Interview with Lucky Segopa, Sr

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has made it easy for my publication to reach millions worldwide. The kind of an ability I would have found challenging doing on my own. One stop shop.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The freedom of expression & the lack of oppression from publishing giants that forces authors to write what only makes money.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing the information & my experience in trading Forex. Helping other I suppose.
What do your fans mean to you?
I don't have fans because I'm not a celebrated individual, but those who have took time to read my publication, I stretch my blessings to you.
What are you working on next?
My next book is titled 'Hedge Yourself'. It's about teaching everyday ordinary Joe how to invest in companies/brands they spend their money most on, therefore hedging themselves.
Who are your favorite authors?
I don'r have really. I read so much titles that I written by different Authors. I can easily mention my least favorite.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My kids & what working hard on my trading can do for their future.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm in my office from 6am to 6pm trading, except bathroom breaks & making snacks on the kitchen. Most of my time is spend with my youngest. He's around the house all day with his Nanny.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Referrals & trading forums.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I have been writing since I was 14. My first story was a radio play I recorded with my late brother's small boom box back in the earlier 90's. That's how I ended up writing, making & recording music after high school.
What is your writing process?
I get an idea & then I go wild with it. I only start putting structure to it later. I don't have any formal routine I follow. I go with the flow.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It will have to be the fairy tales we used to read at the library when I was little. I could never understand why everyone, except the Villains of course, always ended up 'Living happily ever after'. Reality was different for us back then. these stories didn't make sense to tell you the truth.
