Interview with Cory Plimo

When did you first start writing?
I stared writing poetry in 2008. I was 14 then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
"Little Things" is my latest book, it is a collection of poems that handle growing up, nature, culture, perfidy, politics and love. On the whole it makes clear the wonders of how littleness of social being is as perceived from poverty and wealth.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
It is quite hard to meet the conservative, restrictive conventions of mainstream publishing. Being an indie guarantees an author the special latitude to publish constructively, plus it comes with innovativeness.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am yet to know how.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Writing is escapism, cathartic and most notably therapeutic.
What do your fans mean to you?
The whole world. I like it when someone says "Hey, you that poet? Read your book!"
What are you working on next?
A novel. And as I said, far from conventional!
Who are your favorite authors?
Lee Child, Joseph Heller, Henry Denker, Sylvia Plath, Chimamanda, Chinua Achebe, Stephen King, Truman Capote, Mark Twain, J.K. Rowling, Ngugi wa Thiongo Jr, just to mention a few.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The enthusiasm to see myself an acclaimed author!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read. I read a lot. I read fiction a lot.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I google "100 best novels of the year", "best African-American novels of the year", "award winning novels", "best African novels", "best European/American novels", etc etc.

Nothing thrills the audience more than when they are watching what they can relate. "Eggshells" is a drama set in Ngaza, a fictional province in Kenya, and handles contemporary issues bedeviling Kenyan schools --universities to be specific. Footloose and fancyfree, the students, just as the highly educated professors, hide nothing of their animal feelings.
