Today we have Terrance Foxxe. 🙂 If you recall, he did a series of posts about his adventures in publishing. Be sure to check those out here. But first, the interview he did with me.
Tell us about your most recent publication.
I thought this novel would work out well if I could find the perfect vehicle to drive my character’s interactions. Would a mental ward patient do?”
In The Dreaming offers a wide variety of stories to suit any tastes. From Native American legend to urban detective. Science fiction, magic and love, alongside vampires, barbarians, presidents, elves, and (walking talking) toys. Horror with the hope.
Give us a brief description of a story you have hidden in your skeleton closet? And will it ever see the light of day?
Nothing will remain hidden with me. It will all come out . . . in the end. My mind has a case of the mental squirts. The trouble with that is too many ideas, and I can’t type fast enough. Seriously, I will never suffer brain farts when it comes to writing.
How much of you/your life do you put into your stories?
Heart and soul goes into each novel and story. I have fun.
Which of your characters do you relate to most?
All my characters are real to me, and I am simply their scribe.
For you, what’s the hardest part of the writing process?
The time involved. From the start on through final publication, I want my readers to enjoy a great book. I try to be the consummate professional. 150% effort for 99.8% perfection.
For you, what’s the easiest part of the writing process?
There is no easy part. Some days are simply easier than other days.
With hindsight being 20/20, is there anything you would have changed with your publishing journey?
I’ll let this question slide.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Like it or not, this is a business. 150% effort for 99.8% perfection.
Anything special you’d like to say to readers?
What are you working on now?
I’m in editing mode for the next six months. I need to get my backlog up and running.
When did you first decide you wanted to be a writer?
A long time ago.
Why did you decide to publish independently?
Because I can.
Where do you get inspirations for your stories?
They come to me in a flash. No kidding. Sometimes from start to finish, and other times an idea will just keep me on edge.
I do it all myself, and it relates to the contents. I’d like to think I got a cool retro thing going.
What is your character development process?
My characters are who they are. They act and speak as themselves.
What’s your favorite writing tool and why?
Computer. I can save my changes to three flash drives. I don’t lose words.
How about some quickies!
