Interview with Nicole Smith

What is your writing process?
Simply making notes and then taking inspiration from there.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
No. However I've read many books that have influenced my life over the years.
How do you approach cover design?
Thinking of the story and then allowing the design to flow naturally by playing about in a paint program.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I don't have one, I always tend to send a hard copy to a library so someone can actually pick it up and feel it in their hands while also having it on a device.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
None, it's about allowing the fan base (if any) to develop naturally and on a small scale.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Interesting, I'd rather not say.
When did you first start writing?
When I was at school in my teens.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I took inspiration from a interesting advert I saw on TV.
Describe your desk
Chaotic however it is organised so I know where to find items.
