Interview with Peter Adewumi

What's the story behind your latest book?
Virtues for Riches is a powerful book, just because, it has been proof-read by many readers. I have used many of the topics here as posts on my blog and the reactions have been awesome: the views, the likes, the pingbacks and the comments.
These are some of the comments from some intelligent and respected readers that mount pressures on me, and compel me to re-compile and publish this book:
I really love this post, people really have to read and learn from this.... Some people pray for luck and money and they never work, it’s so sad of them – theviolasdiary On “Does Luck Exist”.
Yes to your words, yes to love and yes and yes!!! Great post! – Oristel Guenael On “Love Conquers the World”
I agree with you.... One can get something by luck, but for how long? – Masarora on “Does Luck Exist?
Very well said! – Train Today to Reap Tomorrow on “Does Luck exist?”
Thanks for sharing the positive post! – Eddaz on “Some Decisions Cannot be Postponed”
.... Thank you for a lovely reminder to bloom where you are planted – Elizabeth on “Open Your Eyes Vividly, There Are Opportunities Where You Are.”
That’s a good post and I like your visual aptly title – Vinneve on “Open Your Eyes Vividly, There are Opportunities Where You Are.”
.... You have just inspired me to look for opportunities where I am instead of wanting what others have. Thank you! – beaconsoflife on “Open Your Eyes Vividly, There are Opportunities Where You Are.”
This post reminds me of the importance of understanding the difference between being an “entrepreneur” and “unemployed”.... Very motivating! – truedoesit on “Open Your Eyes Vividly, There are Opportunities Where You Are.”
... and so on and so forth. Read on and enjoy!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I thank Almighty father for making it possible for me to publish this book. I don’t have it in mind to publish it. I was just studying for my own personal consumption – but the word of the Lord came, “The Lord gave the Word: great was the company of those that published it.” (Psalms 68:11). That was how the inspiration to publish books was born. Glory and honour be to His name. This is my third book, I would publish the first two on this platform, when they are removed from KDP on Amazon.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I was motivated to publish when I learnt about the wide distribution, and how easy to publish on the platform, if and only you follow the guidelines. Hence, Smashwords has made my works and writings to be more available to more readers.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is to impact people, I have many books in my library about 200 hard copies, and more than a hundred electronic books that have impacted my life positively. Hence, I deem it to also write in order to impact others.
What do your fans mean to you?
I dedicate the little progress have already made to all my fans and impending readers. I always acknowledge all readers in my books, in fact, in all the three books I have written, I give them kudos. I want to say they should not relent in reading, just because, readers are potential authors. I appreciate them; without readers, there can never be authors. I say big "thank you" to all readers out there for the yeoman's job they are doing.
What are you working on next?
I have already published two books: "Attributes of Successful Employees," and "The End Matters Most: The Journey into a Glorious Destiny." Virtues for Riches (Motivational Series - Volume 1) is the third one, and it is the first of the Motivational Series. I am already working on the Volume 2, which is also going to be very powerful.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorites authors are Robert KIyosaki, George S. Clason, Napoleon Hill, David Oyedepo, and many more.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowledge! I want to study so that I would be able to get inspiration to write. If you don't read, you cannot write. The pieces information you have "eaten" from other authors are what you digest, and your brain process to bring new pieces of information.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, I am reading. To guard against being bored, I do play football, Table tennis, Scrabble and Chess.
