Interview with Michael Patrick Lewis

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My baby girl, who is one year old. Although, 'inspires' isn't really the word I would use. More like 'forces.' If it were up to me, I would stay in bed pretty much all day. Sleep is good, don't you think?
What is your writing process?
I vomit onto the page, and then clean up the ugly bits.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Effective? Let me know when you find a technique that's effective.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Catharsis.
What do your fans mean to you?
I have fans?
What are you working on next?
Getting a real job.
What do you read for pleasure?
I have two small children. Sorry, I don't have that luxury.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Blackberry Z10.

If you offered me $1000 to switch to an iPhone, I would punch you in the face.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Changing diapers, making snacks, and driving the kids to the park while trying to find time to send off resumes and calling possible job prospects.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yup. That was easy =)
