Interview with Mark Spivey

What inspired you to write your book?
Writing a book for me was really a case of wanting to share some helpful knowledge and experience with other musicians and creative people so they might be inspired to have a go and still be able to pay the bills. For many of us being creative comes at a financial cost - i wanted to change that so that at the very least having a creative hobby could actually grow to become something bigger and a good income source at the same time.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like to read how to books and magazines - something that will teach me how to do something and add a skill to my life. I can then use this to help others.
How do you approach cover design?
I like my designs to be eye catchng and interesting with a relevant theme. Typically I design my covers in the similar way I designed my album covers to reflect some of the content in the book.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My trusty Macbook.
When did you first start writing?
Back in 2006 I began writing articles for online article sites to build traffic to my websites.
Describe your desk
My desk is organised chaos. Very often it's the dining room table.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Albany Western Australia in the country. Typically you learn to fix things on a farm.
