Interview with Mike O'Connor

Who are your favorite authors?
Robert Harris. Camilla Lackberg. Ken Follett. Shaun Hutson. Having recently read "The Casual Vacancy", I would add JK Rowling.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The need to go for a pee.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working, cooking, driving, child minding, child ignoring, watching TV, reading, drinking, smoking, sleeping, having sex, thinking about sex, playing games, thinking about writing, planning to write, doing things like this, which give me a break from writing. Which I'll do when I have time
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I search Smashwords and other sites
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a Western. I was about ten years old. I showed it to a few friends and my teacher. I was a celeb in my school for a while, but then I tore it up and burned it. The book that is - not the school! I wish I had kept that story. I wish I had written other stories like it that would never have been good enough to be published. But being a bully was much more fun. And guess who ended up getting repeatedly kicked and feeling sorry for himself?
What is your writing process?
I write a few lines of random dialogue, add a few vaguely defined characters that just wander around for a while. I have a few smokes and beers, then see what happens. Sometimes it all comes together and sometimes it's a complete waste of time. I'm not the kind of writer who can sit down and bang out 10,000 words a day. Lack of concentration is my weakness.
How do you approach cover design?
I like to do my own covers. I buy images from Canstock and work with them. It's a job I should probably leave to a professional designer, but I'm not yet in a position to afford that.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I have found Twitter and Facebook to be fantastic marketing tools, but you have to be careful not to get so caught up in these social media things that you have no time left to do any actual writing.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I published "Bad Faith" on Smashwords, having been rejected by many traditional publishers. It hasn't set the world alight so far, but I have had several FIVE STAR reviews. Smashwords has also played a large part in my becoming known as a writer of erotica.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Ireland, at a time when sex was still a dirty word and the Catholic church was the only government that mattered. My erotic writing pushes boundaries and my non-erotic work is extremely satirical, so I would say that everything I write is infused with a kind of anger and a need to both offend and to be loved.
What do your fans mean to you?
I've memorized the great reviews for BAD FAITH like a prayer. If I have only a couple of fans or thousands, I hope I never let them down. Being appreciated is what makes it all worthwhile.
Do you Google yourself?
Of course. It's only natural that I should want to find out about me!
Some of your erotic writing explores subjects like incest and bestiality. Why do you go there?
Because I can. That's the beauty of free speech. I write what I feel like writing and I give my readers fair warning. We can't all be million selling romance authors, so I make the most of my imagination.
