Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) : What is your favorite aspect of being an Author ?
Beverly Vercher (BV) : My favorite aspect of being an Author is that I can get lost in a story and be free in it. I can create the life that I want and the characters that I want to share that life with. Although my stories are mostly fictional, my characters become my friends and family and when I'm not writing I miss them just as I would if they were real people.
Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) :What was the single most important decision you made that contributed to your success?
Beverly Vercher (BV) : My best decision is to let go of the fear of failure. I've learned that failure can be both a blessing and a lesson. When you fail, you learned what your weaknesses are and you can correct them.
Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) :Being a author is extremely complex field to break through what would you say are the top three skills needed to be a
successful entrepreneur and having a flourishing career as a author?
Beverly Vercher (BV) : First, you need to make time to write. You must be able to sit down and focus only on your project. Secondly, you must be passionate about your project. If you love what you're writing about, the story will reflect that passion and excitement no matter the subject. Lastly, you must be willing to invest in yourself; time and money. Unless you are able to hire a marketing and/or PR team, you must be willing to do the footwork; such as networking with other Authors, reaching out to different media outlets such as radio, magazines, etc. The word will eventually spread but you have to work hard in the beginning.
Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) :What have been some of your failures, and what have you learned from them?

Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) :What ignited the spark in you to start a entrepreneur venture or to pursue your career?

Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) :Do you believe there is some sort of pattern or formula to becoming a successful author?

He has a lot of steamy scenes but it's also a very touching and emotional love story. Each time I read it I get the same joy as the first time. That book inspired to me to take my time and write stories that will inspire everyone that reads it.

Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) :What is a Inspiring Woman To You ?
Beverly Vercher (BV) :An inspiring woman is a woman that can lift others up even when she's feeling her lowest. She's strong but not afraid to cry. She's driven, willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. She's willing to help other women, even if they're pursing the same dream she is. She sees them as her sister, not her competition. And most of all she's a praying woman. A woman that knows that she can be ALL things through Christ!
Fashion Gxd Magazine ( FGM) :What are your hobbies? What do you do in your non-work time?
Beverly Vercher (BV) : In my non-work time, I am the President of a social club (Beauty & Brains S/C). So most of me weekends are spent supporting other clubs by donating time (attending their events) and/or money/materials (donating to their fundraising events). I get to have fun while helping out in my own and other communities. But when I don't have a social or motorcycle club event, I'm usually home with my husband relaxing. We're empty-nester's now, so we are really enjoying each other and the time we spend together is priceless.
