Interview with Jude Masters

What is your writing process?
My writing process is basically just to write whenever the mood strikes me. Sometimes that means writing about 100 words in four days and other times that means writing a whole chapter during my downtime at work one day. It just isn't going to be good unless I'm in the writing zone.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read A LOT of Vonnegut. I've read nearly everything by him. He's definitely my favorite author. I'm also into reading the classics right now. I've got a huge list of all the ones I've yet to read.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
my kindle paperwhite
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Making stuff free is the best way. Give the people a sample. If they're into it, they might come back for more.
Describe your desk
I write on the floor or on my bed like a savage. I have no desk.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I think it's what motivates most people: I don't have a project solid enough to sell to a traditional publisher yet.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a full length novel right now. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but there's going to be mermaids and scientists. But because that's more of a long term thing, I'll probably produce a few more short stories before that comes out.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are so important to me. They inspire me to keep writing, because I know I'd be too disheartened to continue if I felt like no one cared.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
coffee
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Working. I'm a bit of a workaholic.
