Interview with The Suave Novelist

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Mostly my laptop because I'm blinder than a bat. :-)
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
By talking to people directly online. As a writer, I feel it is important to engage directly with your potential readers.
Describe your desk
Ummm I don't have one. :-)
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?

When did you first start writing?
I start writing by force in my elementary school English class. It wasn't till last year that I decided to write for a living.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well basically Fitness 4Play is a romance series that is LOOSELY based on my past dating experiences. That's a story in itself in which why it is a story. :-)
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Because I can express these creative, eccentric thoughts that are in my head without a publisher's approval.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I assume Smashwords will help build my brand. We shall see.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When a person can get away from the ills of the world and become immersed in my book.

I have fans? Well for the 5 of you out there, thank you for riding with me. I promise to make the next novel better than the last :-)

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
To make a difference in the world. Okay, I really get out of bed because I got bills to pay! :-)
