First, lets here about you.

My name is Erynn, and I’ve been in love with reading and writing since I was three years old. Books have always been a part of my life, but I wasn’t able to do anything “professionally” until 2013, which is when I opened my own bookstore. That led to book reviews, copywriting, blogging, and everything else I’m able to do today.
Do you use your “real” name?
Sort of. Since my name is Erynn, LadyErynn isn’t that far off.
Self-published or publisher?
Technically I’m self-published. I’m responsible for everything on the blog, and I’m the one that uploads it to the server. It’s my own little world, and I love every bit of it.
What have you written, brief synopsis: Well, I mostly write book reviews and informative articles, but I also have two novellas and a ton of poetry that hasn’t been published yet.
Tell us about your favorite main character.
My favorite main character is an ancient Dragon named Karthax. I created him for one of my novellas, and he’s constantly whispering in my head.  Where can we buy or see them: Unfortunately, no where. I’m not satisfied with this novella yet, so it won’t be published for a while.
When did you first decide to write and how long after that did you publish your book?
I’ve wanted to write my entire life, but I have yet to publish anything. I came close, though, with one of my novellas, and I’ll be working on it in the next few years.
How many books, Titles and blogs: I technically have four blogs on my website: The Book Reviews, Garden, Lexicon, and Notebook. Each one has it’s own theme, and they are all one small part of the whole.
Favorite childhood book or Author?
This is hard to answer because I was reading well above my level all through childhood. I guess it would be Anne McCafferey. Her Harper Hall of Pern trilogy really
made a difference in my life, and it remains one of my favorite books to this day.
Favorite adult book or author? Probably Stephen King. His ability to make me shudder in broad daylight has yet to me matched. Can you tell us about any challenges in getting your first book published? My biggest challenge is getting the courage to even begin. Publishing a book is much more frightening than I thought it would be, and I have tons of respect for those who choose to do it on a regular basis.
If you had to go back and do it all over, is there any aspect of your novel or getting it published that you would change?
I’d probably try and start the process sooner. I’ve been sitting on these novellas for
years, and it will probably be a few more years before I even do anything with them.
Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination? Novella one is pure fantasy based on Skyrim. Novella two has some real-life experiences woven in, but it’s mostly fantasy. Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? I definitely have some of those in Novella two, and I try to use my own experiences as much as possible in my blog posts.
Do you write from an outline or do you fly by the seat of your pants?
As a daily blogger, I need a schedule to keep my sanity. If it’s creative writing, I usually try to know where it’s headed, but it usually ends up being by the seat of my pants.
Would you care to share your best and worst review? I can for the blog! Best review I ever got was when the person who inspired the post told me: “That is probably the best reference I’ve ever seen on a web page.” I have no bad reviews that I’m aware of
Have you written a book you love that you have not been able to get published?
Yes, both of my Novellas are unpublished. How do you come up with characters names? A combination of real life and imagination.
How do you come up with ideas for your writing?
I get inspired by a variety of things. Video games, movies, jewelry, random things on the internet, you name it. Anything can be a story if you look hard
enough.
How much research do you do?
TONS! All of my articles are heavily researched for accuracy, so about
20-30% of my day is research.
What is the hardest thing about writing?
Trying to find a topic that’s both interesting to you and
interesting to your audience. What is the easiest thing about writing? Surprisingly, it’s the research. I really enjoy it.
Do you ever get writer’s Block?
All the time.
Any tips on how to get through the dreaded writer’s block?
Read. If I get stumped on an article, I read the research again to figure out where to go. If I’m working on my novellas, I’ll watch a movie similar to what I’m writing, or I’ll play the game my story is based on.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Don’t be afraid to take criticism. I can tell you from experience that having your work ripped apart feels like the worst thing in the world, but the trick is to dig through all that criticism and find something that makes you better. You don’t have to take all the
advice given, but there’s usually something there to work with.
Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
I love you all, and I hope that I can continue to make our community a safe and fun learning environment.
Fun
If you were a car what make would you be?
This is a tough question. Maybe a 1967 Impala. That’s one sexy car.
Have you ever been told you that you look like a famous person? Who?
Not a famous person, no, but I constantly get told that I look like someone’s daughter/granddaughter.
If you won the lottery what would you do?
Oh man. Probably pay off my debt and buy a summer home in Paris, France.
Describe yourself ie.(Hoarder, OCD, scatter brained):
I’m definitely a type B personality. I can get things done when I need to, but I mostly prefer to go with the flow and roll with the punches.
If you were to time travel, what would the Era be?
It depends on how I’m time traveling. If it’s just to pop in and take a peek, I’d go to Ancient Egypt, Victorian England, Viking-era Norway, and more. If it’s to stay, I’d rather not go anywhere.
Favorite song?
That heavily depends on my mood.
Favorite food?
Pizza. I could eat pizza all day, every day.
Favorite color?
Springtime green.
Do you Eat at your desk?
All the time.
Dog or cat?
Doggo!
Clothing style?
Whatever is comfortable.
Describe you dream office?
Well, since my desk is currently in a corner of the living room, an actual
office would be nice. Something with a place for my book shelf and a reading corner, maybe a window seat, and plenty of room to film things or take photos when necessary.
If you were ask to design a writer’s retreat Where should it be?
On the beach somewhere. I’ve always loved the ocean, and it never ceases to inspire me. Plus, daiquiris always help the writing process.
