Interview with Myron Shindler

What is your writing process?
I begin with an outline of the complete story. I make sure all the elements of the story are present then I fill in the scenes I need to make the story happen.
How do you approach cover design?
I have a designer that does my covers. I think it is important to have a professional do them so they look well for your genre.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use a Kindle just because that is what my wife started with and then we added mine to her account and can share books.
What are you working on next?
I am finishing up Starlight Station which will be book 3 in the Rhon Lassting Adventure then I am making a new series in a new universe.
The first book title is: Elite Space Courier. It is a Kroy Danner Adventure, he is the protagonist and hero of this adventure. Danner is an ex-space marine that has spent the last 5 years in the 'Alien Wars'. When the war is over Danner finds himself back on his home planet trying to stay sane.
What do you read for pleasure?
I just finished reading Michael Wiseman's 'The White Tower.' It is a fantasy about magic and sword play.
Describe your desk
My desk is always a mess and it is never big enough.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Starlight Station is the third book in the Rhon Lassting Adventure. It finally ties together how the Earth will be getting out into space. It is a difficult time for everyone. Rhon thought the first people would come into Translight Nation as immigrants but they are coming in a refugees.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I don't think you should have to answer to anyone about the story you have inside of you. That is how I feel about traditional publishing.
Being an Indie means having the freedom to express yourself as well as you know how at the moment and let your readers decide if they like it not your publisher.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I want to thank Smashwords for giving me the opportunity to put my books out on such a wide platform. It would not be possible to do this myself.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is just letting yourself go and flow with your keyboard not worrying about any editing at the moment but just letting everything out that you have to say about that for the moment.
