3 Questions Wednesday with Alexis A. Goring

Welcome to another edition of 3 Questions Wednesday, and welcome Alexis A. GoringAlexis loves the art of storytelling and hopes that her stories will connect readers with the enduring, forever love of Jesus Christ. Lets get started!

First question:

Who is your favorite author?

Alexis:  Ooh, that’s a hard question because I have many favorite authors! But if I had to choose just one for now, I’d say Becky Wade. I love her Porter Family book series.

Sounds good. I haven’t read this series. Yet. Now here’s a fun question—

 If you could write about anyone or anything fiction/nonfiction who or what would you write about? 

Alexis: I’d love to write a (nonfiction) biography about Kamala Harris. She’s an American attorney and politician who is currently serving as a senator of California. Kamala is awesome! I’d love to work with her on writing an authentic, detailed biography that’s just as inspirational as her personality, career, and life story!

Intriguing to say the least. Last question—

If you could spend time with a character from your book or another book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

Alexis:   If I could spend time with a character from my book, it would be Michelle from Love in Pictures! I’d love to join her as a second shooter of one of her weddings where she is the main photographer! I’d like to learn the ropes of wedding photography from Michelle and find out by serving as her second shooter, if this would be a good fit for me as a side career (writing is first).

Photography would be a great side career.  Thanks, Alexis, for visiting us at 3 Questions Wednesday, and allowing our readers to know you better.

Love in Pictures

Wedding photographer Michelle Hadley has a passion for diversity and believes that love comes in all colors. So, she’s working hard to convince editors to feature her clients’ images on the covers of the mainstream bridal and wedding magazines.

Despite having a career that focuses on celebrating forever love, Michelle has never actually been in a romantic relationship, and she’s not looking for love, until she meets the one man she cannot forget. 

Since his fiancée broke his heart, Logan Emerson’s focus has been on his career. He’s won awards for his work as a print journalist and dreams of greater success on television as a broadcast journalist. But his personal struggle presents many challenges that might prevent his dreams from coming true.

Michelle doesn’t date often, and since his heartbreak, Logan has shied away from the dating scene. But something about Michelle awakens Logan’s desire to love again.

A Second Chance by Alexis A. Goring

alexis-a-goringToday we welcome my author friend, Alexis A. Goring, to discuss her latest release, A Second Chance.

Hi, Alexis! Tell us a little about yourself and your background.

Alexis: I love to write! Since age 9, I knew that I wanted to be a writer. God allowed me to follow my dreams…And a degree in Print Journalism and an MFA in Creative Writing later, my dreams are becoming a beautiful reality!

I’m passionate about photography, good food, music and movies. I love shopping at my favorite malls and spending time with family and friends.

My favorite colors are purple and black. I love to wear those two colors together. Close seconds are deep shades of blue and pink.

What genre are your books? What draws you to this genre?

Alexis: My books are Inspirational Romance/Contemporary Romance for the CBA market. My love for clean love stories and Hallmark Channel movies drew me to write this genre. I love a good romantic comedy and I adore a story where true love wins!

Do you work to an outline or prefer to see where an idea takes you?

Alexis: I prefer to see where an idea takes me. I’ve tried writing outlines before writing the story and it made it tough for me to write the story because it felt like all of the fun of it was gone. However, I do determine the emotional, physical, and spiritual GMC (goal/motivation/conflict) for each of my main characters before writing the story. My book editor Liz Tolsma advised me to do so and provided coaching as how to do that and it’s helped me to get a better handle on my characters. Thanks to this newly acquired skill, I am able to write stories that are solid.

What is the hardest thing about writing?

 Alexis: Re-writing when you already thought that your story was perfect. But a good editor knows best! So I take my editor’s advice and when I’m done, I see that my editor was right. I went through this process with my latest release, A Second Chance. It was re-written at least twice and adjusted several times before publication.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Alexis: Hopefully, in five years I will be an award-winning, well-paid writer with more published books and screenplays that are made into movies on the Hallmark Channel and the big screen! Maybe happily married too and experiencing my own happily ever after, the real-life version!

Thanks for dropping by, Alexis! And here’s where you can purchase Alexis’s latest book 🙂
