Author Interview: Michelle Flick

Today I'm excited to have Michelle Flick, author of the recently released "The Owen Legacy: Revelations", stop by to allow me to pick her brain about her writing process, her thoughts about bloggers, and what she's working on next! 


From Goodreads: "When telepathic twins, Piper and Ryder Owens are dumped at Evermore Academy, they thought that the only thing they’d have to worry about was Piper staying out of trouble long enough for them to graduate. They will not, for any reason, be separated. But someone at Evermore knows about their secret and wants to separate them permanently.

But then Piper’s Achilles Heel shows up: a good looking guy. Victor Mira is everything Piper is supposed to avoid, yet she feels drawn to him in a way she never imagined. But Victor is hiding a dangerous secret too, and what he knows could be the one thing that could divide the sisters. Forever."


You're currently working on the second book in your debut series, do you find yourself having an easier time writing the second book or do you believe that you had an easier time with the first? 

I think when I was writing the first installment it was easier because nothing was set. I was free to write and create as it came to me. Writing the second one, I have felt "confined" at times because I have to stick to a lot of what I did in the first book. It's works, and it's great, it's just different.

How many books are planned for your THE OWENS LEGACY series? 

One more after this. The Owens Legacy: R-something. All I can say is: Poor Ryder.

What are some upcoming projects that you are working on? 

I have so many ideas pin balling around in my head. I have been making sure to write them down so someday I can and will get to them. But the one that is currently in the works is a dream walking novel. My lead protagonist Kate discovers that she actually can "walk" into other people's dreams and then I throw in some teenage drama and a murder or two an Wa Bam! I'm about half way through the first rough draft!

How did you come to the decision to self-publish? 

It's still my dream to be traditionally published. But when I finished The Owen Legacy: Revelations I pursued both tracks, was patient, and then was no longer patient and self-pubbed it!

Being a self-published author what impact (if any) have book bloggers had on your career? 

Book bloggers are IT in the self-published world. I only have so many friends and family that can or want to buy my book. Book bloggers a publicity and it's amazing how quickly "words" can spread.

Do you read reviews? If so, how do you respond to negative (or not-so-nice) reviews? 

I do read reviews. I stalk my reviews actually :). But when someone comments and it isn't stellar, I keep in mind that everyone has his/her own opinion and that my book is not for everyone. In the end, if someone posts or reviews about me, he/she is still helping me and I'm grateful!

Any advice for aspiring authors? 

KEEP AT IT! Keep writing. Keep networking. Click on those blog links that gives tips and tricks, if anything, you learn what you don't want to do, which is just as valuable as learning what you do want to do.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!

Though I appreciate awards I have decided to make my blog an "award-free zone". Unfortunately I do not have the time to hold up my end of award-giving. But again, I appreciate you thinking of me!
