Interview with Darren How

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I think it was on Greek mythology or some paranormal experience. Either way, it freaked me out.
How do you approach cover design?
I'd go for the clean look as covers can be small when viewed online.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Can I say mine? ^_^ Seriously, it would have to be the last five editions of National Geographic.
What do you read for pleasure?
Facebook.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My trusty mobile phone.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Word of mouth.
Describe your desk
Too clean.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Born and bred in Asia, where the writing culture isn't the strongest. That's where also the opportunity lies.
When did you first start writing?
In my university days. First article ever written was published in the school chronicle.
What's the story behind your latest book?
To share my experience on social media monitoring in fiction.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
This is purely out of interest. Guess there's not much to do on business trips.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Somewhat. Looking forward to more results.

As the saying goes, don’t pick a fight with a poet. During the darkest two years of his life, serial blogger Darren How didn’t just get angry… he got mad. He dealt with it the only way he knew how: write. He wrote of business school and the Asian workplace, and couldn’t decide which was scarier. He wrote of love and friendship, neither of which he was sure existed.
