#WOTR18 #AuthorSpotlight – Attending Author Traci Douglass @Traci_Douglass

Traci Douglass

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Traci Douglass

Traci is a USA Today Bestselling Author of Contemporary and Paranormal Romance. Her stories feature sizzling heroes full of dark humor, quick wits and major attitudes and heroines who are smart, tenacious, and always give as good as they get. She holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and she loves animals, chocolate, coffee, hot British actors, and sarcasm—not necessarily in that order.

When and Why did you start to write?

I wrote my first book in 2011 after I had a dream that just wouldn’t go away until I put it down on paper. That became my first published novel, Seal of Destiny, which released from Crimson Romance in 2013.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I have wide ranging tastes when it comes to books. Some of my favorite go-to authors are Kristan Higgins, Gena Showalter, Sarah MacLean, KJ Charles, Josh Lanyon, Dan Brown, Joe Hill, and Ernest Cline.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

Just how long everything takes in traditional publishing. No one really tells you that when you go into it. From submission to an actual book in your hands, the world of publishing definitely works on its own time table.

What are you working on now?

]Well, I just recently signed new contracts with both Harlequin/Mills & Book Medical Romance and also Entangled Bliss. So I’m currently working on the proposal for Book Two on my Harlequin contract and writing my first sweet romance for Bliss. My first book with Harlequin is heading to copy edits now and should release in either late 2018 or early 2019. No firm release dates yet for the Entangled Bliss books. I’ll keep you posted on on those. 🙂

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

A bit of both. I like to start a project with at least my main plot points mapped out, so I know where I’m going. Things like inciting incident, plot points 1 & 2, the black moment, climax, HEA, etc. Then I kind of pants the journey in between, from point to point. That’s where the magic happens. 😉
