Author Interview with Marie Morgan

I’m interviewing Marie Morgan today, the author of “Getting Lost”, the first book in “The Island” series, a series of erotica novellas. Thanks for answering my questions, Marie! My questions are bolded, responses are in regular font.

1) What’s the hardest part of being an author?

I’d have to say the hardest part of being an author is having the confidence that what you’re writing is something someone will enjoy. Writing is the easy part! Being an Indie author and doing all your own marketing adds a level of difficulty as well. If I could crank out my books to a publisher and let them handle everything beyond the writing, I’d be able to produce a ton of material. As it is, I have to have my hand in every facet of the creation process. But, I could say I’m thankful for all the great people on my team for teaching me so much about editing and the craft itself. Because of them, I’m becoming a better writer.

2) Can you give us a short synopsis of Getting Lost? 

Certainly! I tried to keep most of what’s between the pages a secret but here’s the book blurb:

Cicily Welling lost everything she cared about. On a dangerous path of self-destruction, she finds a website announcing The Island, saying how they can help those with “emotional problems.”

With much trepidation, she fills out the form and clicks submit, launching herself into a world she never knew existed. It all starts with him. He tells her she’ll heal and makes grand promises that she’ll never be a doormat again.

Now, getting lost is the only way she’ll be able to find herself. In this first book of The Island trilogy, Cicily finds out just how delicious getting lost can be.

3) Is this part of a series, or stand-alone? 

It’s slated to be a trilogy. I’m hoping I don’t get carried away and end up writing something akin to War and Peace. It’s fun to write!

4) How many hours per day do you spend writing?

However many I can work into my already mad schedule. Between writing and working a full-time job, I have few spare hours. But, I’ve decided I can sleep when I’m dead, and I try to pull at least four to six hours a day hitting the keys. That doesn’t always happen.

5) What is your favorite book in the same genre as yours?

My favorite book is the first one of Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty trilogy, The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty. It really hits all the things a good erotic novel should: sexual emotions, suffering and enjoying it, and a struggle with one’s own free will.

6) What are you working on now?

I have the last two books in The Island trilogy: Crossroads and Being Found. Beyond that, I’m not sure what I’ll write next. If I’m not laughed at or heckled, I may continue writing erotica that explores how sex intertwines with our human instincts and why we behave the way we do. I find human beings intriguing at the deepest level and yearn to explore that facet of our makeup. Helping others connect with their own inner-human is something I hope to achieve at some point.

I appreciate your willingness to have me here. I hope you have a chance to explore Getting Lost. Thank you for the space and time on your blog!
