Interview with Benjamin Raji

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords makes ebooks publication a dream-come-through for me
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy of writing for me is that my published writings can be read across the globe if I become a premium member at Smashwords.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans means everything to me. Without my fans my works are not seen and appreciated. Fans sometimes are like birds who pollinated the globe with seeds, wherever they flies. Fans are no different, they spread the words of a good writing among friends and peers.
What are you working on next?
Treasures - Marriage Edition
Who are your favorite authors?
John Steinberg - Of Mice & Men
C Lewis - Mere Christianity
The Death of a Salesman - Arthur Miller
Rick Warren - Purpose Driven Life
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My life's ambition inspires me to get out of bed each day and that ambition is to be a help to someone, anyone!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, I am either praying, driving, prospecting for new clients for my roofing business or simply taking naps.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Words of mouth.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote a journal titled, "Give Me This Mountain."
What is your writing process?
My writing process begins with brainstorming why and what I should write about, research the topic, gather materials, organize my thoughts into headings and subheadings, write rough drafts, then begin to put chapters in orders I would like the book to flow.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, a long time ago in elementary school. It's about a boy who began to walk the same day he was born.
His name was A-jan-ta-la
How do you approach cover design?
I have to admire a cover to love the contents and that makes me think of a simple, but radiant cover design.

Until now, you and I have described, and defined treasures as wealth or riches stored, accumulated, especially in the form of precious metals, money, jewels, and so on… However, the scriptures define treasure as a valuable person, or thing such as a collection of money, jewelry or other valuables. Jesus Christ is the only valuable person. As such, the real treasure is Jesus.
