About Joe DiBuduo:
I write fiction and non fiction. I like to put a twist into my fictional stories. I’ve had my stories and prose published in anthologies and online> I have one non fiction book and one novel published along with a book of poetry and some short stories.
What inspires you to write?
I wrote my first story to entertain my daughter and found I had little knowledge on the subject so I had to research it. Doing research thrilled me and I realized if I became a writer, I’d have a reason and motivation to do research. I try to make any fiction I write close to reality by doing this research. With the internet it’s so much easier than in the pre-internet days.
Tell us about your writing process.
I get an idea or a prompt and began to write.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I always base my character’s actions on what I’d do in their situation.
What advice would you give other writers?
Don’t write for money. Do it for fun.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self published my first non fiction book. I have a novel published by a friend who is a publisher and I have a memoir coming out that will be published by a traditional publisher.
I’d rather self publish because I keep control. Once you sign a contract with a publisher, they basically own your book and can change what they want.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the industry will go through so many changes that I can’t predict what will happen. I can only guess.
