Interview with Meno Silencio

Describe your desk
A wasteland of untidy and unstable stacks of papers and books.
When did you first start writing?
Very early on. I was probably (my memory is a little foggy) around eight or nine when I started creating my own worlds, with sets of characters and small story lines. I loved how I could escape into it and experience something new, just as I had when reading books, only this time I was the one in control.

I still love that aspect of escapism. When I'm going through a really rough time I tend to get a lot of writing done (but not editing hehe). So if you notice that I've suddenly published five novels in a year, I'm probably falling off the face of the earth.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book ('Three Threesomes for the Price of One', which is not up as I answer this question, but will be at the end of the week), is really just an exercise in enjoyment. I wanted to write something that might make people smile, maybe even laugh. So I went for lighthearted through and through, mixed of course with my signature weird and morbid style.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
How slow traditional publishing is. I have stories coming out of my ears. If I waited and tried to place each of these stories/novels/collections of short stories, with a traditional publisher, I'd be old, grey, and probably dead before I got them all published.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. I'm constantly amazed that people even visit/follow my blog, and sometimes even like my posts. Every once in a while I get a compliment thrown my way too, and I can barely believe it. It just feels so good to be able to entertain other people with my writing.
What are you working on next?
My first novel, 'the blackwater witch', which is an erotic horror novel (emphasis on the horror). I hope to have it out next year.
