What inspires you to write?
The born desire to entertain people – a hope of stumbling upon truth – the chance to share something with my girl
Tell us about your writing process.
I close my eyes and reach for that honey bear. Outlines are destructive and ruin the experience. My advice falls with many authors: JUST DO IT – otherwise, you’re cheating yourself in a paint-by-numbers routine and being close-minded
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
It’s their story – I’m just the guy who yearns to tell it. I learned a long time ago: they will tell it to you, you just have to listen, watch and transcribe – that’s where your heart/soul/talent comes into play
What advice would you give other writers?
Just do it
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I went with Amazon KDP because it’s a beautiful idea in action. It’s challenging and important to tackle the self-marketing monster. I write and promote every day. I only hope to make it to “the big guys” someday, but we have this “vetting ourselves” process – I had to jump in. With Amazon, I can at least preserve my chapter-breaks, save paper and keep costs low for consumers – and I’m eternally grateful for that!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It’s a conspiracy without any leaders. It frees me, it scares me. I don’t know what to think anymore. Can’t play if we can’t audition – and we can’t audition if we don’t attempt this awesome madness. We are the magickians – we were good-feared in our time – we have to get back to that. “Comfort the disturbed, disturb the comfortable.”
