Sabryna Bach for Lost in Romance

by Louisa Klein

1) Why writing about love? What made you write about it?
I write about love because this is one emotion everyone can identify with.  It is the most noble and inspiring subject around, isn’t it?  Specifically, my last project was an exploration of what human beings most want, and don’t want, in their private emotional lives.  It was an intense literary adventure.  Covering various types of personal relationships was a real challenge.  While writing about the intimate nature of love, I found a greater understanding of choices I had made at certain times in my own life.  Writing about love led to a deeper understanding of what love is, and can be, and what it is not.  Writing about love not only makes me a better person, but a more inspired writer. Writing about love was jet fuel for my soul.
 
2) Is there a romance author, living or dead, who inspires you particularly?
I am always inspired by the writings of the Dalai Lama, among all others.
 
3) Please, tell us about your last book and, if you can, about your future projects.
I am currently writing a biography about a well known author, and, a series of children’s book.  My last novel was written for the girl I was at 14. It’s something I wish someone had handed me, and said, “Read this, before your first kiss!” It’s a book for anyone who wishes to know more about women in love. It is an exploration of what human beings most want, and don’t want, in their emotional lives.  Specifically, it was an intense literary adventure which led to a greater understanding of choices I had made at certain times in my own life. This project focused on personal relationships of an intimate nature which might benefit any young girl, someone who is curious about “What happens when you grow up and fall in love, anyway?”  It is a very honest book, and was difficult to write.  Ultimately, writing about love, and reading about love, leads to a deeper understanding of what love is, and can be, and what it is not.  It is my hope that everything I write is covered in love, and leaves the campsite more inspired for my having been there, than when I arrived.
 
4) How was your writing journey? Was it difficult to find an agent and get published?
It took me seven years and great honesty to write my last novel, and a few more years to find a publisher once I finished.  It is published in Russian and Italian, though rejected by just about every publisher in the United States; it’s a bit racy for their tastes. I do not use an agent, only intellectual property attorneys.
 
5) What’s your opinion about this e-book revolution? Would you consider the indie route?
E-books are here to stay. No doubt about it. Say what you want about Amazon, but they’re offering a fantastic opportunity for authors of all kinds. Hopefully, a peaceful resolution will be found between old school publishers and those new to the realm of e-publishing. There is certainly room for everyone in this world.
 
6) Nowadays many publishers expect their authors to use social media a lot to promote their books. Many authors, on the other hand, would prefer to write only, without being distracted by digital trivialities: what are your thoughts? 
There are so many choices out there for authors to connect with their readers, aren’t there? I say, to each to his own. I believe readers are led to find the books they most want to read. Whatever an author can do to promote their work in a positive, meaningful way sounds inspiring to me! Follow your instincts and make smart choices. Lead with your heart, and remember to sow seeds of loving kindness wherever you go.
