Interview with aghzaf brahim

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
What do you read for pleasure?
Very often I'll hear from friends or classmates that they want to read (something other than the textbooks assigned in our classes), but they simply can't find a reason to do it. Or, other times, people will offer reasons they choose not to read on their own, such as not having enough time or that they just don't enjoy reading, but reading for pleasure can have it's benefits. If you can relate to the people who don't enjoy reading, don't have the time or can't find a reason to want to read, here are some reasons that will make you want to run to your nearest Barnes & Noble, grab a hot cup of coffee and sit down with a good book.

Many users feel that this is a fair price for a device that lets read and manage electronic books.

On the other side, e-readers are single-purpose devices. Some of them offer extra features like web browsing, but you should be really careful about it. E-readers have technical limitations (like e-paper screen), and they are not meant to give anything more than a sheer pleasure of reading.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Everybody knows that word of mouth is the MOST effective method of selling and promoting your book. But that puts you (the author) in the passanger seat, not the driver’s seat. You can’t simply wait around for people to talk about your book if you haven’t made the effort to expose readers to it.

Free publicity is also a major book seller because more people trust news promotion over paid advertising. But the Catch 22 on the free publicity ordeal is that, in most cases, you need to sell lots of books to earn free publicity.

So what authors really want to know is this:

What can I do so that to reach the widest audience possible with the least amount of money spent?

So what I’d like to do is share the various marketing efforts I’ve made and disclose some of the sales reports I received as a result of those efforts.
Describe your desk
I thought this would be a fun topic.
I assume many of us do a lot of our writing at a desk. Tell us what your desk looks like.

My desk is usually covered in paper with sketches of characters and plot ideas. It's also typically has about four or five coffee mugs. A bottle of caffeine tablets for the all nighters as well. Lot's of pens and pencils. Bowls of oranges. Lot's and lot's of oranges. My favorite books and some movies piled high on top of my desk.
The drawers are filled with video games and extra printer paper.

So yeah, that's my desk 99% of the time. (The 1% is when I have cleaned it

What is your writing process?
Writing is a process and not an event.

Its a daily ritual that needs a quirk, allows a writer's block and you are accepted if you are conceptually wrong but grammatically correct. Comprehension is important but grammar is smirked at, if wrong.

My process is very simple.

Choose your topic, if you are not given a topic
Research on the topic
Write an outline on the topic
Draft the copy
Proof read the copy twice , but only if you have taken a break after drafting the copy
Proof-read, edit and revise the draft.
Submit the final copy .
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
la chèvre de Mr Seguin,
M. Seguin n’avait jamais eu de bonheur avec ses chèvres.

Il les perdait toutes de la même façon : un beau matin, elles cassaient leur corde, s’en allaient dans la montagne, et là-haut le loup les mangeait. Ni les caresses de leur maître, ni la peur du loup, rien ne les retenait. C’était, paraît-il, des chèvres indépendantes, voulant à tout prix le grand air et la liberté.

Le brave M. Seguin, qui ne comprenait rien au caractère de ses bêtes, était consterné. Il disait :

— Les chèvres s’ennuient chez moi, je n’en garderai pas une.
