Interview with (Jasselin) Joseph G. Asselin

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Having a sailboat is taking a lot of my time, but on the other side, it opens my mind to so many ideas.
What is your writing process?
First, like fishing, I let the idea growing for a while, then I write notes, I let the story building itself in my mind. I always have a few stories pending, half done, waiting to have time to write them.
How do you approach cover design?
I was a newspaper publisher since 1979 and at that time everything was created by hand, so, with computers, everything is so easy.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
In the past, I was a professional marketer for my customers, but for myself, I'm really lazy, because I'm not writing to sell books, I write for it is my way to help, because I wouldn't be able to sleep without emptying my mind.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up North, in a French Canadian country lifestyle. I always like to help, it's my character.
When did you first start writing?
Since my childhood, I have always been writing and inventing songs.
What's the story behind your latest book?
This book is special for me because so many of my friends and family members died because of smoking, so I have made extensive researches in the goal to help to quit smoking marijuana by instead drinking or eating edibles.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Helping, even since I was newspaper and farm magazines publisher
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I'm a naturally happy man, so, each day is a discovery for doing something I'll feel, like music or writing, or working on my boat.
What do you read for pleasure?
The thought of the day.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My laptop, because of the big screen.
You'r writing in different s languages, no?
Yes, my primary mother language is French and English I've always have spoken, but as a second language. I speak and write Spanish and I can explain myself in Italian and Portuguese.
When is your best time for writing?
Very early in the morning and I believe that I'll always be writing, it's in my gene...
Thanks for reading me!
