They have more to lose in being silent and immobile than in potentially annoying their publisher.

If I can impress anything upon you, it is this: Take matters of PR and marketing into your own hands. Few people are solely writers — most writers also must promote and market their work, or hire others to assist. Interview With Author Meredith Bond. What type of books do you write? I write Regency-set paranormal romance.

What is your newest book about? The first, Storm on the Horizon, is a novella which is the prequel to Magic in the Storm, a novel I put out last year.
I love to know what makes a villain tick. What makes them who they are, and why do they do the evil things they do — and Tatiana is definitely a very cruel person. She tries to kill her son immediately after his birth. So, Storm on the Horizon is the story of how Tatiana met the man she later marries and with whom she has seven children, including the hero of Magic in the Storm and fell in love.
An Exotic Heir originally title Love of My Life is the story of a young woman who is demeaned by a man she thinks is going to ask her to marry him. She runs to her parents in Calcutta, India where she meets Julian Ritchie, an Anglo-Indian who is looked down upon by the English society there because of his mixed blood.
What inspired you to write it? As I mentioned earlier, for Storm on the Horizon, I love to know how villains become so mean and nasty.

I had to explore what Tatiana was like as a young woman. I really think readers come away from reading her story with a good understanding of who she is, so that when you read Magic in the Storm, you know why she does what she does. The British had a love-hate relationship with the Indians there. This story reflects a period when the balance tilted closer to hate, and that, naturally, affected those who were products of the time when it tilted the other way. And revenge can be so much fun.
What is the writing process like for you? I am a plotter. I plot out my stories in detail before I write them. I do endless worksheets on my characters trying to get to know them before I begin to write their stories. And after I do days, sometimes weeks of work on my stories I usually still have to restart my book at least three or four times before I get it right.
