Author Interview with Tiffany Fulton - Idol Siren

Where were you born and where do you call home? 
I was born and raised in North Carolina for 17 years. I currently live in Louisiana, but my heart is permanently stamped in the Tar Heel State.

What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it up in 30 or less words, what would you say?
The name of my most recent book is La Demon Royale. I’d sum it up in 30 words or less in this way: It’s a short story about an antisocial demon princess who refuses to change.
Do you have plans for a new book?   Is this book part of a series?
Yes, I have plans for two new books that should be available at the end of February. They might be part of a series—then again, they might not be. I’m still working that out.
Is there an Author that you would really like to meet?
There are too many to pick just one, but if I had to pick one, it would be Kimberly Spencer, author of the Shimmer Trilogy. She’s indie, like me.
Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?
The only books I will buy in paperback are magazines  and graphic novels. Hardcover books will be purchased if they are rare. Indie published ebooks take up space in my Nook now.
Where do you prefer to buy your books?
Are you a self published (Indie) Author?
Yes I am.
What book would you like to read again?
Anything by Ann Matthews Martin, author of the The Babysitters’ Club series.
Is there a particular movie that you preferred over the book version?
Not that I can think of.
What book are you currently reading and in what format (ebook/paperback/hardcover)?
I just finished reading Lunar Light by Penelope Fletcher as an ebook on my Nook.
Are there any Authors that have grasped your interest recently and why?
Yes, the aforementioned Penelope Fletcher to start. I heard lots of good things about her books and I like the fact that she has a variety of paranormal creatures her stories. Zoe Winters is another writer I caught onto about two months ago—I heard about her through one of her podcasts with Joanna Penn of the Creative Zoe’s hilarious.

Do you buy a book by the cover?
No. I read the first paragraph…that’s my personal hook.
What are your thoughts on book trailers?
They are awesome if you can make them.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
If you want to go into one area of publishing, research them all—traditional, self-publishing, any exposure on the Internet is wonderful. “Write a lot and read a lot”, as Stephen King says, “There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of,”
Do you write under a pen name?
On Fiction, I do. That name is Sakura Reyna. I still publish there.
