Author Interview – Heather Long

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

How long have you been published?  
For over six years.

What role do you play in the Black Hills Wolves?
I co-created with Rebecca Royce. We had a long conversation at a conference in 2013, by the time we’d finished, we’d mapped out the pack dynamics and the majority of the static characters within the pack. It’s been one of those awesome trips.

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?
Sweet. Dedicated. Friend.

Finding the right targeted audience can be a difficult task so what do you find to be the biggest advantage with online marketing? (Waiting for the answer for this one)

What are your thoughts on the upcoming release of Wolf’s Return?
I’m excited. We’ve been on this trip for two years, so I’m thrilled to see others join us finally!

What is one thing that you want fans to know about the Black Hills Wolves?
Every book is different, but you will see regular pack members and familiar faces. So far, I’ve loved every single one I’ve gotten to read.

Of all the books that Rebecca Royce has written or cowritten with others which is your favorite and why?
Hmm, I think the Rachel Clancy Warrior series. It’s YA but it’s how she and I became crit partners so I will always have a place in my heart for it.

Are you currently working on a new project that you would like to share with us?
I have several fantastic projects in the works and several new releases pending including What a Wolf Wants (1/16) the second book in the Black Hills Wolves, Under a Wolf Moon (Anthology) featuring an all new Wolves of Willow Bend tale, and much more. Be sure to check out my website and sign up for the newsletter so you don’t miss any new releases.

Are you self published or with a traditional publisher and what do you find to be the pros and cons of each?
I’m all of the above and I enjoy aspects of both. I like the control of self-publishing, and the benefit of working with multiple professionals at a publisher.

What was one of your New Year’s resolutions?
I actually don’t do resolutions at the new year. I do commitments to myself all year long.
