What do your fans mean to you?
Fans are like that one friend your holding out on with a BIG secret and you just have to come up with a way to get them to make you tell them. It's hard, it's painful, but you have to tell your friend-your fan this secret. So you beg them to twist your arm, beg them to ask, even beg them to beg, and in the end, you tell them the story/secret and both of you are happy. The author is happy because he got to tell the story, and the fan/friend is happy because it was a good story/secret.
What are you working on next?
I'm actually working on the third novel in a series. My other two are already in print, but sadly will not hit my favorite place (Smashwords) until January of 2017. I'm thinking that my third novel will come straight to Smashwords. The series is about a pair of Police Psychological Profilers trying to tap into the minds of victims to understand why the victim came to such an end, and with the experience of searching the mind, they can use that to create an algorithm to help them in current criminal profiling. It's some deep minded stuff that challenged friends, relationships, the boundaries of the mind, and somethings, the sexual envelope of desire.
