Want to find out a bit about fantasy author Kyra Dune? Here are her answers to my Blogger Book Fair Mini-Interview questions – Enjoy!
Brandon Luffman: To start things off, tell us a little about yourself. What do you write? Why do you write?
Kyra Dune: I write fantasy books for adults and YA. I write because there’s nothing else I’d rather do. I love it.
BL: What’s your latest release?
KD: Shadow of the Dragon
BL: Do you have a process when you write? What do you do to make it all come together?
KD: I’m a pantser, so no outlines for me. I just sit down and write whatever comes into my head. It can make for a messy first draft, but it works for me.
BL: What about the editing and revision stage? What’s your process there?
KD: I write three drafts of each book and then pass the finished product on to my proofreader. Then I read it over once more myself and it’s done.
BL: When you get an idea for a new story, what do you do with it?
KD: I put into a computer file for future reference.
BL: Who is your ideal reader? Describe who you feel your books are directed at.
KD: Anybody who likes a good fantasy book and a story that focuses on the characters.
BL: How did you decide to take up writing as a serious pursuit?
KD: I’ve been writing since I was nine years old. I always wanted to be a writer and my life progressed in such a way that I was able to chase that dream.
BL: What’s next for you and your work? What’s your next project?
KD: I’m always working on five projects at a time. It helps to keep writer’s block at bay. Right now I’m working on book four of an adult High Fantasy Series, book three of a YA Sword and Sorcery trilogy, the sequel to a YA Epic Fantasy, an adult Urban Fantasy, and a YA Epic Fantasy.
