Author Sandra Kaye #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Sandra Kaye

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is Sandra Kaye. I am the oldest of three children and the only girl. I’m a proud mother of adult children and Gee Gee to four awesome grandchildren. My day job is as a registered nurse.  

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Honestly no. I have always loved to write. When I was younger it was mostly just poetry, thought, musings. Nothing I ever wanted to show anyone. Just a way to get out of my own head. But reading was my true love. The more I read, the more I found myself finishing a book and thinking, “That was good, but it would have been better if this had happened or if they did this.”

One day my fiancé said, “well then why don’t you write it the way you want?” So, I did. I started researching and found a couple YouTube videos by Jaymin Eve about her journey and started talking to other indie authors. I went to my first signing and met this amazing group of people and made some great friends that have been so very kind and helpful.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m a Libra an October girl all the way so my love of Witches has always been there. My first series is a PNR featuring sister witches and last year I was working with a couple of fabulous PA’s and we got to talking about my future works and I mentioned I wanted to try my hand at a Reverse Harem book and they told me we needed one about witches so the idea was born.

What are you working on now?

Well, Witch (Hemlock Hollow, book 1) my witchy reverse harem just released on May 1st, 2021 so I’m working on book two. I plan for this to be a trilogy. I’m also working on book 3 of my debut series, The Ravenwood series and thinking about adding a second children’s book to go with the chapter book I wrote for my granddaughter called Isabella and her magical adventure.

Quirks while I write?

I have to have the series Bones playing or I can’t concentrate.  I’ve tried music I just sing or end up typing the words to the song and if something I haven’t already memorized every episode of is on I listen to that and can’t put decent words to the page.

What are your hopes for the future?

I’m still very young in the author game so I guess my hopes are to continue to write and publish. Maybe in a few more years it will transition into something I do fulltime but I’m not really sure. Right now, writing is my escape from the day to day. It’s fun. Well except for the negative reviews. Those are never fun. But if I had to write to pay the bills, I’m not sure yet how that might look.

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

Don’t try to do absolutely everything every person you talk to says. Everyone’s journey is different. This in no way means ignore the advice but, in the end, it is your journey, and it needs to be what you want. Plus, everyone has different opinions and if you try to do everything you will go crazy and likely lose your own vision for what you want.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

First, I want to say thank you for giving my book babies a chance. I hope you get as much joy reading them as I had writing them. Hopefully there will be many more to come. Also, I enjoy hearing all your thought both good and bad. Though I am human and no matter what our mothers might have told us, words do hurt. So, please keep in mind, not just with my works but with all art, written and otherwise, constructive criticism would be greatly prefer as opposed to negative or rude comments that are just mean. We are only human after all.
