Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. After I created a whole family of people made out of pipe cleaners, I wrote about their adventures. This was around 2000 to 2005.
What is your writing process?
Are you kidding me? It's all over the place! Recently, I've been writing on the bus and subways. Sometimes I write about the story and then realize I need to flush out a certain character more. So then I'll spend a few days just writing about a character. Sometimes I even go shopping for that character.

But I mainly think about what's in my heart. It used to be about the battles in my stories. But now it's more about the people in the story.

    Very good advice. This is a must read for self-publishers. What worked best for me were video trailers, since I am an editor. Mark really goes out of his way to make marketing your book easier to understand. Thank you so much Mark.
