Author Leah Hamrick

Today, Write and Author interviews author Leah Hamrick.
Leah Hamrick lives in Michigan with her partner in crime husband Jon, young daughter Khloey, and plethora of reptiles, fish, and a tree frog named Sticky. She can always be found with her nose in a YA book, daydreaming and thinking up new ideas for a story, and trying to figure out how to make a characters chemistry clash with one another’s. She is a fan of romance, and anything paranormal. She gets the inspiration for her stories from things that have happened in her real life—except the paranormal/fantasy aspect… She wishes she were that awesome! She enjoys listening to heavy metal music, traveling, watching bad reality TV, and everything pink. She hopes that one day she can be become a well known author, and to keep writing stories for everyone to enjoy for years to come.
Leah Profile

Do you read a lot and if so, what is your favorite author?
My favorite author is Jennifer Armentrout… and yes, I love to read.
How do you balance writing and everyday demands like raising children, housework, and other’s needs?
I sometimes have problems with this… every time I go to write, either my daughter, husband, or something else needs my attention. I usually write at the weirdest times just to get things done.
How do you market yourself and your book?
I use Twitter. I make teasers and trailers myself. I also use Book Linker, so I can track how many people click on my books link.
What part of your writing time do you devote to marketing your book?
I generally do it everyday. As soon as I see my sales dropping, I’ll make a new teaser and post on Twitter… usually helps.
Why do you write?
I write because sometimes, a story just needs to be told.
How often do you write and what is your process?
I usually try to write everyday, but lately that hasn’t happened, so I have to figure out how to pace myself and make time for my number one passion.
What writing advice can you give?
Edit. Edit. Edit.
I can’t tell you how many times a publisher or an agent turned me away because of editing! It is more important than you think!
Can you create a short writing prompt?
She loves hotter than the fire that comes from her body…
