Cold Coffee Café Spotlight Interview With Author Richard Alvin Blanchard

Author Richard Alvin Blanchard writes from Lafayette Indiana.


What makes you proud to be a writer from Lafayette Indiana? Giving a reader something new and fresh to read in a new sub-genre that I created, Paranoia Fantasy Romance

What or who inspired you to become a writer? R.L. Stine

Did your environment or upbringing play a major role in your writing and did you use it to your advantage? Yes, I was picked on as a kid so I retreated into books to escape from the real world

When did you begin writing with the intention of becoming published? Back in 2000-ish

What has been your most rewarding experience with your writing process? Being noticed by someone that actually has a copy of Night of Desire. I was at a library and a mother came up to me, I had a shirt on that was the very same drawing I used for the cover, she said. “My son would be so jealous that I met you, he loves your books.” I have yet to forget her inspiring words.

What has been your most rewarding experience in your publishing journey? Knowing I have the skills to be writer

How many published books do you have? Published 3 unpublished…3 and counting.

Please list the titles of all your books: Waves of Desire, Night of Desire, Blood of Desire, Bloodletting of Desire, Illusion of Love, Divided by Illusion

Do you come up with your title(s) before or after you write the manuscript? After, I just get the rough draft was done and in the process, the titles just come to me

Please introduce your genre and why you prefer to write in that genre? Paranoia Fantasy Romance, need I explain more?

Which book title would you like featured in this interview? Illusion of Love

What was your inspiration, spark or light bulb moment that inspired you to write the book (one book) that you are seeking promotion for? While seeing at my favorite park I was looking over the railing into the water and I could see in my mind a woman doing the very same thing. That day I wrote I think 16 pages that began Illusion of Love

What one positive piece of advice would you give to other authors? DON’T give up, find what WORKS for you, don’t rely on what other authors say to do.

Who is your favorite author and why? R.L. Stine, for his TWIST endings.
