We had the pleasure of speaking with Author Liliiana Saint Clair following the release of her book “Trap for a Goose.” Here she shares with us her tips and advice for future authors.
Q - Hold old were you when you first wrote something substantial?
A - My first substantial piece of writing work was a PhD submission, which I completed when I was 28 years old.
Q - Did you ever have aspirations to become a writer?
A - I thought about becoming a writer many times, but work commitments made this impossible.
Q - What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
A - When I was a young child, a relative who was an eminent academic, offered me great advice. This was: “life must be meaningful, not an aimless waste of time”.
Q - What advice would you give to an aspiring writer?
A - Thought must be filled with feeling and passed through the heart, the only way words can create miracles.
Q - What did you find easiest and hardest about writing?
A - The ability to create and think over the idea of a work, to develop a plot up to its denouement did not cause any difficulties for me. It was more difficult to create an intrigue and keep the reader's attention to the last phrase
Q - Was it faster to write your book or to have it published?
A - I worked on the book for about four months, and the publishing house published over six months.
Q - What was your favourite part of your book to write?
A - The intrigue and humour.
Q - Do you have any plans to publish more work?
A - Oh yes, now I'm in the process of completing the second book
Q - If you could review Olympia Publishers in just a few words, what would they be?
A - It was a pleasant collaboration with Olympia publishing house. During the cooperation, Olympia has established itself as a highly qualified and responsible company. Olympia staff not only competently and helpfully dispensed their duties, but were also friendly and professional.
