E.D. BRADY: THE VISTIRA TRILOGY IS A SWEET LOVE STORY
Posted by Ognian Georgiev
“A great series that kept me wanting to know what happened next”, “Fantastic read” and “I can’t wait for the next book in this series,” are just few of the positive comments of The Vistira Trilogy books. E.D. Brady published the first part Remembered in March 2013. The novel gathered positive feedback averaging 4.2 Amazon stars from 69 reviews.
Our next guest is from Queens, New York, but currently resides close to Raleigh.
– E.D., what the readers will see in your The Vistira Trilogy?
– Readers will find a sweet love story with a heavy emphasis on fantasy and the bond of a close family.
– How did you decide to write the story?
– The story kind of just took shape in my mind with little input from me. I had an idea one day, wrote it down, then the story and characters sort of popped out of nowhere.
– What was the biggest challenge during the write up process?
– The biggest challenge for me was knowing when to stop. I would have sat at my computer for 24 hours a day if I could have. I love writing this novel so much.
– Tell us something more about your main character Emily? Is she 100% fiction or it’s close to someone from your real life?
– Emily is completely fictional. She may be someone that I’d like to be more like. While Emily is totally fictional, Cappy (Catherine) is very much like my best friend. We’ve been friends since we were ten years old.
– How much time you need to finish a book and to publish it?
– This book took me about six weeks to write, but then maybe two or three months to tweak and edit. Publishing on Amazon was simple.
– Tell us more about your The Discovered saga?
– The Discovered Saga is a novel that centers around immortals; not your usual immortals, but a group of friends (actually, they’re family) that stumbled onto a substance that has given them an abnormally long life. It’s a very sweet and innocent love story, suitable for YA fans.
– Would you unveil something for your last novel Craving Shannon?
– Unlike The Vistira Trilogy and Discovered Saga, Craving Shannon has no element of fantasy and is strictly for a mature audience. This story would be better suited for Fifty Shades of Grey fans, but does have a sweet and innocent element when all is said and done.
– Who are you?
– I am a person who enjoys life, I have very little problems, mainly because I don’t let things get me down – life is too short for that, right? I actually enjoy simplicity, and would love to live in a place like Vistira, where life is simple and love and family are everything.
– What are your writing habits?
– I don’t write everyday – not even close. I’ll get an idea for a novel, not rest until I’m finished, then maybe not write again for a few months.
– Are you satisfied by the sales of the books?
– I’m pretty satisfied at the moment. Even one sale thrills me.
– Do you have plans for your next novel and would you unveil something about it?
– I’m currently thinking about another story about a fed-up rock star and another alternative world. I’m also in the process of wrapping up The Discovered Saga.
– How you promote by the best possible way your book?
– I’ve had good luck with giveaways and some luck with twitter and facebook, but the best promotion has been paid.
– What was your job before you start writing?
– I was an executive assistant in a major bank in Manhattan.
– With three kids around you how you are able to focus your creativity?
– I really only have two kids, the third is my furry canine child, haha. My kids are pretty easy going and find their own stuff to do. They’re not babies anymore.
– Ask yourself a question?
– If you could give advice to your younger self what would it be? I would tell my younger self that life is short, don’t be dramatic, don’t sweat the little things and remember to always laugh.
