This is the second interview I have with the gorgeous author Raven H. Price -a Christfic Fantasy/Romance writer who inspires without preaching. I still remember my first one, a year ago. Actually, Raven H. Price was first guest author who accepted my invitation back then which made me extremely happy and very proud.
Raven H. Price, is a Christian fiction writer who uses romance mixed with fantasy and supernatural events to intrigue her readers. She also enjoys devoting her time inspiring and encouraging people to believe in themselves and trusting in a loving God.
She is happily married to her husband, Ralph W. Price, III, and they live in Leesburg, Georgia with a large dog and four cats. Since she is a cat lover, her Twitter handle is ‘roaringpurr.’ (@ ) Her Facebook author page @Roaringpurr, is devoted not only to her books but as an outlet to encourage love, respect, and acceptance for all mankind.
#1. Describe yourself as a person with a few words.
Loving wife, mother and grandmother who wants to inspire people through love and encouragement.
#2. Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?
#3. Does writing energize or exhaust you?
Both. Writer’s block throws me into tailspin. But once I have a plot I get invigorated again.
#4. What is the first book that made you cry?
Old Yeller, by Fred Gipson
#5. Have you ever gotten reader’s block?
Yes. I usually don’t want to read anything after editing my own books.
#6. Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?
My first book, The plan is a stand-alone. Then I have a trilogy called The Paradigm Shift Trilogy. Book 1 is Convicted, Book 2 is Convinced, and Book 3 is Commissioned.
#7. If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Spruce up on grammar.
#8. How do you select the names of your characters?
Short names appeal to me. I don’t like trying to spell weird long names over and over.
#9. What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
Editing. I hate it.
#10. What is the most unethical practice in the publishing industry?
I recently had to terminate my publishing contract with an agency and completely start over because they were withholding m royalties.
#11. Can you wish something to our readers?
Enjoy the written word. It is just as much fun and less expensive than traveling. Plus, depending on what you like to read you can ever let your mind travel galaxies.
Thank you so much, Mrs. Price!
