Interview with Susan B. Cummings

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I do lots when I'm not writing. I live in a small cabin in rural Alaska with 3 cats. I try to have a garden in the summer and I typically go fishing for Salmon when I can. I do typical Alaskan things and it is pretty cool waking up everyday in Alaska.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was a short love story about a boy I liked falling in love with me and marrying me. I was in 3rd grade maybe. It was really sweet. I thought he was going to marry me. I think he pushed my in the mud instead.
What is your writing process?
I've had a very exciting sexual past so I'm able to pull from those amazing experiences and mingle them with current situations that turn me on and things I see in movies.
How do you approach cover design?
At the moment I have an online media person who does all of that for me. He is great. In my day everything was printed on low quality paper on smut magazines and sometimes it would take months for the magazine to print your story. I'm simple amazed at what the internet can do and none of it phases my guy. He takes it all in with a smile like he has had the internet his whole life. I say I need a cover and the very next time I see him he has something. He is great. I can't say enough about him.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read romance, thrillers and historical pieces. There is a lot of awesome history in Alaska so I like to read about it and then go to the places. It is almost like reliving the history. I really want to do a historical piece on Alaska about the outlaws and the whorehouses and the prostitutes.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have an iPad that I use for reading and writing. It is really easy to use and I can have access to all kinds of libraries.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Like I said before I have a guy who does this. He uses a lot Facebook and stuff like that. He keeps talking to me about a website but I really like what he has done with Facebook and it is really popular so I think it is only a matter of time he stops getting frustrated or maybe a website would be good. We do very little at the moment but that is only because I've just started publishing my own stuff.
Describe your desk
I write on an iPad so my desk is where ever. By a fireplace or outside under a tree. Typically I'm in a secluded area when I write so I have very little distractions.
When did you first start writing?
Mid twenties. I saw an ad in one of my boyfriends pornos that they needed writers and I applied and got the gig. Once I had some money under my belt I submitted rejected stories to others and went on from there. Then they stopped accepting my work or they stopped paying as much. I wrote in school but nothing ever came of it. I never really wrote wrote until I started getting paid. Some of my early stuff was really really bad.
What's the story behind your latest book?
At the moment Desires is a collection of erotic short stories. I am currently working on two other longer pieces of work. One is going to be about 10 chapters and the other one with be similar. I'm very much excited about them.
