Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Since my poetry is, in large part inspired by current events, reading news from a variety of sources helps me stay abreast of social issues around the world. In addition, I've always enjoyed theology and biographies. I read a variety of poetry, both contemporary and classic.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
For many years, I only marketed my work by word-of-mouth and an old-school blog. I evolved with the times, and used sites such as MySpace and Facebook, until it became seemingly ineffective. Currently, and due to the past growth of my readership through various venues, I primarily just post to my website and market through Twitter as well as a monthly e-newsletter.
