Interview with Sam Fury

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Being an independent author mean I have no-one to answer to. It is (to me) the best kind of slef-employment. With most other types you still have to answer to customer demands. The only person I really have to show up for work for is myself.
How do you approach cover design?
I hire someone to do it for me.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
How to Win Friends and Influence People
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
How to Think Like Leonardo Divinci
Think and Grow Rich

I believe everyone should read these books AT LEAST once. I have them as audio books and just repeat them.
What do you read for pleasure?
It is very rare I read for pleasure. I am usually either researching or writing.

I was on a really long train ride recently and read Of Mice and Men and Animal Farm. Nice, short classics. I really enjoyed them.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My tablet.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I don't really track what techniques work... does my marketing for me.
Describe your desk
It's always different.. I am a traveler.
When did you first start writing?
I published my first book only a few years ago.
