Q & A with Zenobia

How did you become a writer?

Since my first journal at the age of seven, writing has been and still is a comfort for me.

What are you hoping readers take from your book?

An exciting story with a little shock value and I hope it gets the readers to think about the consequences that come from negative or positive actions as my characters are relatable.

Are you an avid or occasional reader?

I am ususally an avid reader, however while I'm writing I focus 100% on my works to ensure I give the readers something to look forward to.

If you could interview one of your favorite authors, who would it be? Why?

Zora Neale Hurston. One of the first books I ever read in junior high school was "Sweat" by Zora Neale Hurston. Reading that book, gave me confidence in my own writing, I was also amazed at Ms. Hurston's ability to openly address domestic violence during the 1920's. It was unheard of and I was impressed.

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

Lost Ones: A Novel, the book moves like a movie and readers would be captured by the plot. I already have specific actors in mind to play certain roles.

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

My books are available online and on e-book, so I would say online service have worked in my favor. I was able to be listed on Amazon and Barnes & Noble online through my self-publishing package with Xlibris Publishing Company.

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

I have to say self-publishing since I have never been signed to a traditional publishing house. I love the freedom of releasing a book on my time and having control of my content.

What new projects are you working on?

I keep my options open but I can tell you there will be a "Lost Ones: Part 2."

Where can readers find you?
