Tabetha Waite

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Tabetha Waite began her writing journey at a young age. At nine years old, she was crafting stories of all kinds on an old Underwood typewriter. She started reading romance in high school and immediately fell in love with the genre. She gained her first publishing contract with Etopia Press and released her debut novel in July of 2016 – “Why the Earl is After the Girl,” the first book in her Ways of Love historical romance series. Since then, she has become a hybrid author of more than forty titles, published with both Soul Mate and WOLF Publishing, upcoming works with Dragonblade, as well as transitioning into Indie publishing. She has won several awards for her books.
She is a small town, Missouri girl who continues to make her home in the Midwest with her husband and two wonderful daughters. When she’s not writing novels filled with adventure and heart, she is either reading, or searching the local antique mall or flea market for the latest interesting find. You can find her on most any social media site, and she encourages fans of her work to join her mailing list for updates.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The first one! I want to make sure the secondary characters are interesting and engaging, making readers want to continue the saga!

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I always try to add some sort of unusual history! It makes for fun reading!

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Don’t allow any negative reviews to impact you. Stay focused on what you love and remember why you started in the first place. Make sure to lift others up. It might be competitive, but there is plenty of books for everyone!

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

I work a full time job, so it’s not about the time I write. I generally write 10k words a week, which evens out to 2k words M-F.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

I’ve written more than 40 books. At this point I’m getting closer to 50. It’s tough to remember all the characters that have passed through my laptop, and especially one that sticks out more than the rest. That being said, I enjoyed writing Cosette du Bouir from The Secrets of Shadows. She was my first paranormal character and I had a lot of freedom to develop her story.

What is your definition of success?

Becoming a best seller and getting to write full time!
