Author Interviews: RS Williams

Two interviews in a single day! What fun! I’m thrilled to have RS Williams on my blog today. This lady is just a wonderful and incredibly supportive fellow writer and blogger. If you aren’t following her, you’re missing out!



Any advice for new writers?

Giving advice is sort of my thing, but usually not in the things I want to be good at. Looking for an agony aunt hit me up. No seriously, my friends always come to be with their problems. My advice to new writers would be, stop worrying about what you will do. Just write your heart out and fall in love with the written word, then the rest will come. Every one starts off with a bad first attempt but that’s why it’s called a draft, it’s not supposed to be the finished product so tell yourself the story in your mind and then refine it for your readers.

What’s your preferred genre to write in?

I prefer fantasy because I’m a huge fantasy freak, but I also like to dabble in romance too.

Do you see some of yourself in your main character? What traits have passed from you to them?

Originally I think I built both my main characters off of myself. I asked a friend to read the beginning and their reply was Tilly is so much like you. Why that is I don’t know but I’m so glad people like me enough to enjoy my characters haha!

What is the sweetest thing a reader has ever said about your work?

Not many people have read my work yet, but I think just the fact that someone enjoys it is enough for me. I know I’m not going to make millions but that doesn’t mean I can’t bring my story into someone life and transport them to another world like books have done for me.

What was the first scene you plotted for it? Feel free to be vague so we don’t ruin the surprise, but why did that particular scene turn your plot bunny into a full-blown novel?

The first scene ever? That was a fantasy battle between a badass elf princess and the person invading her kingdom. First scene for my debut? The beginning scene. I pantsed it so I wrote beginning to end with no real vision. That definitely was the hardest part. I know I need to do a bit of plotting for future works!

Here’s a spot to pimp one of your writer friends… GO! (Or to gush about a recent fave read)
Favourite Read: Throne Of Glass, super excited for Empire of Storms coming out this year!

Noelle Carter scurried across the front of an alleyway on her way to the bakery. A few drops of water hit her cheek and she started to move faster, if she didn’t get there before the rain came the door would be shut. The Baker’s son always threw out some stale bread to her if she was there, but if she was late she’d go hungry again as the only food that would be available was the trash from the new food shops that were opening up along one side of the town. Eventually it would be rebuilt to match the metropolis that was growing nearby, it wouldn’t be long before the small town she grew up in became part of the big city they’d already started on the east side. Keeping to the shadows, she moved closer to the door. Her heart sank as she neared the bakery’s back door. It was shut. Noelle cursed internally as she went to walk away, carrying on towards the towns centre.
