Interview with Ludovic Gaillard

What are you working on next?
Several projects are currently on-going. I am working on a new book concerning the QC inspection preparation but also on a mobile application dedicated to inspectors.
My first objective is to complete the QCLeaks website before to offer the futur Ebook and applications.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I discovered Ebooks during one of my business travel. Normally I prefered to read paper books but unfortunately, at time of my trip, I forgot my book so I purchase it under Ebook format. The use of this format appeared so simple to use and so easy to bring all my book everywhere that I decide to switch definitively on this reading format.
What is your writing process?
In fact, it is a bit long. Before to start any writing, I think a lot to a problem that I met and that I want to solve. This period could be very long... sometimes several weeks on months. Suddenly, Using Scrivener software, I write the complet book in few days. Once again I spend several weeks to correct it.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot of style of book but curiously, I like to read technical manuals...
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I read my ebooks on Ipad. It is the best support for me. I can install all the reading system and format but also use this material for other use. As I am travel a lot, it is currently the better system I found.
When did you first start writing?
I always like to write. Kid, I wrote small stories but each time I need to take an important decision, I write it like a beginning of an adventure. Often, the solution comes with the chapters I write.
I decided to write training manual last year after a bad experience with one of my supplier who finally ask me to train him on a particular subject. From 1 year now I write training books.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Simply the miss of book on the subject I looking for. Moreover, the so easy tools offered by Smashword for instance permit to everyone to propose his personal production.
How do you approach cover design?
For training books... Simple, direct and efficient.
