About Marc D Brown:
I’ve been writing on and off from the age of 15, mainly my own take on poetry and occasionally dabbling in the odd story…although most of the stories never really came to anything; A lot of work to look back over and finish.
Words of Marc D Brown is my first release and although most of the writings are personal to me, poetry is subjective and I believe you, the reader will have been able to relate to some of the feelings in this book.
As mentioned above I started writing when I was a teenager and the majority of my inspiration came from heartbreak and teen angst. What may have seemed like the end of the world…really wasn’t but with writing poetry, it helped me get through those times.
Over the years writing stuck with me and I’m so happy it did; My writing style matured and as did I, exploring topics and thoughts that people can click with.
My dream was obviously to become a huge rock star and have my lyrics sang back to me by adoring crowds but as mentioned above…I matured and realized that dream was very unlikely to happen but I kept on writing and writing.
Eventually I found that people can now publish their own work online and the Amazon Kindle format was perfect for me, so I clearly took advantage of this, but not with the aim of making millions and being filthy rich; For me it’s still the dream of have people just know of my writing and enjoying it, pretty much in the same way fans of music read and love the lyrics of their favorite bands.
This is my dream!
What inspires you to write?
I’m heavily inspired by music and lyrics from bands I like from The Doors to Slipknot, as well a lot of personal experience.
Tell us about your writing process.
my writing process is all completely at random, if I get an idea…I need to get it written down, I’ve actually had to get out of the shower just to write a line down that I had been thinking about.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never give up, it sounds cliched but just don’t do it. Always keep trying and keep taking risks.
Your first ever step was a risk, you have to keep taking them to move forward.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I chose to go down the self publishing route as at the time it was the only thing accessible to me, most big publishers aren’t willing to take the risk on a little fish in a big pond anymore.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I’d like to think that publishing companies will take more risks and put money into new talent but it wouldn’t surprise me if things got worse, luck was harder to come by so people start printing their own books at home.
What genres do you write?: poetry, horror
