Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I like to write in school exercise books first while sitting in a public place like a pub or cafe (preferably outside), then I type the chapters up,
When the first draft of the whole book is complete, I reread it twice on my laptop, again outside
I find creative writing indoors very difficult.
How do you approach cover design?
I like to create my own cover designs and have programme to assist me, but I do use designers when I am incapable of doing it myself.
