The Day I Finally Felt Like an “Author.” RELEASE WEEK: ALLURING SURRENDER: DAY 4.

The Day I Finally “Felt” Like I Was an Author
By: Author Skye Turner

About seventeen months ago, I started on this journey called self-publishing. One day in the summer of 2013, while my husband was offshore and my kids were running around my house like crazy little people, I sat at my laptop and decided to get the ideas that were living in my head… out.

I wrote like a person possessed that day. I think I wrote something like nine thousand words. It was like now that I was finally allowing the voices in my head to talk, they had so much to say.

Release Week! Alluring Surrender’s Playlist

Nothing is better than music, right!?

My debut series, Bayou Stix, is about the band Bayou Stix. The characters are musicians, but the books are more about the people in the band over the actual band. There are band things covered, but I focus more on the people and less on the act in my books.

Why did I choose to make my characters musicians? Well, because I love music. It’s something I’ve always loved. Music is one of the most amazing things on the planet. Music has the innate ability to invoke emotion. It can alter your mood with only the beat of the bass and the lyrics of the songs. It’s almost mystical and if you think about it… it’s magical.

Every book of mine has a Playlist for this reason. When you listen BEFORE you read, it gives you some insight into what might happen in the book. It keeps you guessing. When you listen AFTER you read the books, you can relate certain songs to specific situations in the book. Continue reading

What a difference 8 months makes…

Eight months ago, in the middle of summer, with my kids home and my husband offshore, I got this crazy idea. I decided that I no longer wanted to edit other authors books, but instead I wanted to write a book of my own.

I sat down at the end of my dining room table and I wrote. The first day, I wrote over 9000 words.

I’d had this idea for a book in my head for a very long time and I decided it was time for it to come out. Continue reading
