Author Interview - Elizabeth Moldovan discusses about her books and thoughts on life

I am a mum of 4 adult children and 1 teenager. I went public with my autobiography specifically to help people who find themselves in a dark place like used to be in. I hope you enjoy reading my story.
In an interview to TALKTOBLOGGER.COM, Elizabeth Moldovan gets talking about her books, readers, roaring success, and of course her thoughts on life! Catch the interesting conversation here!
What motivates you to write?
       I write very simply and enjoy helping other people by encouraging them and receiving very positive feedback from them. I get very motivated to keep writing about my life.
What was the feeling when your first book got published? How did you handle that moment of glory and self-pride, were people supportive or something else?
       There really was no moment of glory or self pride. I was quite shocked because I had no control and the entire process was rushed and I felt a lot of stress because the publishers seemed to have no clue as to what they were doing. Initially they sent the wrong manuscript to the printers for the first print run. I was so shocked at their incompetence that I threatened to not attend the book launch or to give the books away for free. The church that held the book launch made their money back and then I never heard back from anyone. Even the editor and so called friends ignored me. It was like I was thrown in the deep end and left to drown. After the correct manuscript was sent through by the publishers, they sent me my first royalty cheque and it bounced and the bank charged me 30$. I finally let them go last year and went independent. This has proved to be very successful as I have learnt so much in the past three years.
How do you take writing novels, as a career or hobby or between both?
It is certainly not a career or a hobby for me. I would say writing my true life story and going public is a labour of love. I serve for the greater good and make no profits from book sales. Profits are used to send copies of my book to people who need help.
For your books you must be doing a lot of research topics and themes. How did you go about it?
       No, I did not do any research because it is my true life story. I did ask my children to refresh my memory though about incidents etc. that happened in the past. I also wanted a few funny stories so that the book would not be too heavy for the reader.
What is the best aspect about your writing that you love most?
       I love writing because I know that is how other people heal and get courageous when they hear about people’s life stories and realize they are not alone.
Is getting published traditionally tough? Share your views.
       Yes it is. No well known publishing houses accept manuscripts anymore unless you pay a literary agent to help push it through. Even then, there are no guarantees, I started out publishing it for free on the wattpad app. with the help of my youngest daughter, 13 years old at the time.
Tell us about your recently published book or the upcoming book?
       I am very excited to be part of a new book release, in June 2019. The creator is uk award winning author, Sam Houghton. She has gathered 11 people from all over the world to share their true life stories in a new book called, “Courage: Stories Of Darkness To Light.” Three men and 8 women who have travelled through very difficult life issues and all overcome them to help others in the community in a positive way.
There are many new writers out there who are aspiring to get their work published. What would you say to them? 
Go independent, either via your own website using paypal. Amazon takes too much money and it is difficult to get royalties from countries where your books sells, apart from your own. Stay away from anyone charges money. Start small, dream big and never ever give up Hope.

Author Interview - Florencia LaChance discusses about her books and thoughts on life

Florencia LaChance was born on August 11, 1967 and spent most of her childhood being raised in Maine.  She was given up to the State of Maine at age 13, after suffering sexual and physical abuse and became extremely rebellious and self-sabotaging.  With the help of some key mentors, she got herself together by age 16, emancipated herself and became self-supporting. At age 17 she was accepted to Boston College, an achievement after being in over 16 foster homes.  She had a son two months after turning 19, Joshua (aka Whoislogic on Soundcloud and Insta) who motivated her to truly make something of herself.  Mulatto: Daughter of America is her 8th book, first published and currently a Top-Seller in YA Bio.

Author Interview - Vince Nolan discusses about his book "Love Happens" and thoughts on life

As a lifelong writer with a fascination for fantasy and magic, I've gone from creating my own fan fiction screenplay ("Bewitched" Meets "I Dream of Jeannie") to self-publishing my first fantasy novel (The Rainbow in the Room) to my latest lighthearted, supernatural romantic comedy (Love Happens). In my unfortunately infrequent spare time, I enjoy reading classic authors, such as Thorne Smith and Ian Fleming, and learning from the masters in their genres. Every day presents new opportunities, challenges and surprises—and I look forward to every one of them.
