I’m excited to introduce you to my author friend, Sherry Terry. I’ve read lots of her work, and she’s quite an amazing storyteller. Her romances are sweet and tender…and hot. You can’t help but fall in love with her characters.
Sherry writes historical as well as contemporary romance, and is quite particular at getting her facts straight. Her passion for facts leads to incredible detail in her stories. You feel like you’re their watching it all happen! From being stranded in the mountains during a blizzard (contemporary) to watching the castle being taken over by the enemy (historical, obviously), you’ll be in for a fast-paced, exciting adventure.
I was recently able to ask Sherry a few questions, and here are her answers:
Q: Do your friends and family know that you write romance/erotica?
A: Yes. They support me 100% and encourage me to keep writing erotica romance. In fact, they bug me more than anyone else about when I’m going to publish.
Q: Where do your ideas come from?
A: Everywhere. Mostly scenery, a beautiful spot during a sunset, a tree growing unusually, a dark path into the forest. A friend can post a picture online, and I’m off to the races with a story idea. Rarely do I get ideas from a written prompt, it’s usually a visual prompt. I once saw a linen cart in my grandmother’s nursing home that gave me a flash of an idea for a horror story, bodies stuffed in the linen carts… Que scary music!
Q: For your own reading, do you prefer ebooks or traditional paper/hard back books?
A: I’m not all that thrilled with the new trends in the publishing world because I like the feel of a book in my hands. An ebook doesn’t have the same feel. I love the way paper and hard back books smell, the turning of the pages, the folding down of the corner to save my place. I swore I would never hold anything less than a book in my hand. Then I got old and can’t see well anymore, so ebooks are better. I have a light on my kindle.
Q: What do you think of “trailers” for books, and will you create one for your own romance and erotica work?
A: I’ve seen some good ones and some bad ones. I have no feelings one way or the other. Right now, I have no plans to create one for my stories at this time, but I need to do some research on how they impact sales first.
Q: If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why?
A: I would do one of those castles vacations in Ireland or Scotland. I would love to stay at least a week or two and immerse myself in their way of life and history.
Haha! Of course she’d like to visit one one of those castles. She wrote a book with a castle as the setting. Beautiful!
And there you have it—a glimpse into the life of author Sherry Terry. I’ll let you know when her books are available. You won’t want to miss them!
