What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Describe your desk
It is sometimes simply my laptop on my knee in the lounge. However, I now do audio recordings for many of my own books, so I also have an office set up, in a quiet area of the house, for recordings; which is great fun!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Self publishing gives us all the opportunity to express ourselves and get our message out to the world. In my case, that message is, well, a bit naughty but I hope I bring people pleasure and make them happy!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Seeing my thoughts develop on the page and then hearing that others enjoy them.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything! I don't write for myself, I want to bring pleasure to as many people as I can
What are you working on next?
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has allowed me to publish across multiple platforms with minimal effort. This allows me to spend more time doing what I love - writing!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children and my work.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
With my family, playing sport and researching my writing! Not always in that order!
How do you approach cover design?
In collaboration with the writing. I often find a picture I like and that takes the story in a slightly different direction! I have a fabulous art work designer who takes the pictures I choose and turns them into fantastic cover works.
