Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to write Covenant of Lies the Revealed Truth?
Holly Spence: It is a series that began with the first release Covenant of Lies the Untold Truth. It was actually birthed after writing my stage play, â€œSTOP! You Are Killing ME.â€
I belong to Overflow Ministries Covenant Church, and we do a lot in the Performing Arts. A production team member suggested that our next production be a drama, so I came up with the story line. It was intended to be a stage production, but I had already â€œpushed the envelopeâ€ with â€œSTOPâ€. To release it out of my mind, I decided it would be a book and it the first in a trilogy.
JP: What have you learned about yourself from your previously published novels that enhanced the way you tackled this book?
HS: Joey, this is a very interesting question. Having given it some thought, I thought that what I have learned most about myself is that I am NOT self-promoting as it relates to my accomplishments and writing, all of which has to change in order to get my books noticed by the masses.
JP: What inspired you as a publisher that keeps you coming back for more hard work in the book industry?
HS: What has inspired me as a publisher that keeps me coming back is the desire to provide wholesome entertainment that hit real life issues.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take for you to start and finish Covenant of Lies the Revealed Truth?
HS: My writing process when writing non-fiction is actually the title of the book and outline the chapter titles. When writing fiction itâ€™s the complete opposite; it is having the scenario and how it will play out. It took me about four months to write Covenant of Lies the Revealed Truth.
JP: What’s next for Holly Spence?
HS: I have completed another stage production called â€œDysfunctionâ€¦It Does Affect Generationsâ€. I would like to thank you for opportunity to interview with you today.
