I want this blog not to just be about myself or my novel lust or love, I want to promote others especially those that have been a big support to me from the start right threw to the publishing company who will be publishing my first novel lust of love.

I would like to introduce Louisa Mullerworth a Fellow Author and Marketing Adviser  for nocturnal press publications. Louisa is an amazing person and I really don’t know how she finds the hours in the day to do all the things she does. Louisa has been promoting me on her face book page and following my process for quite some time now. She is always there with great advice and was the one who actually introduced me to nocturnal press publications so without her I wouldn’t have known about the company or be  working with some fabulous people who are going to be publishing my first book.

1)     How old were you when you first started writing?

I was Nine when I started writing, it was funny really. It started as an escape but it evolved into a passion and I can’t now imagine doing anything else other than what I do.

2)     Which genre do you love to read?

I love to read crime fiction and romance comedies, but I also love science fiction thrillers. So really it depends on my mood. The first book I really sat down and read and possibly the most influential was Matthew Riley’s ‘CONTEST’. I have read it at least a dozen times and could read it again with ease. I love it!

3)     When was your first novel published?

2nd November 2011; Mistol; A New Beginning. It will be re-released in 2014 as a second edition after a round of editing and a tweak here and there.

4)     What is you most current novel that has been published/due to be published

Dying To Help; The Beginning Of The End is due out June 18th 2014. It is my first Sci- Fi thriller but one I have been working on for almost ten years! It is wonderful to know that it will be out soon. But also sad, it is an end of an era, although there are two more books to follow in this particular series…

5)     How long have you been with nocturnal press publications?

I signed with Nocturnal Press Publications in September of this year, which seems like such a long time ago now! It is a lovely place to work for and be a part of.

6)     How did you get into marketing for nocturnal press publications?

Do you know what, I am not all that sure… I did a lot of my own marketing and found myself working with some wonderful companies to advertise Dying To Help such as Leicester Tigers, Leicester High cross, Hinckley Golf Club and Moore’s Restaurant in Newton Poppleford. All before I had the cover I can’t say it was easy but it was enjoyable. It is a rush to approach a company and ask if I can use them, or do an event with them. Then a few weeks ago Nocturnal Press asked if I would give the other authors advice with how to do the same. And I love it just as much as writing.

7)     What do you mainly blog about?

I mainly blog about how writing effects you, how creative work on all levels effects people and updates on Nocturnal Press and of course Author Interviews.

8)     Please tell me 3 things that is not commonly know about yourself?

Would you believe me if I said I was shy? Erm, I love nothing more than to curl up with my fiance and dog and watch Family Guy and American Dad…. I strive to find a happy work/ home life balance.

Please attach all links to pages I can find you on and your work thank you xx

Thanks to Louisa for some great answers I would also like to introduce the founder of nocturnal press publications Who is also a author himself.

I have only recently been signed with nocturnal press publications and started  working with Shane and his team who have been giving me such very good support  and inspiring me to do more .

Shane is a young inspiring fantasy novelist who started writing at a young  age of thirteen and by 2011 he had successfully started and become  the Founder, Chairman and CEO/Author · (Aug 5, 2011 to present) of nocturnal press publications

Questions

1)      How old were you when you first started writing

“I started writing when I was 15 years old. I had to do a short story as part of my GCSE coursework and I fell in love with writing from that moment.”

2)      Which genre do you love to read?

“I love to read mostly everything but my absolute favorite genre would be fantasy/mythology. I grew up with Tolkien’s classics such as The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings and I also love reading about the Olympian gods when I was younger.”

3)      When was your first novel published?

My debut book was published and released on September 27th. You can purchase it at http://www.npuniverse.com/books/the-last-child-of-asgard-delta/”

4)      What is you most current novel that has been published/due to be published?

“My most current would be the book that is available now, however I am already halfway through the sequel in the trilogy called The Last Child of Asgard; Loki. I will be releasing this next August.”

5)      How did you get into starting your own publishing company nocturnal press publications?

“Being an author myself, I went down the route of sending my manuscript to various publishers. Most of them ignored me, but a certain company who I am not at liberty to give their name, got back to me and said that they liked my work. They gave me all this literature and it was then, that I discovered how much the big publishers take in percentages. I wasn’t successful and for that I am very glad because if I had been published by them, I would not have had the idea to form Nocturnal Press Publications. We are officially six years old now and we are growing all the time.”

6)      What interested you to start  doing blogs?

“I love how interactive they are. You get to be really close to your readers and interact with them as they would you. I feel it makes the experience a much more rewarding one.”

7)      What do you mainly blog about?

“I myself blog on our website: www.npuniverse.com about the announcements and development of the company. I don’t currently have one for me as an author but I am thinking about doing so.”

8)      Please tell me 3 things that is not commonly know about yourself?

“OK, I am afraid of wasps, absolutely petrified of them.

I spent from 2008 to 2009 completely homeless when I spent the year couch hopping as well as sleeping in doorways and somebody’s garage, before I found the place I am living in now with my beautiful fiancee, two cats and in 5 months time this Sunday, our child.

Final thing would be that when I was younger I was obsessed with putting things in my ears and I managed to get Lego, crayons, cotton, you name it, it went in my ears… And I can’t believe I just mentioned that in an interview *
