R.e. Taylor

Smashwords Interview

How do you approach cover design?
I love bright colorful covers that excite the senses to what is inside the book.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.because it is so funny and I enjoyed feeling what the characters were living through.
2. Four Past Midnight. My fave short story of all time "The Breathing Method" is in that book. It is short but very well writtien.
3. Anne Rice's Sleeping Beauty Series. It was the best erotic literature I have ever read.
4. The original version of Pinocchio. It was amazing how time has changed the story. The first version was a blast to read and see how the author(without the Disney touch) was thinking.
5. Carrie Just a fantastic horror story!
