Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
I take at most, the three most important aspects of the story and try to get them on the cover, usually the one main theme, and at most (if at all), two supporting ideas.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
On Writing by Stephen King is probably the most motivational book I've read. I listened to the unabridged audio book, read by King himself. The version I have includes his experience with the hit-and-run, and how he got back on the horse, so to speak.
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman has some of the best prose I've ever read. I've tried emulating the way he turns phrases, with little success, but it is a benchmark I strive for.
Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein is a book I read about every year or so. It influenced a non-Christian religion that is recognized by the US government, so the power of the writing, and just the thought processes of the characters, shows.
The Spenser series by Robert B. Parker shows the PI genre in its simplicity, both in his style of writing, and the character of the characters.
