Interview with Jordan L. Hawk

Published 2018-07-12.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are my reason for publishing! They've allowed me to make a living as a full time writer, and they keep me going when a book seems like it will never end.
What are you working on next?
Currently (7/2018) I'm working on the 4th Hexworld novel, Hexhunter. This book will finally feature the story of fan favorites Bill and Isaac, and I'm very excited to share it with the world!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I often relax by playing video games, particularly Bioware RPGs like Dragon Age and Mass Effect. I love any game that tells a good story and lets my character make friends--even better if there's a romance involved! :D
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do! I was in kindergarten or first grade, and wrote a story featuring twin cats. Somehow it ended up being a PSA about getting your pets neutered. I was a weird kid.
What is your writing process?
For a full length novel, I spend a month researching/outlining, six weeks on the first draft, and two weeks of revision and beta reads. I try to adhere to the schedule simply because I'd never finish anything if not for deadlines.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read a lot of nonfiction, probably to no one's surprise. I also enjoy thrillers and YA horror.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I've read primarily ebooks since 2001, so the devices have changed multiple times over the years! Right now I use either my Kindle Fire or the Kindle app on my phone.
Describe your desk
I have a treadmill desk, which is good because it doesn't have a lot of desk space, so I can't keep piling up (and ignoring) filing.
When did you first start writing?
I started making up stories very young, but I first realized I wanted to write when I was 8. I never changed my mind.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I was in traditional publishing for about a decade before deciding to go indie. By then I felt I knew the ropes, understood the challenges ahead, and could run my own business.
