Interview with Benedikte Eva

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Sometimes the thought of a great cup of coffee. Sometimes an amazing dream I dreamed I really want to write on my blog. Sometimes the sun shining through my Windows. Sometimes the people that I love. Sometimes ideas for painting, books, videos or music.

Always life, love and inspiration.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Spending time with Family. Walking on the Beach. Singing and playing music. Painting, daydreaming. Doing magic. And then of course the practical stuff that needs to be done.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Facebook collegues share their Work with me.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do not remember which was the first, but it was probably one of my essays in school. I wrote a story in seventh grade. It was a story about 200 years of the life of a house. Another story was about the search for a new Earth, because the old one was to polluted.
What is your writing process?
When I write non-fiction I structure the Things I want to write and then sit myself Down for 3 hours a day until I have fulfilled on that structure. When I write fiction I sit Down and see what comes up, and kind of half write, half live in the reality I am creating.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It was a story of a boy and his dog taking a walk. I was in the 1.grade and had borrowed the book on the library. As I read this small story, all the letters suddenly changed into Words and became almost a movie, in my mind. That was when I learned to read. I hid the book in a plastic chair instead of giving it back to the library, and I also hid the fact that I coud acutally read for 2 full months.
How do you approach cover design?
Useally use a cover creation Tool and my own paintings.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' by Douglas Adams, because it is a wonderful mixture of science fiction and humor.
'Watership Down' by Richard Adams. I read it 9 times when I was 8 and for 1 year or so I pretended to be a rabbit. I even ate grass (which taste really awfull).
'Book of Magic in Practice' by me. I can always trust it to give me inspiration in the ongoing creation of my life.
'The Celestine Prophecy' great description of what goes on between people and how to do something about it.
All the Seth books by Seth' Jane Roberts and Robert F. Butts. Very insightful
What do you read for pleasure?
Science Fiction and fantasy novels.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My computer but mostly because I don't yet have an e-bookreader.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
So far none. I hope this helps :-)
Describe your desk
Messy and overloaded. A keyboard to make music with, documents all over the desk, different cables to connect the computer to different gadgets. Hmm that was not a description of my desk just what is on top of it. It is a long desk made out of light Beach, with White legs.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The facts that It just takes to long and is to expensive with established Publishers. And I really like to be in control of my own Work.
What are you working on next?
'Book of Abundance - Magical Contact Lenses 3' and 'Lose the Fat Spell - and Run for Fun'.
I am also trying to get the time to make a e-learning course but I need Money to buy equipment and time. You can either support me here with Work grant donation: or by buying any of my books.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Denmark not far from Copenhagen. ´This gave me ample opportunity to write.
