BEGIN POST:

Q: What is the one common phrase that the people who know you best often say about you?

A: This is easy, because I hear these all the time, and actually there are two; the first one is what my childhood or school friends often say when they see me again after many years: 1) (regarding my attitude and manner) “You are still the same, you haven’t changed one bit,” and 2) “She doesn’t sugarcoat anything. You will always know where you stand with her, because good or bad, she will tell you.”

Q: You seem to be a very passionate person. What are you most passionate about?

A: My passion lies in everything having to do with children. How they are being raised, how they are being taught, how they are being loved.

Q: Here is a very basic question, but one I’m sure some might want to know about you…what is your most favorite color?

A: Peridot (green)

Q: You have authored 4 books, which is your favorite?

A: Honestly, I love all my books or I wouldn’t have introduced them to the public, but my most favorite one goes back to my passion, so we’ll have to say it’s my 1st book: “THE GOOD MOMMIES’ GUIDE TO RAISING (ALMOST) PERFECT DAUGHTERS: 100 TIPS ON RAISING DAUGHTERS EVERYONE CAN’T HELP BUT LOVE!”

Q: As you look over the landscape of the writing and publishing world, what are the most concerning trends that you see? What are the most encouraging?

A: Joy, this is a great question! The most concerning trend I see right now is that Amazon has given EVERYONE the ability to publish anything, and that has opened the flood gates for much “trash.” The problem with this is, Indie authors have it tough already, but when we are judged by those who don’t care what they put out, then it lends credibility to what is being said about us from the traditional publishing world. Now, the most encouraging thing is that authors, who, like myself, may not have been able to publish had it not been for this avenue which was opened, we now have the ability to counter, and put out great works for the public to read. So, I guess it’s what they call a double edged sword, right? We have to take the good along with the bad, in this case. Hopefully, more of these authors who are putting out writing which isn’t worth reading, will begin to realize the importance of continually working hard to fine tune their craft.

  1. I’m catching up as fast as I can. Nice interview Nonnie and Joy although I agree that even after this long book tour we still will only know half of who Nonnie is–reminds me of her book cover with the split between faces. Amazon makes enough money with their lending library and 99 cent sales, which is actually helped by taking on all the wannabe writers. It seriously hurts writers who work at their craft. We aren’t competing with good writers, rather outrageous numbers. Catch you at the next stop, Nonnie–getting tired yet?

  2. I’m late in popping in but wanted to say I enjoyed the interview. Nonnie, you made some awesome points about indie publishing being a double-edged sword. Fortunately there is a strong author/writer network that is available for all of us to continually hone our craft. I’m of the opinion we (as authors) never stop learning!

  3. Wonderful interview, Joy! Nonnie, I agree with you about Amazon (I also cringe at some of the books that are getting 4-5 stars). The whole system seems out of kilter somehow. Perhaps Amazon needs to act more like a discerning publisher, after all, they have a stake in sales. Thanks to both of you!

  4. Nonnie, We can’t do anything about Amazon, but we can strive for excellence in what we introduce to the market. And…we can take honest reviews, evaluate them, and make corrections to our work in order to bring it closer to your standard–perfection.
    I’m loving your tour!

  5. Nonnie, your concern about what Amazon has unleashed is right on the mark. Anybody can publish a book. I have never been impressed with the way they process especially if you are depending on them to do it all – from format to finish. But as you say there is always a positive side to everything and this is no exception.

    Thank you Joy for being such a supportive host.

  6. Nothing piques the interest of readers like a good interview of a celebrity. Within our world of Indie authors, Nonnie Jules is truly a celebrity, so this tour will be a delight to follow! Thanks for hosting Nonnie today, Joy!
