I am super excited for today’s special guest!
I can’t remember how long ago I connected with V. Castro, but I have to say, since I have, it has been truly amazing and so rewarding to see how fantastic her writing is going. She continues to break new ground and pummel her long-time and new readers with each and every release!
Please, do welcome V.!
Steve: What does your writing time look like? Do you try to write at the same time each day? Do you have a word count you attempt to hit?
V.: I try to write like a regular 9 to 5 especially if I have deadlines to hit. After my children are in bed I also try to write. As I get busier, doing admin, promo stuff, and social media all cut into writing time. I will only consider word count if I am on a tight deadline and I know I have to make those numbers. Otherwise, I try to be gentle with myself as it is better for my creativity.
Steve: If you started a series and for some reason had to have another author finish it, who would you choose?
V.: That would definitely be Gabino Iglesias!
Steve: Tell me about your newest release (novel/story/poem/novella) and why someone should read it!
V.: On November 1st people should definitely go out and order Aliens: Vasquez!! I’m the first Latina to write for the franchise and we need more women of color leads in stories like this. I can’t tell you how many Latinx folks reach out and tell me how good it is to see representation. It means something to us. The more I sell the higher the chances I can do more and I loved every second creating this world. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Steve: Bonus Question! If they made a movie about your life, what actor or actress would you suggest they get to play you?
V: I think Salma Hayek. For sure!
Excellent choice! And V., thank YOU for all of your support as well!
