Interview with Andrew Bushard

Published 2016-08-08.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in a diary in 6th grade. I wrote some poetry and satire during junior high. I started writing zines in high school. I started writing books in 2013.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Profits and a desire to further my creativity.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has great distribution and since it costs nothing, you can profit more easily.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing what's in my soul and inspiring others.
What do your fans mean to you?
I love you; I know we have so much stuff for free, so I appreciate the fact you will pay me something even though you can get other entertainment for free.
What are you working on next?
I am working on marketing now; focusing the vast majority of my energy on that.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My freedom of speech life mission!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Marketing.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I try to find indie authors whenever possible because I strive to support indie art. I have bought some indie books on Smashwords. I also try to get self improvement ebooks.
How do you approach cover design?
I struggle with this because it costs significant money. I have tried designing covers myself. I paid a couple of illustrators a small amount. Smashwords recommended an online cover design tool called Pixlr Express that enabled me to improve my covers by myself at least even if they may not be the best. I got an professional illustrator referral for my most recent cover and though I paid more, the cover turned out great!
