Author Interview with Katherine E. Soto

  1. What is the first book that made you cry?
    1. The first book to ever make me cry was probably Charlotte’s Web. Why Charlotte, whyyy?
  2. What is your writing Kryptonite?
    1. Outlines. I’m a pantser, so I don’t plan things out beforehand which makes editing and writing a bit slower. No matter how many classes I take on it, my process just won’t include an outline.
  3. Who is one author are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?
    1. I’m very close to G.S. Carr who is a wonderful Historical Romance writer with several pennames. She’s always great for a huge dose of motivation and inspiration and she’s also a hybrid, traditional published and indie published author which I find incredibly cool.
  1. If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
    1. I would tell my younger self that one book won’t launch my career. It takes years of honing your craft and millions of words and consistency to get where I want to be. Also, not to compare myself to others.
  2. How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?
    1. It might sound silly and obvious but that book changed everything because after I wrote it, I knew I could write a book. Before that I was kind of testing it out to see if I could. I learned a ton about publishing that helped me launch my next book better and I learned to start writing the next book as soon as I finish writing one instead of waiting until after a book launch.
  3. What was the best money you ever spent as a writer? If you have not made any money, dream about it?
    1. The best money I’ve ever spent as a self-published author is probably the Vellum program for formatting. Formatting by yourself is ideal because you’ll always need to go back in and make changes, or update the back matter. I also think saving up for your ideal book cover is important too. You spend so many hours pouring your soul into writing the book, you deserve the cover of your dreams. That’s the fun part.
  4. As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?
    1. A frog—with wings if I’m allowed to enchant it. I’ve always loved frogs for some reason.
  5. How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?
    1. Oh boy. Uhm. At least 10 half-finished ones, several fully finished ones that I scrapped, and a few that I’m shopping with publishers. I think only one unpublished one, eight published, four boxsets, and seven shorts.
  6. Have you read anything that made you think differently about fiction?
    1. Every single thing I read changes how I think about fiction. Everyone has such a wildly different yet enthralling way of storytelling. I try to study the books I read and apply what I learn to my own writing.
  7. How do you select the names of your characters?
    1. I’m the worst at this. I spend hours on those baby name websites and usually change a name several times before the draft hits the shelf.
  8. What is your favorite childhood book?
    1. The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodle by Julie Andrews. I loved that book around 4th grade. Also The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster.

My first kiss nearly killed me—literally
