The Literary Vixen presents…
Joining us today is Christine Clinton! Her upcoming release, Xavion (YNO Idols Series Book 1) is releasing February 6th 2023.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hello my name is Christine Clinton and I live in Oklahoma. I have been married for 31 years. We live on 55 acres where we raise cattle and chickens.
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
I have always loved to tell stories, writing just came along with it.
How much ‘world building’ takes place before you start writing?
I make a vision board. I try to see the characters before I write about them.
What time of the day do you usually write?
I write mostly during the day because I stay at home by myself.
What gave you that final push to press publish on your first book?
I was so scared to push the button. I said a quick prayer and pushed it. Here goes nothing haha
Which of your books were the most enjoyable to write?
I love all my books but if I had to chose one it would be Apache Sun. It just came so naturally.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
What has surprised me the most is how some characters are just chatty and easy to tell the story, but there is always that one character that is hard to figure out.
What are some challenges that have come up during your writing and publishing journey?
I have struggled finding a good editor. I finally after several editors found an honest reliable one.
Are you working on anything at the present you would like to share with me?
Yes, I’m working on Looks to Timber. This book is a part of the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers series.
What advice would you give to other authors?
Don’t give up. Write something everyday even if it is one sentence. Believe in yourself you can do it.
What is the one thing you want people to know about you and your books?
I hope that when people read my books they feel and hear my heart in every story. I pray they walk away satisfied.
Thank you Christine Clinton for chatting with me! I will include her information down below. Check out her newest release, Xavion today!
Emma, a naive country girl is burned by the first love. Out of this relationship she emerges, not just with scars and the broken pieces of her heart, but with the opportunity to be a mother.
Just when Emma thinks she has all she ever wanted in her life, in comes Xavion, K-pop singer and hallyu star from Korea. Xavion with his own share of difficulties shows Emma that sometimes, your life is not as complete as you think it is. We just need that one last piece for life to really fall into its perfect place.
This is a story that tells how love can rise above barriers set by origins and status.
I was born and raised in Arizona. Which is where I met the love of my life. We decided to move to Northern Oklahoma. Where we have raised our children around faith, love, and storytelling. When I’m not writing I’m usually enjoying spending time with my grandbabies, junk journaling or researching history. I’m a hopeless romantic. I have always been a sucker for happy endings.
