One of the published writers who donated a book to the Rules of Three Blogfest is Faith Mortimer. What’s been wonderful about the blogfest already is being turned onto writers I have not had the privilege to experience before.

Damyanti, Lisa, JC and I thought we’d thank the wonderful writers who offered their work as prizes by spreading the love in our various blogs via email interviews. To see all of our featured authors, CLICK HERE

Here is Faith’s answers:

1.            Tell us about the book you are donating.
Echoes of Life and Love; is a collection of six short stories. The topics cover romance, paranormal, mystery and murder
2.            Why are you donating a book to this blog fest?
I thought it was a nice thing to do. The organizer (ed: Lisa Vooght)  was polite to ask me and I thought it a good cause.
3.            Can you think of a genre, which is currently out of your comfort zone, but intrigues you enough to take up the challenge of writing in it?
I normally write either mystery and murder novels or action and adventure. As my previous novels all contain a certain amount of romance I have decided to now write a mystery romance. I’m well into it and hope to finish it this year for publication.
4.            Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m English and left-handed. I came to writing quite late in life (ahem) although I have always dabbled. I love good food, fine wines, diving, running and exploring. And of course reading and writing. I spend my time between England and Cyprus where we live most of the time. It’s quite a multi-cultural existence, and I love it.
5.            What are your views on Self-publishing Vs  Traditional publishing?
I remember reading about self-publishing and E Books about 3 years ago when all the ‘big’ names in publishing were saying e Books would not last. Oh Yeah? It’s exciting, I can control my own life and I’m answerable to no one.
I’m very excited about all the changes in publishing these days, because it means authors have direct access to their readers. It’s a fantastic time to be a writer.

    Nothing wrong with coming late to the game. Some of us just needed to simmer longer.

    Nice interview. As a newly published indie author, I’m heartened by Faith’s comments on self publishing.
