Q & A with Tyora Moody

If you could make a movie out of one of your books, which one would it be?

Wow! That's hard to decide with only two published books. I would choose a movie based on the entire series. The Victory Gospel series would have to be a mini-series event. LOL!

Which marketing/promotions or publicity strategy has worked best in your favor?

I have been helping authors develop an online presence for over twelve years. I'm comfortable in the online world like coordinating the virtual book tour for When Memories Fade. I would say the virtual promotion has been the best strategy for me being a newer author with an existing platform. I also enjoy the offline events too. I especially like doing local events.

Which do you like better traditional or self-publishing? Why?

I started my publishing journey with a traditional publisher, but I will be self-publishing a novella series this summer. I like that a traditional publisher provides the editing and printing support. With self-publishing, I like being able to publish work that is a bit different and I solely own the rights.

What has been the most difficult thing that has happened to you on your journey to becoming a writer?

Learning to balance the time to write and market a book with running a business. After last year's debut novel, I have learned to delegate more to virtual assistants and cut back hours on newer projects. My goal consists of continuing to assist loyal clients with their platform and book marketing strategies.

What does it mean to you to be a published author?

It is a definite answer to vision and prayer. I just feel incredibly blessed.

Where do you see your writing and business career in 5 years?
I hope to have many more series and stand-alone books available to readers. With my business,

Tywebbin Creations, I want to continue to keep up with new trends in online marketing and continue to create quality products.

What new projects are you working on?

I have the first novellas in a series being released June 2013. Deep Fried Trouble is a cozy mystery that centers around Eugeena Patterson, a retired school teacher and grandmother turned amateur sleuth. It's a bit of a different read and very humorous compared to the Victory Gospel Series.

I'm also getting ready to write the third and final book in the Victory Gospel Series. I've been waiting years to write and look forward to developing the story behind Lenora Freeman , the First Lady of Victory Gospel Church.

Where can readers find you?
