RW Hague interview
A little introduction:
When did your love of books begin?
When did you start to have the wish to become an author?
How have you found the process for becoming an author?
I’m not quite sure I understand this question. Do you mean, what is my writing process? Or how did I become an author?
As for the process of becoming a published author--well that’s been one heck of a journey. There are many pitfalls that an author can fall into, and I fell into every one! From vanity publishing to query trenches to bankrupt publishers, it’s been quite the ride. But nothing worth having is easy!
What would you say to those wanting to become an author?
Find a community of writers. And never try to publish something that has not been read by a critical eye.
Sharing your writing with someone else is daunting. What if they hate it? Tear it to shreds?
But here’s a scarier situation: what if I spend tons of money publishing a book and no one buys it?
Tell us about your book/books:
Katie is held captive on the farm in the middle of nowhere with fifty other kids, all victims of Midas’s kidnapping ring. Here they are forced to work as slaves under hellish conditions. Food is always scarce, exposure to the elements is guaranteed, and sickness kills the weak. Escape is a death sentence, but mere survival might mean losing everything else.
What do you love about the writing/reading community?
I am honestly more familiar with the writing community. I love all the quirks we seem to have. Finally, I have found a community that shares most of my neuroses!
For readers, I love the passion that they hold for these fictional characters. It’s fun to share the joy of people residing in your head with others!
If you could say anything to your readers what would it be?
Thank you for taking the time to read my work! We live in a busy world, and you could have walked right on by this story, but you decided to take it with you! I hope you find all the adventure and joy in reading these pages as I did writing them.
