Interview with Torch Hard

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy it because when I write feel as though I can entertain people and effect people, to either share ideas or simply see them enjoy the book. all I like to see is people enjoy the book.
What do your fans mean to you?
It means everything to me. if I don't have fans then I may as well not write! writing is to have people read my books and read them on E books or Printed books. and see them get enjoyment or gratification from it in any way. I hope I will get a lot of followers and fans I will give you free books!
What are you working on next?
Actually I am working on a long dreamed book I wished I could publish from when I was young kid about: 10 years old I wrote titled: River Jewel City escape(originally named: The escape from river city) and I will be working and am working on that one right now. I am going to revise, format it according to Smashwords rules and terms in the " meat grinder" methods so it will give the best reading experience possible to my readers. but as of now I will release short stories the keep my readers busy until my novel River Jewel City escape is released.after that I plan to bring you a series of mystery novels that I inspired from an obscure story titled: Jack Hamellete that I wrote as a Young kid, as I said in previous interview questions.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I just go on kind of a random pick. I just read what I find that interests me.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I do... it was actually poetry that I started with at the age of around 10 years old and wrote a few short poems around the same time I wrote The escape from River city(I later renamed it: River Jewel City escape) and at about 11 years old I began to write mystery novels I wrote an obscure one that was named: Jack Hamellete which I actually plan on Reviving back now and writing a mystery series close to it.
What is your writing process?
I just write and put down my ideas on paper then I revise then publish on computer.
How do you approach cover design?
Very important especially to get read, you must come across as not a sloppy writer that can't make his or her own cover. laziness is not called for when you are a writer, when you are writer you should be expected to be hardworking. not someone who cannot even put a cover on their book!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I like many books but I can name 5 off the bat:
Tales of Poe By Edgar Allan Poe
Sherlock Holmes By Arthur Conan Doyle
Goosebumps series by RL Stine( especially the first one of his titled:Welcome to Dead house)
Diary of Anne frank by Anne Frank
Hardy boys series( my favorite when I was a 10 year old) bah!!! that is why I wrote Jack Hamellete!
What do you read for pleasure?
Suspenseful books or any book that is so riveting that you question in your mind: what will happen next. but mostly in general I love all types of books.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle or Kobo reading services is my preference
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
None so far...I hope my books will impress people from Smashwords or anyone else will read my book. and I hope I will get good on my books that my Dear readers will enjoy them! all I can say is that I am not in it for money but just to entertain and amuse people with my books! my books will be free at least for now. I may have to charge money for my books eventually but am not really anxious about it...
