Interview with Jakub Tencl

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I remember. It was tale about two glasses, on my basic school. I had a chance to read it to my friend. It was on schoolyard. More about that I'm writing in my book.
What is your writing process?
I witnessed when some of my friends had a problem with writing, because they had the intention to write a book and one of my friends literally put the question on facebook how to write, he explained that he has a problem to write. He also had an idea that some program will help him to write down everything. Another friend said that he has problem to keep writing. So I can see that writing can be problem. For me it is not that big problem, I think when you exercise writing in every possible occasion; your ability to write becomes a habit. And I was writing since basic school. It is beautiful when you wake up in the morning at sunrise and thanks to unique moment is nothing better than start to write.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
First story that I read was tale about so-called a stupid Jack and the princess. The book was quite big, but I was so engrossed into it that I finished my reading of whole book over night.
What do you read for pleasure?
Honestly, when I finished my last book, I realized that write it and read it are two different things, so I read my book and actually it was much better experience than when I was writing it. Between of mine next books for pleasure belongs "Solomon Speaks" written by Eric Pearl or "The Celestine Prophecy" written by James Redfield.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use "Kindle", but probably I will buy something similar from "Kobo".
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Awareness that I can write :-), but more importantly for me is that I can continue in my work for others, because I am also Hypnotherapist and founder of method of self-acceptance, so organizing workshops, therapeutic sessions, composing of the music, talk to my friends is what motivates me to get out of bed each day.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
The best marketing strategy for me is "word of mouth", when you tell everyone that book exists and such way that the people will ask immediately where he or she can buy this book.
When did you first start writing?
Actually it was on my high school, more about it is in my last book.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Greatest joy for me is the message which I can put into the pages and awareness that sooner or later this message gets to the people.
What are you working on next?
I'm thinking about storytelling tale about those who are feeling isolated far away, influence of new identity on the individual and his or her relationships.
