Author Savannah Rayne
Editor: Hello there Savannah, we are so excited to have you here today on our very first Hellfire Publishing’s Table Talk Tuesday, editor to writer interview.
Savannah: Thanks Dawn, it’s a pleasure to be here!
Editor: You have a short story entitled Oh, Deer. What is that about?
Savannah: It’s about a couple who experience a rather unsettling, unnatural occurrence in their yard. Later Jacob Ellis hears the telling of an Indian legend. It appears that, the worlds between people and nature collide.
Editor: How did you come up with the title?
Savannah: It was a play on words really. Jacob calls Donna ‘dear’ in the story, so Oh, Deer seemed to fit J
Editor: How did you choose your genre?
Savannah: I didn’t, it chose me.
Editor: What inspired you to be a writer?
Savannah: Well, a good friend of mine **wink-wink** told me I had a natural talent for writing. So I thought I’d try it. You’re never too old to try something new! I found I LOVE it too!
Editor: With all that you do, can we look forward to another book by Savannah Rayne?
Savannah: I certainly hope so! I have several that I am working on at the moment in different genres.
Editor: Are you currently running any contests? What are they?
Savannah: In the very near future, I will be having one. I’m still ironing out all the details, so fan’s, be sure to keep watching for the announcement on my Blog or my Facebook page.
Editor: What are you wearing?
Savannah: My blue, capri jammies! I’m afraid you caught me a little early this morning Dawn! I’m still having my first cup of coffee, LOL Thank goodness, there’s not a spy-cam around!
Editor: What does your family think about all that you do?
Savannah: They think I’m crazy, LOL. Seriously though, they support me and encourage me all that they can. I’ve even had them make suggestions regarding subjects for upcoming books.
Editor: We have a special place for unpublished writers in our hearts, here at Hellfire Publishing. So what advice would you give to an unpublished writer?
Savannah: Don’t give up! If writing is what you want to do…DO IT! You should just remember that if writing makes you happy, you should keep doing it…FOR YOU. Whether you’re ever published or not shouldn’t be the reason, you do it. It’s not about making money selling books, it’s really about bringing something special to someone else. Even if the only people who read your written ramblings are family and friends, if you can make them smile, laugh, cry or sleep with the lights on, that’s what matters most.
Editor: Which other Hellfire novel would you recommend?
Savannah: I can honestly say I highly recommend them all! However, I do have a few personal faves, Knight of Swords by Sara Curran-Ross, The Unauthorized Autobiography of Ethan Jacobs by Dan Dillard and A Criminal Portrait by Robert Tangiers. Oh hell…can I just list them all? They’re really all so good J
Editor: What would you like to say to your fans?
Savannah: Thanks for welcoming me into your reading world!
Today I would just like to thank everyone who took a few minutes out of your busy day to check out my page. I’m hoping that if time allows, I can post several new blogs a week. That’s my plan anyway! And by the tab title “Hug or Nightmare” you may be surprised by what you find me blogging about that day. I hope you find some of my ramblings interesting, funny or at least maybe something you can relate to.
So stop back soon and see if I’m having a day worth hugging someone for or a nightmare I want to escape from…
Thanks again for stopping by!
