It goes without saying that if you want something really bad you have to go out there and get it. Easier said than done, right? Well, I suppose in some cases. As a writer, I love pushing boundaries when it comes to the books I write because I feel that no story or subject should be off limits. I believe that when a writer tells a story, it should be raw, emotional and vivid. Why? Because there has to be some sort of emotional connection between the reader and the story to really draw them in. I want the reader to feel what the characters in my book are feeling and I want them to be able to visualize and see what each and every character is going through. They may laugh, they may cry, they may get upset, heck, they may even cringe, but that to me is what good storytelling should be. You want a story to be on the mind of a reader long after they read it and you do not want them to stop talking about it, at least that is what I want. My “method” of storytelling may be unconventional to say the least, but I would not want it any other way. Readers who have read my debut novel Poka City Blues have responded quite well to it and I cannot wait to publish my next story or novel. I recently published Poka City Blues on Barnes and Noble Nook and I am looking forward to seeing what Nook readers have to say about my book.
