AUTHOR INTERVIEW with Tish Thawer!

Today I have the lovely and talented Tish Thawer stopping by for an interview on her Scent of a White Rose tour! Be sure to also read the amazing 5 star review I gave her excellent book as well.

1) Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Absolutely! My official bio reads: I’m Tish Thawer and am currently working on The Rose Trilogy. A paranormal romance featuring a young woman named Rose, and Christian, the vampire who loves her. 

Before becoming a writer I worked as a computer consultant, a photographer and a graphic designer. I also operate a custom glass etching business, in addition to being a wife and mother of 3 wonderful children. 

I've been a fan of the paranormal for as long as I can remember. Anything to do with superpowers, myth and magic has always held a special place in my heart. From my first paranormal cartoon, Isis, to the phenomenon that is Twilight, this genre has always been a part of my life.
My unofficial bio is: I'm boring. I'm a complete a hermit. I love to stay home to read and write. I love watching movies and playing games with my family. I love doing landscape photography and taking road trips. My favorite food are mushrooms–I could eat them on almost anything. I'm a whip cream addict–can't drink my coffee or hot cocoa without it. I will only own arctic type dogs. I love all things fantasy and magical and have a thing for Ian Somerhalder. :p
2) Please tell us about your work?
The brief summary: The Rose Trilogy is a paranormal romance featuring a young woman named Rose, and Christian, the vampire who loves her.
The slightly longer summary: Rose is an "innocent" human girl who carries a secret. Christian is a vampire who's completely in love with her. They both face separate challenges, but when those challenges collide, they will change their relationship forever.
3) What is your favorite part about writing?
 I love waking up with an idea in my head and then being able to create a new world based on that. For me when I sit down at my computer, it's almost like automatic writing; the story just rolls out onto the page and then suddenly I'm immersed in this new world where amazing things happen. It's the joy of being able to create something that can serve as an escape for anyone who reads it.
4) Would you say your work is character driven or plot driven?
I think both. I'm not sure you can have a good story without a combination of the two. My characters are driven because they know what they want, but it's the plot that has them battling to get there.
5)  What inspired you to write your latest story? Did you experience any roadblocks while getting into your characters?
As clich├ęs as it sounds, I had a dream and woke up with the title of the first book in my head: Scent of a White Rose. Within minutes I had the other two and knew that these would be about a girl named Rose. The first book portrays her as an innocent–hence the "white" Rose. The second; Blood of a Red Rose, will follow Rose as she explores a darker side of herself, and the third; Death of a Black Rose, is about the turning point where she becomes truly dark, and whether Christian will be able to save her.(Sorry, I know that's kinda vague, but did you really expect me to give too much away? LOL)
As for any roadblocks, not really. I knew who my characters were from the beginning, but there were a couple that I needed to flesh out more once I got to the end of the story. So I went back and added a little more background information and detail about certain characters.
6) If you could spend one day with any of your characters, who would you spend it with?
Evangeline. She's my favorite! She's beautiful, smart, caring and old...imagine all that I could learn.
7)  What would you say your greatest strength as a writer is?
Oh wow! That's a tough question for me because I constantly think, "I can do better." editor says that she enjoys my world building. The details I include and how I portray things so that they come across just as I imagined them. I hope she's right! LOL
8)  How would you describe your writing process? Do you make an outline first?
No. I don't make an outline. As I mentioned above, things just tend to fly from my head onto the page. I can literally have the entire book's plot laid out in my head within hours, and then when I start typing the details just fill in–including my characters names. It's really a case of them telling me what their names are and what they're doing, not the other way around.
9)  I love reading novels from independent authors and small publishing companies. Do you have a favorite you can recommend?
Nope.  I can't answer that one. There are so many amazing authors out there that I enjoy, I couldn't possibly pick just one.
10)  Do you have any words of wisdom for anyone considering publishing?
I would say...just go for it. Don't let the fear of not being good enough stop you from going after your dream. But instead, let it be the motivating factor for you to really strive to do your best work. Find a good cover artist, and a great editor–do not publish without having your work edited. It can make all the difference in the world.
11)  Did you take an active part in creating your cover(s)? Do you enjoy that aspect of publishing?
I found Regina Wamba, owner of Mae I Design and Photography after seeing some of her work on another author's website. I contacted her with my ideas and sent some samples of what I was wanting to do and what "feel" I wanted my covers to have. Then, she blew me away. Her design took what I had envisioned and turned it into magic. I'm in awe of her talent and absolutely love her!
12)  What are your future plans in writing? 
I am actively working on books two and three of The Rose Trilogy, that is my first priority. But I was invited to submit a short-story for an anthology that I'm working on as well. I also have another trilogy that I'm 90% done with book one, and then have a fantasy series that I'll be working on that will consist of five short novellas. So my future plans? Just keep writing! ;)
13)  Is there anything else you would like to share with us today?
Yes ma'am. In appreciation for all those who are taking the time to follow my blog tour I would like to share the details of my giveaway once again. At the bottom of this post, you'll find an image of smoking white roses (take note of how many). Click on the image and you'll be link to my contact page where you'll need to sent me comment (using the comment form), with the number of smoking roses that you found and where you found them. On January 28th, I will post a questionnaire on my blog and the first person who has found all the smoking roses, and who correctly answers the questionnaire will win the swag package that I've put together. It includes; bookmarks, a signed notecard, a magnet, a key chain, a coffee cup, a beautiful Scent of a White Rose journal, and a signed copy of the book.
(There will also be some bookmarks, key chains, signed notecards and some magnets up for grabs at specific stops along the tour. - Check my blog for details)

14) Also, please tell us where we can find your work online?

The calculation of the rate when playing pot limit can be understood during the game , but the general equation is as shown below. Do not be fooled . Example: A round of betting takes the fourth of five community cards . After the deal three community cards on the table was $ 100 . A game in which the best hand count The more cards face down in the game , the greater the chance that someone will get a really strong hand . This should be taken into account. Color in Texas Hold'em is fairly strong hand , because the chance that someone has a more powerful card , is negligible. But in Omaha likelihood of that is much larger. So important is to choose the best possible cards. If a player has a secondary card (eg color, where the highest card is the king ) , the award can for a very heavy price .
