Steampunk Granny interviews Terri Louise about Lone Wolfe

You meet the nicest people when you’re a writer and, I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing a few amazingly talented writers. Writers are story tellers and the tales we tell are sometimes plucked from our vivid imaginations, but more often from personal experience. Terri Louise has so graciously agreed to be a guest on my blog and tell us about her new book “Lone Wolfe”.

Marie Gilbert: “Thank you Terri for joining me and my followers. Tell us all about Terri Louis.”

Terri Louise:  “Well, Terri is a mom, a grandmother, a gardener, a dog owner and a lover of the mountains. After a horrid divorce from my ex-husband, I bought a new computer and started writing. I was determined to make that dream come true…And so…I did.”
Marie Gilbert: “When did you start writing and who influenced you?”

Terri Louise: “I’ve been writing for most of my life. I had a few stories published in our local newspaper, but until I got into my eight grade year in middle school, I didn’t have the passion. My favorite teacher helped light the flame and off I went with a dream.”

Marie Gilbert: “Tell us about the book.”

Terri Louise: “My latest book is “Lone Wolfe”. Perfectly spelled incorrectly, just the way he was. Perfectly imperfect! It is about my best friend and his death. How it affected me and my whole family and what happened after he was gone. Although Mr. Bill was gone, we had many things occur that would not have if not for him, and we learned that maybe he wasn’t all the way gone.”
Marie Gilbert: “Did you go traditional publishing or self- publishing?”

Terri Louise: “I self-published on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.” http://www.amazon.com/terri-louise/e/B0071A7879q/REF=sr
Marie Gilbert: “How are you using social media to promote your book?”

Terri Louise: “I don’t overdue the social media, but I do use Twitter and Facebook and about me to advertise what I have for readers.”

Marie Gilbert: “Do you belong to a writers’ group?”

Terri Louise: “I have several writers’ groups that I am in. I’m not as socially active as I would like to be, but for the time being it will have to do. I am in Authors and Book Lover Discussion group, Lori R. Lopez and Friends, ASMSG, Pimping Indie and Book Summit Talk and Giveaway for Readers. I enjoy all of them.”

Marie Gilbert: “What encouraging words would you like to say to new writers who are just starting out?”

Terri Louise: “Just write! Even if you can only get one word out a day…Write! And one day at a time, you will find your way to being published.
