Interview with Dominik Marcel Kirtaime

Who are your favorite authors?
My favourites have always been Herbert, King and Koontz.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Fishing - I can really forget everything else when I can cast out at the lake.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
When I search for ebooks it is never for a particular author - I always buy ebooks spontaneously.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh that one is easy as to date I have only written The Perennial Migration. A sequel is potentially in the making - but I will let fans of this book decide: If they want a sequel I will write it.
What is your writing process?
I thought about sketching first but I’m not much of an artist so I settled for thinking about one character at a time. Before I started with the storyline, I had in writing a profile of each main character apart from Demla, one of the female forest folk sentries, who came into the story later on. I did not use a whiteboard, but instead used my little electronic netbork for typing. I enjoy taking the netbook and writing while travelling on the train.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle
Describe your desk
Very small. A 1-metre wide glass top computer desk. I need a clear desk when writing.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the countryside. As children we were always out on adventures. Even though the childhood adventures ceased upon adulthood the creativity continued and found a vent many years later in writing.
When did you first start writing?
In 2013 the first draft of the story commenced.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The year is 3010, the human race divided; the new breed living inside the World Administration dome network and outside the older breed. A pandemic, broken out throughout the dome network by a corrosion in the citizens' wrist chips, is causing the planet to die. Whether the outbreak was accidental or intentional, either way the reptilian race stood to gain from such an apocalypse.

With most metal resources now the property of the World Administration, survival of man, beast and plant will depend on such life forms working together; and the leniency of our galaxy controllers.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Without the opportunity to self-publish as an indie author I probably would never have finished or even started writing my book.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Well I am very optimistic about Smashwords. They were recommended by other Indie Authors and I am very pleased to now have The Perennial Migration promoted there.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
100% Freedom
What do your fans mean to you?
For me a fan is the ultimate recognition for the published work. I value every reader of my book - To bring the story to life that will be done by the fans - As the author I have made the foundation.
