Thank you for this interview, Victoria. Can you tell us briefly what your new book, Untraditional Love in the Dark, is about?

Why did you choose your particular genre?

I would like to try my hand at writing all types of genres.

Getting someone to edit correctly.

Are you published by a traditional house, small press or are you self-published?


Was it the right choice for you?


How are you promoting your book thus far?

Barnes & Noble,, Readers’ Favorite, Twitter, Linkedin, my own website, Rawsistaz, South Florida Writer’s Association, AALBC, book trailers, word-of-mouth, book fairs, mugs, tote bags, and blogs.

How is that going for you?

The progress is slow and steady.

Can you tell us one thing you have done that actually resulted in one or more sales?

Do not purchase a book promotion plan through a website that does not return emails.

What’s next for you?

Speaking at local Open Mic competitions, continue searching for an agent, and finishing my fourth novel.
