Interview with Tod Eten

Who are your favorite authors?
I have read every one of Douglas Adam's and Terry Pratchett's books, Tom Sharpe also tickled me. On a more serious note I also like Clive Barker, Iain M Banks and Anne McCafferty. My most often read book is Lord Of The Rings by Tolkien.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Being alive I guess, I've never been a late riser. I usually have things I plan to do for the day already set in my mind which focuses my mind.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I can't! I know I wrote a number of stories many years ago none of which were ever finished because I just didn't think they were any good.
What is your writing process?
I start off with an idea and try to create a basic structure to the story but as I start writing the story takes on a life a its own taking me down paths I never thought of at the start, which makes it more fun to write.
How do you approach cover design?
I just like to make them as dramatic and eye catching as i can.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I guess that would be a tablet or PC but to be honest I still prefer reading from a book.
Describe your desk
My desk grows gradually more messy over time, bit of paper with notes and references etc.. Then I get to a point where I can't stand it anymore and clean the desk so it is completely clear and the whole things starts over again.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in my thirties.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I was fascinated with the theories some people had about 2012 and Planet X this really is the inspiration for the storey.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like writing and it's a great feeling to actually finish a book.
