Do you belong to any writers groups or other organizations which have helped you. Please share your experiences.
I do not.
What are your goals as an author, how do you define success?
My goal would be to earn a decent living from my books. Success, on the other hand, is having fans who enjoy your work.
What is your least favorite task associated with writing?
Being mad at a person a character is based on, which makes me mad at the chatacter, which makes me force myself to write.
What do you think the future of literature will look like?
A lot better (and worse) for self-pubs like me. Not everyone who thinks they can write a book can.
Could you describe the mundane details of writing: How many hours a day to you devote to writing?
This depends largely on my homework schedule, since I've recently gone back to school full time.
Do you write a draft on paper or at a keyboard (typewriter or computer)?
Typically, I write on paper, then type. For my third fiction book, I'm going to give the straight lining thing a try and see how it works out.
What authors do you like to read?
I'm a HUGE Salvatore fan (he knows it, too. Great guy!)
How do you market your books?
Currently a Facebook profile, local author signings, and a "street team" where I offer exclusives. Do you have any advice for other authors on how to market their books? Not really, still getting the hang of it...if at all. Haha!
