Smashwords Interview

Your first book Salty Aftertaste has been out since September, how did it feel to publish your first book?
It's been an amazing experience. In a lot of ways a lifelong dream came true. It has also been a huge learning experience for myself. I learned so much about publishing, marketing and writing in general. With anything that's new there's always a few mistakes to be made and now that I have dealt with those mistakes, I feel that the process will be smoother for my next book.
When people hear the title "Salty Aftertaste" they often laugh. What's the story behind the title?
Well... The title has many meanings; there's the obvious funny "sexual" innuendo and because the story is set at the beach, the whole "salty" sea water thing. But what some people don't realize is there's a deeper meaning behind the title. When you think of a "salty aftertaste" sometimes it's a good aftertaste, but sometimes it's a bad aftertaste, depending on what you just ate. The same thing could be said for experiences you go through, sometimes they are good, sometimes they are bad. Every experience stays with you, just like an aftertaste. The book is about the experiences the characters go through and they are both good and bad.
