Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
If someone chooses to pick up a book of mine and read it, I owe them a well-written, engrossing and satisfying story. It's give and take. I strive to please because the people who read my books inspire me to continue. In this french-fried world, sometimes people accept the sub-standard just because so much of it is available. But that's not what I give my fans. I honor them with the time and dedication I put into each of my books. I don't slap an ending on just because I want to get done. I respect my readers and if they are going to invest a little piece of their lives in my books, I want them to be glad they did.
What are you working on next?
I have three other novels to choose from that are already well-developed. But until I finish the one I'm 3/4 of the way through, I can't think about those waiting. So, truthfully, I'm not sure which I'm going to work on next.
