Interview with Liz Kuba

Who are your favorite authors?
C S Friedman is probably my favorite author. Others the I enjoy are David Eddings and Eric Nylund.
What is your favorite book, and why?
Hands down, my favorite book is This Alien Shore, by C. S. Friedman. The plot is a masterpiece, with the characters of several different story lines meeting up and falling into place for the climax of the book. The characters themselves are diverse and deep, and Ms Friedman does a wonderful job of celebrating non-neurotypical people. The setting, even though it's hundreds of years in the future, doesn't take place on Earth, and effectively has aliens, feels like such a natural extension of our modern society. I read it at least once a year.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love to browse the free eBook section of Amazon (usually the fantasy section). I love finding an amazing hidden get and buying the rest of the books in the series.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Either through the free section of Amazon's eBook library or though word of mouth.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle Keyboard
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing (or marathoning a show on Netflix), I like to play games. PC games (currently addicted to Starbound), console games (Final Fantasy Tactics and Little Big Planet rank the highest), and board games (Settlers of Catan, anyone?).
Describe your desk
My desk at home is in a constant state of flux. It's never too cluttered, but always has a rotation of various items. I like to have a smelly candle nearby, even if it isn't burning. There's almost always notes of some kind laying about.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
As the author of a non-fiction book, the idea of being able to share my knowledge to more people was very appealing. Bra fitting is a subject in which there are many novices and few masters. I know the impact that bra fitting has had on my life, and I want other people to know the same feeling.
What is your writing process?
I'm not the kind of person who can write a little every day. My schedule is too volatile for that, and I hate feeling trapped by obligations. Once I've got an outline put together, I prefer to have marathon writing sessions.
What are you working on next?
Non-fiction writing has been the most natural for me, having written many technical reports for school and elsewhere. Writing a book on bra fitting was an easy process, because there's concrete information to share. I'd like to challenge myself and write a fiction book next. I'm sure it will be a dark fantasy novel of some sort (as that's the kind of novel I love to read).
