Interview with Cole Steele

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Discovering that there was a delivery format alternative other than traditional publishing. I have always had ideas for Novels but lacked the time to invest in writing and publishing until now. After a lifetime of reading books and watching movies coming away with the feeling that you couldn't wait for the next installment. I wanted to relay the same feeling. Engaging the reader so that they could not wait for the next Novel to come out.
What are you working on next?
"Crimson Rows" The third novel in the Roman Lee Series. Detective Roman Lee along with his partner Lonnie Temple go up against uniquely powerful adversaries. One that cannot be seen without the use of a microscope, while the other a highly visible CEO of a major pharmaceutical company. Fear is soon spreading throughout the city when a deadly virus is discovered in the ER. The deadly pathogen was thought to be isolated in a remote area of South America. A fatal pedestrian accident links them to a conspiracy that will take them from the comforts of the city into the dangerous depths of the Amazon and a discovery that will terrify the entire world.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. It's why I am continually writing every chance I get no matter where it may be. The checkout line in the grocery store. My apologies if I hold up the line it's not intentional. I want to give back to them all that I have received as a reader myself. Total engagement in the work and wanting to read the next one.
