Interview with Jordon Ross

When did you first start writing?
A journal when I was about 8 or 9 years old.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The thought of hundreds of people reading and enjoying something I created.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was an attempt at writing about The Big Bad Wolf eating people all around town.
What is your writing process?
I like to jump in with a general idea. This way, I feel that all the good ideas can flow as I write.
How do you approach cover design?
I go for simplicity. I like to leave the images within the head of the reader.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Simply putting a link in a forum signature, or letting the book sit with a few keywords typed in. It has worked very well.
What do you read for pleasure?
This will be slightly narcissistic, but I read my own books.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the country as well as the city. I feel that living in a rural and urban setting gave me unique views on things that most people would not have. This would give me the thought process I have today, that has made me the author I am.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle for Android. Quick to load, easy to use.
Describe your desk
Wires, receipts, bottles, and a tin of mints
