Meet an author: Eva King

Tell us a little about yourself and your background?

 

I was born in Gran Canarias, Spain- the Hawaii of Europe- and moved to Scotland in my early teens. There I studied childcare and education, married my husband and dragged the whole family back to Spain.

 

 

What would you say is your more iconic novel and why?

 

I’m a brand new writer, with only one novel under my belt. So, I’m guessing that Damage Control-my one and only- is it.

 

Which writers inspire you?

 

All of them. I never thought that writing a novel would take so much time and dedication. To me, every single author is an inspiration, even if I haven’t read their book yet.

 

Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?

 

No, not an actual novel. I’ve worked with other writers to make an anthology.

That’s actually how I got my first break as a writer. My lovely publisher was accepting submissions for an Anthology. I sent my story and voila!

 

When did you decide to become a writer?

 

I have to be honest, it wasn’t a lifelong dream that most writers have. To me was more like an achievement that I needed to complete. I had to proof myself that I could do it.

I started writing once I read Twilight, at night time between feeds when my daughter was born. That’s when I thought, if Stephanie Meyer could do it, so could I.

 

Do you write full-time or part-time?

 

Part-time at the moment. Maybe sometime in the future it will be full-time.

 

Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you?

 

I’ve tried working on an outline, just to keep myself slightly more organized, but it felt fake.

Now I prefer to go with the flow, see where it takes me. It does take me longer, but it feels right.

 

Do you have a strategy for finding reviewers?

 

I’m not sure if it’s a strategy. I contact as many blogs as I can. Most of the time only have of them answer, but not all of them review.

 

What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?

The good reviews I love, who doesn’t. They’re good at stroking your ego.

Bad reviews are okay as long it has constructive criticism. But then, I have to remind myself that not everyone has the same taste.

 

How can readers discover more about you and you work?

In the usual social media links. Here are mine ones:
