Interview with Alex Buenafe

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
In my case writing training manuals, sharing years of professional even life experience with the readers.
Who are your favorite authors?
For non-fiction, Niall Ferguson, Jacob Bronowski for their contribution to making difficult concepts simple. And James Bradley for making historical events entertaining and readable.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Ideas.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Browsing through online catalogues, depending on time or interest of the day.
What is your writing process?
As an instructional writer, lecturer, a power point story board is where I start. It gives me the structure, then just follow it like the yellow brick broad.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Blackberry Playbook which I find compact, but big enough to read text and carry around.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has given me access to a bigger world for my publications, otherwise I would not reach.
