Interview with Joseph G. Dubois

When did you first start writing?
My love for writing came very early in my life, in Elementary School (or "Primary School" in Haiti), where I was groomed and trained about how to write, about how to think constructively, and where I started writing basic assigned essays (called "Redaction" in French, and at the "Primary School" Level).
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I got my motivation from the desire to share what matters very importantly to me, i.e., Sharing the Love of God with others, and Laying the Ground Work for lay people to understand a little bit more about becoming a Christian, and also what it entails.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story is to Express Gratitude to God and to my Reader, to Show Appreciation to my Reader, to Share God's Love to my Reader. The book also represents a very convenient tool, and constitutes a Reaching-out Endeavor.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy is to know that I am communicating with my Reader something that is very dear and genuine to me. It is also the joy of knowing that what I share is accepted and received to its real, its authentic, and its essential value.
What do your fans mean to you?
My Fans are my Great Friends and my Great Connections that I value, and that I treasure. I have a Great Respect, and the Utmost Appreciation for my Fans. They are the reason for my inspiration, and they motivate my desire to share the Best and the Quintessence of my knowledge, of my belief, and of my findings with them.
What are you working on next?
I am a proponent of Continuous Improvement. Thanks to the power and to the flexibility that technology provides. I am preparing the update and the upgrade that will become available at the appropriate time.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I am inspired by the fact that each day is a brand new, a unique, and a blessed day, full of hope, full of life, full of opportunities to learn, to produce, to add flavor to my environment, and to make a difference. I am always on a Thanksgiving mode towards God for granting me another day to live on Earth. I am always grateful to have the privilege, the honor, and the opportunity to interact with fellow human beings for our mutual good, and with my environment that is a gift from God. I love life. I nurture and I cherish all the great and beautiful things that life has to offer to make me a greater and a better person.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, I mostly spend my time reading, digging for information, doing research, listening to music, or listening to the news, watching educational or entertaining videos, reading the Bible. I like the fact of constantly receiving news alerts, either on my phone or in my inbox, that are being dispensed or delivered by the different Apps or by the Subscriptions that I carefully select. That allows me, to some extent, to remain informed and updated about the latest news and about the latest developments happening around me and around the world
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discover the ebooks I read in multiple ways: through suggestions from articles and reports, through word of mouth and sharing by others, through recommendations by Publishers, and through browsing the Smashwords ebook publications.
What is your writing process?
My writing process is spontaneous, and my inspiration flows profusely from start to finish for each chapter, for each topic. The full body, the whole text of each topic, is done in one sitting. I then go back to read, to edit, to update, to upgrade in the subsequent phase. Until the text is officially published, and several times after the text is published, I still go back to reread and to review the body of the text, and also to make corrections, adjustments, and changes as required.
How do you approach cover design?
Besides the intensive content work itself, cover design is one of the most delicate and the most complex component of the book package. It requires a lot of pondering, and a lot of searching. It also demands a deep introspection from the author, and a substantial insight into the content of the work with respect to the overall presentation and representation of the work. It is, in the end, the face of the whole work, and the marketing image of the publication. It should be chosen very carefully as the final outcome is the tangible reflection of the work, encapsulates the essence of the work, and constitutes the individual expression of the writer / author that conveys his/her genuine vision to the Reader.
