Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When done right, writing is a form of mind control. Doing that has to be the greatest joy of writing. When people read through different parts of a book, I know what they're thinking and how they're feeling. I know what they're taking away from each scene. It's something that's hard to get from another area in life.
What are you working on next?
For years I've been thinking about this guy who can do anything but only once. So he can fly...that one time. He can have super strength but just that one time. Finally, the main character started coming into focus. Very complex story and character. I'm going to finish it when I'm done with all the In Blackness stuff. However, I'll dabble with it from time to time. It'll be done before the new decade, hopefully
