Interview with P.A.W.S. author Debbie Manber Kupfer Hello Debbie Manber Kupfer, nice to visit with you today. Photo courtesy of Debbie.

Hi everyone! The doorbell just went and I have to hurry to the door to see who is there. (Looking through the peephole in the door). Oh how wonderful, it is author Debbie Manber Kupfer! Hi Debbie, welcome to the Parfait-verse. I hope all is well.

What’s that? Oh yes, I have restocked the shelves. After Raymond Alexander Kukkee ate all of the ice cream sandwiches, I went and got us Oreos instead. Here, sit down and let’s talk a bit about you.

Debbie, please tell us a little about yourself and how you first became interested in writing.

I grew up in London and have lived in Israel, North Carolina, and New York before ending up in St. Louis where I live with my husband, two kids, and the real ruler of our household, our kitty, Miri…

I am Supposed to Write in the Same Genre. . .What?

Margo L. Dill

Find Margo’s Books Here!

 

One of the biggest pieces of marketing advice out there is build a platform, grow an audience and write in the same genre. Sure, people with several books, such as romance, will sometimes get a pen name and switch to romantic suspense or something similar. But generally, good, little authors write a young adult fantasy, and then they write a sequel or at least another young adult fantasy. It’s very smart.

But I did not do this.

Hopefully, there’s at least one other author out there besides me who likes to struggle through marketing and building an audience. If you are nodding your head, then please find me on Facebook, and let’s start our own private Facebook group, where we can complain and whine together.

Seriously, what happened to me?

Gnomes and Zombies and Goblins, Oh My!

MotherGoose

Monster Goose Nursery Rhymes by Henry, Josh, and Harrison Hertz and illustrated by Abigail Larson is a stunningly beautiful picture book they will keep you giggling from the first, Hefty Jack Horner to the last (and my personal favorite), This Little Hydra.

It is a picture book that is meant to be shared over and over again. Its premise is simple, take traditional Mother Goose rhymes and switch them up by adding fantasy elements, so that Wee Willie Winkie becomes Wee Willie Werewolf and Mary takes her hippogriff to school.

A five star read. – Fun for all ages!

Author RA BakerHello, I’m R.A. Baker and I’m a speculative fiction author for JK Publishing. I live in the great state of Virginia and I’ve written science fiction, fantasy, paranormal short stories, and several books. I’ve been writing stories since the age of seven and I’ve been writing professionally as a published author for about 15 years. During this time I’ve also juggled the responsibilities of being a dad to two great kids, and a computer analyst for a day job that pays the bills between royalty checks.

When and why did you begin writing?

For me, writing was a bit of self-discovery—a long, meandering process that eventually made me the person I am today. In grade school (third or fourth grade…
