Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Although I work with words, images have a strong impact on me. So, it is definitely the cover that draws my attention first! I like creative covers that don't immediately tell the whole story. They make my imagination work and make me want to find out more about the book. As I read books of various genres, I don't usually choose specific categories. Of course, I'll definitely look for a book a friend has suggested!
When did you first start writing?
It was almost six years ago. I had several ideas into mind, inspired by landscapes, music or history. So, I decided to write them down. I had plenty of free time back then and I thought it would be a creative way to spend my time. I had never thought of writing before. But after that, I found out writing is what I want to do for the rest of my life!
