Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy I feel as a writer is the sense of surprise I get from my characters. Sure, I know the plot, where it's going to end up and most of how I want to get there.

Then the characters look at what's in store, shake their heads, and say, "I'm not doing that." A to-do list I knew nothing about gets slapped in front of me. "This is what we're doing instead."

Usually, my intended plot ends up where the characters planned to go. The path they use to get there is so much different--and always better.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly through recommendation. I found new titles and authors more often when I was working at Barnes & Noble.

Now, I have several independent writer friends who are always pointing out what they're enjoying. Also, my buddy Rocky reads so many books a week that he gives me a few good tips.
