Amazon Author Interview


Gwen Ekins



Some Kind of Luck

An addictive psychological drama




Congratulations! Your book’s available to buy on the Amazon bookstore. How did you feel to see it there for the first time?

It’s very exciting!

I’ve spent so long working on it, knowing I can’t tweak it anymore is a bit scary, but I’m so pleased to finally have it out there.



Can you tell us about your book and why you wanted to write it?

It started when I was seeing lots of news items about people being accused of all sorts of wrongdoing and realized that once social media and the news get hold of a story, it’s hard to deal with and escape the stigma of those accusations.




Have you always been a writer / wanted to become an author?

I hadn’t ever thought of being a writer but I was bored one day and was told to read a book. I can remember thinking ‘I think I can do better than that’ and I started typing.



What made you take that leap and publish your book?

I’ve read it and tweaked it so many times it was time to let it go. I even read it backwards once!  Publishing it will allow me to move on to other challenges.


Have you any more books in the pipeline?

I have!  I’ve started on my second book. Hopefully, it won’t take as long to publish as this first one.



What advice would you offer other aspiring authors who are thinking of self-publishing? 

Go for it!

Also, using Michelle made the process so much easier than doing it myself and I know I can be proud of the end result.







All the best with your fantastic book. It’s been a real pleasure working with you and seeing your book come to life.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts (and your book) with us!
