Interview with Brit Lowe

What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
You see that is what is so fantastic about Smashwords, they market my book for me. I can offer coupons to the public when a new book gets published to encourage readers to sample my book and hopefully tell others about it. Word of mouth is a powerful thing.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in West Texas where the wind begins. I was influenced by such authors as Willa Cather, Taylor Caldwell, and Nora Lofts all of them were female writers. In my male dominated environment it was refreshing to know and read women authors because I am a born writer. I wrote a screen play for my 5th grade class which we all performed for the public in our annual school play. My family were ranchers/farmers who loved to read. My mother and father were very well read and openly discussed politics...loudly, since they were on opposing sides. This gave me a good birds eye view on the world of politics and an overwhelming desire to communicate through writing. When you read my book The Truth About Colloidal Silver, by Brit Lowe, you will see that my bravery at attacking Big Pharma is directly related to watching my parents go at it tooth and nail each defending their own point of view.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I was a Registered Nurse and my specialty was Operating room nurse...I was addicted to it. Couldn't wait to get to work and hated to leave work because its a rush seeing a patient in trouble when they first come in but when we worked our magic they thrived! this happened over and over. I developed an allergy to latex. Latex is the dominate material in operating room tools, i.e. sterile packs, gowns, masks, gloves, etc. My face had open runny sores with pus and blood oozing from them. I went to see Dr. Richardson in Harlingen, Texas. As soon as I walked thru the door of his office he said, " You're an Operating Nurse aren't you?" I said, "How did you know that?" He said, "because I can see where your mask lays on your face. Its exactly where the sores are." Then he went on to say, "The good news is you're alive, the bad news is you will never again be able to walk into an O.R. suite or a hospital again or you WILL die." He said, "There have been in this year alone 500,000 cases of healthcare workers either died or are in a comma from Latex poisoning. I was devastated.

I moved to Taos, New Mexico and lived out on the mesa where there is nothing to be allergic to except sand. I was very ill and lived in a house with dirt floors no electricity, no running water. I lived like this for two years until I was well enough to function again. I had lost the love of my life -- surgery. The only options for me was working with the elderly or in psychiatric nursing. Very little latex is in the environment in these areas of nursing. Noble as they are, they are not exciting and they didn't make me want to get to work sooner that later. But I was lucky to be able to work in these two nursing specialties. I could make a living again.

After going back to work I met Dr. Monteith. He was a physicist and worked at Sandia Labs with a fellow by the name of Robert C. Beck who invented Colloidal Silver generators and his "black box" that cures all so called incurable diseases. Dr. Montieth gave me a video of Robert C. Beck's Granada Seminar showing how colloidal silver works and how to make a generator, how to make the black box and two other healing electro-machines. I felt transported!! I was so excited. I felt this was Gods way of making up for loosing my career in the Operating Room. I could again help other people by teaching them to cure themselves with a colloidal silver generator. This machine is truly a gift from God. In my book, "The Truth About Colloidal Silver" I go into detail about Dr. Beck and the difficulty of getting colloidal silver to the people. Since then I have made thousands of generators usually giving them away because the people who needed them the most were not able to pay for them. And they all healed themselves. The people who bought my generators were told the cost of this generator will be enough to make three generators for those people who cannot afford one for themselves. In order to reach a wider audience I wrote my book "The Truth About Colloidal Silver." Now I am in the process in writing another book, How To Make Your Own Colloidal Silver Generator. I hold seminars teaching others how to make a Colloidal Silver Generator. Contact me at I would love to hear from you.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I don't like to be limited. Being an indie author allows me to say what I want to and to get the news out to my readers things they need to survive in our troubled world. And hopefully be entertained as well.

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
They promote my work. They advise me and they keep the faith with me in printing my work just the way I wrote it. I have had publisher/editors that rewrote my work to the point of word salad. Destroyed my Voice. Smashwords shouts from the highest mountain here she is and here is her legacy.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest feeling for me is to put words to paper with all the emotion in me, all the greatness to be, all the love of life and the joy of helping others with my work
What are you working on next?
I am working on another book with the working title "Taos Tales" about my experiences in Taos, New Mexico. Taos has made me laugh, made me cry. There are stories about the people who come here with great expectations of finding happiness surrounded by the Sangre De Christo Mountains of Northern New Mexico only to find they really have been drawn here to meet themselves. Some leave right away, unable to tolerate the harsh reality and others stay a lifetime. We have a saying here in Taos..."Mama Mountain with either welcome you with open arms or spit you out." You don't have to wait long to find out which one you will experience. Another saying we have here is, "If you want to make a small fortune in Taos, bring a large one with you."
Who are your favorite authors?
Thats a tough question. There are so many. So I guess I have to say the most influential author is Lee Carroll who writes the Kryon books. Next would be my need for adventure in my reading so that would include but not limited to Clive Cussler, James Patterson, Agatha Christie, And not so well known authors such as Nora Lofts, and Thomas Costin who wrote The Silver Chalice and Below the Salt.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Exclusively on many talented authors to choose from where else would I go?
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, of course. I wrote poems as a young child. Long soul searching poems with a sad ending. But the first publicly acclaimed work was a screen play I wrote for my 5th grade class to preform for our annual school plays. The critics were brutal.
What is your writing process?
I write my books in my head first before I begin to put pen to paper. Then I just make an outline and I make notes on scraps of paper until I have my book lined up. The actual writing of the book is the hardest part for me. Making it all make sense without too many extraneous words and keeping humor always in the pages.
How do you approach cover design?
I approach my sister the artist and let her have her way with it. Easy Peasy. Her name is Bren Price, you can contact her on her website to see her work. Enjoy.
