Interview and Giveaway with Lisa Kumar!

Today, I have the wonderful Lisa Kumar on my blog! Keep reading for an interview with the author, as well as a giveaway!

What inspired you to become a writer?

While reading, I found that my mind always played the ‘what if’ game. There are so many different ways to write a story, and no two authors will write it the same way.

When did you begin writing?

About two years ago.

What do you do in your spare time?

Read, exercise, and write.

What drew you to the fantasy/paranormal genre?

I love the fantasy/paranormal genre because everything is possible in these worlds. Old legends can have new life written into them, and new myths can be created.

What is your biggest challenge of being an author?

The inertia of trying to write when there are no deadlines is a big challenge. The habit of writing is an easy one for me to break if I’m not careful.

Do you write series, or do you prefer stand-alone books?

For me, it depends on the storyline. Some books work better as stand-alones, while others are better suited to a series. One caveat about series, though, is when they go on for too long. As a reader, three or four books are about my limit. After that, I lose momentum to read the rest of the series.

How many books have you written?

Three--one short story, one novella, and one novel that hasn’t been published yet

What are some of your favorite movies/tv shows?

I don’t watch much TV or many movies, so I don’t have any favorites.

Who is your favorite author?

I have many favorites, but couldn’t pick one over the others. A motto I could live by is ‘so many authors and so little time.’

What are you currently working on?

I’m working on revisions for Mists of Eria, my fantasy romance novel. This was the first story I wrote, and as such, I’m hardily sick of looking at it. I’m waiting for the day revisions end for this particular piece.
