Kindle Author Interview: Anne Vitasek

Anne Vitasek, author of Popsicle Toes, discusses her book, and self-publishing on Kindle.

DAVID WISEHART: What can you tell us about Popsicle Toes?

ANNE VITASEK: This is a journal that I have written over past years describing what happened to me as a child growing up in the same home with my half brother who terrorized and abused me in every way imaginable. He became a mall rapist in Florida. He is currently in prison in Florida.

DAVID WISEHART: What advice would you give to someone who has experienced and is trying to overcome child abuse?

ANNE VITASEK: Don't keep it a secret. Tell someone. A teacher or someone.

DAVID WISEHART: Who do you imagine is your ideal reader?

ANNE VITASEK: Anyone who is a victim or a survivor or any kind of child abuse.

DAVID WISEHART: What was your journey as a writer?

ANNE VITASEK: It took years for me to get the courage to put my story out publicly.

DAVID WISEHART: What authors most inspire you?

ANNE VITASEK: Trudy Chase.

DAVID WISEHART: What one book, written by someone else, do you wish you'd written yourself? 

ANNE VITASEK: When a Rabbit Howls is a similair book to mine.

DAVID WISEHART: How have you marketed and promoted your work?

ANNE VITASEK: Online and with business cards that I hand out and leave in libraries.

DAVID WISEHART: Why publish on Kindle?

ANNE VITASEK: Ebooks are more popular now than books are and Kindle allows you to publish your book as an ebook with no up front cost and Amazon only charges a 30% fee. I feel this is very reasonable!

DAVID WISEHART: What advice would you give to a first-time author thinking of self-publishing on Kindle?

ANNE VITASEK: Don't get discouraged, and keep on writing!

DAVID WISEHART: Thanks, and best of luck with your book.


Anne Vitasek writes, "I am a survivor of extreme child abuse, child neglect, child rape, and torture. I am now an author, a mother, a survivor, and a college graduate."
