Giveaway and Author Interview: A Killer Among Us

 
Welcome to Writing for Christ Lynette Eason, it is great to have you here! Do you have an interesting fact about yourself the average reader probably doesn’t know? 
I’m afraid I’m pretty uninteresting. LOL. I guess I would have to say that most people don’t know that I wear hearing aids. How’s that?

Do you have a favorite genre to read/write?
Well, of course I have to say Romantic Suspense, right? But I do love to read all kinds of things like Nicholas Sparks and John Grisham. I have discovered I’m not crazy about fantasy or sci-fi.

Do you have a nugget of writing advice that has completely changed how you view writing? 
Treat your writing as a business, not an art. And while I agree with this in part, I’m not a hundred percent. But treating it as a business helps me deal with the revisions and changes that have to be made per my editors. It doesn’t hurt so much if I’m not emotionally attached to the story.

What do you enjoy most about being a published author? 
The fame and glory and glamorous life I now get to lead. Yes, that was sarcasm. I suppose I enjoy being in the position of being able to help other aspiring writers. I love teaching at writing conferences and working with those who are in the position of where I was just a few years ago. It’s fun!

Places for readers to learn more about you?
I’m all over the place, but the main ones are:
Thank you for being with us today!
Thanks so much for having me!
