Interview with Eugene Walker

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first stories I ever read were in the Bible. I was fascinated by the story of Jonah and the whale, Sampson and Delilah, Moses and The Red Sea, and many others.
How do you approach cover design?
I look for a designer who can put together a cover design that is BOLD and IN YOUR FACE!

With all of the competition online for selling books. YOU HAVE TO BE COMPETITIVE AND REACH THE READER'S EYE FIRST!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. Shut Up, Stop Whining, and Get a Life! by Larry Winget
2. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
3. It's Called Work for a Reason! by Larry Winget
4. The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason
5. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

I like these books because they challenge me into a new way of thinking. My favorite author of all times is Larry Winget. Just when I start feeling lazy, slacking off, or making excuses, reading Larry Winget's books gives me that HARD KICK IN THE BUTT AND REALITY CHECK that I need to get back to work and push forward.
What do you read for pleasure?
I do read at times for pleasure, but most of the time I read because I want to get the knowledge of how to do something new. It's amazing that the more you read, the more you realize HOW MUCH YOU DON'T KNOW! If you want to be successful at ANYTHING...YOU GOT TO PICK UP THE BOOKS!
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I read mostly on my Apple IPad.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Press releases have worked great for me, but soon I will be doing a lot more social media and video marketing.
Describe your desk
My desk is simple. I work on 2 computers for the books that I write. I use my regular computer for writing and my Apple laptop for editing.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Dallas, Texas. I like to write my books in a conversational manner along with a bit of southern hospitality.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing short stories when I was 9 years old.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I like to help other authors succeed in this writing business, just like I myself have. My latest book is called "Breaking the Bank with Amazon Kindle". This is a MUSH HAVE BOOK for anyone looking to EARN MONEY ONLINE with their eBooks. In this book, I highlight the methods SUCCESSFULL AUTHORS have used to earn a GOOD INCOME with their books.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
What motivated me to become an indie author is the FAST DISTRIBUTION and WORLDWIDE REACH the internet has been able to provide. It's a GREAT FEELING to know that YOU HAVE CONTROL over your work and you can get it out to the MASSES at the click of a FEW BUTTONS!
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is an AWESOME PLATFORM FOR ANY AUTHOR wanting to get into this business of writing. They have WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION, THEY ARE EASY TO USE, and THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS WONDERFUL! Smashwords is one of my favorites.
