Interview with Ronald Jacobson

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Writing is a cathartic experience for me. I try to write books that are informative but from a personal perspective. It is a way to share my views on life and perhaps give someone else a new perspective. i do not publish everything I write, some things are not meant for viewing, it is just my way of getting certain things out of my system, unless I feel it can help other people.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Knowing when I write it is a way for me to vent my issues and hopefully have other people benefit from my mistakes.
What do your fans mean to you?
I prefer not to think of the people that read my books as fan, it is more like sharing a point of view.
What are you working on next?
I just released my new book, Relationships, speak now or forever hold your peace. This book was the most personal book I have ever released. It may take some time to work up to my next book.
Who are your favorite authors?
Personally I like Biographies. It is not so much a favorite author, it is more about who is the focus of the biography. I like to read about history and the people that were responsible for what happened, such as presidents.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
That is an easy question, my daughters.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love movies, and my best movie buddy is my youngest daughter. She will go see anything with me.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Generally I look up biographies and see what i am in the mood for.
How do you approach cover design?
I simply think about what the book is about and fight a cover that enhances the topic. My new book is about relationships and the problems a couple needs to deal with. For that I used a caricature of a man and a woman fighting.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have an Ipad which has a nice huge screen for reading.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I find blogging very useful.
Describe your desk
I am not big on clutter, so I have my laptop, some pens and paper.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It is all about the difficulties of relationships. Why some marriages work, and many do not. I try to explain the reasons why relationships fail and if possible, how to avoid them. As a psychologist i had built in information, plus i also had my own marriage so i was also able to talk about many issues first hand.

In this book I discuss issues that many relationships will need to overcome in order to have a chance at succeeding. For instance, love does not conquer all. Be prepared for financial disagreements, problems with family and friends, work issues, household chores, and much more. This is an honest and a somewhat humorous look at relationships and how to prepare for it, or at least what to expect.
