I’m pleased to welcome Frances Pauli to my blog today.
Katie: Your current book is “Roarke.” Can you please give us a brief synopsis?
While her body struggles to heal she is left to unravel the circumstances around her miraculous recovery. Torn between a strong dislike for the man claiming to be her fiance’ and an inexplicable attraction to Roarke, the silent red-head responsible for her “death”, Nora can accept nothing at face value.
Even the fleeting images triggered by Roarke’s presence seem to lead her further into deception. As her nightmares begin to confirm the impossible truth of her demise, her shadowy memories paint a picture of a past she is less than comfortable with. While her fiance’ may hold the answers she seeks, it is to Roarke that she finds herself repeatedly turning.
When resolving the mystery behind her threatens any chance at her future, she is forced to leave the past alone in order to move forward. But when the dust finally clears, who she has been proves more disturbing than simply choosing between two men.
Katie: Tell us what speculative fiction is. Is this story considered speculative fiction?
Katie: What inspired you to write this book?
Katie: Is all your writing in the science fiction romance genre? Why or why not.
Katie: Is “Roarke” an e-book, self-published or traditionally published? Why did you chose to publish in this way?
Katie: You mention that you have no less than four books coming out next year through two e-houses. That’s a fantastic accomplishment. Are you going to continue to e-publish your books?
Katie: What kind of promoting do you do for your books?
Katie: Do you think it is harder or easier to promote an e-book than a print book?
But seriously, easy is one thing. The proof will be in the pudding. Which is more effective? That’s the question. Somehow I think face to face promotions may have a tad larger effect on sales.
Katie: What piece of advice would you give to someone who is considering e-publishing?
Best of all, write a great book. Be open to criticism….I should say that twice. Be open…it’s not perfect. It’s never perfect. Listen and play nice and never take yourself too seriously.Thanks so much for having me!
