Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I used to really dislike reading digitally. The bright light tends to hurt my eyes after just a short while, digital bathtub reading is precarious at best, and I have a fetish for paper and the tactile relationship that is built by moving through a book. I have come a long way however, and learned how to just dim the lighting (!) or limit my time staring at the screen, or to switch it up and vary the way I ingest information in a day. I just started getting the paper delivered to my house again. These days, I get a lot of my reading done on my laptop. I usually have a few tasks going at one time and I can keep moving through my various projects and stop for an enjoyable read or a rambling scroll.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
For me, it's always been about building relationships and word of mouth. Getting out of the house, being affected by people and allowing myself to be seen and heard remains the most challenging and rewarding way to share my work and broaden my community. It's the best way for me to think about marketing. Otherwise, it just seems like some boring capitalist scam and I think we can all do without more of that.
