Winkk, author of Misleading
(Ailam Publishing LLC)
Misleading by Winkk draws you into the glittery, but gritty realm of Jarvis Denttin, a self-absorbed club owner who gets on a first-name basis with betrayal while expanding his successful business in Chicago. Devastated by the shocking murder of his best friend, the womanizing Jarvis Denttin starts distrusting the people around him, and they prove that they are more conniving then he could imagine.
With money dominating his life, he is unaware of the scheme being orchestrated to bring him down. He finds himself fending off power moves from a circle of business associates, including a vengeful lover and a longtime, once-trusted protégé. Oblivious of his acquaintance motives, he gets put in a deadly situation.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write Misleading?
Winkk: I was inspired to write Misleading because sometimes you never really know the intentions of the individuals around you. Misleading is a story about karma. What goes around always comes back around.
JP: What sets Misleading apart from other books in the same genre?
Winkk: Because I love to keep readers guessing what is going to happen next and shocking them throughout the storyline, I think my style of writing sets my novels apart from others. I have lived an interesting life and have witnessed some things that most people might feel is unbelievabl. In my world, it’s reality, and it makes an interesting novel.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to Misleading getting out to the public?
Winkk: My keys to success are always promoting, marketing, learning and willing to eat, sleep and breathe this industry. Never giving up on my dreams and always having faith keeps me pushing forward.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish Misleading?
Winkk: My writing process is to visually create the story and book cover in my mind. Once I can see the story and cover, I’m ready to start typing. It usually takes a couple of months to finish the book. Then the work begins with the editing process.
JP: What’s next for Winkk?
Winkk: I’m currently working on my fourth novel. Since I like to stay busy, I hope everyone keeps in contact with me at http://www.winkkatme.com.
