JoeyPinkney.com 5 Minutes, 5 Questions With... Vogue, author of The Ace of Diamonds
About "The Ace of Diamonds":
Since his release from prison, Brookstone’s most notorious drug lord, Jay Santiago, has been hard at work rebuilding his life and empire. With two businesses under his belt and one in the making, Jay is readily known as one of New York’s elite men.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write “The Ace of Diamonds“?
Vogue: “The Ace of Diamonds” is part three of a series. Most of the storyline is a continuation of subplots that have occurred in the previous books – “Diamonds in the Rough” and “Diamonds Are Forever”.
JP: What sets “The Ace of Diamonds” apart from other books in the same genre?
MF: Naturally, when you are writing a book with drug dealers, murderers and your characters are multi-ethnic, your book is automatically labeled as “urban fiction”. In writing “The Ace of Diamonds”, I realized that the label doesn’t always quite fit. (read more)
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to “The Ace of Diamonds” getting out to the public?
MF: I have learned that it is very important to keep your work on people’s radar. Whether it is posting a book trailer, hosting a giveaway, submitting your book for review or being featured on blogs, it all adds up to your book success. (read more)
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish “The Ace of Diamonds“?
MF: With “The Ace of Diamonds”, I took a different writing process than I did with my previous novels. Instead of sitting at the computer, letting the words flow and letting the plot play out for itself, I actually brainstormed a storyline. (read more)
JP: What’s next for Vogue?
MF: Currently, my focus is on promoting “The Ace of Diamonds”. I plan on attending more book events than I have with my previous novels as well as more virtual book tours so that the book can reach more readers. (read more)
