Interview with petero wamala

Published 2019-02-23.
Why do you write?
Woow! I have been writing since high school, where i was one of the editors of the school magazine. I love to write especialy about issues for which a little more information, can make all the difference.Retirement, positive ageing, second act careers and limiting beliefs.
Do you get fatigue writing in the same subject area?
The beauty is that there is always a new angle to the same issue.For example, positive ageing for John may be radicaly different from that of David.Yet both John and David may achieve spectatular results, using different pathways.we can learn from both.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, vibrantat80, is really a call to return to basics as we age.The wisdom of our forefathers will serve as well as we advance in age.The best " secrets" of living vibrantly to a ripe old age, are no secrets at all.Longevity is not by chance but by choice.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The reader is ultimately the best judge.
The technology revolution has enable literaly thousands of people to get out their work, some with outstounding results.Without indie, all these people would have gone to the grave with their books in them.It is so motivating.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Iam new to smashwords but really liking it already.For example iam excited about turning one of my books into an audio book.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Criticism.I love criticism- it helps me become a better writer.I even thrive on negative criticism! Out there are people eager to find out what is wrong with every book.I love to give them something to critic.Without aspiring writers, how could they utilise their talent?
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean everything.
What are you working on next?
Not so fast! I have just finished vibrantat80.Three years of a labour of love.Iam taking a brief break!!
Who are your favorite authors?
1.Richard Dawkins
2.Donald Trump
3.Norman vincent Peale
4.Sam Harris
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My nine year old son
I want the best for him.
