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
E-Myth
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...

SurviveTravel.com 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.
