Interview with Qazi Fabia Hoq

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read was Harry Potter and the sorcerers stone during 1998 and I really loved the magical world the author J.K Rowling has created. It increased my curiosity to read more book and novels.
What are you working on next?
Short mystery book! Its a secret, I will release it at the end of May 2017.
What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are like friends, they mean everything for me. I want them to connect with me, review my novels and interact with me. So, yes they are an important part of my life.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well, my latest book "The Smart Psychopath" is inspired by my dreams that I had couple of months ago. When I woke up the next day I decided to get a pen and notepad and I started to outline my story based on what I have dream about. Of course while writing the main story I have changed a lot of things and added some unexpected twists.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Well, I do not know how to answer this but writing has always made me feel content. I write for my own happiness and whenever I have this massive spark of creativity I feel like writing it down and creating something new for myself. I also want to know what people think about my ideas. So, I became an indie author to share my work with the readers.
Who are your favorite authors?
J.K Rowling
Veronica Roth
Jane Austen
Agatha Christie
Alan Bradley
Wilkie Collins
Describe your desk
I would rather call it my bed then my desk. Well its messy, I have one notepad and pen beside my laptop. I also have headphone and my iphone.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Asking people check out my book on Twitter has always worked for me. But I am also working on my skills with marketing on facebook.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Apple for sure!
What do you read for pleasure?
Mystery Novels and Crime thriller!
How do you approach cover design?
I am always extra-cautious with my cover design, I try to do it by myself. I usually take pictures and edit them in microsoft words and in photoshop. Its a long process to get my cover design done.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I generally search through ibooks. I usually look for mystery and crime thrillers.
