Interview with Honey Wagon

Published 2013-12-21.
What are you working on next?
I'm always working on something different and this answer is changing every day. For a more precise answer, stick around for a day or two and see for yourself!
Who are your favorite authors?
I try to avoid reading too many works by other authors in an attempt to preserve the uniqueness of my own work. I'm a little bit paranoid about being too inspired by someone else's work, that I end up making something untrue to myself.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When I get out of bed, the only thing I can think about is a wet... Steamy... Dripping... Shower.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I like to spend my time with my dogs or drinking wine with a Leafs game. Go Leafs Go!
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Smashwords, of course!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I'm pretty sure I was writing before I was speaking, as strange as that sounds. Some of my earliest memories are of me writing. Nothing as sexy as the work I'm doing now, though.
What is your writing process?
I write and write and write and then I write. I will write anywhere from 6000 to 12,000 words a day. My writing comes out initially as a stream of consciousness as my brain tells me the story. Then, I go back the next day and re-work everything. I try to maintain this word count every single day, seven days a week, seven hundred days a year! ;)
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I was more inspired by music and film as a child, and would use that as inspiration for my work. I believe the first story I ever read was the first Narnia book, and I remember finding myself very scared reading it. The way the author used words to create tension was quite impressive. The power of literature is an incredible thing.
How do you approach cover design?
I do all my own cover design. I dig through website after website of stock images then I take those images into Photoshop and begin to manipulate them. I have a degree in Creative Writing and I have a technical diploma in Digital Design. I feel like I have a pretty good knack for it.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
This is something I'm still discovering. So far, I just use Twitter and that's done alright for me. I honestly just keep writing and writing and hopefully having an extra book on the shelf will do more for me than 1000 tweets. That's my theory, anyway. I'll let you know how that goes.
Describe your desk
It's organized. I have my second monitor on one side and a lovely lamp I bought recently on the other. There's a little shelf about a foot above my desk that has all my stationary on it, as well as my writing award. The only problem with my desk is that I still go sit on the couch to write.
