Katie O’Rourke and I are colleagues at Today’s Author, a group of authors who share writing ideas with all who stop by. She has two literary fiction novels under her belt. Monsoon Season, her debut novel, was a bestselling ebook and her second novel, A Long Thaw was released through Amazon Digital Publishing in 2014. Each writer’s story is a little different and Katie agreed to share her journey with you.
What is your marketing plan?
I hate silence while I’m writing so there’s usually music blaring out of those speakers. I do a lot of work here, but I also have a netbook that I use on the couch. I’m looking forward to the invention of a cheap, portable computer you can read in sunlight so I can write in my backyard while getting a tan.
If you have questions, leave them for Katie. I know she’s around the eroom somewhere… When I re-read this interview, I had so many more questions, like how hard was it to switch from agent to self-pub.
Katie O’Rourke was born and raised in New England, growing up along the seacoast of New Hampshire. She went to college in Massachusetts and graduated with a degree in gender and sexuality.
