Interview with J.J. Poland

How do you approach cover design?
It was difficult. I still think I need to do it different...
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grow up in big city. It helps yo write about luxury life but that's it.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My phone and tablet
What motivated you to become an indie author?
to share my talent with people
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't have fans among English readers yet, but I have lot of fans, who wait for next chapter in Russian. It's always nice to know, somebody waiting to read continue of the story,
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I like life and people
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
By annotation. I like it...i read it.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I think it was Bertrice Small
What do you read for pleasure?
Describe your desk
it's a mess
What's the story behind your latest book?
love story, as always
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I read somewhere....Writing - it's pleasure for your soul. You create world, characters, emotions.
Who are your favorite authors?
I don't have ones
What is your writing process?
It's always difficult. I don't know, how people can write 8 hours straight. Unless, they smoke something. Then, it's a different story.
Writing process - it's lot of stress, headache and "I don't know how to finish it" thoughts.
There are two ways:
1. You have ideas and inspiration.
2. You write because you have to.
First one - best one. You have ideas, time, inspiration and you simply write.
Second one - you have nothing, but you need to write, because fans are waiting. This is where headache starts. You delete and re-write every sentence and word. You think about lot of things and they don't belong to slot. You hate yourself. You feel miserable.
