Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I am and always have been a veracious reader. In school when everyone dreaded reading those novels they forced on you, I delighted in it and quickly fell in love with books by Dickens (Great Expectations is still one of my all time favorites), The Chrysalids, To Kill A Mockingbird and Shakespeare. Now I read for pleasure and my go to author is Stephen King. I happen to think he is one of the most brilliant literary minds of our generation. I also read a lot of Stuart Woods (a guilty pleasure) and lately have found myself unwinding to pulp Western novels...weird right? I fly through them in a couple of hours and love every cheesy minute of them. I'm also a fan of Dean Koontz, James Patterson and indie authors too!!
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
This is a tough question because as an indie author, it isn't easy to market your book! With each release I learn a little more about marking my material and marketing myself. The internet and social media is such a vast pool of ins and outs and new readers and fellow authors. Absolutely the most effective marketing anyone can do...let alone an indie author...is to make yourself a presence online. Tweeting is fun and easy and people actually read!! Fiverr, amazon, goodreads and of course smashwords provide a lot of help too. The answers are out there for us indie writers and it is NOT an easy haul but you can do it!
