She Writes Press author Denese Shelton recently released her debut novel Awaken, a Christian romance about the way dreams can influence your life for the better and change your overall outlook on life. We recently caught up with the author and asked her a few questions about her own writing.

She Writes: Share your writing routine.

Denese Shelton: When I sit down to write it works better for me if I use a notebook and a pen. Once I get an idea I try to get it down quickly. Later, I transfer the writing to my laptop and continue the story from there.

SW: Describe your writing style in three words.

DS: Expressive, optimistic, informal

SW: What is the first thing you can remember writing?

DS: One of the first things I can remember writing is a report for school in maybe the first grade about what I did on my summer vacation.

SW: When did you start to feel like a writer?

DS: I started to feel like a writer in high school.  

SW: What advice would you give aspiring authors?

DS: If it’s your passion and you think it’s your purpose, keep writing.

SW: What do you do to help develop your craft?

DS: I like to read all kinds of fiction.  I also try to read books about the process of writing and publishing and people’s different experiences in publishing and writing.

SW: What methods are you using to market your book?

DS: I have a publicist. I’m also using word of mouth and networking.
