Interview with Tijan
Word From Tijan
I didn’t start writing till later in life. I hope I’m doing it right, and if not, I’ll continue to keep trying! Nothing special about me. I’ve got an English Cocker that I absolutely adore, a man I couldn’t be without, and this insatiable need to keep writing the words, all the words!
What would be the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
Buy a house! 🙂 ! We want to get one with a fenced in backyard for Bailey to run around in, so no more waiting then.
If you were a superhero, What would your name be and what superpower would you have?
Lol on the name! I have no clue, but I’d want to fly. That’d be freaking fantastic. I’d probably pick a very boring name like Fly Girl or something.
What would I find in your refridgerator right now?
Actually, lots of healthy stuff. We’ve doing a lot better with keeping it stocked with a bunch of organic items too.
If you could go to the past or future, Where would you stay and why?
I’d probably go to the future, just to see what it’s like. As for where I’d stay and why–I’d have to just see where I liked it best. lol
Can you describe your ideal romantic date?
Nice dinner, then maybe a movie and wine at home! Just some great quality time with Jason, that’s my ideal date.
What’s the most money you’ve ever drunkenly spent on a takeaway?
Don’t hate me, but I rarely drink so nothing right now. Lol!
Characters often find themselves in a situation they aren’t sure they can get themselves out of. When was the last time you found yourself in a situation that was hard to get out of and what did you do?
I might have to come back to this question…I’m not remembering a situation right off hand. 🙂
Are you able to tell us what you are currently working on?
Yep! I’m working on Logan’s book (in the edits and rewriting stage) and also Davina. Davina is the last book in the Davy Harwood series. Both are coming out early 2016!
Are you able to tell us when the next Fallen Crest book will be out and how many books will end up being in this series? (This is one of my favourite book series ever by the way!!)
7 in series total and I’m not sure! I won’t make any announcement until I actually have the next two books done, though
Which of your books did you enjoy writing the most and why?
Maybe Fallen Crest High! Although, I really loved writing Kian because it was really just for me and no one else.
What is your least favourite part of the writing/publishing process?
Oh gosh. The editing/rewriting stage is hard, but so is the promotion and marketing. The actual writing part is always the best, though. Always.
Is anything in your books based on real life experiences or is your writing all imagination?
All from my imagination. I’ve tried writing a real-life book and it’s too hard. It’s just too close. I really struggle with that.
What does your writing process look like?
Sitting down and just writing. I don’t really have a process, whatever works with getting the words written!
How do you feel about ebooks vs print books?
I don’t really have a certain feeling about either. I love both!
How on earth do you write an effective synopsis?
No clue. Can you tell me?!
Do you have any writing rituals or any strange writing habits?
Nope. Well…sometimes I have to have something in my lap when I write. That’s the strangest thing I think of, otherwise I need music, headphones, and a beverage. That’s it!
Do you read your reviews? What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?
I don’t. I know I should, but reading reviews gets in my head. Everyone can feel how they want about my books, but I do the best I can and once that’s done, that’s all I can do. I can’t write for other people or I’d never get a book done.
Is there a certain type of scene that is harder for you to write about than others? Love, action, revenge, erotica?
I love writing angst, murder, revenge, that sort of stuff the best. I love doing the build-up.
What is the hardest thing about writing?
The pressure! And the negative opinions.
What advice would you give to future writers?
Write for yourself. Don’t have any expectation of getting big as an author. I say that because if it happens, then it’s an amazing feeling, but if it doesn’t–you can still write. Find an author group on facebook where you can ask questions for wherever you are in your writing journey.
