Butterdragons Publishing #interview

I’m so happy to introduce you to my publisher – Butterdragons Publishing. Please give a warm welcome to BDP.

Tell us a bit about yourselves…

We are a relatively new publishing company, consisting of a small team of professionals and we aim to give our readers great books. We publish a limited number of books per year so that each of the books can get a full attention and be the best version possible. Our readers deserve the best stories we can give them.

Why did you decide to create Butterdragons Publishing? 

We always loved reading and collected books in ridiculous amounts, and we have been connected to the publishing world in various ways over the years. It was always our dream, so when the opportunity presented itself, we decided to turn our passion for books into a business.

What genres do you publish? 

We publish a wide variety of genres, from contemporary fiction and suspense to fantasy and horror, mostly with a romantic element, as well as poetry – we hold a special love for poetry, as you might have noticed.

What are you working on now? 

Currently, we have just released our second yearly anthology and we are preparing to release several poetry collections and a second book of Embers Duology by Victoria Larque, as well as a horror romance by Boris Bacic. For next year we are planning more fantasy books, contemporary fiction, as well as poetry collections, some in two languages.

Do you have any quirks while working? 

This is a tough question, as we are a team and we all have our ways of completing various tasks, but no matter what, we always come together with an optimal result. Some of us prefer to work in complete silence, some prefer noise – those two groups rarely work in the same office. Then we have unusual working hours as some of us are in Europe, some in Australia, some in the United States, but we always find time to come together.

What are your hopes for the future? 

We are hoping to grow but still maintain the exclusivity and not surpass thirty books a year. We plan to maintain and increase the quality of the books we publish, and of course, to win some literary awards.

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

Good editing is the key, as well as consistency in characters and the world building.

Do you have anything to say to your readers? 

Stay tuned because we have some amazing books coming your way!

Horror Author Boris Bacic #interview

Please give a warm welcome to horror author Boris Bacic

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is Boris Bacic and I’m a horror writer from Serbia. I’m a certified fitness coach and a former language and communications coach. In my free time, I go to the gym, I take creepy late-night walks through parks and forests, and recently I started learning more about botany (balance is important).

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes! Ever since I was a child, I used to write stories all the time. As I grew older, I could envision myself sitting in front of a typewriter (now computer) and making my imagination come to life. It’s a job, but it doesn’t feel like one to me.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

All my inspiration comes from daily life. I see something otherwise mundane, and my mind transforms it into something otherworldly. What if this road is on an endless loop? What if there’s a secret government lab under this abandoned house? What if this mannequin comes to life right now? We all have that kind of imagination; writers just let it run wild.

What are you working on now?

While I can’t reveal the exact story, I can say that the book is based on my hometown, which is number one in suicides in Europe. It will be full of suspense and hair-standing-straight moments that will have you clutching your flashlight like your life depends on it.

Do you have any quirks while working?

For me, it’s important to envision being in the world that I’m creating. Sometimes I listen to ominous horror music while writing to get into the element. I also need a quiet environment. It’s difficult to maintain momentum when you’re constantly interrupted by phone calls and social media notifications.

What are your hopes for the future?

My motto is “I won’t stop writing until I’m either famous or dead.” That path is paved with tiny steps, and for now, the next thing I hope for is getting more recognition for my books – either getting acquired by a major publishing company or having my book adapted into a movie.

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

Don’t stop writing.

When I first started publishing my stories, they barely received any recognition. I wrote one more story and told myself that if I didn’t get enough likes, I would quit. Luckily, that story boomed and that helped me launch my first book. Today, I have more than 15 published books and I work full-time as a writer. You never know how close you are to achieving your goals.

Never stop writing.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you for all your support. None of this would be possible without you. I receive emails from readers telling me how much they enjoy my stories, and for me, that’s the true joy of writing.
