Please give a warm welcome to author Erin O’Kane
Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Erin and I live in the UK with my husband. I’m always reading, writing or napping, and have an obsession with cake and other baked goods! I write RH fantasy and paranormal romance, and also co-write with K.A Knight and Loxley Savage.
What has happened work wise since our last interview?
Since our last interview I’m now writing full time! I used to work part-time in health care, but last year in July, I quit and I’m now a full time author.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
Fires of the Fae came about as I was finishing my War and Deceit series (fantasy RH). Although the character’s story arc came to an end, I knew that I wasn’t ready to let this world go yet.
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on finishing up A Lady of Embers
Do you have any quirks while working?
I often speed through the dialogue, jotting down the words and then coming back and filling in the actions and the ‘he said’ ‘she said’ parts. I have a very short memory, and I can almost visualise the scenes, so I have to jot it down quickly!
What are your hopes for the future?
Ooh, that’s a deep question that I don’t have an answer for! Instead I can tell you what I’m looking forward too? I can’t wait for book signings to start again and meet some of my readers.
What have you learned about publishing since our first interview?
Oh gosh. I feel like I learn something new everyday! I’ve learnt it can be a pretty harsh place, and very isolating. However, if you can get a good author tribe with other indie authors and amazing readers, it can also be so rewarding.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
Yes, thank you! Without all of you, I wouldn’t have this amazing job. Your support allows me to get lost in my fantasy worlds, so thank you ♡
