Meet the Author~Viviana MacKade

Hello and welcome to my blog for another round of Meet the Author! Today I am featuring a fantastic author who has graciously agreed to do an interview and share some fun facts about herself. Don’t you just love getting to know your favorite authors? I know I do! So, without further ado please join me in welcoming author, Viviana MacKade!

What is the first book that made you cry?

The Bridges of Madison County. Gosh, it was horrible…

What are common traps for aspiring writers?

Thinking it’s going to be fast. It takes time, a lot, and commitment.

Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book?

I love reading books with connections. Not necessarily linked together, but I like when I have glimpse of previous books characters. Which is why the Crescent Creek Series is made of stand alones, but as you know the new Hero and Heroine, you see what’s happening in the other characters’ lives.

What do you owe the real people upon whom you base your characters?

Nothing. To be honest, none of the characters in my books are based on someone from the real life. They are, well, them, and only them.

What’s the best way to market your books?

It beats me… If you even have that answer please, let me know. Beating my head on the desk looking for that Unicorn it’s getting uncomfortable.

What period of your life do you find you write about most often? (child, teenager, young adult)

Adults. I had every reason to be a difficult teenager and young adult, so that now that I’m over it, I’m sure not gonna go back. I love being an adult, with all its pro and con. So I write about that.

If you didn’t write, what would you do for work?

I used to work with horses, and I used to teach Italian, so I’d be doing that. Either, or both.

Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?

Oh, I read them all right. I have a secret recipe I’ve been using since University. Put a peeled banana on a plate, spread Nutella over it (a little bit more, don’t be shy…), and eat. Now, the brilliancy of it is, it works for celebrate a good reviews AND to get over the bad ones. You’re welcome.

What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?

The first draft. It kills me.

Does your family support your career as a writer?

I don’t think my mom would have been prouder of me if I’d become president of whatever you may think of. And my husband is my first beta reader.

Meet Viviana:

Beach bum and country music addicted, Viviana lives in a small Floridian town with her husband and her son, her die-hard fans and personal cheer squad. She spends her days between typing on her beloved keyboard, playing in the pool with her boy, and eating whatever her husband puts on her plate (the guy is that good, and she really loves eating). Besides beaching, she enjoys long walks, horse-riding, hiking, and pretty much whatever she can do outside with her family.
