Interview with Toni Williams

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I must admit, I'm partial to the kindle. It's very handy for on the go reading.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Some of the best marketing techniques that are the most effective, are the social media platforms for me.
Describe your desk
Oh my, well to be honest. I can only describe it as a war zone of sticky notes and scratch paper of ideas.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a country town in East Texas, and it greatly influenced my creativity for writing. It was trees as far as the eyes could see with beautiful, yet wide open landscapes. The night sky was always full of adventure and movement, I could write for hours with views like that.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to branch out and challenge myself by doing something a little different. In doing the same things you get the same results, so in doing something new, well, let's see the results that come now.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has played a vital role in my success. From day one, they gave me an opportunity to grow and mature in the business. They do the main thing others look over and forget about. What's most important to authors and their readers. Smashwords care's about their authors and their success.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me it is the free flowing feeling of creativity pouring out. The moment of the idea sparks, which leaves my desk covered in scratch papers and or sticky notes. It ends up being apart of another book, it's exciting.
What do your fans mean to you?
The fans are motivation to keep writing to become better. I appreciate them so much, for their love and support of reading, without them it's no fun.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on a anthology of poetry books at the moment. I'll definitely let you all know the release date and where to find it when it's finished.
Who are your favorite authors?
I like Zane, Marcelle Six, Sunny Giovanni, Yandy Binx and many more .
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My faith and trust in God.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I rest and relax and do some arts and crafts or reading a good book on the patio.
