What inspires you to write?
I want to share my experiences on the spiritual path with a wider public. I have dedicated my entire life towards this goal and writing and publishing is one of the best ways to do this. I can talk to one or two people when I meet them personally, but the printed word can reach many more people for a long time to come.
Tell us about your writing process.
I generally do not use an outline when I write however if you are a beginner it would make sense to write out a few basic ideas and then using that list go on to flesh the ideas out with more writing.
What advice would you give other writers?
Set some time aside for your writing and try to do a little bit each day
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I published with a friend who works with other writers and teacher in my genre. We are a small press somewhere in between self-publishing and an indie publisher.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Electronic and spoken books will be important, but print will still be around for long time to come.
