Interview with Dav Santos

When did you first start writing?
In fifth grade, scribbling down ideas for this short story I wrote for my school's writing contest.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy in writing is to see other people love reading my works as much as I enjoyed writing them.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are the backbone to every successful author. If you have no fans to support you, you cannot succeed. I don't have many, but I love them all.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I don't know. Why do I get out of bed everyday? I'll get back to you on that.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Eating. Going out with friends. Sleeping. Playing League of Legends. Listening to K-POP. Thinking of writing. Eating.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I just browse the Net for some free ebooks to read, depending on the genres I'm in the mood for.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Oh yes. It was about this group of four people trying to save the world from a volcano that could only be stopped by sacrificing one of their friends to the wrath of the gods. Oh what an imagination I had when I was young. :)
What is your writing process?
1. Think.
2. Formulate the characters, setting, and plot.
3. Pull out every hair from my head in stressful anguish.
4. Finish up.
5. Publish.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My smartphone, and my PC.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Yeah, I use social media a lot.
Describe your desk
To the right are a couple of notebooks. One is filled with character and setting descriptions for my *planned* books, another with poetry, and another is my makeshift Book of Shadows.
In front of me is my PC's monitor, with speakers built-in.
The left side is an empty, all-purpose space. I usually eat while I use the PC, so this helps out a lot.
