Today I have Sherry Gammon, author of Unlovable, here to answer a few questions.

Why did you decide to self-publish Unlovable?

I tried to go the regular route.. agent…publisher… but no one would even read my novel. So I thought I would try Self-publishing. It has been great! I have no regrets.

Why did you decide to write a clean story?

There are many provocative novels out there for people to enjoy. I have nothing against them, it is just not my thing. Besides, I want a book my daughters and I could enjoy together.

I love the cover of Unlovable. Did you design it yourself?

The cover was design by a digital artist named Paul Beeley. I saw his work and asked him if he would make a cover for me. I told him what I wanted it to look like and he did it! He was great to work with too!

What kind of research did you do to write this book?

I had to look up the drugs in the story. Not being a drug addict, I didn’t know much about them and how they affect people;} In addition, I did not know a thing about guns!

What are your thoughts on ebooks? (i.e. love them, hate them, wave of the future)

LOVE ebooks. I think they are the wave of the future. We are an instant gratification people, ebooks are it. And they are convenient! I still do like having a real book in my hands, but ebooks are great!

Do you read reviews written about your book?

Yes. I want to learn from them so I can improve. I don’t mind a negative one either, but some people are just cruel! A cruel review helps no one and makes the reviewer look small and shallow. Thankfully, I have had only one really nasty review! Maybe she was having a bad hair day when she read it;}}}

Do you keep track or write reviews for books you read?

Yes. If I want reviews, I feel I should do the same for others. Plus it helps me to learn and grow. The very best way for an author to improve is to read her/his peer’s work. It helps keep you fresh! If I really hated the book, I will not submit the review. Who knows, maybe I was having a bad hair day when I read it;}}}

Thanks for doing the interview and the giveaway! I appreciate it more than words can say!

Thanks so much for being here.
