Interview: Diamond Davenport

Summer in DallasI understand this is your first novel.  What occurred that you decided to write a romance novel?

Yes this is my first novel in my pen name! I’ve always wanted to right a romance novel. So one night an idea popped into my head, so I got up and wrote down the ideas. The next morning I started to write it out! I love the way this story went.

Is Diamond Davenport a pen name?  It seems the perfect romance author name!

Yes it is! I write under my real name as well. I write YA paranormal in my real name. I’ve decided to write paranormal under that name and romance under this name. Also, thank you.

How long did it take for you to write this book?  What did you struggle with?

It took me about 5 months to write this book. I struggled with who I wanted Summer to be with lol. I love the 3 main characters. Some days I had to sit back and do some hard thinking, but in the end it finished the way I wanted it to.

Is there a book or series of books that had an impact on you as a child?  What book(s) and why?

Oh yes! The Babysitter’s Club. I love that series. I really want to collect them all and read them. LOL. I just thought the books were written brilliantly and they were very entertaining.

What challenges have you faced in getting this first book published?

I have a really good editor, she helped me with everything. She got it published on Amazon for me and also she did all my formatting, and what not. The only challenge I had was getting my book on Goodreads.

What was your favorite scene to write in the book?

My favorite scene was when Summer and Barrett kissed at the concert. It was both beautiful and real. I really love when they are together in the book, and I love the chemistry they have towards each other.

What is your advice to other new authors?

Never give up on your dreams. You can do it if you put your mind to it. Also, write EVERYTHING down!

As a reader, are you still into print books, do you have a tablet or Kindle…? Or are you doing some of both?

I have a Kindle and I still collect books. Some days I just like to open up a book and hold it in my hands.

Have you started on a new novel?  What can you tell us about it?

I haven’t started anything as of right now! But I am starting something new using my real name.
