Curly-haired brunettes with blue eyes are the only women that seem to capture Keith’s attention. But is it really their appearance that attracts him or something sinister? Keith, a broken soul, who’s battling between good and evil, goes about his days trying to fight his evil urges. But because of a demonic stronghold, in most instances good loses the battle to evil.

Affected by the pain and hurt of his childhood, he now seeks out the love he didn’t receive as a child. But when he doesn’t get it, there’s retribution to pay…and what a sad day it is for those curly-haired brunettes with blue eyes who fail to make the mark. But things take a turn when he meets a grocery store cashier who has the ability to see evil through his eyes. McKenzie is able to connect dots, interfering with Keith’s destructive path – a path that could lead him to prison or even the grave.

Author Interview 

 

How long have you been writing?

I started writing in 2014. I began writing poetry, then I transitioned in to narrative writing. I haven’t wrote any poems lately, but I just published a short book of poems; poems I had written years ago. Also, I incorporated one of those poems in Eyes Don’t Lie. Nowadays, I’m more drawn to creating stories, but from time to time, I may grace you with a poem and/or book of poems.

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?

I get my inspiration from my experiences, and I believe this to be the case for everyone. What we are exposed to shapes our thoughts and is manifested through our talents (if we are brave enough to share our talents with the world).

What advice would you give budding writers?

Don’t give up! And this is geared more toward self-publishing authors like myself who are working with minimal resources while having to learn the ins and outs of the publishing process, marketing, etc. It requires a lot of hard work and consistency. And if you’re not willing to learn and put in the effort, you won’t go too far. Also, patience is important because when you’re a new author, you have to build your audience. And that does not happen overnight. You can become discouraged if you’re not patient with the process. Also, it’s important to know that your work will not be everyone’s cup of tea, and that’s okay! Don’t let people’s opinions deter you from moving forward and/or make you believe that your work is not good. And it’s not to say that one shouldn’t take heed to constructive criticism. But as writers, we need to stay true to ourselves and not feel obliged to always alter our work to appease others (especially if it’s a matter of the reader just not liking your writing style; focus on the things that really matter). Remember, it’s your masterpiece. It’s your contribution to the world. And what one person may not appreciate, someone else will.

Can you tell us about your road to publication?

I started off with publishing my books through a publisher. But I realized that wasn’t the road I wanted to take considering the costs associated with a publisher, not having all your rights to your work, etc. There are pros and cons with having a publisher, but I would much prefer having free reign to do what I want with my work, without restrictions. It’s a lot of work to self-publish, but it’s worth it. Thus, I will continue to self-publish my work.

What do your fans mean to you?

The feedback I get from people who enjoy my work means a lot to me. Having a supportive fan base contributes to my growth as an author, and the support motivates me to continue writing inspirational and entertaining stories.



About the Author:
Crystal Dawn Mason started writing books of poetry, then transitioned into narrative writing. Becoming a writer was not a goal as she began her studies as a psychology major at Indiana University Purdue University of Indianapolis. It wasn’t until she had a bad experience that she stumbled upon her natural ability to create stories. And this discovery started her down a newfound path of purpose. While working, she found another niche in the education field, which led her to pursue a teaching degree. Thus, she is now pursuing a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies to become an elementary teacher. She enjoys working with children, and her goal, outside of teaching, is to continue writing stories that are inspiring and entertaining for her readers.
