Author Interview – Arthur J. Gonzalez @arthurjgonzalez

Do you intend to make writing a career? I sure hope so!

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? Oh yea. Its not that I go blank completely, it’s that sometimes I go nuts because I don’t think a certain idea is good enough. Usually, I go running outside and my mind becomes fluid and ideas come easily to me.

Can you tell us about your main character? Gavin is a character consumed by guilt and self-hate. But at the core of him is a naturally nurturing person who only wants to be a part of something.

Will you write others in this same genre? Yeap. I’m writing three separate YA series as we speak.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Never give up. Never ease your hope. At some point, we ALL find our way.

What contributes to making a writer successful? I think a successful writer needs to know their audience and connect with their readers. On a technical side, a writer should feel confident about their work, but also be flexible and open to suggestions.

Do you have any advice for writers? Don’t stop. Keep writing. Your debut novel likely won’t be a hit, but your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th may very well be. Just keep drilling on and learn all you can along the way.

If you could leave your readers with one bit of wisdom, what would you want it to be? Love who you are. Love others for who they are, not what you feel they should be.
