Interview with Trevor Panasiuk

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Success is still coming, I hope. Smashwords has given me a lot of tools and ideas that I would never of thought of in order to help promote my book/
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Finding out what happens next. When I write, it is as though I am watching a movie and reporting back on what I see. Quite often my characters actions will surprise me.
What do your fans mean to you?
The fans are why I write. There is no point in telling a story, if no one is listening.
What are you working on next?
I have a second book in the "Nowhere" series that should be out in March.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I live with my wife, son, step-son, his wife and two grandchildren. The challenge is finding time to write!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do. I still have a copy of it around here somewhere. I was in Grade 2 and wrote a picture book called Batter up. I like to think my skills have progressed some since then.
What is your writing process?
Like that song you can't get out of your head, I get a sentence stuck there. Once I write it down, I close my else and see what happens next. Sometimes it is even interesting.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
We used to have a cabin about 3 hours from where we lived. When I was young, my parents bought me the Hardy Boys mysteries series. I used to curl up in the back of the station wagon and read one on the way there. It made the trip fly by.
What do you read for pleasure?
Almost anything really. I love sci-fi, fantasy, thriller and of course crime drama.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a few devices that I can use to read on, but since my phone and I are inseparable, I usually use that.
