Interview with Ashley Fruik

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
That all my dreams and ideas all come too life. And that I can bring them too life and share them that all ive ever wanted.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I enjoy writing and there no reason why I should keep all my dreams and ideas too myself. That why am an Indie author. I enjoy writing and my dream is too actually turn it into a career . All I want is too share and for other's too enjoy.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
When I had decide I wanted my work to be published, I did loads of research. Ebook's were the new thing and there is alot of company's that do ebook publishing. I no don't joke around I had a note book full of notes and when I did my research into Smashwords along with other company's. There was no competition when you line up everything Smashwords has to offer compared too others. Then I was sold, I can't say much about my success yet my first book only been publish for 48hours so fair, keep holding my breath :)
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story, hmh that a tough one, not something perhaps I like to think about much anymore. But, my family was going though a hard time during my senior year of high school. And I need too lose my self somewhere, where I found myself. I find my writing's arn't just story's they are my diaries, they are more apart of me then anything else I own.
Describe your desk
My desk, oh god. Well it kinda a mess if am not writing, am gaming hardcore on my xbox or pc. So you can image beside a stack of paperwork I have gum,coupons and a cup or two. Seem like even with me cleaning it everyday by the end of the day it a big mess again. But, I truly love my desk.
When did you first start writing?
I can't really recall when I started maybe in elementary school, they had this book club that came by two times a year. And I had my eye on a little dog diary, took me a half of a year too save up the money but, perhaps that when it really started. But, I really started big time during my freshmen year in high school. I was a very shy girl back then, so you can image I really didn't have friends. Well between that and being bored it just started. I actually am working on editing a book series I wrote during then took me 4 years and I finished the set my senior year. I can not tell you how happy I was when I final finished writing that series.
What are you working on next?
I'ma working on the next book to the unnamed series along with edit my first book series I ever wrote but, that will take some time.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Oh dear that an awful question, well either time with the family or cleaning. On my free time I play computer games or on my xbox one .
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I can't say i do. But, I do remember my first book series
How do you approach cover design?
With each cover design I try and put myself into it. My cover for The unnamed is actuality a picture of myself, took me awhile to get it. But, am very happy with the result.
