May has been officially declared as the “Interviewing the Indies” month. As such, all month there will be posts containing interviews with indie authors. Today’s guest is Ginny Fleming, author of Keys of Illusion.
What do you have published?
Keys of Illusion is a romance and suspense novel. Hoping to find time for some scuba diving, Jerri Delaney – a young professional illusionist-magician – travels to Key West for a long anticipated gig. Instead she finds excitement, new friends, danger and the last thing on her mind… Love.
Self published under my “”MM”” imprint. Soon to be reprinted with Hydra Publishing — sequels to follow.
What are you currently working on?
I always have at least three projects going. Usually a screenplay I’m tweaking or a short story for Southern Indiana Writers Group’s anthology or a novel I hope to convert into a readable language. My usual style is comedy, though I’m very happy to disturb your sleep with my horror. My favorite form of writing is screenplay. Being optioned early on with a sitcom project by Lighthorse Productions (New York), my first love will always be screenwriting. For me – it just “flows”, making me a very, very happy writer.
My next novel to be published (soon) by Hydra Publishing is called Kindergeist and is a horror. With the aid of a satanic cult, a deeply troubled Florida teen murders his family, blaming it on a gang of marauding bikers. In the aftermath, the boy is delivered to his aunt in Indiana. Soon, the leader of the deadly cult comes to claim “The Chosen One” – the boy. But a short, angry Florida homicide detective won’t leave well enough alone.

What has been the most challenging aspect of being an indie author?
Selling myself. It is difficult to be a “Writer-Ho” without the official handbook. Oversight, I think. Surely, some other writer-ho has two copies.
As a writer, what is the one thing you cannot live without? Why?
Computer. I’ve lost the ability to manually write out almost anything other than a grocery list. Plus, I do my research while writing, spell-checking and lightly editing as I go.
You can purchase any of the Indie Adult Books from amazon. Stay tuned for more Interviewing the Indies, happening all May long!
