Avery Aster

Bio: New York Times bestselling author Avery Aster pens The Manhattanites, a contemporary erotic romance series of full-length, stand-alone novels, and the naughty new adult prequel companion series The Undergrad Years.

1. What got you into writing / what made you sit down and actually start something? I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. It just comes natural to me.

2. What is a usual writing day like for you, how is it structured? 8 to 10 hours at the laptop, typing away.

3. Do you get writers block? If so, how do you overcome it? No. Never. *Knock on wood*

4. Are you a plotter or panster when it comes to writing a story? Both.

5. Are you traditionally or self-published, and what was the publishing process like for you? Any advice to aspiring authors? I was traditionally published but am happily an indie author now and loving it!

6. What has been your highlight since becoming a published author? Hitting the New York Times bestsellers list was a ton of fun.

7. Can you share a little of your most recent book with us? And any other books of yours, if you wish. Sure, I just finished a m/m erotic romance titled XO, Blake. It’s the third in a naughty new adult series.

8. What audience is your book targeted for, and what genre does it come under? My readers are anyone who want to laugh and enjoy a happy ending. I write in the genres of Erotic Romance, New Adult, Contemporary Romance and Chick-Lit.

9. Apart from writing, what do you do in your spare time? Read!

10. What tip would you give to new authors when trying to build a fan-base / get followers and market their books? (What to do and what not to do.) Stay away from marketing to other writers. I avoid questions about writing. I find it sorta gross when I’m a writer’s conference and an author is ‘selling’ me their books. Etc. I suggest focusing on your characters, telling a great story, and letting the readers find y-o-u.

11. How long on average does it take you to write a book? 3 months for the first draft.
