EA: Creatively Creative returns to kick off the month of September with author and CEO of VOMA (Voices Of My Ancestors) Publications, J. Brinkley.
EA: When did you discover that writing would be a path you would choose as a career?
JB: In 2014 or 2015, when I put my first book out.
EA: Were there any authors who inspired you to become a writer?
JB: Donald Goins, Iceberg Slim, James Patterson, and John Grisham.
EA: What is the concept of I Forgot to be Your Lover?
JB: Choices. We need to be conscious of our daily choices.
EA: Would you say that writing a novel is easy?
JB: Yes and No. You will get better as you continue to write. I say no because you have to make time to write. It takes a lot of discipline and thought.
EA: Describe the feeling of being a best-selling author.
JB: Honestly, I don’t see it any different from putting out a regular book. Being a bestselling author only mean you sold a certain amount of books within a certain time frame. Either way, the accomplishment of getting a project completed is still the same to me.
EA: Was it a difficult process to launch your own publishing company?
JB: Launching my own publishing company was easy.
EA: What are the requirements for becoming an author with VOMA?
JB: Just be sincere in your craft. We accept Urban Fiction, Romance, Erotica, Crime and Suspense stories, etc.
EA: What’s next for J. Brinkley?
JB: I have a new book I just completed Ghetto Tales Of Anguish. And of course I’m back at the drawing board for another book.
