my books before starting them. I used to go the non-outline route when I first started out writing, but that got me into a lot of trouble. I’d find myself in the middle of a story realizing that I had to go back and re-plot the beginning. So now I always outline all of my stories.

Did you hire an editor to review your manuscript before publishing?
I did. I hired a lovely editor, Lisa A. Hollett, who did a fantastic job editing my book.

Do you find it difficult to juggle your time between marketing your current book and writing your next book?
Yes, I do. It’s really hard to do both at the same time, so right now I’m just focusing on marketing My Maker’s Keeper. After it releases, I’ll probably slow down on the marketing and pick up writing again.

Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?
I prefer cats. Please no hate mail. And definitely I have to go with chocolate. Usually I’m a hardcore coffee drinker, but lately I’ve found myself turning to tea. And for sure, I’m a night person!

What’s next for you?
I’m working on an urban fantasy novelette right now. It’s about this cynical and sarcastic woman who doesn’t believe in the supernatural – only to discover she is supernatural and has to team up with a hot guy to rid the world of monsters.

Hannah Clark used to be an ordinary girl. She used to be a lot of things. Until she was bitten.

Five months ago, Hannah woke up in the middle of the woods as a vampire. She didn’t know how it happened or who turned her. She just knew she wasn’t safe in her hometown anymore.

Fort Wayne was supposed to be her fresh start. Her chance to finish high school without any other incidents. But then she met Jackson. Their attraction was instant and awakened something deep inside of her. Her thirst for blood.

Things only got worse when her maker, Lucas, came to town. He might have been sexy, but he was one dangerous vampire. And if Hannah wanted to keep Jackson safe, she had to protect him from Lucas’ ravenous ways. Even though she found herself excited by them.

But Lucas wasn’t there for her. Something sinister was happening in town. Vampires were going missing, and if Hannah didn’t want to be next, she had to work with Lucas to solve the mystery. But could she trust him? Or should she trust Jackson? She had to make a choice—and her life might just depend on it.
