Interview with Clifton Pugh

What do your fans mean to you?
I don't have any fans right now. It would be great! I'd love to have fans. It would mean a whole lot.
What are you working on next?
Probably another adventure. The adventures of Evelynn, I have a continuation of that story. I don't know whether to finish the story or make it a series. We'll see?
Who are your favorite authors?
Wow... I have a few, Maya Angelou, J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, and Jack London.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend some of my time doing artwork. I do all my illustration for my stories and I create illustrations for other authors as well. More of my time I spend with my wife and our dog, Shasha.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote, I was in the 5th grade called "Why Me." A little boy ten years old always has to stay home and babysit his little sister, four years old, and she was forever getting into things.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Curious George was the first story I ever read. The impact it had on me when Curious George had drunk a bottle of poison, and it almost killed him. The ambulance rushed to the hospital. Scared me a bit.
How do you approach cover design?
My cover designs are all created by me, begin an illustrator, my mind is always in a formative stage no matter what.
What do you read for pleasure?
I'm more of a magical, mystical and adventurous book reader.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have both iPad and Kindle Fire. If a story I would like to read isn't available on one device, it will be on the other.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I use Fiverr and Twitter for the marketing of my ebooks.
Describe your desk
I try to keep my desk as neatly as possible. I have my desktop, two external hard drives to the right of my desk, a pile of printing papers to the left of me and a coffee cup filled with pens, pencils, and markers. If my office isn't organized, then I'm not organized.
