Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
Without fans, a writer's carrier is meaningless. Without recognition and appreciation, a writer is just a graphomaniac. I welcome bad and good comments from my readers: bad reviews help me improve my writings, and good ones let me know what is my target audience.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a thriller, based on factual material. Brenda, an eighteen years old girl was raped and photographed by her class mates. They uploaded these obscene pictures on social media. But Brenda was not a usual weak female victim. With exceptionally strong will and determination, she took the justice in her own hands. A few years later, what she did stunned all who was involved in her ordeal, including her investigator, the justice system, those who committed the crime, and their relatives and friends. The story revolves around importance of true justice, value of revenge, and compassion to victims of crimes.
