Truth and virtue, astonishment and wonder. Real life can be exciting, depressing, and confusing, but it is certainly always fascinating. In Veritas, the new poetry volume by author Ina Schroders-Zeeders, you will feel every exposed emotion as it connects with you and ultimately leads to your own personal contemplation. Whether as limitless as the oceans or as confining as our surroundings, these authentically stimulating pieces will leave you in awe.
How long did it take you to write this book? 10 months (Nov. 2010-Sept 2011
How did you find a publisher? I came across Winter Goose on Internet via another blogger
How have you promoted your book? I have contacted the local paper, they will do an article on the book, and I put a free ad on the internet of a local site. Also FB and my wordpress blog.
How do you combat writer’s block, if you indeed experience it? I just write on and if it turns out to be not good, I can always delete.
What other writing do you do? I write light novels in Dutch for a living
What methods do you use to plan/write your book? For the novels, I make a synopsis first, about a page long, send it to the publisher, and if it is approved, I use that as a schedule. I write about 2000 – 4600 words a day, depending other activities.
How long have you been writing prior to getting published? Not sure! I have been writing for a Dutch publisher for 15 years now, before that I did contests and sometimes I got a story or poem in a book or magazine.
How do you cope with rejections? I forget them I suppose (I don’t remember any! J )
What piece of advice would you give to debut writers? Keep writing, no matter how hard it is to find a publisher, and always check spelling. See what publishers others have found. Google for “Submissions publisher”. Write for fun! Any publishing, is bonus!
Are you currently writing another book? Just starting a new light novel today. Maybe there will be another poetry book, not sure yet.
Where can your book be purchased from? Veritas can be purchased from Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble. ISBN 978-09836764-6-1 and is also (going to be) sold as an eBook.
