Author Interview: Fall into the Temptation of reading with author Vulyncia Poindexter

Welcome to Untamed Publishing's Author Interviews! As a company that caters to the self-published and independent author, we want to highlight and support indie authors. There is a vast array of talent amongst us, and here's the opportunity to connect the readers to their next favorite author!

This interview features, author Vulyncia Poindexter. It's time to fall in love with all things Timeless as we get to know this phenomenal author and her works!

Now before we begin, I must say that this interview is truly an honor. Vulyncia is a dynamic woman and an extraordinary poet and author. Yasss girl yasss! Though I've worked with her in several capacities, this is the first time we get to kick back and delve into actual interview mode, and I, for one, can't wait! So let's get into it!

Welcome to UP author interviews, Vulyncia! Before we begin, please tell us a little about yourself.

Yasss hunty! That intro tho! I'm humbled and honored, truly. Thank you. Well as for me, I am a social worker with two amazing girls, and I have always loved to write. Poetry is and always will be my first love.

And your poetic pen is absolutely fiyah! Trust me on that, readers. Get into that Timeless Clock and Timeless Ink! Why did you choose to bless the world with your blazing pen and become a published author?

When my mother became sick and passed away in 2012, I wanted to leave my name on more than just a tombstone. Prior to her passing, I was scared to take the leap then I realized I was wasting time, and it wasn’t hurting anyone but myself.

Wow! Those are truly powerful words, and I am so glad that you were able to use that grief and turn it into something positive. Since becoming published, what genres do you write or wish to write?

I write poetry, urban fiction and women's fiction. I’d like to take a stab at mystery novels in the future.

Now that, I would love to read. Let's continue to dive in and learn more about you. When it comes to writing, are you a morning person or a night owl?

I am a night owl for sure.

Tell us a unique writing habit that you have.

I write as it comes. If that means I write the last scene first or the middle, then so be it.

Hmm Mmm. You know I'm side-eyeing right now. I promise, readers, you'll find out why later, lol! We're going to come back to that, but for now, tell us if you were to write a book about yourself what would you name it? Why?

Oh man that’s a good question. It would be called, “Everybody’s Voice but Mine.” The reason being is because until my late twenties, I relied heavily (consciously and unconsciously) on what everyone else had to say about me and what was best for me.

Now that is a book that I believe everyone needs to read especially in today's times when so many people are focused on someone else for approval. Speaking of books, let's switch gears for a moment and discuss your work. Tell us about your current book project?

My latest release is a book co-authored by myself and Author Untamed. Boss Queens The Stiletto Mafioso is about a young woman who’s world is turned upside down by secrets taken to the grave by her mother, but not exactly buried.

Remember when I mentioned that I was coming back to the side-eye moment, readers? This is it! LOL! I have had the pleasure of co-authoring a novel with the lovely Vulyncia aka Timeless V, and I can attest that she is correct about writing as it comes, but she's so dynamic that it works out, and I am proud of the body of work created with BQSM. Now, we can go on and on about BQSM, but please tell us about your future works. What is your upcoming project about? When will it be released?

My upcoming project is Falling into Temptation Part 2: A Twin’s Revenge. It is the continuation of Alyssa’s story from Falling into Temptation Part 1. It is set to release this year (2017).

So readers go ahead and grab your copy of Falling into Temptation before part 2 drops! I promise this sinful delight is well worth it. While we are discussing your writing, what makes your writing stand apart from other authors?

My voice. As crazy as it may sound to others, absolutely nothing set authors apart aside from our voice. How I choose to use my voice is what sets me apart.

That is an excellent point! Speaking of other authors, would you like to collaborate with any other authors on a book project?

Oh goodness yes! When people have a passion for what they do, it can only create great things. That’s power!

Awesome! I love when authors can come together and create masterpieces. While we are on the topic of authors, can you name your top 5 favorite books by indie authors. Why are they your faves?

The entire Never Again No More series, including King’s Suite by Author Untamed. They are my favorites because not only can I relate to their stories, but also I love how the author allows you to grow with the characters. I was so invested in their lives that I cried with them, shouted with them, and was loving their love.

(Your check is in the mail, lol) I'm joking! I promise I didn't make or pay her to say such sweet things. Aww, thank you Vulyncia! I knew from your reviews that you liked my work, but I am honored to know that they are on your list of faves! We've talked about writing, but what are some of your other aspirations for your writing career?

To become a ghost writer for those who aspire to be authors.

Outside of writing, what are your favorite past times?

Reading, spending time with my children, and I just found a new love for fishing.

Tell us one thing about you that is a little known fact.

I’m so free flowing that a lot of scenes in my books are written out of order A LOT. I have a hard time staying structured.

What is one lesson you’ve learned since becoming a published author?

The literary world can be just as catty as any other industry. I’ve learned to trust my intuition more.

What is one myth about being a published author that you learned and would like to share?

You don’t just write a book and that’s it. You have to be willing to put in work not only with promoting but also growing in your writing skills and learning the ins and outs of every aspect of publishing. You don’t have to master it all, but stay in the know.

Vulyncia, it has truly been a pleasure to interview you, and we look forward to your future works. Please connect with the author and pick up your copy of her tempting tale, Falling into Temptation!
