Interview with Nicole Jones

Who should read this book?
At first I thought I was writing for the purpose of sharing with other women who suffer from Endometriosis to show them that they are not alone. Then I realized it is probably more important that anyone who loves someone who suffers or especially doctors who treat women who suffer should be the ones reading so they can see and feel what it is like and be more empathetic.
When did you first start writing?
I have been writing off and on as long as I have known how. My sister always told me I should publish. Endopocalypse is the first book I have ever finished. I was inspired to share my personal story because of the experiences I have had in the last year with Endometriosis. It is a painful disease and what makes it more painful is the way that people treat you when they don't understand or can't see your illness and especially the way doctors treat their patients. I wanted to raise awareness and show support for my Endo Sisters that they are not alone.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I researched all of the choices for publishing and most options took years. I wanted to get my story out now and here it is.
Describe your desk
If I had to describe my desk, it would be controlled chaos. As long as no one moves anything, I know exactly which pile everything is in. To be honest, I wrote my book on the floor, in a chair, on the couch, at the table and outside on the back step. Anywhere I could take my computer with me...you see, my desk is too messy to fit the computer on there!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a lot of pets and they keep me busy. I also enjoy crafts and playing video games. I like to cook and try new recipes. I spend a lot of time with my family.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Nook, but sometimes I go "old school" and get an actual print book. I do not limit myself to just one media.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
It depends on my mood or interest in the moment. I will pick a topic, search for it and when I find something, I always read the sample to see if I want to buy.
