Authors Not-So-Anonymous Week #9

Welcome everyone to the ninth Authors Not-So-Anonymous weekly meeting!! This weekly series is about authors from Twitter and Facebook!  This week, I would like to introduce Angel A. Walker into Authors Not-So-Anonymous!

Photo from Angel's Facebook.
Angel A. Walker is an adult fiction Indie author.  Graduating from Mansfield University with a Communication degree, she began writing when she was only fifteen years old.  Right after watching the classic horror movie Scream, Angel wrote a screenplay, and that's when the addiction started.  "Ever since then I knew I wanted to write."  Throughout high school and college, Angel continued writing for the yearbook, newspaper and in creative writing class.

Her favorite author is Karin Slaughter with Agatha Christie in at a close second.  "My favorite novel of all time is Agatha Christie’s And then there were none.  I read it when I was younger and fell in love with murder mystery/suspense books."

"It sounds weird but when I was in high school I would get the worst grades on all the papers I would write.  Then when I got to college, I got A’s all the time.  So my confidence came back and I realized hell, you are a better writer than you thought.  So in a roundabout way my inspiration came from my failure.  And anytime I make someone laugh it inspires me to write more."

Angel is currently working on the Such is Life series.  The first novel, Such is Life is available on Smashwords in ebook format for all eReaders.

Description from Smashwords:
Melissa Jones has never had a problem with being single. That is until she receives an invite to her ten-year high school reunion, and then her ex’s wedding, both events falling on the same weekend. As Melissa debates whether to cancel or suck it up, her assistant, Brett Thomas, decides to step in to “assist” her. Melissa figures once her date problem is solved the weekend will run smoothly. Not exactly. Her family will stop at nothing to embarrass her, her exes will stop at nothing to try and win her back, and using Brett as her arm candy gets a little sticky when buried feelings are brought to the surface. By the end of the weekend Melissa will have to make decisions she always read about, but never experienced. She’ll dream of the day when being single was her only problem. (end)

I`m commenting but don`t enter my name for a free book, since I don`t do the e-reader thing. What a lovely interview, Angel! I really liked how you took failure and turned it into inspiration!

Way to go my friend!! Can`t wait to get your print version in my hands!

I, too, want the print version, so don't enter my name for the free ebook. I do have some questions for you about the ebook formatting and availability of your book, so that we might might maybe might be able to sell it through our website, too. :) At any rate, we are SUPER-excited to do your author event next month in our new location and to start selling your book!!! Great interview here! I'm glad the word is getting out on you and your writing; we've got big hopes for you! Cheers, Kasey, at From My Shelf Books & Gifts, www.wellsborobookstore.com
