Author Interview – Julie Farley

What are your current writing projects now? I am working on the sequel to Tripped Up Love.  It’s titled The New Ever After. I am also finishing up a book about a magician and a mapmaker that I started two and a half years ago.

Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why? Last summer I read a book by Jessica Park.  I was fascinated by it because it seemed so different than anything I have ever read.  Her book opened me up to a world of books I didn’t know existed.  I found so many self published books that I devoured.  I stayed up till one and two in the morning each night reading another book.  I really didn’t know books existed outside of Barnes and Noble until last summer.  Figuring that out changed my life.

What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? I love Scrivener.  It helps me organize my thoughts and move them around when necessary. I cannot imagine writing a book without using Scrivener.  It’s a powerful writing tool. But I also love the little yellow notepad on my phone and iPad.  I jot down ideas on it all the time.

What contributes to making a writer successful? You need to have a great support team. You need to have people to run ideas by and people to help you with your other responsibilities (like your kids!) when necessary.  I am so fortunate to be surrounded by people who support me and want me to succeed.  I can’t imagine writing without them.

What do you do to unwind and relax? To unwind, I love to go for a run or a walk down to the river with my dog. To relax, I love to have a beer with friends or my husband.
