Interview with Jabe Fincher, Jr

Published 2022-08-31.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
The age old word-of-mouth goes a long way but I also add a link to my SmashWords page in all my emails. I have sold books through Apple also.
Describe your desk
It has reference books and notes for about four projects at the moment.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up around Houston, Texas. This enabled me to get a feel for the big city but also for the rural areas. My dad taught me how to fish and how to hunt.
What do you enjoy as a hobby?
I enjoy building wooded model ships from scratch. I also enjoy building historical structures at model size.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I got the inspiration for my latest book, Asset Protection when I was looking for a part-time job after i retired. I realized I had learned, oddly enough, in the ministry. I wrote about some of the principles and techniques I learned and used.
What are some of your probable upcoming topics for books?
I plan to write about preventing home invasions, an update on privacy and identity protection, and probably some other fishing books....I like to write.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in about 1995 when I was a religion correspondent for a small local newspaper in Alabama. I covered the Promise Keepers event at the Astrodome in Houston, Texas
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is great! I first began using Smashwords while I was in seminary. The marketing and publishing advice they offer is wonderful.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy teaching and helping other people with life issues.
What other hobbies do you like to do?
I enjoy fishing very much and I enjoy making my own fishing lures. i may write about both of these in the near future.
What are you working on next?
At this time, I am working on a Bible study for Pentecost.
Who are your favorite authors?
I like Lee Child and William W. Johnstone. I also read Clive Cussler. On the spiritual side, I enjoy Thomas Merton.
