The Great Tamalyn E Scott

Hello friends,

I was privileged to interview another author, recently.  Her books are quite adventurous and clever.  I hope that you will take a look and, as her website states, Get Lost In the Journey.  It will be magical!  In the meantime, check out my interview with the amazing Tamalyn E Scott:

 

  1. Tell me a bit about one of your favorites that you wrote. 

As a writer, every story is my favorite. They are all my babies! But having to choose, I believe, ‘Rebecca’, is my favorite. My books are Post Dystopian, after the horrors of the dystopian era and in the twenty-sixth century where no technologies are allowed. They live as they once did as the knights and lords in the days of old. I also love the humor in this book. I love writing my male characters personalities and if I’m asked, “Is the character based on you?” I would have to say no, but the humor is defiantly me.

Rebecca:

~The storm took more than Rebecca’s husband. It ruined most everything she had. Rebecca was grateful that her horse, Fella, and dog, Jack was spared. Somehow, she found the strength to load the wagon and head for her mothers. But how was she going to honor Roberts’s last request? Numbly, she traveled the long dusty road when the sound of thunder cracked through the air bringing startling her and brought two enormous men on horses in a cloud of dust. Rebecca realized just how alone she was…Through Rebecca’s eyes, you will see, feel and experience her journey of finding out that what you believe isn’t always true and things aren’t always what they seem.~

2. Writing is a difficult endeavor. What makes you continue to write?

My readers. They love the way I write and complain because they stayed up all night, having to be to work in an hour. Or how husbands want dinner…can you imagine that? But when someone says, “I haven’t been able to sleep peacefully for months, but your books take my mind off of things and I sleep so well.” This person lost her husband and a sister in a short time. That makes me want to write even more.

3. What do you look forward to every day?

I look forward to continuing that movie playing in my head. Sometimes I write until the movie stops. I once wrote 18 hours! But yes, I do see a movie playing in my head!

4. How do you define success?

Success to me is having readers love my novels and asking when the next one will be released. But reaching my goals and have readers ask for more, well, that is a success to me.

What makes you successful?

It still blows my mind when someone asks, “Are you, Tamalyn Scott? I’ve seen your books on Amazon!” or when someone says, “I have read all your books! I hope there is another one coming!” “Your books should be movies!” Once I was told by a man studying to be an English Lit, teacher and he read my novel and he felt empowered! Or a woman feels like there is hope in finding love, I feel that is a success. I take everyday problems and write them into a world where there is hope, honor, trust, integrity, and love. Real love or how love should be.

5. Any tips for a newbie writer?

If you love to write, do it! If you have a story to tell, tell it! Don’t let anyone tell you, you’re not going to make a living writing novels. You might not, but if you love to write, then do it. Another thing you must do is make sure you get a good editor! You’ll probably write and rewrite, but it will only make it better! I turn off all the bells and whistles when I write or, being OCD as I am, I’d want to correct everything and the movie would stop. That’s a secret I personally use. After a couple of chapters, I would go back and proof the storyline. I also keep a list of towns and people. That helps with keeping your story consistent. But mostly, believe in yourself and have fun!

Thank you so much, Tamalyn.

    I love reading Tamalyn’s books. Her discriptive genius takes you right there to wherever her characters are. All of her books would make excellent movies!!!
