Interview with A.R. Von

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has helped me more than any other book site to date. They've made my life as an author SO MUCH easier by helping to simplify the distribution of my work and offering some amazing opportunities to share.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy is being able to share my imagination with so many others. To actually help them to escape their everyday world, right into one of mine. It's an amazing feeling that only continues to grow in time.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean EVERYTHING to me! I'd be nothing and nowhere without them. They're feedback alone has helped me immensely to become a greater writer.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on the next book in the Wunder series along with a new erotic series (shhh...)
Who are your favorite authors?
I have too many to name them all. Just to give you a tiny idea: Stephen King, Karen Marie Moning, Patricia Briggs, Laurell K. Hamilton, George R.R. Martin...
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life and living it. I have a home full of love with my husband, children and our pets. I can never claim to have a boring day and I love it!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Normally either exercising, reading, playing with my pets or something else that randomly pops up.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Diverse. I read (almost) everything. More paranormal and indie than anything else.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first piece I ever wrote was a poem for my mother. I don't remember it in detail, but it made her smile and that made me write many more from there on out. My first published story is The Approach (Wunder #1).
What is your writing process?
It varies from day to day--story to story. I'm an equally distributed plotter and pansier. I write, plot and plan as well as pull things out of some amazing recess in my mind.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No, I can't honestly say I do remember the first story I've ever read. It's pushed too far back into my mind after reading thousands of others.
Please tell me I'm not alone in this lol
