Interview with Jacobus Kotze

What's the story behind your latest book?
I wrote many books, dozens, the two legal books here are to help those unable to afford attorneys. Circle of Life was written because I was at that stage in love with my late wife, it seemed to be the right thing to do to write about the circle of life. Your Worst Enemy? Interesting story, a debt collector lied and threatened a good client. I decided to enable Joe Public to fight back - the book has hurt banks enough to negotiate it being unpublished with me, therefore, it is now available free of charge and always will be. But all started with making threats to the wrong man, you have legal rights but the law is neutral, you must abuse it in your favor if you wish to make a stand. Your Worst Enemy (your bank) will certainly abuse you if possible, push back is always a great idea in life.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Word of mouth, Facebook is a waste of money and so would be blogs and ads, word of mouth seems to be the only way.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords gave me a platform when no one else wanted to, always be grateful.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle, because my late wife gave me one as a present and I will never support Apple products, start honoring court orders and we can talk again.
