Interview with Sully Masterson

What do you read for pleasure?
I read a little bit of everything, but I mostly enjoy erotica, and science fiction. How those two became my favorite genres to read, I haven't a clue. Lately though, I'm getting into more YA novels to try and be able to relate to my younger siblings who are now in their early teens and younger. Some of it's pretty interesting. Right now I've been told I had to read Divergent, so that'll be my next book.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Right now it's an iPad mini because it's light, easy to carry, and I can write random ideas that come to my head on it. I've been thinking about switching to a Microsoft tablet though.
Describe your desk
Anywhere there's a flat surface. Or my lap, which has a bit of cushion over the hard muscles.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Minnesota. I believe growing up in the Midwest had a huge influence because I never felt the need to write stereotypical things. I've always had an open mind growing up in such a diverse neighborhood that it allowed me to write real characters regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
When did you first start writing?
I first began writing at the tender age of three when I would wake my mother up in the morning, ask her for her breakfast order, then proceed to make it out of whatever was around. Good times.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest has yet to be published, but it's about two sisters competing as they always do. Now that they're older, most of their bets run in a sexual nature which causes some high stakes.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I didn't feel my voice was out there yet, so I decided to put it out there myself.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I think in a lot of ways, Smashwords has made me more aware of what I put out there, networking, and standing by my work. It doesn't all have to be a hit, but if it gets people interested, they'll stick around for more.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The feeling of finishing a first draft. After that, the rest is cake.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. Their word of mouth is my bread and butter.
What are you working on next?
It's a story titled Bet On Black. A young woman takes a bet that puts Jacob Black in the hot seat which he quite enjoys.
