Interview with K. S. Bertram

What do you read for pleasure?
When I don't have the money, I'll go on the Amazon Kindle app on my phone and look up Paranormal/Supernatural stories from the lowest price up, and download the free ones; it'll range from Paranormal Teen Fiction, to Adult Horror. When I do have the money, I'll usually go for the popular Paranormal stories, no matter if they are romance or not.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
As of now, I'm caught reading on my Samsung Galaxy S5 (but I asked for a tablet for Christmas from the Hubby).
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing when I was nine or ten years old. My first ever story was about a dragon who could only blow bubbles and ended up saving the whole town from trolls that were weakened by water.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I've wanted to publish for years now, and don't have the time, patience or resources to go the traditional route. I like how much control I have with independent publishing.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is creating worlds and lives within stories.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean everything. I couldn't do the things I'm capable of without my fans, nor could I reach people the way I can without them.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Coffee, food and inevitably writing.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm usually at college, playing games, working, cuddling with my cats and dog, or spending time with my hubby--all while stuffing my face in between.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look through the free section of my reading apps.
How do you approach cover design?
I do all of my covers myself and believe I'm not too shabby.
