Interview with Jason Christopher Gooding

When did you first start writing?
I've always been interested in exploring my creative side and started writing pretty early as a way to put a voice to my imagination. The first time I decided to utilize that creativity to sit down and write a book was when I was in the military. Now I've got the bug and really enjoy putting a good story to paper (learning about the process after the story is written, not so much!).
What is your writing process?
I decide on a rough rough idea for a story and start writing! Sometimes I stop and write different parts of the story if they come to me. The first draft is always a race to the end then I do re-writes to smooth it out. Sometimes the story takes on a completely different flavor depending on my mood or new ideas I might have for what I want the end result to be.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
So far I've used Facebook as my main marketing platform. I'm still learning about the ins and outs of marketing. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I always thought it would be fun to work towards making a living doing something I really like. Writing gives me the opportunity to do that with the added benefit of doing it wherever I want to lay my head at the moment. I love traveling so that added benefit is great.
