About Kevin Scott:
Hello all my name is Kevin Scott. I am a 26 year old software engineer currently living in Miami, Florida. I know what you are thinking, what’s a software engineer doing writing a book, and a funny book at that? Well you see I have always been a creative person who dabbles in various forms of art such as music, painting, engineering, etc. I have always wanted to write a book but figured nobody would want to read a book written by an engineer. Writing this book was the best decision I have ever made as it has opened me to a whole new world of creativity and fun that I never knew existed.
What inspires you to write?
Let’s face it everyone has a crazy family along with some pretty unbelievable stories. I am no different but the difference for me is that I have all my crazy family stories in emails. I decided to publish these emails in honor everyone with a crazy family or family story that people never seem to believe or take seriously. I want my readers to laugh at the insanity in my family while learning to embrace and laugh at all of the eccentricities they see in their own families.
Tell us about your writing process.
I have a very methodical approach to writing. No matter what I always find myself rereading and editing portions of the book and it is always done in a step by step process. I use Word and other software to help me outline my ideas and when I am feeling really spontaneous I will switch things up and resort to using my notepad and pencil. I keep everything as organized as possible with multiple versions of the book floating around on my computer because I do not want to risk losing one bit of it.
What advice would you give other writers?
My advice to other writers is that if you have an idea or you have always dreamed of writing your own book then do it. I promise you it will be the most stressful and frustrating time but it is so worth it.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I made the decision to self publish my book for two reasons. One being that self publishing is very easy for new writers with little knowledge of the publishing world. The second reason being that self publishing is a great way to get your book out for millions of readers to see and you do not have to be a millionaire in order to do it.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe that self publishing will become increasingly more popular over the next few years (more than it already is) and big publishing companies will become a thing of the past as authors embrace the freedom of self publishing.
