What’s your name and what genre would you consider your books to be?

 I’m Sarah Stein and I write Contemporary, PNR and Erotic Romance.

 

Tell me about your book. How did you come up with that (story, angle, idea)?

Wow. I have way too many books and/or stories to discuss to focus on just one. Lol

How did you get interested in writing this particular genre (historical novels, mysteries, sci-fi, children’s books, etc.)?

I’ve always loved reading romance and so I wanted to write it as well.

 

What kind of research did you do for this book?

I research quite a bit for each story.

Where did you get the inspiration/idea for your series?

One day I thought well why not. Lol I could totally try my hand at writing a series and so I started jotting down character names and places.

 

What kind of research did you do for this book?

I had to research Alaska, and wolf traits.

Was it always meant to become a series?

Yes.

 

What’s a typical working day like for you? When and where do you write? Do you set a daily writing goal?

I write on the laptop most of the time because when I’m on the desktop I end up searching the internet. Lol I also write when I feel like I have something to say. There is no set word count for the day or week.

Do you have a new book in the making and if so, what’s the name of your upcoming book?

I just finished writing From the Ashes that’s featured in the For Melissa anthology and I’m currently working on Damaged, which is the third book in The White Stealth Clan series.

 

How important are character names to you in your books? Is there a special meaning to any of the names?

There aren’t any special meanings to my character’s names.

What is the hardest part of writing for you?

I think the hardest part of writing is sitting there knowing that I have a deadline, but stuck with the story.

 

What do you think of book trailers? Do you have a trailer or do you intend to create one for your own book?

I like book trailers, but I don’t have my own.

What’s the best thing about being an author?

I guess the best thing about being an author is writing. I get to create stories for readers to enjoy.

 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In ten years, I’m hoping to have more stories under my belt and at least have a bestseller.

Have you always liked to write?

I’ve enjoyed writing since I was a teenager.

 

What writing advice do you have for aspiring authors?

Don’t give up. It can be very difficult especially when there are critics.

 

If you didn’t like writing books, or weren’t any good at it, what would you like to do for a living?

Oh gosh. If I could be a singer, I’d totally go for it. Unfortunately, I have stage fright. Lol

Do you read reviews of your book(s)? Do you respond to them, good or bad? How do you deal with the bad?

It just depends. Sometimes I read the reviews and I never respond to them. The bad reviews hurt, but you just have to take the bad with the good.

 

What is your least favourite part of the writing / publishing process?

The least favorite part is the ending because it always feels like there’s more, but I’m not sure where to go with it yet.

Where did your love of books come from?

When I was a teenager, I started on Harlequin romances and on the side I’d read Nora Roberts and Anne Rice. My mom loved to read and so one day I decided to read something I would like instead of what’s forced on us in school. Lol

 

Do you have any favorite authors or favorite books?

Yes. Anne Rice, Laurell K. Hamilton, Nora Roberts, Tiffany Reisz and so much more.

Of all the characters you have created, which is your favourite and why?

I think Jolene from Her Will is my favorite. She’s headstrong and knows exactly what she wants.

 

Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

I write what I want and if the readers are interested, they’ll decide for themselves.

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?

I’m friends with quite a few, especially ones that write with me in anthologies.
