Author Interview 📚 Bryce David Salazar
Hello, Friends. I’m so pleased to be able to bring you another author interview with another incredible author, Bryce David Salazar. I keep hitting the jackpot with incredible authors agreeing to let me interview them! Woot woot!
Bryce David Salazar is the author of SHE SEES METAPHORS and TALES OF TIMELESS SPRINGS which is at the very top of my to-read list. I can’t wait to dive into it!
So let’s get started with the interview, shall we?
Omg! I have to stop for a moment and say… what an awesome author photo! Love it! I can already tell this is going to be a fun interview.
Q: What is your favorite thing about writing?
A: It’s fun. I dig letting my imagination go wild as I tell stories that I myself find fun and entertaining.
Q: What is the most difficult part of the novel writing process for you?
A: Just about everything after page three.
Q: What inspired you to write Tales of Timeless Springs?
A: Over the course of several years I had slowly put together a bunch of random scribbles about this weird city and its cast of characters. Not long after my first novel, She Sees Metaphors, was finished, I had enough material to make another book. So I rolled with it.
Q: How long did it take you to write Tales of Timeless Springs?
A: When I seriously began working on it, about a year. But I had been jotting down notes and stories for about four years prior to that.
Q: Do you plot out your stories, fly by the seat of your pants, or some combination of the two?
A: I usually have a beginning and an end in mind. Everything in between sort of happens by the seat of my pants.
Q: How do you select the names for your characters?
A: I’m a big fan of checking baby name websites.
Q: Are you working on anything new?
Q: Do you prefer to write in the morning, afternoon, night, or whenever you find a spare moment?
A: In the morning, but the day job doesn’t give me permission to do that. Not unless I wake up around 4:00 in the morning, which is a level of crazy I’m not willing to stoop to.
Q: Do you have any writing rituals?
A: Set a glass of something to drink next to me and ignore it.
Q: What do you think makes a good story?
A: Heart, I guess. The idea of a “good story” is subjective. If it has heart though, it can reach someone.
Q: Dogs or Cats?
A: Both. Always both.
Q: Savory or Sweet?
Q: Beach or Forest?
A: Forest, so long as I’m looking at it from inside. Where it’s clean.
Q: When you’re not writing, what do you like to do with your free time?
A: Video games.
Q: How can readers keep in touch with you? Do you have a website? Are you on social media?
Q: Do you like to hear from your readers?
A: Yes. It’s heartwarming, humbling, and pretty freaking cool.
Q: Is there anything else you’d like people to know about you?
A: I don’t like cheese and I make no apologies for it.
Thank you, Bryce!
