Interview with Ian Kidd

When did you first start writing?
I have been writing since I was a little kid. It has always been something that I really wanted to do.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I decided to go the indie publishing route for a number of reasons. One of the main ones was because of how few publishing companies will even look at unsolicited manuscripts or unrepresented authors these days, it is also a fact that a lot of my writing is fairly quirky and different - my "Ian's Gang" series is a curious mix of genres and also plays out in a slightly odd format for a series - and rather than keep bashing against walls and trying to fit a square peg into a round hole it made sense to take charge and do it myself.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is being able to invent and then explore new characters, worlds and even universes, and being able to constantly challenge myself to go into new territory.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I'm not sure if it was the very first one, but I do remember writing a "Dracula" story in infant school, complete with lurid and bloody illustrations. The teachers used to get me to read them to the rest of the class. I suspect these days they wouldn't so much do that as start calling in the child psychologists lol!
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Again, I'm not sure if it was the very first but one of the earliest I remember was "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe". It's a seminal book for a lot of kids I guess, and was certainly one of the first fantasy books I ever read and quite possibly gave me a taste for the fantastic.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in South Yorkshire in the North of England. I guess you could argue that that impacts on my writing in terms of having a strong sense of cheeky humour, a flippant attitude to authority and a somewhat blunt, no-nonsense manner of doing things!
What's the story behind your latest book?
The most recently published title is another in the "Ian's Gang" series, "The Scream Factor.". It's a fun little sci-fi horror, as a series of murders take place in Maltby following a "meteorite" shower. Needless to say, strange things are afoot! There's also some nice bonding for Ian and Fae Dupont, Maltby's rather eccentric and flirtatious new Army Commander!
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has certainly helped to spread my books around almost all of the available e-book platforms and thus increased my exposure to potential readers.
What do your fans mean to you?
I think fans are very important. If there are people who get your writing, your characters and what you are trying to do, then the last thing you want to do is disappoint them. It's very important to play fair with characters and continuity and to not cheat the audience. You're only cheating yourself if you do, after all.
What are you working on next?
The next release will be Ian's Gang - The Complete Season 1, which is a compilation of all of the stories from Season 1 into one nice bumper volume! The other seasons will also be released, slowly but surely, in compilations in due time!
My next actual title will be the next "Ian's Gang" story, "Revenant", which will be out in December. Carol Braithwaite, who is Claire's sister and the teenage sweetheart of both Matthew and Robert, comes back from the dead! She's been dead since the series began, so suddenly bringing her back into the mix certainly shakes some characters up! I must admit, I love writing for that whole milieu of the Braithwaites and Matthew and Robert. It's all that power, money and dysfunction, it's so delicious!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing, I spend my time reading, watching movies and cult television, and engaging in my secret forbidden passion - reading Harry Potter fan-fiction lol!
