Advice from IR Approved Author HK Jacobs: “To write well, one must live well.” 


Becomes wild Received a 4+ star review, making it an approved IndieReader title.

He later found an interview with writer HK Jacobs.

What is the name of the book and when was it published?

Becomes wild (06-13-2021)

What is the first line of the book?

Everything felt swollen – the eyelids, cheeks, lips. Especially her lips that had been angrily and desperately kissed the night before.

What is the book about? Give us the “plot”.

A devoted doctor who travels the world finds love beyond her wildest dreams and struggles to reconcile who she is with who she has not yet become.

What inspired you to write the book? A particular person? Event?

My experiences as a physician in children’s world health and my obsession with great love stories!

What is the main reason someone really needs to read this book?

Read this book to fall in love, escape to exotic places and embark on a journey of self-discovery where you will ask yourself: What is too much to sacrifice for someone you love?

What is the most special thing about the main character? Who – real or fictional – would you say the character reminds you of?

Alex Wilde has a flawed selflessness in which she gives love to others that she herself cannot accept. She’s partial I … maybe more than I like to admit!

If they turned your book into a movie, who would you like to see the main character?

I love this question! For Alex Wilde, I’m a photographer, Lily Collins or Dakota Johnson. Ian Debal will be like young Ian Somerhalder or Chase Crawford. My friend and I chose Luke Grimes for Logan and Joe Alvin for Tim.

When did you first decide to become a writer?

Last year! I have always loved creative writing and I am an avid reader … and now I do not stop!

Is this the first book you wrote?

This is the second. The first was Wild Type (Book 1 of the Alex Wilde Series)

What do you do for work when you are not writing?

I am an pediatric intensive care physician.

How much time do you usually spend writing?

I write two pages a day (or sometimes more) before my kids wake up in the morning!

What’s the best and hardest part about being an indie?

Best: The sweeping community of talented writers I’ve discovered.

Hardest: Ask people to believe in your work.

What is great advice you can share with other indie authors?

To write well you have to live well.

Would you go traditional if a publisher were to call? If so, why?

I would do it if it was appropriate!

Is there anything special that motivates you (fame? Capital?)

I want to give people what they are looking for – escape, epic romance, adventure. Opportunity for another life!

Which writer, living or dead, are you the most adoring?

Jane Austen – She’s ahead of her time.

What book would you like you to be able to write?

Harry Potter … hands down.
