Here is the interview that I did with author Louisa Bacio for the Howl With The Black Wolves Event.
How long have you been published?
I sold my first short story to anthology in 2009, and my first book came out in 2010. Hard to imagine, I’ve passed five years now. Before that, I worked primarily in journalism writing non-fiction.
What role do you play in the Black Hills Wolves?
I’m thrilled to be part of this wonderful, creative group of women. I was invited to write a story in the Black Hills Wolves world, and am waiting to hear back on the submission.
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?
Master world builder.
Finding the right targeted audience can be a difficult task so what do you find to be the biggest advantage with online marketing?
My most popular paranormal series is The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf. Since that book deals with shifters, hopefully I’ll have some cross-over readers that’ll come to Black Hills Wolves.
What are your thoughts on the upcoming release of Wolf’s Return?
It’s been strange, different writing in a shared world, but not reading any of the books yet. I can’t wait to see the groundwork of some of these beginning tales. I’m sure it’ll help inspire some more.
What is one thing that you want fans to know about the Black Hills Wolves?
You’re going to HOWL! Get ready for some wicked wolves. Being behind the scenes within the creation has given me – and all the writers – insight into the storylines. The covers are absolutely amazing, and the content should be equal. I can’t wait to READ them myself.
Of all the books that Rebecca Royce has written or cowritten with others which is your favorite and why?
Impossible to say. Rebecca is so diverse and prolific!
Are you currently working on a new project that you would like to share with us?
Right now, I’m working on the third book in my Sex University series. It’s a ménage that’s been floating around in my head forever, and I can’t wait to share it.
Are you self-published or with a traditional publisher and what do you find to be the pros and cons of each?
Primarily, I’m published the traditional route. I just had my first novella in the self-published “Three Times Lucky.” Again, it’s a fun group of five of us. It’s fun to hear the almost-weekly counts on sales. For traditional publishers, I love working with the various editors. I learn and grow via every experience.
What was one of your New Year’s resolutions?
Finish the revision of a new shifter series, based upon feedback from my agent, and get it subbed!
