Welcome to Lovetiggi’s Book Reviews!!
Day 4 of The Claudy Conn’s Legend Series Blog Tour and Giveaway!
These books are 18+ Reads Only!
Today I have the Lovely and Warm Soul ~ Claudy Conn on the Blog!! WELCOME Claudy I am super excited about having you here today too! Claudy has been writing for 20 years and I absolutely LOVE her stories.. Before we get to the interview I want to introduce you to Claudy Conn.
I am so happy you stopped by. Some of you may know me as Claudette Williams/Melanie Davis, two names I used when I was writing regency and historical romances. I discovered that paranormal opens up a new world of possibilities.
Created my Legend series. The first, Spellbound-Legend is now being offered for free as an introduction to the series. In it you will meet Maxine. She has suddenly had a magical world thrust onto her when she discovered what she really was and who the Fae really are.
Aaibhe-Shee Queen is a novella I wrote in response to mail I received from so many readers wanting to know more about my Legend Fae Queen, and it too is FREE. I do so hope you enjoy both.
I am an Indie author now, but have an amazing editor who keeps me in line, and a professional artist who works my book covers. Kudos to both.
In the meantime, some of my historical romance fans have asked for more in that genre and I have been hard at work rewriting and updating my regency romances and making them more realistic and spicy.
Vampires whispered to me and Shadowlove-Stalkers was born as the first in three, each stand alone.
What do I do when I’m not writing? I love the outdoors and my Bob and I are always hiking, swimming, traveling, playing with our wolf and her son and the horses. My daughter and her great husband live nearby and so am very lucky to be able to spend wonderful times with them.
Originally from New York, we now reside in North Carolina. Want to know more and read my 5 star reviews and excerpts? visit me at http://www.claudyconn.com
I can also be found quite a bit at my author page on FB./
I do hope you come on over to my Facebook page as I am there quite a bit and have so much fun with fellow authors(whom you may know and love) and readers.
Now for the Interview!
1. When did you start writing?
It seems I have been writing ever since I could read. I started publishing way back in late 70’s with CBS/Fawcett.
2. What inspired you to do it?
Everything I see and do inspires me. A story is there at the next table at a restaurant. Is he her lover? Is he a spy? And off I go into never never land.
3. What projects have you done?
I have written and published over 60 books. When I started it was all historical and regency. Now it is basically paranormal/fantasy.
4. Any new projects coming up?
Through Time-Pursuit where a hunk from my Legend series, takes on a star role to capture and destroy the Dark Prince, Pestale.
5. Are you an independent artist or are you represented by an agency?
At this stage, I am independent and loving it, although I have an editor who wags a finger and keeps me in line.
6. Any favorite bands?
Do you use music to inspire you as you write? Often, a song will come on and bam, I get an idea. I love so many kinds of music, from Bruce Springsteen to Toby Keith. Love rock n’roll, love Taylor Swift, Reba, Adele…if it is good, I love it. Music is so important for the soul.
7. What advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?
Don’t give up. Find a good critique partner who can help you and I think, honestly believe, you must have a professional editor to set your work apart. Even with a good editor/copy editor, so many mistakes get through when it goes to formatting, but at least your content will be checked and double-checked.
8. Anything you would like to share with readers on a personal note that would allow them to get to know you better?
Oh, you mean like…I am nuts about chocolate, animals, hiking, pizza and French fries?
9. Do you find it hard to share your work with others?
Love to share.
10. Did your writing come from just a need to express yourself or a particular experience that you had?
Imagination took over and had to be expressed. Imagination needs free reign and then a great editor will snip and tuck to make it perfect!
