Interview with Lazar Jones

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I need to write. I need it to survive. There are many drawbacks that come with giving yourself to The Wolf.
Who are your favorite authors?
Anyone currently involved in pumping out smut for the discerning adult market. Also, Mark Twain or whatever.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
My new job takes up a lot of time. I'm currently employed by the state to generate moving violations, meaning, I speed down highways to encourage other drivers and lead them into radar traps. I'm also adept at causing sudden lane changes. It's a 1099 gig, but it pays the bills.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually by doing a search for "The Empire Never Ends" and "Basic Assembly Instructions." One or two hours of this will yield fruitful results.
What is your writing process?
Step 1: Go out for a nice seafood dinner.
Step 2: Make passionate love to my date.
Step 3: Hide in her closet and write furiously while pretending to try on her shoes.
Step 4: Go to Denny's for a much needed cup of coffee.
Step 5: Move to another city.
How do you approach cover design?
I don't. Cover designers usually approach me for spare change and I tell them to get a job - that's when they hit me with the sales pitch. Crafty bastards.
What do you read for pleasure?
Annotated copies of "The Fountainhead" are always good for a laugh. Does Hustler Magazine count?
What is your e-reading device of choice?
A clapped-out green Alienware laptop that weighs like 30 pounds. It knows all my secrets, so I can't toss it.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
I find that people are motivated to make a purchase when you're holding their family hostage.
Describe your desk
It's not so much a desk as it is a stack of used Hungry Man boxes that have been glued together. Also, I've got some wicked speakers for my jams.
