Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you had a wonderful visit with friends and family!
I think I took a month off from this, but it’s back now! Everyone give a warm welcome to Ana Prundaru!
1. What’s the title of your latest release? Link?
Meet me in Your Dreams. http://www.amazon.com/Meet-Me-In-Your-Dreams-ebook/dp/B00RC1R1N4
2. Why do you like writing in this genre?
Ever since I learned how to write, I enjoyed coming up with stories which were out of this world – often to my teachers’ frustration. For example, I was once tasked to write about a normal day in my life during second grade. Instead of narrating my daily schedule, I ended up writing about a made-up monkey-friend, who would teach me to fly and transform spinach into chocolate. I suppose I always loved adding a magical element in order to embellish everyday which were out of this world – often to my teachers’ frustration.
3. What do you like to read?
Currently I’m reading lots of poetry books, but my taste is eclectic, ranging from nonfiction to epic fantasy books. What matters to me is the quality of writing and its ability to broaden my horizon.
4. Favorite movie?
5. What are your writing habits? Music or silence? Daily regimen or spurts of creativity?
I set aside time periods during the week, when I work on current projects. I need total silence to work, otherwise my brain goes on a virtual vacation and I totally lose my train of thought. It’s a different story for editing though – I like editing texts to music – provided it is a calming, quiet music.
6. What was the most surreal moment you’ve had as a author?
When my first short story was accepted for publication. I was so grateful and needed some time to process the fact that someone enjoyed reading my piece.
7. How can readers find you?
My author page on Facebook is: https://www.facebook.com/anaprundaru.authorpage?ref=bookmarks
8. What do you know now about being published that you wish you’d known before submitting?
I used to picture publishers more like a faceless body and I realize now that I had much too high expectations as to response time and feed-back. But now I know that publishers are people too; they have obligations outside reading your manuscript and they might not be able to get back to you as fast as you’d like
9. Favorite snack/drink while writing?
I tend to drink lots of coffee and tea while I’m writing. No snacks or soda, because that didn’t end well with my last laptop.
10. Look at your writing area…what’s the item you keep to inspire you (piece of artwork, figurine)?
My Japanese wishing doll is always on top of my table, keeping me company as I write.
Thanks for stopping by, Ana! Best of luck with the book!
