Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Alexis Corinne and I have written one book. Dead Letters, is my debut psychological crime thriller. However, I have written many short stories that I keep to my self or have posted on the internet! I write many different genres from thriller to romance.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Dead Letters! Dead Letters came to me in a dream. It was a really unsettling dream that woke me up completely freaked out. I wrote the letter and never returned to it. Then, this past October I found it in my Google Drive and things just completely took off. The story unfolded right in front of me!
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I sometimes will listen to the same song for hours at a time while writing. For some reason, it just pushes me through, even when the scene I'm writing isn't the same beat.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
There's so many out there. I read a lot as a child.
Carolyn Keene influenced my love for mysteries, JK Rowling for fantasy, Edgar Allen Poe for the darker side of things, Shakespeare as well.
What are you working on now?
I am considering writing a second thriller that ties to this one, and I am also working on some paranormal romance.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I'm not sure yet. I am working through a lot of different places right now. So I guess I'll have to figure that out!
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write. Don't worry about editing at first. Just let it all out. Even if you're bouncing around, dont' worry about it. Read. Read a LOT.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Dont worry about if anyone reads your book. Write for yourself, not for the fame and recognition.
What are you reading now?
Nothing, surprinsingly. Let me see here…. It is going to be a tie between What the Valley Knows by Heather Christie and The Soul Trapper by Ana Calin.
What’s next for you as a writer?
A new book!
What is your favorite book of all time?
The collection of Edgar Allen Poe's work, Hamlet, and Night by Elie Wiesel
