We have big news people! Your wonderful and most favorite mods ever thought it'd be super awesome to do an author Q&A. We've never had one happen before here in Challenge Corner so we figured why not try to get the ball rolling on that! We reached out to none other than the wonderful and amazingly talented, Laura Thalassa! We asked her to do a Q&A and she so kindly agreed!

Some back story on Laura. She's has written many books. Some of those are Rhapsodic and the rest of The Bargainer Series, her The Queen of All that Dies series and many more that are some of my personal favorites. She's currently working on her Four Horsemen series, where Pestilence came out last year and War should be out sometime in the near future. Our fingers are crossed that it's super soon! She's agreed to answer your questions regarding her published books, upcoming books, being a self-published author or an author in general, and anything else you guys can think of within reason. (:

I know many of you have read some of her books and have even done buddy reads with yours truly. So we figured Laura was the perfect pick to try to have our first author Q&A! Please comment on this thread here (or message me if you'd rather stay anonymous) with your questions for her. We will pick maybe 10-15 questions to ask Laura and get them over to her. We will then post her response when she sends the answers back!

We're super excited to have our first author Q&A here in CC! We wanted to include our group members in the Q&A rather than us mods decide all the questions that get asked. So we hope you all will come through with your questions! <3

Here's some ways to find out more about Laura and her books!
Laura's Goodreads Page
Laura's Website



We want to get our questions to Laura in a timely manner so this thread will be up for about a week or so. So that we can get the questions together and get them over to Laura!

Questions:
1. What made her decide to go the self-publishing route?

2. How different is it compared to traditional publishing?

3. Where does she do most of her writing?

4. Where did she get the idea for a Four Horsemen story?

5. When did she know she wanted to be an author?

6. How can one get an arc of her books?

7. Where does she pull her inspiration from? Real life people/situations, other authors/books, etc?

8. Which of her books was her favorite to write?

9. After finishing War, what book will she be working on next?

10. Is there any chance of getting a small novella for what happens after the events at the end of Dark Harmony?

11. Any advice for someone who wants to be an author but might be scared of getting into it?
