Author Interview – Dawn Montgomery

Here is the interview that I did with Dawn Montgomery for the Howl With The Black Wolves Event.

How long have you been published?
I’ve been published for 8 years this month. Time has flown by!

What role do you play in the Black Hills Wolves?
I am an invited author to the series.

As you know the lovely Rebecca Royce is the sole reason why this event is taking place so if you had to describe her to new readers in 3 words what would they be?
Fun, creative, and awesome!

Finding the right targeted audience can be a difficult task so what do you find to be the biggest advantage with online marketing?
With online marketing, we spend a lot less time panicking about whether our clothes are right, our hair is perfect, our accent is too thick, etc. We can take the time to say what we mean, become friends with people who we might have passed on the street and never engaged with, and learn a lot about the world through the eyes of the people living in it. I think online marketing lets us open a world without borders. Reading is universal, and so is the love of romance.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming release of Wolf’s Return?
I can’t wait! Super excited. πŸ˜€

What is one thing that you want fans to know about the Black Hills Wolves?
It is a wonderful and amazing series with very talented authors. I’m honored to be a part of their group.

Of all the books that Rebecca Royce has written or cowritten with others which is your favorite and why?
Yes, CaptainΒ  was the first book I read of hers! I LOVED IT! It was a wonderful sci fi romance. I really loved her heroine, Lizbeth. After Yes, Captain, I picked up her wolf books and fell completely in love with her writing style.

Are you currently working on a new project that you would like to share with us?
I am working on several projects including a submission for the Black Hills Wolves series. It involves a military man who returns to the Pack in order to pick up the pieces of his life. He does a poor job of it until the sister of his late best friend shows up and knocks his world off balance in the best ways possible.

Are you self published or with a traditional publisher and what do you find to be the pros and cons of each?
I’m self-published and e-published with several companies. Being self published means you have complete control over your destiny (up to release day, anyway), but that also means you have COMPLETE control. There are no safety nets if you make mistakes. The beautiful part about being with epublishers involves their team mentality. It takes a group to build your book, but that leaves you with the focus of only writing the story (and the edits that follow). It’s nice to balance out my choices.

What was one of your New Year’s resolutions?
Write every day. Schedule days off and keep them. Buy myself something I need every month, even if it’s just a pen. LOL. Last year I completely neglected my computer even though I knew it needed an upgrade. The result was pretty brutal and cost me my PC for the last quarter of 2014. I’ve learned a lesson.
