Interview with Doug Couse

When did you first start writing?
I started writing in junior high (middle school nowadays).
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I liked the fact that I could control all aspects of the book, publishing and pricing of the book. My goal was to get the book into as many hands as possible.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Well, being new on Smashwords, hopefully by being able to sell more books through their distribution channels.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Knowing that what I'm writing can impact the life of someone who reads it.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. They are why I write and continue writing during the times where nothing seems to want to come out while writing.
What are you working on next?
Diary of a demon which is about a demon that attaches itself to a family already dealing with tragedy in an attempt to destroy their future.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King, Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My family.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Usually with family activities, watching football or yes, even the occasional Xbox game.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Generally by looking in the genre as I write (Christian Fiction) and looking at how the book has been reviewed.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was very dark and dealt with evil spirits. Nowadays, I'm sure a school would have called my parents and said what in the world are you letting your kid read/watch!
