Interview with Colton Hardusty

Published 2022-12-23.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Well, it pushed me to take the final steps to actually publishing my work. Now people will be able to see it and read it.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I like creating new worlds and situations. I don't believe that "all the stories have been told before" as the saying goes and so being able to create characters and let them sort of interact with each other is wonderful.
What do your fans mean to you?
I once had a writing professor say that "we are writers because we write and because we show it to people." He meant that you can write all day, but if you hide it in your closet, then it's like it never existed at all.
Who are your favorite authors?
Philip K Dick, HP Lovecraft, Rawlyrawls, John Stakely, Andrej Sapkowski, David Robbins, Neil Gaiman, Alan Morrison, Robert Heinlein, and LateStageInfernalism
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
A sense of responsibility. I have two dogs that need food, water, a walk, and love. To give them those things, I need to work.

Then I also get hungry and food costs money, so again, I have to get up, eat, and then go buy more food.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I actually do a decent amount of reading and playing tabletop rpgs.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually through google searches actually. I just google what I want to read and then look at my options.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. My mom still has it. It was called "crabs" and it was about a little crab doing crab things. I've always enjoyed writing.
What is your writing process?
Drink an energy, put on some sounds in the background, and tap away at my device. I often stop to vape or eat, and as I do, I act out the things I'm writing in my mind. Then I sit back down and punch out those scenes.
How do you approach cover design?
I think about what kind of image I want to be the first thing people see and then I think about how to get that image. After that, I pull the image into Affinity Publisher, and begin adding the overlay text.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
John Stakely's Vampire$
Robert Heinleins Double Star
HP Lovecraft's Thing on the Doorstep
Neil Gaiman's American Gods
Philip K Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
