Getting the chance to be home doing what I love and interacting with my readers
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I like to read and watch whatever horror films I can find
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look at recommendations through Amazon as well as things I see my friends reading.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember I was maybe six when I wrote it, but not much else
What is your writing process?
I do about 1000-2000 words a day. Sometimes I pound it all out in one sitting, others I just peck away at it. Whatever is working best for me that day.
How do you approach cover design?
Usually when I'm writing I get an idea for a concept. Such as a theme or scene from the story I think would fit on the cover.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot of horror and extreme horror. I guess its just what I enjoy. That and I get bored easily so it keeps my mind moving.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Kindle Fire HDX
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Mostly Twitter, Facebook and Google+. It varies what is working best at which time. For a long time it was mostly Facebook, but now they have so many restrictions and rules its hard to even get your posts seen there. Google + is nice, but not many people use it. Twitter has been great for networking.
Describe your desk
Its just a recliner with a TV stand in front of me
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'd been with some small presses before, and I didn't like my work being at the mercy of someone else. So I gave indie publishing a try.
