Talk to Me Thursday ft Annitia Jackson

Updated: May 7, 2020

1. Are you a full-time or part-time author? How does that affect your writing?

I am a full-time author. Usually, it allows me to write more. But since the pandemic hit, I’ve had to slow down some because I’m homeschooling now.

2. What kind(s) of writing do you do?

I write in multiple genres. My most popular ones are Urban and Urban Paranormal.

3. What’s the biggest thing that people think they know about your genre that isn’t so?

They assume that all Urban is about drug dealers and baby mamas. But there are so many ways you can spin Urban that still gives you that hood flare, without being stereotypical. Then as far as paranormal, people always assume it’s scary, but it doesn’t have to be. A lot of the stories are just the same as regular fiction, just with a sci-fi twist.

4. Is there anything about the writing life you think is misunderstood by the public?

I think people think writing a book is easy. But there are so many components to a good story, and it takes time to put it all together. If you rush to put it together and miss one piece, then it messes up the whole story.

5. How many books have you written?

So far, 28 books total.</
