Interview with K. W. Lanford

Describe your desk
Hahaha. A lot of my writing is done on an iPhone 5.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Mansfield Texas. I honestly don't see how it has influenced me. I just like to tell stories.
When did you first start writing?
In 2012 I was looking for a book to read. All the series's I have read were either completed or I was waiting for the next book. Out of frustration really, I decided I would write my own book. That way when I got tired of waiting I had no one to blame but me!
What's the story behind your latest book?
It took way longer than it should have. I went through a rough patch for a while. Once I got my self back together, it took off.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
After I wrote my first book, obviously I wanted others to read it. I learned about self publishing on line. There weren't any hoops to jump through and I didn't have to "sell" my work to someone with thousands of manuscripts sitting on his/her desk. So I went for it.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am still new to smashwords. Let's give them a little time.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest part is when someone says "OMG! You wrote that?"
What do your fans mean to you?
When I get one I'll get back to ya!
What are you working on next?
I have already started book three. I am afraid some people are going to be upset about where book two ends. LoL. I had better get a head start.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Usually my bladder. . . Next
Who are your favorite authors?
Easy question. R.A. Salvatore is tops. Then Stephen King, Terry Goodkind and some new guy named K.W. Lanford hehehe
