Another treat! This just in from fellow eTreasures http://www.etreasurespublishing.com/ author Cher Green. I’ve actually known her quite a while since I first signed my contract with eTp because she does her question and answer posts on her blog where I’m a regular interviewee. I’m sure you’ve noticed the links on my posts when I get a shout out from her on her blog. The last one was “Can creativity be taught?” Check it out.
I honestly don’t know why the links are so long.
So grab your coffee and read. It’s a short one and easy for this beautiful spring weather. Can you believe I had a piece of Turtle Pie this morning for breakfast? One of these days I’m going to eat better.
This is part of my series on promoting my publishing house http://www.etreasurespublishing.com/ with interviews of our authors and editors. Please enjoy.
Cher? What genre do you normally write?
Dark fiction is my main genre, but my writings range from romance to horror with a touch of paranormal. I shall soon venture into the world of children picture books with my story, The Sacrifice. This short story, in fairy tale form, was picked up last year by eTreasures Publishing for their new children section. Release date has not yet been revealed.
What got you interested in writing, and what inspired you to write your first book?
Reading is what got me interested in writing. I found escape within the pages of books by great writers and knew one day I wanted to provide the same for others. My first book, which sits in my closet waiting to be resurrected, began when I woke up and discovered time was passing by. It was time to do what I’d always wanted to do – become an author.
Who has influenced your writing and how?
Stephen King has been a major role in my writing and writing goals. His stories and characters draw you in and don’t let go until the end. His book, On Writing, is a great source to fall back upon when losing faith.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Reading would be the most obvious answer, but I also explore spiritual matters. Tarot cards offer a great tool for spiritual development and personal issues. I share my insights, readings, and other related issues at my blog: www.tarotbycher.blogspot.com.
Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers?
Don’t give up on your writing because it gets rejected, keep submitting, and keep writing. The journey is long, but with enough work you will open the right door
Where can people learn more about you and your work?
Bio: Cher Green, born in Tennessee, lives in South Carolina with her significant other and her two feline companions.

How are you liking my series on my fellow authors in my publishing house? Later this summer there will be more from children’s authors and others from fantasy to romance. One author does all three! I think you will be surprised with the diversity here. And remember, I was the only children’s book for a while All have since been added as new releases.
Here are the blurbs.
Escape to Love – Constance Spenser is no ordinary woman and neither are her problems.

one doesn’t walk away from the council alive. When a witch falls

have to be sacrificed for the other to live?
