Interview with M.R. Leenysman

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I'm just getting started, so we will see how much success I have.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Feeling creative, in making characters feel like real people. In some ways, they get to live out my fantasies.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I am currently working on "Third Year After", the third of four books detailing the life and loves of Drew Barnes, in the first years after his father dies. Drew and his girlfriend Patti wind up in a relationship with his mother Tina, and a number of other characters introduced along the way. The first two volumes of the series, "First Year After" and "Second Year After" are already available on Smashwords.
What do your fans mean to you?
I like knowing that people out there are enjoying the stories I write, and since it's erotica, that means they are actually getting off on it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm a software consultant by profession, and when I'm not doing that, I'm helping my step-daughter raise her two daughters, with the three of them living with me.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was "A Dream for Papa", present here as one of the short stories in a collection by the same name.
What is your writing process?
Come up with the story idea first, then depending on the expected length of the story, I'll either write it in a few sessions, or outline it and work on different pieces as they become clearer in my mind. More than once, I've written the ending before I get around to the middle.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
One of the first science fiction books I ever read was Edgar Rice Burroughs' "At the Earth's Core", and I've been a Science Fiction fan ever since. That in turn resulted in my interest in computers, which led me into the career I'm in.
How do you approach cover design?
I keep them fairly simple, usually combining some piece of stock art with the text for the title and subtitle.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Too hard to choose five. I would normally rank Robert A. Heinlein's "Time Enough for Love" as my #1.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing on the Literotica site around March of 2016. I did not start to try and sell any of that work until later in that year, with a really concerted effort beginning in January 2017. This is when I began posting my ebooks to Smashwords.
