Привычка.
The habit.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Читаю.
I'm reading.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Я сразу начал писать свой "Азиатский роман".
I immediately began to write my "Asian love affair."
What is your writing process?
Идея, сюжетная линия, сцены. Пишу когда бывает вдохновение.
The idea, the story line, the scenes. I write when there is inspiration.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Помню, мне было 7 лет. С той поры я стал заядлым и всеядным читателем.

Describe your desk
There is nothing on my table. Excessive. Monitor, keyboard, printer and scanner, two lockers and two shelves for the right things.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the Sayan Mountains on the Yenisei River. Affected directly, it is good to write about what you experienced yourself.
When did you first start writing?
When I felt the weight (heaviness) of the experience.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Over the next books I work. This is about the Russian police and crime in the Russian government.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Easy to publish. There is no dependence and censorship.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has made my book accessible all over the world.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To write is not only joy, it is also torment.
What do your fans mean to you?
They give me fame, I really love them (fans :))). I have the right orientation.
What are you working on next?
I spoke about this above: about the Russian police and crime.
Who are your favorite authors?
I listed them above.
How do you approach cover design?
I do it myself. In my opinion, not bad. And what do you think?
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Questions began to be repeated. Sorry, maybe it seems to me because of not knowing English.

Do you like my book "Asian love affair"?
