Interview with Igor Comunale

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I read that I can remember was an episode of "Chose you adventure", a book with multiple stories and choices to make that could change the outcome of the book.
How do you approach cover design?
If I can I look for some good illustrator and choose with him the best cover to design. I think it's important to search for professional advice.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
"The Lord of the Rings" because it's my favourite fantasy book.
"Dracula" for the dark and gothic atmosphere.
"It" becaus it's a damned masterpiece.
"A Song of Ice and Fire" for its complexity.
All the stories by Lovecraft for the author's philosophical and scientific theories.
What do you read for pleasure?
Every kind of fantasy, horror or sci-fi books!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I'm using iPad because I like very much how the screen is simply... big!
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Internet marketing.
Describe your desk
My desk is always full of strange things. At this time I have here two fake horns, two witch noses, pencils, pens all around!
When did you first start writing?
When I was ten.
What's the story behind your latest book?
