About the author:
Faye Dylan is a curvy woman who has been married to her hunky truck driver for almost fifteen years. When she saw a definite lack of truck driver heroes in romance stories, she decided to write her own. She’s been reading steamy romance stories since she was a teenager and is having a blast writing her own! Follow me on Amazon, Facebook or Instagram to stay in touch!
What inspires you to write romantic fiction?
I’ve always loved reading romantic stories for as long as I can remember. Even as a little girl my favourite stories were always the ones about the prince and the princess falling in love! When I saw that romantic stories about curvier women were becoming popular, I knew that was the type of thing that I needed to write!
Tell us about how you write.
I pour my first cup of coffee for the day, open up the blinds to let the natural light stream in through the windows and open up my laptop and start writing. I’m not a huge outliner, but before I begin a new story I always make a note of what the characters look like in my mind and where I generally want the story to go, although it often ends up differently than I originally planned.
Do you listen to or talk to to your characters?
Absolutely. My characters tell me what’s happening and I’m just the medium.
What advice would you give other romance writers?
Don’t get too hung up on what other authors are doing. Everyone has different time constraints, budgets, etc and we are all on our own journey. The most important thing will always be to write. That’s the only way to get better and the only way to get your stories out there. Learning ads and everything else can come later. And don’t be so hard on yourself! We’re always our own worst critics.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I hadn’t been reading like I used to when one day I discovered kindle short reads on Amazon. I loved that I could start and finish a book in a couple of sessions. When I decided that’s what I wanted to write, I learned all about self publishing through Amazon KDP and that’s what I’ve been doing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think self publishing is only going to continue to gain popularity. Authors don’t want to wait to have their books published and readers don’t want to wait to read them!
