About J. D. Tew:
J. D. Tew is an oddball from Minnesota that has an insatiable passion for writing. He has a degree in Applied Science (no surprise there), and also served as an infantryman in the United States Army, earning numerous commendations.
He spends the majority of his days wrangling four kids, cleaning teeth (no, that’s not weird), and creating new worlds through fiction. He’ll never turn down an epic lightsaber battle with his kids.
He often places the majority of his writing efforts into creating characters and worlds that are unique and engrossing, while fabricating plots that evoke emotion from mystery and twists.
Justin’s latest project is a realistic science fiction novel that takes place on Earth, in the not so distant future, which should surface in the spring or summer of 2015.
What inspires you to write?
The behaviors and aspirations of people inspire me.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am strictly a “no outline” sort, and try diligently to challenge the barriers within my own mind.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen to my characters first and foremost to ensure the societal norms are challenged and the outcome is unique.
What advice would you give other writers?
Read peer reviewed journals to evolve your knowledge in fundamental areas. I believe that I’ll never meet my own expectations, but I think this helps me get there.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Two years ago, my friend told me I was wasting my creativity on being practical, so I accepted the challenge and self-published my first novel.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think that power in the market has shifted to self-published authors.
