Halloween Sucks - Says Lily Drake Blog Hop - Q&A

It's day 2 of the Halloween Sucks Lily Drake Blog Hop and today we have a special treat for all the hoppers out there.

We invited author T. Michelle Nelson to tell us a little bit about her writing life and her upcoming release in this Q&A. Check it out and don't forget to enter the raffle for some cool Lily Drake swag!

AWD: When did you decide you wanted to be a writer? 
TMN: I don’t think I ever set out to be a writer, I just enjoy writing.

AWD: How would you describe the genre in which you do most of your writing? 
TMN: Paranormal Romance is how it’s always classified, but I like to think of it as vampire romance with a touch of dark humor.

AWD: Who is your target audience? 
TMN: Anyone who likes a love story and enjoys laughing… and of course doesn’t mind a little blood here and there.

AWD: Do you write everyday? How much time do you spend on your writing? 
TMN: I don’t write every day. I write when I really feel like it and am excited about it. I really don’t want my writing to feel like a chore, and I think when I try to write and I’m not totally into it the story suffers.

AWD: Which aspects of the work that you put into the book did you find most difficult? 
TMN: This may sound funny, but the most difficult part of the process was choosing a title.  I went through about a million really bad and cheesy ideas.

AWD: Which did you enjoy most? 
TMN: Seeing the cover for the first was really amazing. The whole cover reveal is a real treat.  Plus I love the publicity.  Interviews, talking to people about my book, meeting people, I’m definitely not one of those introverted writers.  I enjoy talking as much as writing.

AWD: What will your next book be about? 
My next book is the second installment of the Lily Drake series. It will continue with Lily’s story.

AWD: What would you say has been your most significant achievement as a writer? 
TMN: When my mother finished reading my book and told me that she liked it.
