She's So Sexy...Author Vonda Norwood

Happy Friday!! I am very excited to kick off the weekend with fun and sexy wild new author, Vonda Norwood.  

Your current book is Indie Authors Make Better Lovers. That is such a catchy title, tell us a little bit about it and what was the inspiration behind it:

The title was easy. What makes a person a good lover depends on a person's own sexual needs. In my case, in this story, the need was to realize a fantasy to completion. Trying on my own wasn't working out for me and that gave me a feeling of hopelessness. In the end, another author offers hope and I realize that by working together, my need could be fulfilled. All in all, it's a story about helping each other and working together to give each other a reason to hope. The idea came to me little by little while tweeting with a group of wonderful people. My main thoughts were about how a lot of people think of me as someone who gets a lot of flirtations and is someone who's online having affairs. A lot of people ask me about that because I promote myself as obnoxiously provocative. I knew it would happen, so I promote in a way that makes the men shy away (they're afraid of me)and I can get away with a lot of obnoxiousness. Yea, I'm proud. :-D We all want to call attention to our projects and I see a lot of people grouping together to help each other out, but the end result is that we authors are all becoming very familiar with each other, but we don't really have a purchasing audience. I could never pretend to know a complete solution, but I do see it as a big brick wall for us all. Putting those thoughts together, I came up with Indie Authors Make Better Lovers.

How did you start down this path of writing for publication?

I think that most people write stories with hopes that someone will read and enjoy it as much as they do writing it. I laughed to think of someone reading any of my stories and hope that they'll identify with the characters and plot. My eldest daughter told me to self publish on Amazon and so I did. Then she told me that I should try to advertise on Twitter.com, so I am.

If we looked at your bookshelves or your Kindle/Nook, what are some titles we would find?

I have over 20 books in that one library and about 10 in my smashwords library and many new paper backs at home. I couldn't name 1 with out naming the others. All of the books are of a wide range of genres written my great writers, all of whom I've met on twitter. I would hate to give anyone a feeling of being left out of a mention.

What is next for you?

The month of April is taken up for a blog tour called "30 days of...some sort of misery" I like to tease Christopher Starr about that. He's (the crazy head pal of mine who came up with the idea) It's blogging for 30 days and I know it's gonna drive me nuts and be a ton of fun!!! By April 2nd, I will re-release "Facebook breaks up marriages.lol" I am in he middle of writing book 2, titled "Facebook can also make ya go to jail". I have a novel titled "Romancing Charlie" that I need to edit and post. That one is more of a drama/adventure with a little romance. Then there's my idea for a comedy series. I'll begin the series after "Facebook can also make ya go to jail". In between those, I'll probably pop up with some sort of a little too sexy and yet NOT erotica kind of stories. I get inspired easily and enjoy sharing.

    1. Thank you George!!! The title words play with a writer's creativeness. It's a comment which entices the question "What's that mean?" You can imagine of course, everyone has their own idea of what that means to them. Being an Indie Author is about being yourself while needing to work with others. This story is an example of just that. :-D
