Interview: Veronica Frances

Today I have Veronica Frances on the blog! Here's her wonderful interview!

1) Tell us about yourself! When did you start writing? Why? Who inspired you?

I always loved to write, but I never thought I would actually publish stuff until I was in my early twenties.
I started writing poems at age ten. As a teenager, I wrote erotic short stories about many of the boys I had crushes on. I always have had a wild imagination and writing was my way of letting my wild imagination loose.
I was inspired by music, crushes, movies, fantasies, soap operas and anything that triggered my imagination. I was always very inspired by emotional ups and downs and my best poems and short stories came out of those times.
I was inspired by certain singer-songwriters like Buffy Sainte-Marie, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Billy Joel and Carly Simon. I did end up writing songs, as well as fiction, poems and non-fiction.
2) What is your newest release (Or upcoming)? Tell us a little bit about it.

Let’s Talk About Tickling is my newest release.

Let’s Talk About Tickling talks about the many different aspects of tickling. It deals with the psychological, the physical and the emotional aspects of the tickling fetish, as well as giving tons of useful advice about how to bring more sensuality and laughter into your relationships and your life in general.

It is not simply a book about tickling. It is a book about discovering your true sensual self and sharing that information with your partner. It emphasizes the importance of communicating your fantasies and desires, so that your relationship does not become stale. While tickling is the main fetish my book deals with, it also discusses other related fetishes and many other informative tips on keeping your sensual self alive, as well as your personal relationships.

3) What is your favorite part about being an author?

Actually writing the book is my favorite part of being an author. It is like being in a warm swimming pool.

4) What is your least favorite part about being an author?

Having to get out of that warm swimming pool of creativity and facing the competitive world of online marketing and social media.

5) Are you an Indie Author, Hybrid, or Traditional? What lead you to this choice?

So far, I have definitely not followed the traditional route, but I am open to going with a traditional publisher, providing I get a really good deal. I think it would depend on the book and what works best at the time.

6) Do you have any other hobbies or passions?

I love listening to music, adding to my already huge iTunes library of over 50,000 songs. I enjoy walking around Manhattan, street fairs, movies, backgammon, museums, fine dining, computers and technology, and I love dogs, particularly German Shepherds.

I’m also a singer-songwriter and poet, as well as a clairvoyant and clairaudient.

Laughter is a big passion of mine. I like to find ways to bring more laughter into my life for healing purposes and for pure enjoyment. Of course, tickling is a passion of mine as well.

7) Do you work on a schedule? Are you better working under pressure?

No, I do not work under any particular schedule. The only pressure I ever feel is my own and sometimes it does help me to get a project finished.

8) Where do you see yourself in five years as an author?

I see myself doing a lot of public speaking, which I already have previous experience with. I also see my fictional work being made into films.

9) What’s one fun fact about your book people should know?

Tickling is the gateway to sex.

10) If you could choose any of the ‘realities’ you write to live in, which world would you choose?

I would choose to live in Tickle Wonderland, which is a fantasy place from my last book, Tickling Daphne H.
