Smashwords Interview with C.A. Edwards
While working with Smashwords to make my novel available for sale, there were a number of questions I was asked about writing and my reading interests. Here is the interview for you to enjoy.
Once I have taken it as far as I can, I hire an editor to give me feedback on the story and any issues. After another round of revision, it is time for a proofread, which I have someone else do for me. After reading your story so many times, you begin to overlook any flaws.
Finally, it is time for the interior layout and getting all the finishing touches ready for publishing. It is a long process, but it is rewarding.
Christy by Catherine Marshall – A wonderful story about life in the mountains of Tennessee. I was drawn to the balance of struggle and hope.
Little House On The Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder – Who hasn’t read these series? I would watch the TV show with my grandparents and read the books. A great read that is fun and educational.
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery – I’m Canadian. How could I not include this book? I still cry every time Matthew dies.
Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter – No matter how tough things got for Pollyanna, she was optimistic. Positivity goes a long way.
