Interview with Else Cederborg

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember my childhood stories and fairy tale plays, but not in detail ....
What is your writing process?
As I've been on a flow for some time. That means that I - usually - just sit down and start writing. Soon the story and the characters take over and sort of write themselves ...
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
At a very early age I found Alexandre Dumas, but also the Brontë sisters, but also many other writers who offered drama as well as thought provoking characters ...
How do you approach cover design?
To me it'a a question of money as well as of taste. I seldom use designers, but make the covers myself, e.g. with Dreamsite pictures ...
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Those I experienced years ago when I had an old-fashioned publisher. I have to admit that although I enjoy the freedom of publishing ebooks where and whenever I like the marketing isn't good enough ...
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Scandinavia and I like the European life style ...
When did you first start writing?
As a child ...
What's the story behind your latest book?
Sibling rivalry leads to murder. As a rule I don't like or read murder stories, but this book sort of wrote itself ...
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I fell for the easiness of publishing without the "fuss" of publishing houses ...
What are you working on next?
Right now I'm having a pause for thoughts ...
