Get to Know Author Aris Whittier


Let's give a warm welcome to Aris Whittier. Please check out her website, and let me know what you think of it when you are done.


1. Please tell readers about your current book.
Across Eternity is a beautiful love story that tells of love that transcends time. It will pull at your heart. It is set in the small coastal city of Dana Point, in Southern California.

2. Who or what inspires your writing?
My inspiration comes from my love of life, my imagination, and the fact that I absolutely love to write about the male / female relationship.

3. When did you know you would be a writer?
I never aspired to be a writer. However, I've always loved to read and write. Growing up, I would read anything from Readers Digest to Stephen King. When I was younger, I used to love to tell stories…my mom called them lies…but I considered it creative story telling… LOL. When I was 16 I pick up my first romance book and I fell in love with the genre. When I was in college I wrote my first romance novel and it was then that I knew I wanted to be a writer

4. How long did it take you to write your first novel?
Almost one year. It was 78,000 words.

5. What is the hardest part of writing for you?
I write in spurts and that is very frustrating. Sometimes I'll write thirty pages in a day and other times I can barely get a paragraph written.

6. Do you have any writing rituals?
Not really--though I love to have a cup of coffee by my side when I'm writing.

7. Have you written any thing else?
Yes! I have two other romance novels out. Fatal Embrace and Foolish Notions. I have also written a humorous compilation called, The Truth About Being A Bass Fisherman's Wife. I have another romantic suspense, Secrets, which I'm just finishing up.

8. Any advice to aspiring writers?
My advice is to never give up. And write about what you love. Oh, and develop a very thick skin because you're going to need it. Everything will be judged and nitpicked--your writing, your plot, your characters, your query, your book cover…get used to it. Some of the criticism will be worthy and some of it not. You'll know what to take in and what to just let roll off.

9. Who is your favorite Author?
Hands down Judith McNaught.

10. What is your favorite book?
Once and Always by Judith McNaught.

11. What are you currently reading?
My mom just sent me, Echoes of the Soul: The Souls Journey Beyond the Light through Life, Death, and Life After Death, by Echo Bodine. I'm only on the first chapter but it is very interesting so far.

12. How do readers find out more about you?

Synopsis:
Born a genius; education, wealth, and prestige came easy to Logan Richards. Actually, there wasn’t much that Logan couldn’t learn or acquire. However, he knew there was more to life than money and power. Logan was determined to find the woman who he'd dreamed of his entire life and know what it was like to love her before he died.
Amber Lewis, a waitress for a five-star restaurant in, Dana Point, California, was overworked, stressed, and wary of life since her sister, Heather, had passed away. Then, one evening while working she fell hopelessly in love with Logan Richards, a chivalrous man who felt deeply familiar.
For Amber, it was the beginning of a voyage of self-discovery and renewal. For Logan, it was the completion of life. For each of them it was the deepest sort of love.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
