Kethric Wilcox Interview
Tell us a little about yourself and your work.
I’m a busy graphic designer during the day and at night I’m either writing or hanging out with my partner watching a variety of things on Netflix and Hulu.
You’ve got 20 words to sell your work. Tempt us.
Have you ever wondered what if the characters in fairy tales didn’t get happily ever after? Silver Hunter answers this.
Where do you like to write?
I have a private office space set up for my writing, but I also carry a notebook with me because I never know when my characters might decide to share with me.
Is there anything you must have in order to write?
A pen and paper or my laptop is a must have. I also usually have a beverage and a snack on hand as well.
What books have influenced you most, both as a person and as an author?
I’m a voracious reader so it’s hard to say what ones have had the most influence on me as a person. As an author, the works of Katherine Kurtz, Mercedes Lackey, and a few others influences me.
What is the one thing that has helped you develop most as an author?
The very first review I received wasn’t a glowing one, but the reviewer left a lot of good constructive criticism, which I took to heart.
What do you want to achieve most from your writing?
I hope that I create a world that’s as immersive for my readers as it is for me.
Is there something specific you do to improve your writing?
I pay attention to comments and suggestions my editor makes on each of my books and work to incorporate them not only into that book but each book after that.
What is the ideal relationship between editor and author?
It’s one where you both work together to create the strongest story that can be told. I have an editor who gives me not only in manuscript edits but also sends me a second document with additional suggestions. She’s amazing.
If you had a direct line to someone who loves your writing, what would you say?
I actually have that with several of my fans. I always thank them for their support and let them know I’m open to suggestions about what they’d like to read from my setting next.
If you had a direct line to someone who hates your writing, what would you say?
Tell me exactly what you hate about my writing, because I’d like to know what I could do to improve and appeal to more people.
If you could give one piece of advice to an aspiring author, what would it be?
Get an editor and beta readers, do not publish until you’ve been beta read and gone through both a content edit and a proofreading edit.
What does your writing future hold for you?
Currently, I’m working on a vampire series set in the same world as my Silver Hunter trilogy. After that I have plans for some fan requested spin offs from Silver Hunter.
How have you set about the task of creating enticing cover art?
I try to find images that capture my characters and then work them into a semblance of a scene from the book.
How often do you read? What genre?
I read all the time. My genres run from history and science to high fantasy and space opera.
Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions. Best of luck in the future.
