Interview with Tim Miller

Who are your favorite authors?
Edward Lee, Bryan Smith and Jack Ketchum
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
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.
