We recently gave an interview on a website for book lovers, our first. We provided the material here for easy access.
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
Hello. We are Kim Atoms and Will Neese and we are average people living normal lives filled with routine work we endure in order to finance the hobbies we use to decompress. There are four books written in the Rochelle Faircrest series. The first book is lengthy and is given in six installments, per our beta test reader's suggestion. The complete Can You Keep A Secret book is 500 pages. Our reader said they were having issues, the action on the pages was too much stimulation to be exposed to in one sitting.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Will - An author / artist will only stop trying to perfect his work when he is removed from his mortal coil. Even then it will not be up to the high standards he imposes on self but the deadline has been reached.
Kim - Authors know they have a good story when they can not stand their characters. (Think about it for a few moments.)
What are you reading now?
Kim - Becoming - Michelle Obama
Will - You might be a redneck - Jeff Foxworthy (Do not judge. Everyone must decompress in their own way.)
Do you have any advice for new Authors?
Kim - Yes. Read articles and take classes on how to write books. Listen to family and friends with constructive suggestions. Most important, listen to yourself. After you have done your homework and background, you have the final say. Trust yourself. It is your story, you are hidden in the pages. Something else I have learned is you have the potential to be your own worst critic. Be kind to yourself. It is just a story, not your baby.
Will - If it feels like work, you are doing it wrong. Enjoyment must be there or the readers will pick up on the lack of passion.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Kim - Due to the type of book we write, many sites will not advertise or promote. It is a shame, having to do the leg work ourselves almost ensures we have no time to create more treasurers. That's why we created rochelle-keephersecret.com to promote our series and for other authors who want a place to showcase their books.
What authors or books have influenced you?
Kim - Stephen King is my all-time favorite his books made it hard to place my feet on the floor without wondering if I would feel boney fingers. Now, Rochelle makes staying in bed and okay prospect.
Will - My reading list did not come with well-known names. I checked out every book I could get my hands on to learn about the world as a whole.
What are you working on now?
Will - At the moment, we are fine-tuning the website, Facebook page and reaching out to be a part of fans lives. For a few months every year, we revisit Rochelle and proof the material. Every story needs tending to remain current, but for authors it will never be as perfect as we want it for our readers.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Kim - I wouldn't call my habit unusual, I make myself available for opportunities. I carry notepads with me when I go out for appointments. Or when I find myself in a waiting room, I use the wasted time to free write ideas and dialogue. During outings with family and friends, my phone's voice or memo are the discreet ways to capture thoughts and remain in the moment. And on rare occasions, I had to decipher shaky handwriting scribbled on scraps of paper I used while walking or riding in a rapidly moving vehicle. (always a joy to type afterwards.) I rarely sit down at a desk, staring at a computer to create. Inspiration is unpredictable and you have to be prepared, you cannot force the process.
Will - Outlines work for me.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The latest book is Designs of a Man and our inspiration is our wonderful test reader. We subjected him to an abundance of sensual situations over the years. We did not want to be cruel to his mind and body, so our thoughts leaned towards leaving the collection as a trilogy. We were unable to honor his suggestion to take out the humor in Forgetting Rochelle. (Bursting into unexpected laughter causes breathing issues if you were panting moments before.) As an apology, we asked him what character he wanted to know more about and he chose the man our main character chose, giving us our fourth gem.
What is your favorite book of all time?
We are nowhere near all time, so the book we love above all others could be found in our future. We reserve the right to stick a pin in the question until later.
What's next for you as a writer?
That will depend on the fans. If they like the characters and want a more in-depth look at the backstory or suggest new adventures, their voice may reignite a spark.
