Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
As a creative, my fans mean everything to me. For me, the creative process is an energy loop. I pour my heart, soul and mind into my creative endeavors, be it writing, poetry, design, or photography; consequently my fans receive this energy, and hopefully get something from it, and send the energy back to me, which in turn inspires me to be creative again, in an endless, beautiful creative loop. Without my fans, I am nothing. The slightest signs of encouragement mean the world to me. Negative reviews cut me to the quick, but I try to incorporate the negative energy too and transmute it to something beautiful, so something good can come of that too.
What are you working on next?
I'm pretty eclectic, so my next project is still forming in my heart. I'm working on my life and projects appear.

Marie Minnich's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by Marie Minnich

  • Road Service on Aug. 24, 2011

    This is a well written book that immediately grabbed my attention. It is short, but gave me some motivational tools that I need right now. It's a brief little "uplifter" for a down moment. I enjoyed it. I didn't like the little push at the end to market the author's business; which is why I didn't give it five stars. Either it's a book or a marketing piece. Nonetheless, certainly worth the money.
