AK Micheals – Then & Now Interview

avaIn June 2013, I first launched VampireForums and the Vampire Forums Facebook Page there was only a handful of authors that I interviewed/reviewed in the beginning with AK Michaels being one of them. Because of that I wanted to do a new interview that shows where she was then and where she is now. I have chosen AK Michaels for my Creative Mind Award. She is an amazing author and I hope that you enjoy the interview and the takeover that she is doing today during the event.

How many books had you released in 2013 and what have you released since then?
By the end of 2013 I had 8 books live. Now I have 22 with another new release set for the next couple of weeks, plus two boxsets. Wow, reading that back makes me realize how far I’ve come!

What one thing do you think has changed about the type of writer that you are over the last two years?
I’m a much better writer, I hope! I’ve learned with each and every story I’ve written and I’ve certainly grown in confidence lol.

If you could go back and give yourself a single piece of advice two years ago from present day what would it be and why?
Hmm, probably to get a good team around me sooner. I have a team now who I work with closely for my covers, images, swag and editing. They make everything so much better and easier for me.

What has been one major milestone in your writing career that you have reached that you would like to share with us?
My newest series, Highland Wolf Clan, has done immensely well and I am very proud of it.

Do you think that the services and advertising provided by me/VampireForums has benefited you at all over the last two years?
Of course! Vampire Forums is fabulous, as are you hon. You’re a wee star and you know I love you. xx

To date what is your favorite vampire book that you have written?
Oh gosh, that’s hard! It’s like making me choose between my babies lol. If I really had to choose then it would be The Witch, The Wolf and The Vampire. I absolutely love Josef!

Have you branched off into any other new genres that you was not writing in 2013?
I still write PNR but my newest series is strictly Wolves and Witches, no Vamps lol. BUT, I’m just about to start book 1 in a brand new series and there most certainly is gonna be a sexy, hot as sin, Vamp in that.

Do you have any new releases coming up and if so what are they and genre?
Yes, several! Books 4 and 5 in the Highland Wolf Clan series are almost ready for release and it won’t be too long until book 1 of my new series is ready.

Are you currently satisfied at where your writing career stands and do you feel as though you have grown as an author over the last two years?
I’ve definitely grown, learned, and enjoyed the past two years. I look back two years and realize just how much I’ve learned.

What is one free resource that all authors should take advantage of?
I think getting their books, images, teasers, out there in FB land and especially via VampireForums! There’s a whole load of book blogging sites that are also free, although a lot do charge for promo, there are still some that will do it for free.
