Please give a warm welcome to author Helen Scott
Tell us a bit about yourself
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I think in the back of my mind I did, but I never really considered it to be much of a possibility until a few years ago. Once I set my mind to it I tried to learn as much as I could about all aspects of it and am still working on that today. Being an author isn’t a stagnant thing for me. I’m always trying to better my writing skills and overall business knowledge.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
Honestly? A writing prompt that got stuck in my head like a favorite song. The more I thought about it the more the world filled out in my head and the more I knew I had to write it!
What are you working on now?
A novella for an anthology that’s about the descendants of cupid, and of course my Four Worlds series.
Do you have any quirks while writing?
I always either write in silence or listen to instrumental music. If I listen to music with words it usually ends with me singing along instead of writing.
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope that I can continue to write books that people enjoy, and that I can make enough money that I don’t have to go back to a day job and can keep doing what I love.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
Study. Study the craft, study the business, study what other writers have done to become successful, then make it work for you and your style.
Do you have anything to say to your fans?
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. There will never be enough words to explain how I feel knowing that people are reading, and hopefully enjoying, my work as an author. I hope you know just how special you all make me feel and how amazing I think you are. Thank you for supporting me on this wild ride!
