Interview with Miranda Stills

What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Mostly through spreading news of it to my friends and existing fans, and encouraging them to spread it to theirs.
Describe your desk
A mess! Tons of papers and notes for story ideas.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Grew up in the south and it still effects locals and such. If I don't directly say where a city is, it's a fair bet it's down south even though I live in the Pacific North West these days.
When did you first start writing?
As a youngin! I always liked spinning stories out of my mind and telling them to others. Someone begged me to start writing them down, so I did!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My stuff is pretty out there and I just knew that they'd never be wide-spread accepted.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Just did my first release! We'll see!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting to share my characters with my friends.
What do your fans mean to you?
The world! It is really encouraging to hear that someone besides me wants to know what happens next.
What are you working on next?
Good question! You'll have to wait and read!
Who are your favorite authors?
On James Patterson kick right now.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My cat! She pesters me to move.
