Let’s welcome Trin Carl as this month’s featured Author. Trin is currently working on a YA Novel, Oh Brother, about a foster child who comes to stay with the Radtke family. Their adopted children, Zion and Amelia, will do anything to make sure this new kid doesn’t change their families’ lives. She plans to publish later this year, so keep your eye out for it. Ever ambitious she’s also starting a Youtube channel where she will post book reviews.
It’s time once again to welcome another Author to my page. Melion Traverse is a writer and a grad student (how do you find the time?).
Do you read outside your genre?
Actually, most of my reading is done outside my genre. Is that a positive or a negative? I don’t really know. The majority of what I read is non-fiction, although I do tend towards reading speculative fiction when I read fiction.
In my monthly series here, I’ve been delighted to interview some up and coming authors. Next up is Kalen Cap. Kalen not only writes delightfully complex novels, but is active in other areas. It makes it all the more special that he spared some time to sit down and answer a few of my questions.
Without further ado, I’d like to welcome Kalen Cap.
Every book comes with its own challenges.
As a full time Independent Author, you are going to be taking on multiple full time jobs. You will not only write full time, but also edit all of them, design the interiors and exteriors, and market them. That’s several full time positions at any major publishing house. Granted a publishing house will be dealing with multiple authors and you only have to worry about you. Still you can expect to spend upwards of sixty hours per week on all of this.
