Interview with Jack Francis

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Helped me become aware of basic publishing process and proper text formatting
What are you working on next?
Collection of short stories about people who were the antithesis of success stories. For every winner there is at least one loser. Their stories are every bit as compelling and in some cases much more interesting.
Who are your favorite authors?
Michael Crichton, Tom Clancey, James Becker, & many more
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The desire to be successful. Beds are for sleeping and some acts of passion!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Travel, sport diving, making love to my beautiful wife.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Sometimes recommendation from friends, sometimes by favorite authors, sometimes by random browsing.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes of course. It recounted my early experiences with the dawning of my sexuality.
What is your writing process?
Basic outline to define the skeleton but free form as the story's personality takes shape. Writing is like a Ouija board; the answers mysteriously appear when you ask the right questions.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Older Kindle. Battery life is amazing!
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
To be honest, none yet. I may try blogging and Facebook, etc.
Describe your desk
Beautiful all teak desk bought by my wife as a gift when we moved into our new home. Relatively uncluttered as yet with my laptop, printer, and a couple of well used coffee cups.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Please look up 'Criminals Within' for a good story description.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Frankly; fame, fortune, and the promise of a legacy.
