Author Interview with Sunayna Prasad
- Why did you decide to create a second edition of “From Frights to Flaws”?
I was disappointed that Amazon kept deleting my book’s reviews, thus my overall rating got lower. Also, sales were not so great. The reviews were fine, but I decided that I could get better reviews if I updated some minor content.
- The cover has changed too from the first edition, I see. Which cover is your favorite?
The second one for sure.
- Will you update the other books in the series as well?
Yes, I will update the sequel, “Wizardry Goes Wild”. I hope I don’t have to update the rest of the books.
- Do you plan to write any more books in the Alyssa McCarthy’s Magical Missions series?
Yes, I plan for 7 books total.
- Have you set any writing goals yet for next year, 2019?
Yes, I want to write my fourth installment and much more quickly than the first 3, but carefully, of course.
