Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
It is an inspirational process. I think about life, its joys, it's issues, nature, people in nature, creation and the forces thereof. I then identify essentials which form the backbone of my framework according to which I then fill in the detail through research, philosophical discussions and independent thought processes. Because I write non-fiction, I will always allow time for confirmation through external sources to, confirm what I wrote before I will publish it. It is a very lengthy process, but time is my ally and truth is my friend and I love the process. It sets me free!
How do you approach cover design?
Cover design is a very creative process whereby I will provide my cover designer with a short brief of the message of the book. I allow the designer to provide me with a few options based upon his interpretation of my brief. From here we guide each other to the final product through an interactive process. I will then test it in the market place among friends and family, before I choose the final design. It has to convey the message, but it also has to speak emotionally to the reader, finding his "buttons" that want him to read the book, at the same time building trust with the reader right from the cover page, on-wards.
