Five Questions with Louise Knott Ahern

Louise Ahern

Louise Knott Ahern is the fearless leader of Capital City Writers Association. In addition to keeping us in tip-top shape, she writes spicy, funny, heartwarming romance novels. Read on to learn more about the secret life of this writer!

 

What is your writing schedule like?

That varies depending on where I am in the production cycle of a book. When I’m nearing a deadline, I keep a really intense schedule. I write every day, including weekends. My most productive hours are in the morning through 1 p.m., and in the evenings between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.
 
What has surprised you most about your journey as an author?

I think the thing that has surprised me the most is how organically a book can find an audience. With very little marketing on my part, I still manage to sell books every single day. How do some of these readers find my book? I have no idea! But it’s such a thrill to see every single book sale and know that my book appealed to someone out there in the world.

Do you have any writing rituals or habits that others might think are strange?

Not sure if people would find this strange, per se, but I write to an old kitchen timer. I set it for sixty-minute blocks. There’s something about the literal ticking clock that keeps me focused. Setting the timer on my phone doesn’t have the same effect, which is strange!
 
What's the LAST thing you Googled for your novel?

I’ve Googled some pretty embarrassing things, but the last thing I Googled was pretty lame! I looked up the distance between Cleveland and Las Vegas.

 
What are you working on now?

I’m getting ready to release my second full-length novel, Seventh Inning Hero!!

 

Be sure to stop by Schuler in Eastwood on October 5th for Louise's workshop on editing! We'll be there from 7-830pm.
