Interview with Sable Lovekraft

How do you approach cover design?
I approach cover design with stealth and guile. I sneak up on it, then throw it to the ground and then wrestle it into submission. I use Gimp because they like being used. I asked a friend of a friend to get the covers designed and they were willing to help, for quite reasonable prices but my publishing deadline came and they weren't done. So maybe the next edition. Perhaps I should have told them when the deadline was.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I read on my phone or laptop. There's nothing that beats a good old dead tree edition though. One day world! One day!
Describe your desk
My desk is a mess. A tidy desk is one that doesn't get used enough. Every time I publish something though I move the mess around a bit.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Well I was watching YouTube and these people on it were describing reading smutty stories and I thought to myself "I can do that". So I did. I dedicated my book to the person who 'inspired' me the most.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
That's not an easy question to answer. I like finishing. I like people reading what I've written and getting off on it. I mean enjoying it. Yes.
What are you working on next?
I'm just going to write this series and then possibly write another and then another. We'll see.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Being alone in bed. get the right person in my bed I'd could possibly never leave. Except for food and, you know, hygiene.
What is your writing process?
I write by opening Scrivener, setting myself a word count for the day and then dividing that number by two hundred. I then stick that many sweeties beside me in a line and I eat one every two hundred words. Some days I can clock over two thousand words inside four hours. The power of sugar compels me! The power of sugar compels me!
When did you first start writing?
As a child. I have always loved books. When you love something you create more of it, no? I don't remember my first story but it probably involved dragons, princesses or spaceships. Possibly even all three. Princess Leia was probably my first girl-crush, you know?
