Author Interview: Whitney Cannavina
About the author:
I’m here to make a life out of what I love, and what I love is reading, writing, and blogging. I truly believe that passion is relayed back to my readers through the innovative and exciting content that I post.
I am an author, blogger, and mom to the best kid ever. On the days that are not hectic (which is hardly ever) I spend my time writing what I can as I have always been imaginative making up stories and friends ever since I was younger.
I grew up in Southern California, and on top of being and author, blogger and mom, I also love to watch movies, read excessively, go to hockey and baseball games, and relax with just my friends and family.
I hope you take the chance to check out my books and enjoy them.
What inspires you to write romantic fiction?
I am a romance junkie. I love the different views on romance and how the couple fell in love e. Passing couples on the street of all ages give me plenty of ideas. I try to imagine how they fell in love and that is the most inspiring notion that we don’t know how they got there.
Tell us about how you write.
Oh, man. I tend to jump around in my writing. I always have an outline with the beginning and ending and ideas for the middle, but I tend to just write and change ideas as I go. I usually write between books to help get the juices flowing. That way if an idea I want doesn’t work for one story, it might for the other.
Do you listen to or talk to to your characters?
In a way yes. I do a ‘go with the flow’ sort of thing. They just tell me as I’m writing what’s going to happen as my fingers fly across the keyboard.
What advice would you give other romance writers?
Write from the heart. If you love what you’ve written, don’t let someone else try to change it. It’s your view of the love story for others to enjoy.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I tried indie publishing, but I felt that I couldn’t give my books the attention they needed. Kingston publishing was new and I wanted to support a company that was brought about by readers, authors, and bloggers instead of corporate. I feel they give the Author the room to grow without stifling their writing or trying to change them.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think it’s going to grow exponentially with more indie publishing and smaller publishers that spent time in the indie world. There are so many great authors out there who’s work hasn’t been seen Just because of the big names publishing houses pass on many stories so they do it themselves making the book industry grow and why the book community is so amazing now.
Which romance sub-genere(s) fit your stories best?
YA Romance but I have also ventured into other romance stories because I love to expand and try new sub genres.
My books are available in the following formats:
