Interview with Dr. Steward 7K Lar

How do you approach cover design?
I just use one of the templates provided by Smashwords. It's really efficient, but it has to match what my story is all about.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Ooh, that's a good question.
1. The King James Version of the Holy Bible - best book ever
2. Adjuntant Reasoning: Key - my hottest book that made me the most moolah so far
3. Fahrenheit 451 - just awesome and shows us why we need books - so read!
4. Brave New World - dystopia is the future of our planet (sorry, optimists!)
5. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - can I please travel to Narnia!
There are more books, but you kinda caught me off guard. That's just what I can come up with at the top of my head.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read the King James Version of the Holy Bible. This next part may sound really narcissist. I read my own stuff a whole bunch. Why? Well, because my fans read it. I also read a ton of books about how to become a millionaire. Funny thing is, I will make sure I never become a millionaire. I'm satisfied with being at the $100,000 level. Not there at the moment, but I should be there in a couple of more years. Especially if my success continues to grow as it has been.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Ooh, Kindle. I like to read books about becoming a millionaire on my tablet. Then, I fall asleep.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Following the techniques that I've read from other authors. Trust me, they know what they're talking about! I've had at least 50,000 people read my previous works. Now that I'm with Smashwords, I expect to reach the 100,000 mark. Yeah, I think I'm pretty popular, especially for a B-movie celebrity!
Describe your desk
Expensive headphones, laptop, keyboard piano, printer, scanner, picture of my wife when she was a baby, picture of her twin sister when she was a baby, scissors, calendar with all of my important business events, notepad where I write my plans for Frothism world domination (uh, I mean, future success - yeah), checkbook, phone, medical book, tablet, comic book, another notepad, printer paper, pens, lotion, African hair products (now with cocoa butter!), bandanas, another comic book, manila folders, calculator, watch, business magazine. And all of it is stacked up neatly because I hate messy things. I can't stand disorder.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Texas. I will never move from this state. I love it too much. Down here in Texas, we do things a bit differently. It's all about respect. I respect others. They respect me. I feel that's why I'm at the current level of popularity and success that I now enjoy. I respect my fans. They respect me and love what I do. My love for my fans influences my writing. I want to give them the most perfect product that I possibly can. They deserve it. After all, they give me money. The least I can do is giving them awesome products.
When did you first start writing?
I started really getting interested in writing in the 10th grade. My 10th grade English teacher pumped me up to begin writing. She convinced me to consider becoming an author and to never give up writing. She liked my quirky style of writing. So, if you hate my writing style (which is very dark and odd), you have her to blame! I loved my English teacher. In fact, she was the only teacher that I can actually say I loved. She was so pretty! Really big...um, stop it! She used to sit next to me on the bus when we would have field trips and competitions. Did I have a crush on her back then?! Oh, dear! Did I?!
What's the story behind your latest book?
Adjuntant Reasoning: Key is my latest book. The story behind it is that it focuses on 2011. It is very dark and odd. So, if you like dark, odd, hilarious, quirky stuff, then, you just may love this book. Think about it like this. Over 50,000 people have already read my previous works. I'm quite confident that with this book, I'll be able to reach over 100,000 people in no time.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My 10th grade English teacher. Also, the fact that my fans loved my indie computer games. I gained most of my popularity from my b-movies, indie computer games, and my music. So, my fans motivated me to become an indie author. Does everybody leave positive comments? Of course not. But that's okay. I listen to what they have to say and try to become a better author. It's constructive criticism.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I'm new here. However, I feel that Smashwords will singlehandedly push me into the 100,000 realm. I have a gut feeling that Smashwords will help me reach over 100,000 people. That is my goal. I'm too scared to enter the 500,000 realm yet!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Having people read what I wrote. And then reading their comments.
What do your fans mean to you?
That's obvious. Think about it. My fans give me money. Through donations, buying my stuff, whatever. Think about that. A person decides to financially help me continue to do what I love to do. They take money away from their hard-earned paycheck and give me a little piece of it. That's incredible. Ergo, my responsibility is to never let my fans down. That would crush my heart if I ever did that. I've been in showbusiness ever since I started performing in the 4th grade. I've never let my fans down. I never will.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on my next book! It's a surprise. I'm not going to tell you the title yet. (Laughs mischievously.)
Who are your favorite authors?
God and Jesus Christ. They wrote the Holy Bible.
Myself. Yes, I am one of my favorite authors. Sounds conceited, but it's true.
C.S. Lewis.
Lewis Carroll.
Dr. Seuss.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Reading the Bible. Making money. Smashing my wife. Multiple times. Making more money. Writing a new book. Taking more classes. Getting smarter. Working hard. Eating a bunch of food. Exercising like a monster man. Enjoying life. Sunlight. Praying. Pleasing my fans. Repeating.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Smashing my wife. Multiple times. Playing video games. Playing computer games. Eating ice cream. Dancing to my favorite songs. I can dance really well.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Chance. By luck. Random occurrences.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No, not really. I bet it was really good, though. I hold a very high opinion of myself.
What is your writing process?
I just write. It flows from me like a river. Hmmm, maybe an ocean. I actually have to make myself stop writing. I'm not joking. I have to make myself actually stop writing and force myself to put my pen down.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No, I actually don't. Knowing me, I probably just ignored it.
