Interview with Millard Delvison

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Painting, drawing and practicing Martial Arts.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look up all kinds of Webb Sites but I mainly write on smashbooks.com.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was in my school newspapers. It was about a character named Charlie Joe. He was trying to make it through school but something always happened to him every day that was hilarious.​
What is your writing process?
I make art and then write about it.Many of my writings teach me as well as others what art can involve.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I read the book "A Wrinkle In Time". It really opened my mind to be curious about the world we live in.
How do you approach cover design?
I design my own covers. The approach is simple. Being an artist I use the talent God gives me to produce book covers.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read sometimes but not as often as I should. My schedule is full of activity. Between practicing Martial Arts and painting there is little time left.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I read off of my i-pad with the program called i-books.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Right now I'm using Smashwords​ marketing techniques but I plan to expand.
Describe your desk
My desk has a computer where I write my books with a lamp and an additional​ table to hold my reference books.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Baltimore City and I was influenced early in life to write but I just recently decided to publish my books. In grade school I finished my test papers so quickly that I had plenty of time to write what was on my mind. I had no paper to write on so I wrote many paragraphs on the back of the test papers. My teacher was astonished and encouraged me to keep writing.
