Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Gina Manis. I am a new published author but have been writing for several years. I love romance books of any genre.

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have always wanted to be an author. I grew up loving books and wrote many short stories and poems. But I was discouraged and moved on as I grew up. It was only after giving up my career that I got back into writing. I am making a go of it now and don’t intend to give up.

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My inspiration for the series I have first published came from another book I was writing. I stopped working on it completely to write the legend that was within it. I am working on publishing both of the series now with the legend almost complete and the second series about halfway there.

What are you working on now?

Well I do have other projects I am working on also. I have an earlier series I have just started to get edited as well. It is about a concubine. That makes three projects in the works and one still on hold. On top of that, I constantly am writing down ideas for my future series. Let’s just say, I’m not going anywhere.

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I like to write outside when the weather is nice. I live out in the country and it is so quiet here. I love being in the silence and listening to the wind or the rustle of the leaves. I don’t mind the sound of one of my dogs barking, or a chicken chirping, the ducks quaking, or those stingy cows mowing. Maybe its not that quiet but at moments it is and I think that is when i connect most to writing.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I built a business online already once, I don’t see why I can’t do it as an author. My past will see me into the future and I keep goals and plans I make. My five year goal is to have all may series publish and starting on new ones. That would be about 20 bookks published. When I say that number it scares me a little. But I have a good start with about 12 already written. By that time, I plan on having a good team working with me and keep them rolling out after that.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

It’s fun if you love it. I have met so many authors and they seem to be some of the happiest people ever. Take your time and do it right. Let it show in your writing.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I write not to disappoint. My books focus on so many issues and I like to give my character a real person vibe. I show their flaws, their mistakes and then I show their passions and why you should love them. I like to tie into an adventure to explorer, with human growth that can inspire. I don’t know if I meet those demands I put on myself but I hope to get there someday.
