Interview with Christopher Kite

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I spun was during a cold and windy afternoon. The school lunch was nothing to remember and recess consist of parking all the kids in the school auditorium to watch a bright loud cartoon, or those old movies that get replay and haunts the background of childhood memories. I was sitting next to a friend both of us bored out of our minds. Gossip about classmates, teachers and school was rehash. So I decided to tell a story that I was thinking about over the weekend. It had death murder and mystery and made my dear friend scared of sitting near me in the dark
What is your writing process?
I try to write everyday, and strange things I learn or hear I store in my brain where it mixes with all the things that happen in life
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No I don't remember the first story I've ever heard, but going back to my earliest memories fables of dark forests, gods of thunder and fires and fantastic beasts bearing gifts of cunning and wisdom color my childhood and made me a lover of tales.
How do you approach cover design?
I usually try to imagine how the story would look if it came to life. The shadow and different effects on a cover are integral to a beautiful cover.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like all genres a good story told with great characters compelling plot and a journey is what I look for. That's why I gravitate towards fantasy and sci fic. The mind is unleash and the imagination is allowed to roam free.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use my ereader since the screen doesn't hurt my eyes like tablets and computer screens.
When did you first start writing?
I began writing when I was a kid then got more serious in my teen years and ever since have been polishing my field.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Being an independent author gives my the freedom to write in any style or genre, with traditional publishing its a slower process to get published, and unconventional styles are not appreciated since traditional published can be very old fashion, I feel my writing would have be forced into a box and the editors would take out too much.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It allows the stories in my head to become real and breathe in the world.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The sunshine and all the unexpected things that can happen for life is ever changing.
