Sylvia Day is one of the best examples of an author who publishes on her own terms. She self-publishes and has a line of bestselling books dubbed “The Crossfire Trilogy.” Her stories have been translated into several languages, she’s been honored with the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award, the EPPIE award, the National Readers’ Choice Award, the Readers’ Crown, and multiple finalist nominations for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA Award of Excellence. We caught up with her at Book Expo America and talked about always having to always be “on” in the world of social media and how she handles interacting with fans on her website and Twitter. We also talk about how she goes about writing a book and the best environment to make it happen.
