Interview with D. Ucci

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I'm an avid reader. I've read hundreds and hundreds of books and always admired and envied the authors and their skills. So, I decided that it was about time I put my passion to work. I've always loved to write and started writing poetry in my early teens. It brought me a lot of pleasure having completed my first novel and I hope that each one I write will bring pleasure to those that read them.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords is awesome! It allowed me to create without having to go through the headaches of sending in manuscripts and having rejections and of course, it costs basically nothing. I don't think I could have done it without Smashwords.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to share my work with others that will appreciate it. It's such a wonderful feeling when you've sold your first book no matter how many you may or may not sell. That first sale meant the world to me.
Who are your favorite authors?
Maya Banks, L. Marie Adeline, Gena Showalter are some of my favorites but there are many more.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a full-time job working at a humanitarian organization.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Through Smashwords, Kobo recommendations and also through Goodreads
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The very first non-published one I wrote was in high school. It was such fun! My first published was here through Smashwords.
What is your writing process?
I start by picking what I want the story to reflect. From there I think of where it will take place and then the character names. I write notes, lots of notes and work on the story line bit by bit. There are times I start writing and I go on for hours and other times only write a few words. I have 3 stories on the go right now.
What do you read for pleasure?
Erotica, Romance, Thrillers
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love my Kobo Arc! It's amazing! It's an e-reader and a smaller version of a tablet. It's got light, it displays in color.
