Interview with Dr. Tony Mariot

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I do research and write for the Oxford University, Oxford press and Wikipedia. Thats what my days are filled with, in my down time I play video games.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
They are subjects that are either science fiction or adventure books like Ted Bell, Tom Clancy etc.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first real story I wrote was called Harbinger, it is a science fiction work that I still hope to turn into a project
What is your writing process?
It starts with my research work, if I am in an area I think is interesting I will create a lesser work for my books.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first real story I read was a book called the screw tape chronicles by CS Lewis.
How do you approach cover design?
I try to find things that speak to the subject of my book, in Behind The Faith Revelation, the Lion with the red eyes and the cloud like appearance of his mane represents the lion of the tribe of Juda and appearance of Christ at his return. Revelation 1:14 and Revelation 5:5, but in Advanced Citizenship there are two covers, the destruction of the planet represents the apocalypse and in the new cover there is a goat and a sheep which represents the activity at the final judgment.
What do you read for pleasure?
Ted Bell Novels
What is your e-reading device of choice?
What's the story behind your latest book?
My first book Behind The Faith Revelation touched on a number of subjects that people wanted to hear more about, Angels and Demons, the entirety of the salvation question etc. So I wrote Advanced Citizenship and expanded on the subjects.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Control and simplicity, the only difficulty is the promotion aspect.
