Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, I do remember the first story I ever read, but sadly I don't remember the name of it. What I do remember was that it had to do with the Holocaust. Like my book it was a book of stories from the survivors and what they did to survive. Some of the stories were so graphic that I couldn't imagine going through what they went through. The one story that stuck with me the most was a man who drank his own urine to survive. It was this book that made me want to change people's lives with what I wrote.
How do you approach cover design?
I approach cover design by rereading what I wrote. I try to pick the one thing that is the main idea of the story or stories. Then I pick a design that will draw an audience.
