No. Too many of my friend authors tried that route and it never turned out well OR was too time consuming of a wait to publish a book.
How long before you got your offer of representation/your first contract? Was it for your first novel?
My first contract was for an audio of my first novel, Dark Wish. Two agencies approached me, and I ended up going with the company that would give me an agent to get the best offer for me. It was an awesome experience and since then, I have two audiobooks. It was a good learning experience.
Are you currently under a traditional publishing contract for future books or do you have manuscripts that you will self-publish? Are you doing both?
All about Self pubslishing. It’s far more independent, and you have the freedom to do a lot more than traditional in my opinion. I write fast and love to get my books out there, the moment their done, so it’s nice to be able to do that.
What factors influenced your decision to self-publish your book(s)?
My friend motivated me to try it since I had a good story and wanted to have a career change that would make me more independent than relying on an employer or a “boss”. After being an author for a year and a bit now, its nice to really be able to do what I want to do.
What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
I have to listen to music for anything, so music is a MUST if I want to get anything done. Silence just bothers me and I can’t think properly without some type of sound or game in the background. Having coffee and wine is an added bonus mwahhaa.
Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
LEAD THE WAY MY CHARACTERS. I’m known as a pantser, an individual who simply writes without an outline.
Did you hire an editor to review your manuscript before publishing?
YES- I have two editors, a BETA team and an ARC team.
What advice would you give a new author just entering into the self-publishing arena?
Work hard for what you want to achieve and don’t compare yourself to other authors.
Besides writing, do you have any other passions?
I love video games! Can play them for hours and not get bored.
Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?
Coffee (is life)
Hmmm I love texting unless I’m having a conversation with close friends and have the time to talk.
I’m a Night Owl thanks to being a night nurse, but I’d personally love to switch my work hours to day

An Orphan Girl. A Group of Wolves. A Destined Fate for War.
Don’t you ever wish to find where you belong? A place where you can rest your head without worrying about being jumped or your possessions being taken from you? Not like I had much, to say the least.
A pendant, an ancient blade, and a picture of my murdered family were all I had left when I was five years old. Foster homes to homeless shelters, I never found a place of refuge. I simply didn’t belong, and everyone made it their duty to remind me of my predicament. Until I finally came across a place that felt like home.
Sacred Moon Shelter for Endangered Wolves. I’d stumbled upon the sanctuary when I was near death, but I was miraculously saved.
Since then, I’ve become a Wolf Tamer; the only one who can get close to touching the six rare breeds. When I’m with them, I feel safe and sometimes wish I could be like one of them and escape this cruel world.
But such inhumanity strikes home, a group of hunters shows up, ready to take my wolves to an unknown place or murder them in cold blood. I won’t allow them to kill the only true family I’d ever known.
My name is Harper Blake, and I vow to claim and protect my own.
Wolf Tamer is a new Wolf Shifter Reverse Harem Romance. Recommended for 18+ Audiences.
