Interview with Paul Fowler

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I can't pinpoint it down to just five books. There are so many great authors and an endless supply of wonderful literature that's it's impossible for me to narrow it down.
What do you read for pleasure?
A well written book no matter what genre it is.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Word of mouth. Just getting out there and presenting my book to people who might be interested in reading it.
Describe your desk
My desk is fairly organized.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in California. I started writing at a very young age. It's hard to explain, but when I was at a store, I was immediately drawn to blank notebooks. I wanted to fill them up with stories, songs, poems, whatever.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I've been working with The Nashville Bounty Hunters for the last eight and half years, and every case is different. We have had some crazy adventures, and I've been pondering the idea of writing them down for awhile now. Finally, I just decided to go ahead and do it. The great thing about writing a book like this is the author don't have to make up anything. Everything is true, so the writing comes easy.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Being an indie author allows you to have the freedom to write what you want. Being self published is a sense of accomplishment I can say easily compares with any other accomplishment I've had in my life.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
I am brand new at this industry, but I chose Smashwords because of their impeccable reputation. I hope to be successful very soon.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing is that, no matter what happens, you have a body of work to share with future generations, even if it is just your children or grand children. The power of words will never dissipate and those that can write should.
What do your fans mean to you?
Well...if I get any fans, I will be extremely excited. Bounty hunters have been long though of as greedy renegades. My goal is to tell people that we are all not that way. My team genuinely cares about the well being of the community as well as individuals.
What are you working on next?
I will write a second volume of this book which will include our newest team member, Ellen Wallace. Bounty hunting is not for everybody, but Ellen fits in with the team perfectly.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I'm either writing, working, playing music, or fishing.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
My girlfriend, Ellen, introduced me to the world of E books.
What is your writing process?
I can only write when I feel like it. I feel if you force a story, a song, a poem, or any literary piece for that matter, the quality will be compromised.
