Interview with J. M. Schroder

What is your writing process?
I write from a very rough outline. And then go from there. It is a long process for me at times. I can have the whole story planned out in my head but then my voices get so over powering and just want to take it from there. I know I should not fight them. I should just go with it. But I am the one telling the story.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It might not be the first one I read, but the first one that had an impact on me. It was Anne Rice's, Interview with a Vampire. OMG, my love of reading and writing started that day.
How do you approach cover design?
I let my lovely cover artist have the reins.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. Anne Rice Interview with a Vampire. Because that is where my love reading and writing began.
2. J.R. Ward - Dark Lover - it brought me into a world that I love and look forward to returning to on a regular basis.
3. Yasmine Galenorns Witchling Introduced me to a very strong woman and very strong women characters.
4. Sherrilyn Kenyon Fantasy lover I have dark hunters now.
5. Maggie Shaynes Love Bites. I met an awesome woman by reading and getting into this series. Maggie is a beautiful woman with a very beautiful talent of story telling.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read paranormal and erotica/BDSM they keep me entertained and it is what I enjoy
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle or Nook I have both
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Word of mouth and street team support.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Oregon, in the Willamette Valley and that is the area I write about.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing since a very young age. I love to write. I might not get it right all the time but it is a therapy for me.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The bible.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like to have control over my covers, my editors, my story.
