We had time for a quick chat with Dani Jo Love, author of Plain Crazy, to find out a bit more about her and her new novel.
Tell us something unexpected about yourself!
Here are a few things, I love whiskey. I’ve jumped out of a plane and I like driving fast… really fast.
What novels affected you the most growing up?
Lord of the Flies
Where did the idea for your current book come from?
After producing a reality show dealing with addictions, I was most fascinated by the housewives that are addicted to prescription drugs and what led them down that path.
Do you think there’s any way you could ever run out of ideas for books?
I don’t think so. There are myriad of experiences and I’m fascinated by the journey’s of others and how they overcome obstacles.
What is your routine for writing and has this method changed over the span of your career?
My routine is to write at 5am in the morning to whatever music that’s inspiring me at the time and I’ve been that way for decades. Especially during my scriptwriting years.
How important is marketing and social media for you?
In this day and age, I feel that as an indie-author, marketing and social media are a must for you and your audience to find each other.
What advice would you have for other writers?
Keep writing and be patient.
What are you reading now?
Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty
What’s your next step?
I’m writing the next book in the “Plain Crazy” series.
