I'm happy to have June Foster with us today. She's sharing what it's like to be an author who travels in an RV. Both of her books are available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, Kobo, Sony, etc.
Please check out Junes Author Page at Amazon and like it. You'll learn more about her there. Thanks. http://www.amazon.com/June-Foster/e/B007ISUMPK/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1344200980&sr=1-2-ent
Tell us about something that has just happened or is about to happen in your life that you would like to share.
Thank you for having me today, BJ. Though I'm not a sweet southern
belle like you, I am from Texas. I can
tell you what has just happened. I think you know that my home is on wheels. My
husband and I RV full time and I love it. However…... there are drawbacks. As you know, a writer depends heavily on the
internet. Though I have a Sprint air card, it doesn't always work everywhere.
We are in a tiny town in Colorado called Coaldale. When I found I wasn't picking up the internet
at all, I panicked and drove my poor husband crazy. Now I'm spending my days in
the RV office and using their wifi. The owner even gave me my own table, but
the trick is remembering everything I need from my RV. It's worth the hassle of
hauling my computer back and forth every day. My husband's doing the cooking.
What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it
up in 30 or less words, what would you say? A
Hometown Fourth of July is my latest. It is a story based loosely on the
real life situation of my husband's brother. The story charts a young adopted
man's journey to finding his identity, not in his birthmother but in the Lord.
Oops. A little over 30 words.
Tell the readers about your office and how you write best. Well, I
never thought I'd be telling you about my temporary office here in the RV park
headquarters. There are food items, souvenirs, cold drinks, and DVD's for sale.
And behind the counter, the owners have a computer, a phone, and a desk. Oh yeah. You meant my office in my RV.
(smile) My dear husband took the couch out and replaced it with a table and two
file cabinets on either side. The upside to this office is my view out my
window changes monthly. I write best with quiet which I don't get in the RV or
Do you have plans for a new book? Is this book part of a series? I'm
finishing up Book three in the Bellewood Series, Deliver Us. Give Us This Day
came out February 1, As We Forgive
will be released September 1 with Desert Breeze, and the final book comes out
April 1, 2013.
What books have influenced your writing? I think Plot and Structure by James Scott Bell
and Donald Maas's Writing the Breakout
Novel have helped me. Fay Lamb, the moderator of Scribes at ACFW, has
taught me so much and influenced my writing.
Is there an Author that you would really like to meet? Yes, I'd love
to meet Latayne Scott and Athol Dickson.
Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover? Since I don't have
much room in my RV, reading ebooks on my Kindle is a god-send.
What book are you currently reading and in what format
(ebook/paperback/hardcover)? I'm reading Dave Bond's A Time to Build published by Desert Breeze. It's in ebook format.
Do you have any advice for other writers? My advice is don't give up
and try not to take rejections and criticism personally. Those are a few things
I had to learn the hard way.
