Thirty #Interviews in Thirty Days #Event- Day 5

Interview with RaeBeth McGee-Buda:

Q: What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time I do the stay at home mommy thing. I feel that time is so much more special now that I have experienced what I did in May. I try my hardest to make every moment count and make it one to remember.

Q: What do you like most about the genre you write in?
I write in Christian but there are several different sub genre I wrote in. I loved writing in both so far because I was able to write in personal experience. I tried to write in a way where the person reading the book could feel the way I was feeling at that time.

Q: Where is your favorite place to write?
I really don’t have a favorite place to write. Although I am working on a reading/writing nook in my living room. I will have all the author swag I’ve gathered from other authors displayed as well as all the books I’ve purchased from the authors. This will eventually be my writing area when it’s complete.

Q: What’s your next project?
I’m going to start working on a project I started a while ago, which is titled Forbidden Destiny. This one is a paranormal.

Q. What made you want to start writing?
I’ve always loved to write. I started by writing poems which I keep to myself. At first it was a healthy way of expressing how I was feeling. Then in high school we had an assignment to write a short story. One day while going through my old boxes, my sister came across Silenced and suggested I added on to it. Therefore for the next five years… I did.

Q. Who’s your main audience?
My main audience is young Christian adults & adults who like suspense.

Q. When it comes to writing- what are your strong points? What are your weaknesses?
My strong points for writing is coming up with the idea’s for new stories. Some times my ideas are based on events within my own life or those very close to me. I always ask permission before writing their stories. It seems like the lack of ideas for my books never happen. As for my weaknesses, I do too much at one time. I’m writing several different books, a stay at home mom that’s expecting her second baby, a wife, blogger who tries to help support other authors, and I try to make myself happy in the process of all of this. Therefore, as of lately… I haven’t had much time to write.

Q. What do you think of this term- Writer’s Block? How do you overcome it?
Writers block has happened to me. I overcame it by stepping away from the project until the characters were willing to work with me. Usually it’s for a few days but I’ve seen it happen and take several months to get back into.

Q. How many books have you written?
I have three completed and one in the works.

Q. How many are published?
Three books total.

Q. Are you self published or traditionally published?

I’m self published and wouldn’t change it for the word. I love having control of my works and being able to do what I want with them.

Q. What type of books do you enjoy reading?

I like all types of Fiction. Although I prefer reading paranormal.
Q: How do you feel about Dr. Pepper?

I drink it on an occasion but I’d prefer drinking Mt. Dew over Dr. Pepper. (Sorry, LOL)
