Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
I design my covers based on the story within. I love graphics and form, so I generally end up with an eye-pleasing combination of those plus splashes of color. I'm quite particular when designing my covers because it's the first impression the reader sees. I feel an obligation to show my reader, what lies within the pages of my book, in picture form first.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like to read biographies and non-fiction the most. I think that life is more interesting and unpredictable than fiction, most of the time.
