Date with My Boss’s Daughter is about what happened when an employee from an advertising agency goes out on a date with his boss’s daughter. I like to write freely as thoughts come to mind.

Was it a particular event or a gradual process? I like to first think of the idea for the book. If it’s a glaring error that I see, I’ll edit at that moment. I recommend building as much momentum as possible prior to the release of their book. As a newbie myself that’s still learning, my biggest advice is that new authors have their own website to market their work. The dialogue also came pretty easy. I want to have the opportunity to be able to release a book when I feel that it’s ready to come out. Any advice that you would like to give to other newbies considering becoming Indie authors? I think both men and women could find this book enjoyable. Where did you get the idea from? Are your characters entirely fictitious or have you borrowed from real world people you know? I do try to market the book on the different social media outlets, along with on my website DarekBlack.com. What are you working on now? I had my book cover professionally done. Do you listen to music while you write? I grew up in Boston, but I spent all of my adult life in NYC up until recently. If so can you please describe it? I was thinking of so many scenarios that exist where a business owner has his daughter working at his firm. The hardest part of the process was the editing.   I want to again thank The Indie View and the readers. What would you like readers to know about you? For a shorter story, I generally do not outline. I don’t listen to any music while I write. Do you have a marketing plan for the book or are you just winging it? About Publishing
Did you submit your work to Agents? How long did it take you to write it? The development of the story, as far as what happens and the conclusion. After I did my own editing, I hired a professional editor to finetune. I felt it would be an interesting story to explore if an employee actually went out on a date with his boss’s daughter. It’s about everything that happened that night. Do you have a target reader? If yes, what gets the fingers tapping? Do you edit as you go or wait until you’ve finished? Did you hire a professional editor? Do you outline? I believe that Date with My Boss’s Daughter could be entertaining for any age group, but if I had to pick an age group, I would say 17 to 45. There are a lot of authors that have influenced me. At this time, I’d rather go the self-publishing route. Darek Black – 20 December 2018
The Back Flap
What could possibly happen when an employee at a major advertising agency makes the ambitious decision to go out on a date with his boss’s daughter? I hope my books leave a lasting impression, no matter the subject matter or genre. I love how George Orwell and John Steinbeck put messages in their books. About the book
What is the book about? Sometimes I’ll have a conclusion in mind as I start writing, other times a conclusion develops as I write. Were there any parts of the book where you struggled? Did you get your book cover professionally done or did you do it yourself? We all know how important it is for writers to read. I started writing the book May of 2017. I’m preparing the release of my second book titled The Psychologist and editing my third. But generally, I prefer to edit after I finish because I want to make sure that I get all of my thoughts down. My primary goal is to make the book as entertaining as possible. It’s a night that Bobby Hunter will never forget. I felt it would be an interesting story to explore if an employee actually went out on a date with his boss’s daughter. About Writing
Do you have a writing process? End of Interview:
Get your copy of   Date with My Boss’s Daughter from Amazon US or Amazon UK. I would say it depends on the book. For a longer story, I may outline to indicate certain events that need to happen to make the story work. What made you decide to go Indie, whether self-publishing or with an indie publisher? My characters are completely fictitious. Where do you live now? If so, do you do so extensively or just chapter headings and a couple of sentences? First off, thank you for having me. This is my first published book, so I’m learning as I go. When did you start writing the book? About You
Where did you grow up? I had a lot of fun writing this book. You can learn more about me at DarekBlack.com. I didn’t submit my work. What came easily? It could be a horror book, but he’ll find a way to inject a little humor. I currently live in Atlanta. I just try to have an understanding of the beginning, middle, and end. Are there any particular authors that have influenced how you write and, if so, how have they influenced you? I also really like Peter Abrahams, specifically how he builds suspense and writes incredible dialogue. I like Stephen King’s nuanced and multilayered style of writing. It took me about a week to write it and about two weeks to edit it. I was thinking of so many scenarios that exist where a business owner has his daughter working at his firm.
