Interview with Michael Alexander

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Early on I decided that I needed to do something with my time after I retired. I'd enjoyed reading many of the Smashwords books and decided to go ahead and write. Like everything in life, I'm still learning (and hopefully improving) as I let my imagination run wild and write stories that I enjoy. I hope my readers find them entertaining.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Without Smashwords, I'd have no outlet for my creativity.
What do your fans mean to you?
Since I almost never receive feedback from the readers, I can only judge the success of my writing on the number of people who put my stories in their libraries. For those few people, a big thank you!
What are you working on next?
I'm currently editing a sequel to Hott Stuff as well as laying out outlines for a western.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Simple answer - reading!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
The number one source is Smashwords. I also download ebooks from the local library and through BookBub.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Absolutely. It was an autobiography that fell flat on its face when I submitted it to an online publisher.
What do you read for pleasure?
Another easy answer... anything that has a gay character or a gay plot.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Almost 95% percent of my reading is done on a Kindle. The remaining 5% is on my iPad.
Describe your desk
I hate to admit it, but my desk looks like a hurricane hit it. Though I know exactly which pile to look in when I need something in particular.
