You Know we love books and writing! We were so excited to catch up with one of our favorite local authors, @mya_duong (link in my bio to get her book 👆and learn more about her 🦋) Fresh off her first book, MINDFUL THINGS, we asked her some intriguing questions and got the scoop on her second book coming out this summer!
CM: You’ve mentioned MINDFUL THINGS is a trilogy. When did you decide to write more than one book in this story?
MD: As mentioned on my website, MINDFUL THINGS was drafted in 2008. Between 2008 -2010, I had completed books 1 & 2. Years later, I did more revisions & editing to finally put book 1 on sale in Dec. 2017. I decided to make this story a trilogy - for now.
CM: When does book 2 come out? Do you have a title?
MD: Plan is for an end of summer 2018 release. A TIME OF WITCHES. Yay!! CM: Is writing fantasy your main focus?
MD: For now, I’m sticking with fantasy. I do like to read many different genres.
CM: Do you read everyday?
MD: I should, but no. I’m a sporadic reader. Sometimes I don’t read for 2-4 weeks, then I read everyday for 2-8 weeks.
CM: How do you inspire new writers to keep writing?
MD: Keep writing, reading, and talk to other writers. Practice. Reward yourself when you complete a writing goal. IE 5000 words or a set of pages
