Interview with Harlan Beverly
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy writing with creativity and detail. Nothing teaches ideas better than dialogue.
What do your fans mean to you?
I love it when I get emails from fans and former students about their startup successes. See my fans and students succeed is reward enough for me.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a new non-fiction startup novel.
Who are your favorite authors?
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I teach lean startup at The University of Texas at Austin.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a science fiction piece about a boy who escapes from an exploding earth.
What is your writing process?
I like to sit down and knock out a chapter in a few hours all at once, then edit later.
How do you approach cover design?
My brother Justin does my covers for me! Thanks Bro!
What do you read for pleasure?
I read epic fantasy novels for pleasure. Some of my favorites are Wheel of Time and White Gold Wielder.
