Interview with chris harris

What are you working on next?
Right now I have several projects in the works, two sci fi novels, one a comedy, and the other not so much. I also have a vampire series going, but I haven't made up my mind what I really want to do with it yet. I am also working on a fantasy series, but I am working in collaboration with another author on that one.
Who are your favorite authors?
Oooh...definitely J. R. R. Tolkien, Timothy Zahn, Edgar Allen Poe, Earl Derr Biggers, Agatha Christy, the list goes on.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Uh, I'll get back to you on this one.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Mostly watching tv, or reading to be honest. Although recently I purchased an old Victorian house, and it keeps me plenty busy. Or at least it should be.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I don't really read ebooks so much oddly. I prefer old fashioned hardbound books when I can get them, but paperbacks work equally well in a pinch. Whenever I read anything on a computer screen, I always try to edit it. I hope that doesn't sound pretentious, because God knows my work needs so much editing. I think that's actually why actually.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Nope.
What is your writing process?
A disaster that I recommend to no one.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No, not a chance. I was reading stuff really early in life, and my memory is kaput.
How do you approach cover design?
I generally have a bit of an idea when I am writing the work as to the aura of the story, whether I want bright colors or something dark, and then I let my professional designer do their thing, because they know a lot better about what sells than I do.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Oh good lord...I don't know that I can answer this.
What do you read for pleasure?
All sorts, mysteries are good, and so are epic fantasy. I also love Science fiction as well as non fiction (especially about either history, war, or occasionally psychology and sociology. I highly recommend those last two if you want to write, because understanding people is extremely important for creating believable characters and worlds.)
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Computer. I like multi-functionality of it, such as if I need to look something up that I'm reading about, or whatever. Plus I like the bigger screen. I have a laptop, so it works out well for me.
