Interview with Edward R Hackemer

Describe your desk
My work space is neat and clean. However, it is not always orderly.
How do you approach cover design?
I create my covers by trying to include the main theme of the story into a picture that is easily understood by the potential customer. I try to be truthful, and not surprise or suppose.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
"1984" ~ George Orwell ....reason .... the shocking truth.
"Oliver Twist" ~ Charles Dickens .... reason .... life as it was in mid-1800 London.
"Alice In Wonderland" ~ Lewis Carroll .... reason .... it's a marvelous adventure.
"The Great Gatsby" ~ F Scott Fitzgerald .... reason .... why else? love, lust, longing.
"Martin Eden" (my newest addition) ~ Jack London .... reason .... life's desires create life's consequences.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My PC. I have complete control. Next question, please.
Who are your favorite authors?
Bob Dylan and T.S. Elliot.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I get out of bed each day because the alternative is not to.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Walking, driving, or playing pick-up-sticks.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look on-line. The library just doesn't seem conducive to e-books does it?
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Nope. I was in high school, I'm sure. It was either a lousy play or a shitty poem.
What is your writing process?
Write, read, edit, re-write, read, edit, and hope for the best. Next question ...
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Nope.
