Interview with Mark Bailey

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing after I graduated high school in 2010.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It tells the tale of some personal anxiety issues I suffer from.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My favorite part of writing is the feeling after pouring out my emotions into the writing.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has given me the start I needed to really start my writing career.
What are you working on next?
Next, I plan to delve into a fantasy tale pitting two gods from different mythologies against each other.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are Stephen King and Neil Shusterman.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I get out of bed with the desire to improve my craft and meet others.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time watching tv shows such as Death Note. I also am spending most of my free time reading "Scythe" by Neal Shusterman.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I browse Amazon's booklist.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I've been telling stories for years. So long that my first work escapes my memory.
What is your writing process?
When writing, I begin by putting all my thoughts onto the paper. Then, after a nice cup of coffee and a deep breath, I sit back down and treat it like an unfinished puzzle and put the pieces together.
