Interview with Annabelle Garcia

What is your e-reading device of choice?
The kindle.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Facebook advertising.
Describe your desk
It looks like a tornado hit.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up and still live in Houston, TX. I always wanted to live in a small town so a lot of my writing takes place in small town settings.
When did you first start writing?
As a hobby back when I was in High School. I only recently started writing seriously in the past year or so.
What are you working on next?
A full length novel titled Starting Over.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Starting Over is about just that, someone getting a chance to start over.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My good friend Cathy Jackson introduced me to the world of indie authors and I was hooked.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I don't have an answer to that yet. I just published my first work with Smashwords.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Having someone fall in love with my characters.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. Without fans I am nothing.
